Let’s have a look at some of the finest hotels in South Tyrol. Each and every one offer stunning views, while hiking trails and natural attractions are never far off.
Alpin Panorama Hotel Hubertus
Located in Valdaora, South Tyrol, Alpin Panorama Hotel Hubertus might just be the pinnacle of luxury in the entire Alp region. The exquisite ooms offer a magnificent panoramic view over the Dolomites. In their gastronomic restaurant, you are spoiled with culinary delicacies of the highest level. The spectacular infinity Sky Pool at Hotel Hubertus is 25m in length and 20m above the ground and is without a doubt the most beautiful pool of the Dolomites. In fact, Alpin Panorama Hotel Hubertus has a total of 6 indoor and outdoor pools and 7 saunas. The experiences you can book at the hotel focus on and active holiday in both winter and summer, but let’s be honest here: when the hotel looks this spectacular, you just don’t want to go very far. This is why Hotel Hubertus is my top pick in the list of best luxury hotels in the Alps.
My next pick is Hotel Cristallo, a 4-star-superior exclusive getaway retreat in the heart of Alta Badia. It’s a family-run hotel where you will enjoy warm hospitality, whether you are after an adventure-packed mountain break or a hassle-free family holiday. Hotel Cristallo is an exclusive accommodation in the perfect location where you can go skiing in winter or trekking in summer. There’s both an indoor and outdoor pool, and the spa is a haven with lots of quiet corners. The restaurant provides you with a premium culinary experience.
Hotel Seehof – Nature Retreat
This four-star superior hotel wants to be your private space surrounded by nature. There is a natural lake right next to the hotel. Thoughtful design summons a Mediterranean feeling in Alpine surroundings. The fifty rooms of Hotel Seehof divided into eight types, each and every one carefully designed with natural elements and wood that creates warmth. In the restaurants, all meals are seasonal with the emphasis on local ingredients.
Gloriette Guesthouse is an intimate hotel situated in Oberbozen, right between the busy city and the tranquil mountains. The hotel offers 25 modern rooms divided into four categories, ranging from 30 to 50 square meters. Their restaurant of Gloriette Guesthouse is what they call a ‘uniquely enticing ristorantino’, a small but very nice restaurant serving refined Alpine and Mediterranean dishes. The roof area is transformed into an idyllic spa area. I must say, this rooftop spa is extremely photogenic! The cablecar is very close-by and takes you to the city in around 12 minutes! Gloriette Guesthouse is one of the best hotel options in South Tyrol!
This alpine hideaway features award-winning architecture, an award-winning spa & fine gourmet cuisine. The spectacular views of the majestic backdrop of the Dolomites is the big showstopper at Hotel Belvedere. My favorite room is the Slope Suite Amira. The new Belvedere Slope Suite looks to the Rosengarten and Latemar. The suite is built into the porphytic rock and faces out in an easterly or south-easterly direction. The perfect suite for couples!

The Miramonti is a boutique hotel which defines itself as private, discreet and generous. The Miramonti Boutique Hotel overlooks Merano on the sunny plateau of the Tschöggelberg. Boutique Hotel MIRAMONTI was included in the list of the most extraordinary ‘Small Luxury Hotels of the world’.
