The Vigilius Mountain Resort lies perched above the town of Merano and boasts incredible views of the spectacular Italian Dolomites. The fresh water springs provide luscious surroundings whilst the secluded location creates ultimate tranquillity. From hot stone massages in the spa to cuisine cooked from locally foraged ingredients at the hotel’s restaurant, stay here and you’ll feel that much closer to the breathtaking Italian Alpine landscape.
Just a 30 minute drive from the local Airport of Bozen, it doesn’t take long to escape to serenity. What’s more, this resort is a car free zone, meaning your alpine experience starts at the bottom of a towering mountain valley in the village of Lana, just outside of Merano. The only way you can access this magical bolthole is via cable car. Glide up amongst the fragrant larch woods and take in the views before you have even arrived.
Spacious and contemporary, the suites in the Vigilius hotel are soothing with warming decor and simplistic furnishings, allowing you to focus on the true beauty of the views outside. These airy rooms provide a clay wall to divide the en suite and living area, maximising the specious environment. What’s more, the light wooden floors guide you to the panoramic balcony or terrace letting in the mountainous sunlight and the fresh alpine breeze.
WHY WE LIKE IT
We love how the simplicity of the decor allows nature to flood into the rooms and bring them to life. The pool that drifts from indoors to outdoors is divided by floor to ceiling windows allowing the mountainous landscape to become the decor. Here it’s all about natural beauty enhancing your experience; whether you are cocooned in an algae wrap in the treatment room or breathing in the alpine air on a hike.
