Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Lovingly maintained by the charming and welcoming Rudiferia family, the Hotel Somont boasts a prime location alongside the verdant forests of Val Gardena. The family are clear in their ethos of rest and relaxation, taking inspiration from the surrounding UNESCO World Heritage Site to create a space of tranquility in the Dolomites. The spa area includes an indoor pool heated to 31 degrees and a whirlpool complete with colour therapy lights. There are various saunas including the traditional Finnish, Bio sauna, Infrared aromatherapy sauna and Turkish steam bath all of which are perfect for resting weary legs after a day of exploring the Dolomite mountains from the Ciampinoi lift just 100 metres away.

The restaurant Somont describes itself as taking guests on an Alpine culinary journey and relies on ingredients found within the South Tyrol region and wines from the hotel's own wine cellar which have been carefully selected by the Rudiferia family. In summer months it is not uncommon for the chef to orchestrate barbecue evenings and delicious 4 course meals with a sumptuous dessert buffet are par for the course here.

Rooms have a modern yet unassuming Alpine feel with faux fur throws, alabaster stag heads and pine floors adorning the bright and airy rooms. Each room is styled differently with intricate wallpapers and small touches to truly make you feel at home in this superior alpine hotel.

Transfer time: approx. 2 hours 30 mins by coach.

At the head of the splendid Gardena valley, Selva is located beneath the jagged peaks of this most spectacular part of the Dolomites, a particularly beautiful Alpine mountain chain in the Süd Tyrol region of northern of Italy.

Selva di Val Gardena (to give it its full name in Italian) is also known as Wolkenstein in Gröden in German or simply Selva in the popular local Ladin language, with all three linguistic cultures intermingling to create a fascinating fusion of human life.

We have a good selection of hotels in Selva and a range of activities for guests, especially for walkers who take gentle rambles along lush river valleys as well as more invigorating high altitude ridge treks accessed by an extensive lift system.
