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.
