Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The luxurious Hotel Fanes is one of the finest hotels in the Val Badia area in a sunny, elevated position affording fantastic panoramic views of the Dolomites. The hotel has a strong history in the area and throughout the hotel, you will find furniture from the 16th and 17th century which embraces their roots.

Warm and spacious rooms, many of which have wooden flooring or walls are lit up by natural daylight and have spectacular views of the surrounding mountains as well as the village below. The interior is exactly what you would expect from a 5 star hotel and is clean, luxurious and of course comfortable.

Not only does the hotel have a very impressive spa and wellness centre, with huge areas dedicated to relaxation where you will find an open fireplace and heated waterbeds to close your eyes and find peace of mind, the main feature is the 25 metre outdoor 'sky pool' with 360 degree views all around - this really is an impressive wow factor that you won't find anywhere else.

Meals are equally as impressive as the hotel and you won't be stuck for choice, especially at dinner where you will be treated to at least 5 courses, many with local themes.  The hotel's sommelier will be happy to suggest wines from some of the best cellars of Sud Tirol and other regions of Italy. 

The nearest ski lift is 500 metres away and the hotel provides a free shuttle service throughout the day. Truly a fantastic hotel with exceptional service.

Transfer time: approx. 3 hours by coach from Innsbruck airport.

San Cassiano

San Cassiano is a delightful village on the magnificent Dolomiti Superski area, well positioned between La Villa and Cortina, and close to Armentarola, with its famous horse-drawn ski-lift! A stunning array of dramatic Dolomite peaks provides an unforgettable backdrop to the incredible 1,220km of varied skiing, which is easily accessible from the resort’s main Piz Sorega gondola. San Cassiano is popular with Italian and British skiers alike, so you will find a particularly good selection of gourmet restaurants on the mountain, as well as simpler, traditional pit-stops. Hug’s Bar and Da La Vedla provide some of the best après-ski in the village, with the Las Vegas Lodge on the mountain providing a lively atmosphere for a final stop-off on the last run home. Overall there is a great deal to discover and enjoy in this latest and very welcome addition to our Italian range of resorts.

All meals are served in the hotel's beautiful restaurant. A rich buffet breakfast with hot and cold options are on offer to start your day as well as organic choices.

A free daily tea time buffet served between 4-5:30pm has a number of both sweet and savoury items to enjoy.

The evening five course gourmet dinners are authentic regional dishes made with locally grown ingredients, something that is very important to the hotel and their philosophy, so much so they grow much of the produce on their farm. Eating such quality food you will of course require quality wine to accompany this, and their cellar will not disappoint. If you get stuck for choice, just ask the on site sommelier who will be more than happy to help with pairing. 

If wine tasting is something you are interested in, then you can ask at the hotel and they will be able to arrange this for you.
