Hotel Rodella

  • The Dolomites Ski Area, Italy, Selva

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The friendly and cosy Hotel Rodella is perfectly placed on its own exclusive little hill with superb panoramic views of the valley and mountains including the Sella Massif and Sassolungo. The unique location does mean resort is a 25 minute walk away but with the free local bus stopping every 30 minutes during peak times and the hotel running a daily shuttle to and from the lifts, this could be the ideal setting for someone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the normal everyday life. Better yet, in good conditions you can ski to the Santa Cristina lift straight from the hotel.

Giorgio Planker and his English wife Susanna run this charming property which for Winter 2021 they have planned a smart and stylish upgrade. This will include an impressive 660㎡ spa with 3 saunas, a steam room, 2 outdoor hot tubs and a very inviting relaxation area. If that wasn't enough you can jump into the heated swimming pool which has a small indoor area and larger outdoor section where you can really appreciate the tranquil setting.

As well as the spa, the lounge and bar are also due to undergo a makeover. The real star of the show however is the hotel's cuisine. Hotel Rodella has been awarded the prestigious ‘Gambero Rosso award’ recognising exceptional Italian food and wine.

This hotel is definitely a little bit special and with every room having a balcony with stunning views of the Dolomites, it's perfect if you need to escape.

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

Set in the Südtirol’s charming Gardena valley, Selva is a gateway to the famous Sellaronda skiing circuit, where you can ski around the gigantic limestone monoliths of the Gruppo Sella. This delightful and not particularly challenging 25 mile tour can be achieved fairly easily in a day. Selva, part of Dolomiti Superski, the largest lift system in Europe, combines the best of Italian and South Tyrolean traditions for a unique ski holiday experience. It offers unbeatable quantity and variety of skiing right on its doorstep, a paradise for dedicated skiers of all levels. The picturesque old town of Ortisei, the principal community and cultural centre of Val Gardena, with its own small ski area, is both chic and traditional, with a picturesque town centre. Ortisei links easily with Selva’s pistes whilst its local Alpe di Siusi ski area is also well-known for its cross-country trails and a thrilling six kilometre toboggan run. Val Gardena is the venue for one of the early World Cup meetings each season. The Saslong downhill run to Santa Cristina - with its famous "camel bumps" - is the scene of the men's downhill on Mount Ciampinoi.
