Spa & Wellness at the Hotel Tyrol in South Tyrol, Italy
Relaxing and looking out on the legendary Dolomites
At the Hotel Tyrol, we offer something for everyone: a bath with essential oils of rosemary, an endless horizon upon which to meditate from a mountaintop or the searing heat of a Finnish sauna. To satisfy the requirements of our guests, we have a fully equipped Spa area, including a swimming pool, Turkish bath, bio sauna, Finnish sauna, herbal bath, Kneipp bath, as well as a relaxation room with a panoramic view and showers.
Another feature is the open-air heated outdoor bath with bubbling hot water with a stunning view of the Dolomites, helping to regenerate both mind and body. The relaxation area, looking out on the stunning Geisler Mountains, provides the ideal ambience for reading or simply daydreaming.
Relaxing at the Hotel Tyrol in the Villnösstal Valley in South Tyrol
Outdoor Jacuzzi overlooking the Dolomites
Immersed in an unspoilt landscape, our hotel lies in a natural haven with ample space for relaxation. The heated outdoor bath, overlooking the Dolomites, is a total leisure experience in itself. On warm sunny days, coffee and mouth-watering desserts are served under the shade of the trees much to the delight of our guests. Families with children enjoy tranquil moments on the wide lawn near the swimming pool.
After a hike or cycling trip, the more energetic of our guests might continue their exercises in the swimming pool with the Dolomites in the background or in our gym. Health-conscious guests take advantage of the Spa, while enjoying the view of the mountains from the relaxation room.
Villnösstal Valley in South Tyrol, Italy
Peace and relaxation in the Dolomites
The Villnösstal Valley promises rest and relaxation against the suggestive backdrop of the Dolomites. Sprawling meadows and seemingly endless pine forests characterize this landscape. With its 2,600 inhabitants, the district of Funes/Villnöss forms part of the “Alpine Pearls”, an association of Alpine holiday resorts committed to sustainable/’soft’ local mobility. Besides promoting a clean environment, the local community also boasts its own hydroelectric plant, which supplies the valley with clean electricity. A dedicated bus service accompanies hikers to the departure points of some of the most beautiful walks in the Geisler Mountains. This self-imposed choice of sustainability is coordinated with local artisans, farmers and various operators engaged in the hospitality and catering industry. In this way, the Hotel Tyrol contributes to the practice of “Slow Living”. This means that guests have the option to enjoy local and regional dishes, including mutton from the Villnösser Brillenschaft ‘bespectacled sheep’ of the Villnösstal Valley, as recognised by the Slow Food Council. After a day out hiking or cycling in the tranquillity of the valley, a stint in the hotel Spa followed by dinner under a clear starry sky are even more appreciated.
Villnösstal Valley: Energy Self-Sufficiency in South Tyrol
Renewable energy and sustainability
Renewable energy at the Hotel Tyrol is supplied locally. No less than three hydroelectric power plants, two district heating systems in addition to a photovoltaic solar system, all provide Funes/Villnöss with clean energy. This also helps to safeguard the environment as well as feeding back into the regional network, thereby adding value.
The basis of the sustainable energy originated in 1921, with the founding of the Funes Santa Maddalena Electric Company. In the decades that followed, the energy network was gradually expanded. Nowadays, the district of Funes is considered a pioneer in the supply of sustainable energy.
