Hotel Review: The Forestis Dolomites
The Forestis Dolomites is idyllically settled over a valley in the heart of the Dolomites overlooking the lush green forests and of course the majestic mountain shapes right behind it. The best way to reach it is by car – we stayed in this hotel to enjoy a relaxing break during a road trip through Tyrol in the summertime. The Forestis has the perfect location to immerse into this spectacular nature and completely switch off for a while.
The hotel is just some minutes away from a charming little town called Brixen which is the oldest one in Tyrol.
The hotel complex consists of different buildings which are all connected. The smallest one is a traditional mountain hut with regular rooms and suites. This building has already been a little hotel prior the construction of the three spectacular towers. In these brand new complexes are the Tower Suites situated and – at the top of two of the towers – even a two-storied Penthouse.
All rooms & suites offer an amazing view in the direction of the mountains but naturally the higher Towers Suites and the two Penthouses have a greater vista over the scenery.
The Penthouse of the Forestis Dolomites
This is one of the most spectacular rooms we ever stayed at! The two penthouses of the Forestis are designed with natural elements, a minimalist style while offering a maximum of luxury, privacy and tranquility at the same time.
You enter the Penthouse right in the living room with a fireplace, an open kitchen and the big balcony. Behind it is the walk in closet and the bathroom with natural signature Forestis bath amenities. The bedroom is connected to the balcony as well and has a huge glass front which offers the most spectacular view of the Dolomites right from your bed! But no worries – thick curtains can turn your bedroom into complete darkness to sleep.
A wooden door leads upstairs to your private sauna with Dolomites view and of course to your very own rooftop sundeck with a huge heated pool. It’s without any doubt the best place to enjoy the spectacular mountain vista – especially during sunrise!
The Forestis Spa & Pool
All areas of this unique hotel connect the four natural elements and the Spa & Pool area is a perfect example for it. Again the design is modern with many wooden elements. The area is open for all guests and beside the treatment rooms you’ll find saunas, quiet areas, a snack & tea bar and the big heated stone pool. It is indoors and outdoors as well so you can use it in all weathers!
During the warmer months you can enjoy the view from one of the sun beds and soak in the crisp mountain air and warming sun.
Sport lovers will enjoy the fitness rooms and yoga sessions with the most spectacular view!
Breakfast & Restaurant
The “Forestis Cuisine” is a place like no other. Never in my life have I seen a restaurant which is as perfectly designed as this step shaped restaurant. It has floor-to-ceiling windows which can be completely opened to enjoy your breakfast outside.
The cuisine of the Forestis Dolomites is inspired by nature and connects South Tyrolean traditions with modern ideas while using natural ingredients of local farmers. Every dish is not only a piece of art for the eyes but also a tasteful experience which will leave you speechless. The menu changes daily depending on the seasonal ingredients.
There’s no better way to start the day than with the fresh breakfast buffet of the Forestis Dolomites. The options are various and again made out of local products like fresh veggies, milk products, sausages and so much more. My favorite part of the buffet has been the juicing room to create your own juice out of fresh veggies and fruit. Additionally you can order hot dishes from the à la carte menu at your table.
No matter if during the day to enjoy a teatime on the sunny terrace or for a fancy cocktail in the evening. The Bar & Lounge of the Forestis is the ideal place to enjoy the hospitality of South Tyrol while being surrounded by nature.
As travel bloggers we’ve already stayed at numerous hotels all around the world but non of them have ever been comparable with the Forestis Dolomites. The concept is thought out to perfection just like the design and hospitality. If you’re looking for a quite place to immerse into nature, soak in the tranquility and treat yourself with delicious dining options and natural luxury than the Forestis Dolomites is your perfect choice! Especially Couples or groups of friends will enjoy this adults only hotel in the heart of the Dolomites.
