A place of relaxation in the heart of the Dolomites. Lefay Resort & Spa Dolomiti is a modern and at the same time cozy wellness resort that combines luxury, relaxation and culinary. In this post you can read my full hotel review of the Lefay Resort & Spa Dolomiti.

My Review of the Lefay Resort & Spa Dolomiti

Location & Accessibility

Lefay Resort & Spa Dolomiti is located above the small village of Pinzolo, surrounded by green mountains and forests in Trentino. By car it is only an hour away from Lake Garda or 4.5 hours from Munich. A visit to the resort can therefore be wonderfully combined with a road trip through Northern Italy and is an ideal stop to relax and unwind in between hikes and sightseeing. In winter, the region is also a paradise for skiers, making Lefay a great destination all year round.

The concept of the Lefay Resort & Spa Dolomiti

Currently there are two Lefay resorts in Italy, one in the Dolomites and another on Lake Garda. Both resorts are luxurious wellness oases.
When you arrive at the resort and enter for the first time, you will notice the wonderful combination of modernity with the coziness of a chalet: a dark & elegant design, many wooden elements, warm colors and fireplaces.

Luxury is redefined at Lefay, because here it means sustainability, tranquility, getting back to nature and having time for yourself. Therefore, wellness is omnipresent at Lefay and the 5000m² spa area is very diverse. Indulgence and culinary delights also play a major role in the concept – but more on that later.

The Suites at Lefay Resort & Spa Dolomiti

Even the smallest room category at Lefay Resort & Spa is the Junior Suite, just under 60m² in size. It is equipped with many natural materials, a high-quality interior design and many windows as well as a balcony, from which the beauty of the Dolomites can be enjoyed.

Our Royal Pool & Spa Suite

We slept in a Royal Pool & Spa Suite. And as the name already implies, this room category is ultra luxurious and very generously designed with 315m². The centerpiece of the suite is the private spa area with sauna, indoor whirlpool and treatment beds. It is fully glazed, and looks out onto the private terrace with views over the valley and mountains in the background. At the same time, however, it is protected from outside glances.

The living room invites you to relax and linger, has a dining table, its own bar and even a fully equipped kitchen. Through a sliding door the spacious outdoor area opens up with sun loungers and a heated jacuzzi, from which the view can be enjoyed wonderfully. In addition to the terrace, the living room has a balcony overlooking the pool and the main building.

Super cozy is the bedroom with an electronic fireplace, which can also be found in the living room. The bedding in the Lefay is incredibly soft and the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The bathroom is also eye catching with black marble. A great highlight in the double shower is the integrated window overlooking the forest (this can of course be covered if desired.) In addition, the bathroom is equipped with in-house luxurious skin care – and shower products.


The 5000m² wellness area is the heart of the Lefay Resort & Spa in the Dolomites. Both indoors and outdoors you can relax perfectly here. The large outdoor pool is heated and thus invites you to swim even in winter. In summer you can sunbathe in cabanas and enjoy the view.

Inside, the spa area is divided into different floors and offers various wellness options. Be it fitness in the super-equipped gym or relaxation in the salt grotto, where there is even a pool in which you can “float” like in the Dead Sea. There are also several indoor pools and whirlpools.

The Lefay Spa Method combines traditional Chinese knowledge with Western techniques to offer a special and wide range of spa treatments. I myself tried a Relaxing Energy Point massage, which was recommended to me by the spa team. It is a mix of a classical massage with the activation of various points on the body, which provide for an ideal energy flow and relaxation. In fact, it was a unique experience, which made me feel very calm.

I also booked a Couple Ritual together with my husband. We have chosen “The Chalet”. The ritual takes place in a special treatment room, which looks like a rustic mountain hut. Here we first had a bath, followed by an oil massage and let the whole experience end with relaxation with a drink by the fireplace.

Wellness is the soul of Lefay, which is clearly felt by guests. The selection is so varied that you can try a new wellness method every day without anything being repetitive. The incorporation of natural elements, as well as the view of the mountains, ensure a connection with nature.

Breakfast & Restaurant


In the main restaurant Dolomia, both lunch and dinner are served as an à la carte menu, as well as breakfast as a buffet. In addition to the breakfast classics, the buffet also includes sparkling wine and a juicer with which fresh juice can be prepared as desired. You can also order simple egg dishes like fried eggs, but I would have loved a separate menu with Eggs Benedict, waffles & Co.

For lunch, there are various snacks as well as delicious salads and sandwiches. But my favorite part of Dolomia is dinner: the menu includes several courses influenced by authentic Italian cuisine from the region, using primarily local ingredients. In addition, there are changing daily specials and a “spa menu” with healthy choices.

An eye-catcher in the restaurant is the open kitchen as well as the impressive wine collection in a glass room, which stands in the center of the restaurant. Here are primarily great wines from the region, but also noble drops with international origin.


For a special occasion, Grual is the right choice. The fine dining restaurant is named after the mountain behind Lefay Resort & Spa Dolomiti and the menu is inspired by the forest and the mountains. This means that all dishes and ingredients used are of local origin, organically grown and found in the region. Including meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. We enjoyed a great eight-course meal here and accommodating special requests were no problem. However, you should plan plenty of time for this dinner experience – but the matching wine accompaniment to the menu shortens the waiting time 😉

Lounge Bar

Probably the most beautiful restaurant area is the lounge bar on the highest floor of the main building. It is elegantly furnished with comfortable leather sofas, a fireplace, a library, and a well-stocked bar. The surrounding glass facade opens up a great panoramic view into the valley. It is the perfect place for an aperitif in the evening and thanks to the terrace also for lunch. At lunchtime, dishes from the main Dolomia restaurant can be ordered here.

There is also a separate cigar room in the lounge bar with special finds to smoke. However, we ourselves do not smoke and therefore only admired it from the outside.

Résumé of my Review of the Lefay Resort & Spa Dolomiti

Our three days at Lefay Resort & Spa Dolomiti flew by as we enjoyed every moment. We didn’t even leave the resort during this time to make sure we could enjoy our amazing suite, spa services and the dining possibilities to the fullest. It was definitely not our last visit to Lefay! We loved the concept and definitely want to try the resort again in the winter when the gorgeous landscape is covered in snow.
