Como Hotels Announces New Destination

COMO Hotels & Resorts is delighted to announce the opening of its latest luxury destination, COMO Alpina Dolomites, which will open its doors on 7th December 2023. This luxury year-round resort, located in Northern Italy’s South Tyrol, promises an unparalleled alpine experience.

Situated amidst the majestic Dolomites, a UNESCO Natural World Heritage site, the resort is located in Val Gardena on the Alpe di Siusi, one of Europe's largest high-altitude plateaus.  Nestled within a landscape characterised by towering peaks, sprawling valleys and alpine meadows, the resort features 60 thoughtfully designed rooms. With its prime location, guests can enjoy sweeping views of some of the most famous peaks in the Dolomite Mountain range

On the adventure front, pristine pistes beckon, with Val Gardena being a jewel in the Dolomiti Superski circuit. Whether one is an off-piste expert or a novice finding their footing on the slopes, the ski-in/ski-out resort offers the guidance of expert instructors to ensure an exhilarating skiing experience. For those looking to venture beyond the slopes, the area also provides a plethora of year-round activities. From hiking and mountain biking in warmer seasons to snowboarding and cross-country skiing in winter, there's something for every outdoor enthusiast.

The resort champions the freshest local and regional products, curating a menu that fuels alpine adventures. Guests can choose from a variety of dining options, including the bright and casual Alpina Chalet in the fresh mountain air, the intimate Sassolungo which is dedicated to the art of healthful dining by COMO Shambhala Cuisine. The relaxing Lobby Lounge is the perfect setting for drinks and small bites as well as a complimentary afternoon tea served each afternoon.

Holistic wellness is one the core pillars of the COMO’s properties and COMO Alpina Dolomites is no exception. COMO Shambhala Retreat offers an expansive wellness programme that includes a 22m indoor pool, a 7m panoramic outdoor pool, sauna, relaxation zones, a fitness centre, and a beauty sanctuary. At COMO Shambhala, the focus remains on revitalisation and rejuvenation, ensuring that guests return from their stay feeling both refreshed and renewed.

When it comes to design, natural materials have been thoughtfully chosen for the building, and the resort seamlessly integrates with its surroundings. With the facade built using original quartzite natural stone and a roof embraced by a wooden structure, the design emulates the natural movements of the terrain and mountains.
