Dolomites, Italy

FORESTIS takes the vision of serenity to new heights at an altitude of 1,800 m. Located in Italy’s South Tyrol, Dolomites, the architecture and design within nature do all the work, leaving guests feeling at peace and relaxed. Ideal for anyone looking for a postcard-perfect escape, this sleek and minimal hotel has been designed to blend the elements of nature all into one place. 


Focusing on four key elements of pure spring water, fresh mountain air, exposure to sunshine, and a mild climate, the well-being offered at FORESTIS invites guests to reconnect with their body and soul within nature.

The story

It all began with Stefan Hinteregger and Teresa Unterthiner wanting to create a remarkably rooted destination in the region. Stefan’s hotelier father discovered the historical building 22 years ago and envisioned the location’s potential. Teresa and Stefan took the vision and transformed their shared passion into a reality with local architects and artisans to bring the 100-year-old structure back to life, adding three towers of suites and the vast glass-and-stone spa, all overlooking the Dolomite peaks.  

Your stay

With cinematic views of the breathtaking Dolomites, the tower suites have floor-to-ceiling sliding windows, light wood, and spacious balconies, merging guests into nature. With unobstructed views of the mystical mountains, The Penthouse at FORESTIS is surrounded by dense treetops overlooking wooded mountain landscape or the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site.

How to spend your time

After spending the morning at the Spa, regenerating with an elemental program involving tree therapy, a wood oil massage and a forest salt bath, guests can explore the great outdoors with activities such as ski-in, ski-out, snowshoeing, hiking, and biking. Energy exercises of Wyda Yoga, a practice from the Celtic druids, are among the activities in nature, bringing the body and mind into harmony. 

Fall in love with

The tranquility of the spa, serenity of hikes to the high-Alpine trails, and a Forest Cuisine exclusively using locally sourced ingredients which have been foraged from the surrounding land and farms,  all while overlooking vast windows that put nature center stage. Guests can enjoy evening cocktails at sunset at what is claimed to be the one of the highest rooftop outdoor lounges in the world.

Expect the unexpected

With spacious balconies in all three suite towers, each room has comfortable outdoor lounge furniture for those who would like to spend the night sleeping under the stars, immersing every guest in the restorative powers of nature.

The best time to visit
