Rosa Alpina

Rosa Alpina

Dolomites, Italy

Intimate and romantic, the Rosa Alpina sits at the foot of the Lavarella and Conturines mountains in the peaceful village of San Cassiano in Alta Badia. It exudes a quiet glamour, with antique furnishings and nods to the local Ladin culture. The 52 rooms and suites are individually designed, but all share an authentic Alpine style, complemented by the warm hospitality you receive from the family who run the hotel. There’s also a three-bedroom chalet and three-bedroom penthouse for further space and privacy.

During your stay, when not out hiking in the mountains that surround you, the hotel’s spa might beckon with its range of relaxing treatments and Finnish sauna. There’s also an indoor pool, a fitness room, and four restaurants, including the three-Michelin-starred St. Hubertus.
