What an enchanting property; the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the staff gracious and incredibly accommodating, the restaurants good to excellent. If I have one complaint it's that the wifi was impossibly weak.

Five star hotel located in the perfect ski town of San Cassiano in the dolomites. The hotel lived up to expectations providing five star services and food to match at all times. If you want a perfectly relaxing hotel for a break then the Rosa Alpina is ideal. The only down side is the cost; this is certainly not an inexpensive option but that needs to be weighed up against the quality of the hotel.

We went with our kids (11) and we loved it! There was so much to do. They had a trampoline, swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, massage area, kids room, and so much more. I would recommend staying there for one day and it was expensive but good. The rooms were excellent and very pretty and the village was wonderful. Altogether a great stay.

Lovely hotel. Spacious room with nice view. Large bathroom and plenty of storage. Great cable tv with good variety of stations. Loved the van that drove us to the gondola-the van drivers were so nice. Breakfast was wonderful with a nice variety of food. We ate in the grill several times and really loved it. The food was delicious and the service was amazing.
Only negative things I can think of was the odd shower door that has hard to maneuver and the tv remote did not work.

I have stayed at the Rosa Alpina for two nights in February. The welcome at the hotel was excellent and the front staff very kind and helpful. Huog the owner is the perfect host, always available from morning to evening and always helpful with lots of suggestions for activities and best bars and restaurants. The two restaurants of Rosa Alpina are both an experience. The exceutive chef Norbert is a character that need to be known and very talented. His philosophy of local food is a culture for everybody.
If you really want a unique experience in the Dolomites mountains choose this hotel and this little village surrounded by beautiful mountains and sky facilities. Ask for suite "Nido dell'Aquila!, located on the top of the Hotel with 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms, take your family and enjoy. Mine was a romantic stay and I think was an excellent choice. Hope to come back soon

The skiing:


Great holiday. The town and the ski resort are breathtakingly beautiful. This was my first ski trip, and being a complete novice I didn't really know what to expect. I took private lessons at the Alta Badia ski school with David (if you are thinking of learning to snowboard or ski, I can't imagine a better teacher. His explanations were so easy to understand, he was patient and fun). The Alta Badia ski resort is very well organised, with many routes and paths to choose from, from beginners to advanced (great place for beginners!). There are great restaurants and cafes spread across the resort so you can easily spend the whole day there with espresso/pasta intervals. Great fun to just sit and relax and look at all the people. Great atmosphere. The Dolomites look unreal, like you are inside a postcard.


The hotel:


The hotel has great leisure facilities - quite a large pool where you can properly swim, jacuzzi, dry and wet saunas and cold water plunge pool. After skiing I would go and spend a couple hours there. The gym is OK. The spa offers the most expensive treatments I have ever came across (125 Euros for a 50 minute swedish massage). In case you're wondering - I had that massage and it was OK.. not bad but not the best either.

The restaurant (the more casual one) was really good. delicious pizza, great food, great decor, great staff. Can dress casually or smart-casually.

The 2 Michelin star restaurant 'St. Hubertus' is definitely worth an evening. The food was incredible. The most amazing pork belly I ever had. I had vegetables sourced locally which I've never tasted before. The waiters are very friendly. It is extremely formal.

The hotel keeps a simple decor, themed with a lot of wood and cozy atmosphere. My room had a bath tub which is always a big +, and a large walk-in wardrobe.
Breakfast is very nice, with either buffet or a-la-carte, served in a large airy room with views of the mountains.
The only minus with the hotel were the beds.. my husband and I thought they were hard and uncomfortable.. also they are double. We put some extra duvets at the bottom but it was still quite hard.. It is quite a big minus but other than that the hotel was fantastic.

There aren't a lot of things to do around town. No pubs and clubs and things like that.. it's a pretty, quiet town and you just ski and relax. If you're looking for a buzzy place with lots to do and places to socialise, this probably isn't the best choice for you.



Tips:


- If you are skiing I would recommend that you bring (if you can) a foam roller to help with stretching and muscle pain (the hotel doesn't have one)
- Buy your clothes in advance to save some cash. I came without ski trousers because I thought I could rent them, but they didn't have my size (only a couple of L and XL) so had to buy a pair here. They have loads of places to buy equipment and clothes so you can buy it here, it's just obviously more expensive.
- Ask in advance for a room with mountain view. I had a room facing towards the town which wasn't bad but it's less private and the mountain views are amazing.
- Take sleeping pills:
- I found the bed to be too hard so I asked housekeeping to place 1-2 duvets underneath the sheets to make it softer.
- Go to dinner at a restaurant called 'Stube' in the nearby town - you need to take a taxi there and back (15 Euros each way), but it's a nice change from eating at the hotel each night. Very warm and chalet-style restaurant, heavily decorated with homely features, a kind of restaurant I expected to find at a ski resort. Amazing barbecued meat - I shared the T-bone steak with my husband with a glass of the house red, just amazing.
- If you are driving there, make sure to have snow tires fitted on your car. If renting a car, make sure to ask for it from the car rental company.

Room Tip: Ask in advance for a mountain view room

I treated myself to a three-night ski getaway, while in Italy for a business trip, and picked this stunning 5-star hotel in the Dolomites. The property exudes luxury in every corner but it's an understated luxury, a welcoming luxury made of little details.Staff is unbeatable, they really look after every single guest in order to make your stay memorable. Great restaurants, a two Michelin star one, small and cozy (book in advance because it's not easy finding a table) and a casual easy going Wine Bar and Grill with typical Italian dishes and great pizzas.
There's also an excellent spa, I managed to go once and had a fabulous body treatment after a day of skiing, remember to book it in advance because in the afternoon might be a bit busy
The hotel is located in the center of the little town and has a courtesy shuttle van that constantly goes back and forth between the property and the slopes.
I enjoyed my stay a lot, loved the ambiance in the hotel and skied on the most beautiful slopes ever, next time is going to be a week!!!

Room Tip: ask for a room with the view over the wood, they are quiet and bright and the pine-tree forest is si...
