Granvara Relais & Spa Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 17, 2012

If you want to get away from noise, stress, traffic and pollution, and you desire to dive into alpine nature while still staying in a luxury environment with all the possible comforts and pampering, then you must experience the Granvara Hotel & SPA! We wanted to spend a week in July in the Dolomites and we decided to stay at the Granvara as not only it was very well referenced here in trip advisor but also a good friend of us warmly suggested it, so we were expecting already a certain standard and beautiful hotel, also considering that in the Dolomites the quality/price ratio for accommodation is generally very good!...but our already high expectations were well exceeded by the elegant perfection of this place! We are used to travel for business in 4* hotels in different countries so we know by experience what the weak points of hotels can be but in the Granvara we could not find a single negative point! Their website reflects exactly the reality (if not slightly under-representing it), starting from the location, overlooking the val Gardena and the village of Selva and surrounded by the peaks of the Sassolungo mountain and the Sella group, to the gardens and hotel building, kept in perfect condition to the minutest detail. We have not visited the different types of rooms available but we can say that the junior suite is fantastic, the furniture, the floor carpet and the bathroom are new and sparkling clean, the room and the balcony are a very good size and the view is stunning! The restaurant, the bar and all the premises are extremely well kept and decorated in a very elegant way. What we really liked is that the hotel has a typical south tyrol character (nice wood and warm atmosphere) but interpreted in a very classy way. The personnel from the cleaning ladies to the restaurant staff to the receptionist and managers were very professional and helpful, always smiling and make you feel at ease (something you often miss in luxury hotels), ike you were at home. The food is, as mentioned on the website, a real gourmet, the breakfast food had excellent freshness and quality, the 5 course dinner was comparable to 1* michelin and the quantity is more than enough to fill you up even after 5 h walk in the mountain! The swimming pools (indoor and outdoor connected together) are not small as usually found in hotels, and you find many types of saunas, all new and elegantly decorated! Unfortunately we could not try the outdoor pool because of the weather, but swimming in the indoor one was excellent!
The only regret was that we did not have enough time to fully enjoy the spa area before dinner as we were arriving too late after a day out in the beautiful mountains. We definitely highly recommend this place to everyone who wishes a relaxing, luxury stay while still having plenty of opportunities to do outdoor activities.

The Granvara is a hotel we have visited several times over the past 12 years and each visit has seen significant improvements on what was already a very high standard. This is an excellent hotel for relaxation and good food in a spectacular setting. Everyone is friendly and want to help make your stay as good as possible which makes you want to return time and again.

Well worth a visit.

We stayed at the Granvara at the end of March 2012 for a ski holiday with some girlfriends. the trip was amazing in itself however the hotel more than exceeded our expectations. The food was outstanding, the hotel was incredibly clean and well organized. The people were not only warm and friendly, they made every activity seamless from parking your skiis, to getting to and from the hill. The spa area is also a special treat and the large indoor outdoor pool was understated in the advertising. I don't recall anything negative about this resort and would definitely return.

I fully agree with all the positive previous reviews. Superb rooms, fantastic well heated indoor /outdoor pool (swim outside surrounded by snow !) , excellent facilities.
The food in the Restaurant is of the highest quality, with well chosen and interesting options for every course. The wine list is extensive and the quality / price ratio is good. Service is the perfect balance of attentiveness, efficiency and friendliness.
The location is not ideal if you are the type to hit the bars and night life in the evenings but otherwise is perfect. We had a car, but it was not essential as the shuttle service to the ski slopes is very convenient.
We are already planning a return as soon as possible.

This small hotel is situated not in the centre of Selva, but it's very quite and beatiful place. We stayed there for 1 week skiing vacation with a child, and we are enjoyed of the staying. Staff is friendly, our room has a wonderful view. Dinners are tasty. Unfortunantly, there is no kids club in the hotel and no wi-fi in the rooms. You can find-wi in the bar zone. The stuff could bring you in any slopes, it's very convenient.

Room Tip: We have a suite from 2 rooms at 3rd floor- great view.

This is a lovely hotel in a beautiful location, just outside Selva. There is a pleasant woodland walk into town, which avoids the main road. Our bedroom was lovely, spotless and had stunning views over the surrounding area. Breakfast and dinner were excellent. I'm not usually a fan of hotel swimming pools but this one was fantastic! Would definitely stay here again if I was in this area.

We already knew how beautiful the Dolomites were - finding a hotel that matched their beauty was a real bonus! The other reviews have already said it all about the food, the location, the service and the facilities but it is difficult to get across in a review how the Granvara manages to create an atmosphere of initimacy and homeliness within such luxurious surroundings. We stayed for 10 days and had two sets of friends come to share it with us at the beginning and the end. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful when two other friends staying elsewhere in Selva wanted to join us for dinner. The ski taxi service was perfect - always punctual and took us to whichever lift we wanted to begin from. Our room was extremely clean, well maintained and spacious with a balcony. All the team at Granvara were friendly, helpful and professional. We too will be booking again for next year.

Room Tip: The junior suites on the second floor at the front have an amazing view

Exclusive Spa Hotel Granvara in the Dolomites... Room to free your soul, for wellbeing and imagination. Room for the simple things in life and the highest standards of individuality. Welcome to the Granvara on this sunny Val Gardena plateau! Our inviting "home from home" comfort reflects the elegance and exclusivity of the Granvara Spa & Relais Hotel in Wolkenstein. Four-star s luxury coupled with five-star privacy: at the Granvara wellness hotel you'll enjoy individual attention well away from the world at large. A place of tranquillity and energy in a 15,000 metre square private garden and park with a unique 360º view of the South Tyrolean Dolomites, a UNESCO world natural heritage site. The Relais & Spa Hotel Granvara didn't get itsname by accident: "Granvara" comes from the Ladin and means "great wide meadow". For as far as the eye can see, the striking Dolomite mountains of Langkofel, Schlern, Seceda, Cuca, Stevia, Chedul, Cir and Sella surround you. The corresponding peace and feeling of security are guaranteed by the hotel's philosophy: the Relais du Silence philosophy. In the wellness and spa complex on Val Gardena's sun terrace, the hotel's own Dolomite spring and the use of natural sources of energy help guests to experience the gentlest rest and recuperation. Our head chef, Michael, and his team invite you on a very special gourmet journey, Italian specialities combined with traditional South Tyrolean fare. The unique position of Val Gardena's 4-star s hotel, surrounded by greenery and yet directly linked to the popular Sella Ronda, means that in winter you are guaranteed to be able to "ski in and ski out" at the Spa Hotel Granvara. ... more   less
