Owner description: In the heart of the Dolomites, the private park "Corte delle Dolomiti" is home to the "Corte spa", a relaxing and well-being area managed by the staff of Hotel Antelao in Borca di Cadore, an opportunity to get back into shape during your stay in the mountains. The "Corte Spa" offers all types of water therapy in environments overlooking that beautiful scenery of the Dolomites, which can be enjoyed through the large windows, and is located a few kilometers from beautiful Cortina d'Ampezzo. To the natural well-being characteristic of a mountain getaway, the "Corte Spa" also offers a healthy getaway in its modern fitness area - state of the art machines and personal TV screen - as well as relaxing steam-based sessions in the Turkish bath and in the Finnish sauna, with a starry sky and panoramic views. The swimming pool in the wellness center offers peaceful waters at thirty-one degrees and twelve whirlpools, perfect for toning, to which it is possible to integrate other beauty treatments of the relaxation area, such as the hay bath and a relaxing or shiatsu massage. Entrance is free for all guests staying at Hotel Antelao. At the entrance, each guest may book treatments and buy flip flops, goggles, bathing suits, bathing caps as well as essences and aromas of the mountains.

“Wellness in the Italian mountains...”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

I wondered what to expect from an Italian spa... I have to admit I was a bit scared as I am used to the northern style. How is to go around in swimming trunks and with a bathing cap? Will I find the same silence, relaxation and concentration as I am used to in Germany? And the same feeling of "wellness''?

I was happily surprised for a number of things. Beautiful building! Magnificent view! Kind staff makes you feel welcome and brings around water, tea and other drinks. And the best thing maybe: the mountain air refreshing you after the sauna, on a calm and wonderful balcony outside (I visited the spa with some snow around).

But a number of other things made me feel less at ease. The swimming pool is shared with numerous families and young children... of course because it is a beautiful small pool! But it brings with it a great 'movimento' and gives the feeling of compromise. Some boys behaved as if they were visiting an 'Aquafun', running around and playing... staff did their best but how can you bridge such a difference in culture and expectations? The various (nice) rest places are very exposed, in the heart of the centre. I found the small sauna cabin itself a bit too hot... I missed a thermometer but it was probably overheated. Just one hour-glass for many people? Enough hooks?

In short: a nice experience but it can be better, the potential is not fully used yet. Suggestion: please extend it a bit! Your spa would win a lot with one extra (and real) rest room, a second intermediate sauna... and a few more showers. Reading the reviews, many guests are happy and discover something new... It is something to introduce an infrastructure, but still another thing to introduce the real wellness style... Grazie and good luck!

“Aufguss”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

I went to that spa place with my fiancee, as it was included in the pack of the hotel. It has two areas, one small area with sauna, hydro-massage, fresh fruit and tea, and the like and another bigger area with solarium and swimming pool with jacuzzi.

The sauna is small though we were offered a free aufguss treatment which we enjoyed quite a lot, though it was the first time for us.

I would recommend it if you are in the area, not as a spa you would want to go exclusively.

“Relaxing after some hard walking”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Picked up a leaflet at our hotel and decided this would be just the place to visit for an afternoon of rest and relaxation, soothing the sore legs. Great views, really clean and modern. The sun deck has no shade but a quick relocation indoors saved me from frying.
Point to note - there was no indication from the receptionist that a swim hat is mandatory for all the water acitivities. I got told to get out of the pool because i didnt have a hat on. They are available for purchase at €3 each.
Niceway to spend an afternoon.
