Arrival experience

Upon arrival, the driver helped me into the main lobby with my bags, where a member of staff escorted me to the reception desk. The lobby area is where the main reception and concierge desks are located, and from here you could access all the restaurants, the piano bar and comfy seating area, buffered by a tempting table with jars of sweeties. It has a very alpine feel: traditional, warm and welcoming. I was greeted warmly and shown to my Junior Suite and where I was explained the room’s functions and facilities.

Rooms and suites

My room was a very spacious junior suite with a large balcony overlooking the mountains. There was hanging space for all my ski paraphernalia and kit. The décor was contemporary with glass, snowball chandelier lights, and furnishings all in fawn, white and chocolate brown colours. There was a big separate seating banquette which could be converted to a child’s bed. The L-shaped suite had a desk and chair under the window, a large comfy armchair next to it, and a kettle with tea and coffee making facilities (you choose your own tea downstairs to enjoy in your suite with honey). The real fireplace had a felt basket of wood beside it, but the room was warm enough so I left it alone. The bed was extremely comfortable, with nice quality linen, one hard pillow and one soft and, being Tyrol, two fluffy duvets instead of sheets.

The bathroom

The large, simple bathroom was to the left of the entrance door with twin vanities, a huge bath and a walk-in shower. All the amenities were generous and eco-friendly, with the nicest shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and shower gels, plus toothbrush and shaving kits. Good hairdryer, bathrobes and towels.

Dining

There are many choices, including Restaurant Limonaia, perfect for family dining and where a bountiful buffet breakfast is served in the mornings. The Fondue Stube restaurant serves meat, cheese dishes and, of course, the ubiquitous chocolate fondue. The Restaurant Wine Bar & Grill offers pizza and pasta dishes. Finally, there’s the cherry on the dining cake, St. Hubertus, the superb Michelin starred experience by chef Norbert Niederkofler. I can honestly say I have never had food quite like it; utterly delicious, a fusion of the most divine flavours and superb signature dishes. Everything I had, including the pumpkin risotto, bone marrow and kefir, not to mention the beetroot gnocchi, was out of this world.

I ate in almost every restaurant during my stay and the food was very good, including the delicious breakfast buffet and its large table of snacks to take skiing as you headed off for the day.

Spa and wellness

The spa offers facials, eye treatments, mani/pedis, and many wonderful body treatments, including locally inspired wraps and massages. The Dolomites are full of lovely herbs and flowers which the spa here incorporates into their products. Book in advance; it’s very popular.

More +
Pool and beach

The adult pool is a good size, but the children’s area and pool is good for swimming laps, that’s if you don’t mind a few squeals of delight as the kids all splash around. This, however, is one area that could do with a little upgrading.

More +
Kids/teens facilities

Children and teens are welcomed with open arms. If you have teenagers who want to go out clubbing, they will be disappointed as there’s no such facility here, but there is plenty for them to do in-house, including a snooker room, library and cinema. There is a wonderful kid’s room and club for the little ones and a huge pool and hot tub for them to enjoy.

Staff and service

The staff at the Rosa Alpina are polite, welcoming, attentive, utterly charming and friendly. They are equally engaging with children. A hotel driver took us to a local restaurant one evening and walked us in to make sure all was ok before leaving. The concierge could not have been more helpful and was in contact with me well before I arrived.

Guest profile

This was not high season, and yet there was a mix of English, Germans, Italians, Brazilians, Americans, and Russians. All the guests were very smart, chic, and there were a mixture of couples and families with young children.

Departure experience

I left early in the morning; my bags were collected and I settled the bill, by which time the car was already waiting for me.
