THE LUXURY OF THE VALGARDENA
The Tyrol Hotel is a family luxury, pearl of the Dolomites renowned for its 12,000 m² of Wellness Area and for the gourmet cuisine of chef Alessandro Martellini.

A harmoniously angular landscape full of differences in height that run from the province of Belluno to Pordenone, passing through the territories of Bolzano, Trento and Udine.
A unique landscape with extraordinary charm that of the Dolomites, a mountain group that UNESCO, on June 26, 2009, proclaimed as a World Heritage worthy of enhancement and protection and which, extending along those wonderful Pale Mountains, represents a unique wealth in the world.
In this square, splendid and picturesque mountain villages such as Selva di Valgardena stand out in Italy and abroad as virtuous examples of welcome and hospitality where environmental protection and tourist enhancement coexist in perfect harmony. Easy to reach, Val Gardena boasts 175 km of slopes and seventy-nine ski lifts, thus becoming one of the most beautiful and avant-garde areas in the world, while carefully preserving splendid habitats and natural parks.
In this context, hospitality represents an important flagship of which the Tyrol Hotel, a heavenly hotel in Selva di Val Gardena, is an absolute example.
Born in 1966 from the love for the welcome of the Malloyer couple, the Tyrol Hotel is the perfect model of family hospitality devoted to luxury that, after more than fifty years, continues to renew itself, while maintaining charm and ancient splendor.
Today, under the direction of Bibiana Dirler and her husband Maurizio Micheli, the Tyrol Hotel continues to welcome its guests through a complete offer in which the classic Tyrolean atmospheres and the typical elements of Ladin culture are enriched with modern details capable of do not alter its profound suggestion.
The undisputed protagonist is the wood that, from the hall to the fifty rooms and suites, furnishes the interiors with value and warmth. The rooms are spacious and bright and welcome the guest in an atmosphere of pure elegance and relaxation in which traditional and modern elements intertwine in total harmony, going up to the large windows or private terraces that, overlooking the natural panoramas of Val Gardena, allow you to see with wonder the Saslong, Sella and Puez-Odle Group.
The privileged location of the Tyrol Hotel makes it a perfect destination for nature and sports enthusiasts. In fact, it takes just 20 seconds to get out of the hotel sky-room and find yourself in the famous Sellaronda ski circuit, as well as to take pleasant walks and excursions along the suggestive nearby paths.
For lovers of pleasure and relaxation, there are over 12,000 square meters of Beauty, Wellness & Spa area available which, through a circuit of swimming pools, saunas, wetlands and treatments, raise the Tyrol Hotel as the maximum experience for Val Gardena and, probably, among the best in Italy.
And if we want to talk about wellness, it is worth mentioning the restaurant offer that, at the Tyrol Hotel, acquires very high value thanks to the cuisine of Chef Alessandro Martellini, a thoroughbred Maremma and great interpreter of the Tuscan-South Tyrolean taste and philosophy so dear to Tyrol. Martellini, following important restaurant experiences (among which the one next to the steak chef Antonio Guida at the time of the Pelican stands out), directs the hotel kitchens, defining and outlining the proposal. The experience at Suinsom is magical, the gourmet restaurant located in a characteristic stube where the Chef offers fine-dining dishes devoted to research and innovation. A few examples
? The Cipolla salted, cooked and served with fondue of pecorino of Toscana and sweet marjoram: the greatest exaltation of a poor element, elevated to kingly magnificence; or the Gnocco stuffed with Graukäse – celebration of the territory and dish full of grit, capable to recall that thorny harmony, typical of the wonderful Dolomites.
