Kronplatz – South Tyrol
Those in the know will tell you Kronplatz offers some of the best skiing in the Dolomites. And for those serious about their skiing, being based just 150 metres from the lifts, the gateway to over 120 kms of slopes, is the perfect setting. The rooms and suites at Hotel Kronplatz are in 4 separate pavilions all leading off the main reception area giving the hotel a deceptively intimate feel. And even the public areas are divided into a myriad of cosy hideaways with their own fireplaces.
After a day out in the mountains be it skiing in the winter or mountain walks in the summer, pre-prandial drinks followed by dinner is order of the day. The menus are unique, and the dishes are inspired by 7 peaks from around the world at any one time, so mains maybe influenced by the spices from Indonesia, or the flavours from Kilimanjaro or the High Andes. All are complimented by the cheeses and wines produced locally in South Tyrol.
When not relaxing fireside, the spa offers Mountain elements and then perhaps after, a swim in one of the heated pools where steam rises when warm waters meets the chill outdoor air. And there are not many hotels where you feel the need to spend time together cozied up on an oversized daybed, in your luxurious bedroom, taking in the views of the surrounding snowcapped mountains or just watching a movie together along with a glass of wine.
Hotel Kronplatz is very much a hotel for couples looking for something intimate, with exciting dining and just a stone’s throw from local dining options. And for the brave there’s even an indoor climbing wall just for adults.
