5-star holiday in South Tyrol: Welcome to Alpenpalace

The appeal of the personal

Time is priceless. Luxury an attitude to life which is reflected in every courteous gesture and in every fulfilled desire. We see it as an objective and a passion at the same time to turn your 5-star holiday in South Tyrol into a celebration – and into a new meeting with the magnificence of being, and that feeling of joie de vivre which actually touches your heart.

We, the Mairhofer Family, as your host, are able to look back upon a long tradition of hospitality and of welcoming people. Indulgence is an unmitigated passion for us today, more than ever. We pay particular attention to our skilful cuisine, which, as well as an excellent range of wines, means that real gourmets are devotees of our hotel.

The exemplary wellness competence in the “The Art of Beauty by La Prairie” spa meets with our aspirations – and is a harmonious way to round off the range on offer in our deluxe hotel & spa resort.

South Tyrolean hospitality & Italian elegance

We believe that the loveliest path to happiness during a holiday lies in the intermingling of alpine lifestyle and Italian noblesse. As South Tyroleans, we feel a connection to our region; we live in and love the region and its special features and are delighted to be able to share these with you.

Together with an excellently trained team of 70 staff and personalities from the Ahrntal Valley we create an all-round experience which remains authentic, yet nonetheless provides international style. We bring together influences from the Italian way of life with discretion and a wholly private realm.

In 2007 we completely devoted ourselves to creating a hotel which, in its details, serves to radiate the exceptional and makes your 5-star holiday in South Tyrol distinctive. We look forward to providing you with a very high level of indulgence.

A sustainable 5-star holiday in South Tyrol

In harmony with nature

Having grown up in one of the loveliest alpine regions with all its protected stomping grounds and close to one of the most impressive landscapes in the world, the UNESCO-protected Dolomites, it is a matter of course for us that we preserve what is special and protect what is precious.

This is why we place a great deal of value in our 5-star hotel in the Ahrntal Valley on being mindful of how we use all our resources. In our cooking we prefer to use produce which is from the region and which is organically produced; the facilities in our hotel have, for the most part, been created by local companies and carpenters and when it comes to building technology, we use computer-controlled systems in individual rooms, heat recovery in all the refrigeration systems to provide hot water and much more.

Even the mini-bar in the room is only refrigerated if the room is actually occupied. If the room is not occupied, the entire electric circuit there is switched off. LED lights and energy-saving lights are further elements. We get our heat from the district heating system which uses local biomass sources. This saves greenhouse gases and CO2 and strengthens the regional supply chain. Responsible refuse sorting and appropriate recycling by our own dedicated staff ensures that this loop of sustainable hotel management is also consistently closed.
