Recently, our Product, Partnerships & Marketing Executive, Max, embarked on a journey to explore the lavish confines of Lefay Resort & SPA Dolomiti. This exquisite hotel and spa, nestled in the heart of Italy, provides an unmatched experience due to its magnificent location – the Dolomites. Whether you’re a winter enthusiast seeking adrenaline on the ski slopes or a summer adventurer looking for diverse activities, this resort, featuring a premium three-floor spa, serves as a perfect getaway.
Join us as we delve into Max’s fascinating journey and explore the extraordinary offerings of Lefay Dolomiti.
An Introduction to Lefay Resort & SPA Dolomiti
Seated gracefully on the mountainous landscape of the Dolomites, Lefay Dolomiti opened its doors in the summer of 2019 and still possesses the allure of novelty. If you’ve experienced the sister property, Lefay Lago di Garda, you’ll find that the essence of pure luxury and tranquil views has been beautifully replicated here.
The resort, being one of Italy’s latest additions, boasts spectacular accommodations. Even the entry-level suites are nothing short of extraordinary. If you’re planning a romantic getaway, consider the Royal Pool & Spa Suite. This haven of relaxation features a private SPA, complete with a bio-sauna, steam sauna, Jacuzzi, and twin treatment loungers. Moreover, the suite includes a private terrace equipped with a heated whirlpool overlooking the picturesque valley.
Max’s advice: Request a valley-facing suite. The enchanting views are simply not to be missed!
Immersive Spa Experience at Lefay Dolomiti
Lefay Dolomiti’s spa represents a paradigm of relaxation and innovation. This 5000 sqm haven is equipped with an indoor-outdoor swimming pool, an indoor sports pool, a magnesium-rich saltwater whirlpool, a heated saltwater lake, an ice pool, a Kneipp path, and an ice waterfall. Furthermore, the spa includes nine saunas with varying temperatures and humidity levels and five distinctive circuits designed to rejuvenate your energetic condition.
For those wishing to remain active during their holiday, Lefay Dolomiti’s fitness offerings are expansive. A weekly schedule features diverse group classes, ranging from mobility and fitball to Qi Gong, and even a special ‘pre-ski’ session for skiing enthusiasts. If personal training is your preference, their gym, boasting panoramic mountain views, can cater to this need.
Max’s Advice: Complement your gym workout with the ‘Scambio nel Vento’ body massage. You’ll replace your aches with an aura of tranquillity.
Engaging Activities at Lefay Dolomiti
Summer in the mountains is a hidden gem. Although renowned as a winter destination, Max discovered the beauty of Lefay Dolomiti in June, developing an admiration for the verdant slopes. The Dolomites offers breathtaking scenery for hiking, mountain biking, and climbing. The resort’s proximity to ski lifts and availability of expert tourist guides make it an ideal choice for those seeking morning exploration, followed by afternoon relaxation in a world-class spa – a concept embodied by the Active & Balance programme.
Winter sports enthusiasts can indulge in luxury at the Dolomites. Lefay boasts access to 150km of slopes, 61 lifts, and 4 snow parks. Adventurous skiers can test their skills on five of the most stunning and challenging black pistes in the Alps. Additionally, guests can partake in winter paragliding, cross-country skiing, snow hiking, and mountaineering. Lefay caters to all your skiing needs with an on-site ski room and shop for equipment hire, purchase, and storage.
Max‘s advice: Make sure to take advantage of the morning’s breakfast buffet before embarking on one of the many adventurous activities available
Culinary Delights at Lefay Dolomiti
Lefay Dolomiti offers a choice of two fantastic restaurants. The gourmet ‘Grual’ restaurant, temporarily closed during Max’s visit, offers a lavish culinary experience in an enchanting, dimly lit setting inspired by a magical forest. ‘Dolomia’, the primary restaurant, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner while presenting breathtaking mountain views through its vast windows. It artfully combines traditional recipes with contemporary flavours. An added attraction is the Lefay Spa menu, a healthy culinary collaboration between the Lefay SPA Scientific Committee and principles of Classical Chinese Medicine infused with Western Knowledge.
Max’s advice: Add a zest to your breakfast with the buffet juicer. Try out various ingredients and maybe challenge yourself with a ginger shot every morning!
