Pure nature & relaxation

Excelsior Dolomites Life Resort

A natural kingdom: Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park

Pure nature & relaxation

Your wellness resort with a guided activity programme at the heart of the Dolomites. In summer, look forward to hiking, mountain and e-biking; in winter, to snowshoe hiking, tobogganing, cross-country skiing and alpine skiing, with direct access to the pistes of the Kronplatz. The premium interiors and the wellness areas spanning 2,500 m2 in total guarantee head-to-toe relaxation after an adventure-packed day in the Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park.

In July 2024, the doors will open to a completely new dimension of stay at the Excelsior. Five luxurious de luxe feel-good rooms and two exclusive luxury suites are available to the guests. The brand new Dolomites Family Spa takes everybody into an oasis of fun and relaxation. In addition, the restaurant and buffet area, including a fascinating show kitchen, has been extended and redesigned.

The idyllic mountain village of St. Vigil stands out for its glorious location, embedded in the unique landscape of the Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park on the southern slope of Kronplatz mountain. This natural Alpine setting with its wide plateaus is the scene of many Ladin legends and fairy tales of perished kingdoms and paradisiacal landscapes that have since turned to stone. Today, the village of St. Vigil at the end of the valley is the ideal starting point for hikes, mountaineering and mountain biking tours that take visitors to the heart of the magnificent South Tyrolean Dolomites, the largest UNESCO Natural Heritage site in South Tyrol. Mountain lakes, rocky pinnacles and flower-studded meadows are easily accessible, thanks to a transport network based on sustainable mobility, making this region the destination of choice for holidaymakers who enjoy Alpine sports.

In winter, guests may access the Kronplatz ski resort directly from the hotel, one of the most beautiful and largest resorts in South Tyrol.

"Hiking has always been my great passion. It is a pleasure and an honour for me to show guests the most beautiful alpine pastures, forests and peaks in our nature parks."
