northern part - for other regions go to the Mediterranean chapter

Home to many of the world’s greatest works of art, architecture, and gastronomy, Italy elates, inspires, and moves like no other.

Italy’s fortes extend beyond its galleries, wardrobes, and dining rooms. The country is one of nature’s masterpieces, with extraordinary natural diversity matched by few. From the north’s icy Alps and glacial lakes to the south’s fiery craters and turquoise grottoes, this is a place for doing as well as seeing. One day you’re tearing down Courmayeur’s powdery slopes, the next you could be galloping across the marshes of the Maremma, or diving in coral-studded Campanian waters. Not bad for a country not much bigger than Arizona.


our LXRY! hotel selection

We have some criteria before we can call a hotel a LXRY! Selection Hotel. We want to be surprised, we need luxury and hospitality at a high level, we love the quality of food and the rooms, we think the location is super important, and….we want to memorize the hotel for a lifetime! So you will not find basic chain hotels that look similar in all countries but truly found local gems that are different and memorable.

A Design Hotel at one with nature 

A place to retreat but also to experience, to lift off and rise above … at 1,354 above sea level on the sunshine plateau of Vals, near Meransen in South Tyrol and right next to the ski lift of the Alpine Gitschberg Jochtal. And most of all, the SILENA is a hotel for the soul. On the 26th of December 2017, they opened this new spa hotel as a 4-star superior concept with suites, literature rooms, and double rooms with the SILENA SPA, an Outdoor Pool, our Sein Garden, and our Tea Library.

The idea for the SILENA did not just fall from the sky. We literally discovered it for ourselves whilst on our travels. We realized what we wanted for holidays, here at the heart of the Alpine region Gitschberg: the secrets of wellbeing from South East Asia. This wellness concept is holistic, the interior design is inspired by the Feng Shui concept. With the focus on the essential combined with materials and decoration elements of nature, our design hotel brings you the full features of the upland moor landscapes. “Gardens under glass”, four-poster beds, and huge roof windows with sky views all contribute to your feeling of wellbeing.

Enjoy all the benefits of your mountain holiday in Vals/Meransen. Discover the mountains with your personal trainer Simon or get new ideas from a reading session with Magdalena. Find new inspiration in our natural cuisine or just find your favorite place for a poolside picnic. Every day you can find new impulses in yoga, Qi Gong, “breath walking” or guided meditation.

Plan your vacation days exactly according to your wishes. Yin and Yang in perfect balance.
