Adler Mountain Lodge is inviting couples to ignore Valentine’s Day and all those cooing couples in restaurants on 14 February, and instead opt for a Romantic Alpine Break at a 15% discount, up until 12 February and from 22 February to 8 March 2015
The Romantic Alpine Break allows couples to celebrate their love for each other in a Junior Suite or Chalet, with a heart-warming spa treatment for two, a bottle of sparkling wine with fresh fruit to be enjoyed on their own private terrace, and a romantic sleigh ride through the snowy mountain scenery of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Dolomites. Prices start from Euros 972 (approx £725) per person for a three-night full-board stay – price includes 15% discount.
When not warming their cockles by the roaring log fire – either in the lounge or in the privacy of their own Chalet – there is plenty of unspoilt wintery landscape for couples to explore and enjoy. There is skiing on the doorstep, thanks to the hotel’s ski in/ski out ability right on the piste in Alpe di Siusi, the largest mountain plateau in Europe with 60km of well-groomed slopes, but there are also plenty of winter hiking routes and toboggan runs for non-skiers who simply want to soak up the pristine atmosphere.
This really is an unparalleled opportunity to hole up in an area recognised for its outstanding natural beauty. Construction in this protected zone is so closely controlled, it took over ten years to gain the permission to build Adler Mountain Lodge. The result is very special: somewhere that daily routines are forgotten, pressures disappear and tranquillity emanates from the landscape, particularly in the evenings when the lifts have stopped running and the crowds have returned to the valley.
With just 30 bedrooms, the hotel consists of a central wooden lodge and an arc of 12 small chalets, modelled on old Tyrolean mountain huts, so that they blend in with the Alpe di Siusi’s natural setting. The main lodge houses the reception, a cavernous lounge with open fireplace, spacious sun terrace, restaurant, wellness and spa facilities, indoor/outdoor infinity pool and 18 guest suites, all with panoramic views of the Dolomites. The 12 south-facing, two-storey chalets, located just up the slope from the main lodge, offer something unique: the chance to holiday in a private chalet, while enjoying all the benefits of a hotel, making them perfect for couples booking the Romantic Alpine Break.
