The Luxury Collection opens in Italy its first ever ski resort

Located in Northeastern Italy and nestled within the spectacular Dolomites mountain range, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the dual-season Cristallo Hotel will reopen after a redesign of the hotel’s rooms and suites, as well as the hotel’s lobby. This month, the historic hotel located in the renowned Italian town of Cortina d’Ampezzo, will join The Luxury Collection, the world’s premier portfolio of upscale destinations, this June.

Owned and managed by the Gualandi family, the new Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, marks the brand’s first hotel in Cortina, and first ski resort worldwide.

The iconic property, which first opened in 1901, has a storied history that includes hosting The Winter Olympics, Hollywood film crews such as The Pink Panther, and celebrities such as Frank Sinatra. Cortina is one of Italy’s most sought after destinations for skiing, summer activities such as hiking and mountain biking, as well as one of the region’s top epicurean destinations

A second phase of renovation will be complete by December when the property will celebrate its first ski season as  part of The Luxury Collection. With this reopening, The Luxury Collection expands to eight hotels in Italy.

Boasting majestic views across Cortina and the monumental Dolomites, the hotel’s 74 guestrooms, including 20 suites and two Presidential suites, have been distinctively furnished to complement the property’s Italian heritage.

The Cristallo ULTIMATE SPA, a Transvital Swiss Beauty Center, focuses on locally-sourced, exclusive therapeutic treatments that provide signature detox, anti-ageing, relaxation and après ski rituals. Equipped with a rejuvenating Hammam, sauna and oversized Romanesque indoor pool, the 1600 square meter spa (5,200 square feet) also includes a spacious FitWell Club that offers cutting-edge fitness equipment, a virtual trainer, and spectacular views of the
Dolomites.
