Located in the picturesque mountains of South Tyrol, Italy sits Hotel Hubertus. This luxury hotel in the Dolomites has a chic country atmosphere and allows guests to become one with themselves and the surrounding nature. Hotel Hubertus is family-run and began as a small mountain inn before transitioning to a modern luxury wellness escape. Hotel Hubertus is perfect escape to the day to day stress, breathe in the clear, fresh mountain air and enjoy the breathtaking view.
Home to the largest rooftop terrace in Olang, South Tyrol, hotel Hubertus is instantly recognisable thanks to its unique infinity sky pool overlooking the breathtaking Dolomites and the Vedrette di Ries Mountains. This 25-foot long pool is an architectural masterpiece and has a glass window in the floor that allows for new perspectives of South Tyrol. The pool sits in between hotel on either side and has hidden edges that makes it seem like it’s a floating. It is the perfect contract between the old and new with native larch tree trunks supporting the pool. The pool is also heated year-round and its seamless design makes it feel like you are drifting into the mountain peaks.

Chef Mayr’s dishes are skillfully created and combine Mediterranean flavours with a dash of international aromas. Wine lovers will be delighted to know that South Tyrol has cultivated award-winning wines for over 3,000 years and is known as the land of the mountains and wine.
There are many activities on the Hotel Hubertus property and in surrounding areas. During the summertime, guests can sunbathe on one of the hotel’s many terraces or try mountain biking. The wintertime time allows for snowy activities like snowshoeing and snowboarding.
