SILENA, the soulful hotel

Vals, South Tyrol, Italy

A place to retreat but also to experience, to lift off and rise 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. The 4 star superior concept features suites, literature rooms and double rooms with the SILENA SPA, an Outdoor Pool, a Sein Garden and Tea Library. The idea for the SILENA was born whilst travelling through 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.
