The New Lefay Resort & SPA Dolomiti
After the prestigious facility on Lake Garda, Lefay opens the second 5-star Luxury Resort & SPA in Pinzolo, the ski area of Madonna di Campiglio.
A complex that seems to emerge from the woods and blends perfectly into the landscape in which it is located: in line with the philosophy of the brand, Lefay Resort & SPA Dolomiti reinterprets the traditional architecture of the area. It rediscovers the recurring elements of mountain buildings, such as timber, stone and the rigorous simplicity of the finishes, and through a strong Italian style, gives prestige and luxury at an international level.
Based on these environmental elements, the design team laid the foundations for the interior design concept. A design idea that, in accordance with the client’s wishes, the Leali Family, and in close collaboration with the Lefay Resorts Project Team, communicates precise values, including Italian lifestyle, contemporary luxury and environmental and energy sustainability.
The structure is on nine levels, naturally set in the surrounding mountains – four dedicated to private residences and five to hotel accommodation. There are 88 suites – divided between Prestige Junior Suite, Deluxe Junior Suite, Family SPA Suite, Exclusive SPA Suite and a Royal Pool & SPA Suite – and 23 apartments. The apartments are arranged according to different sizes and compositions, all equipped with kitchen, living room and dining room, plus one, two or three bedrooms with related services.
Both typologies are characterised by the integration of the sleep and bath areas, zoned and separated by timber screens and by the use of oak paneling and brass inserts, with custom made furniture.
The large entrance lobby with lounge, reading room, outdoor Sky Lounge, meeting areas, indoor shops and two restaurants make up the large common areas, however the real heart of the resort would undoubtedly be that of the SPA. Covering about 5,000 square meters, is one of the largest in the Alps and It is spread over several levels.
The treatment area is intended to be a temple of peace and tranquility, offering to guests a domestic atmosphere, through the use of materials such as natural oak parquet and eco-leather sofas. The relax area is a sort of revisited winter garden and offers a splendid view of the surrounding mountains.
The area includes 21 cabins, one-third of which panoramic over the valley, and it offers a wide range of treatments in line with the principles of the Lefay Method, the innovative method created by the Lefay Scientific Committee, which combines Classical Chinese Medicine with western medicine.
The two Private SPA, the “Bosco” and the “Baita” are very peculiar. They offer a 360° sensory and immersive couple path: the first through a forest recreated on the wall through photographic wallpapers and real birch trunks that emerge from a resin floor and pine needles; the second, through the creation of the magical and intimate atmosphere of a small mountain chalet, with natural granite stone coverings, eco-fur rugs and the large fireplace. The Retail and Coiffeur area complete the space.
The large sauna area was also designed according to the Lefay SPA Method principles. The circuits, with different temperature and humidity levels, phytotherapies and dedicated aromatherapies, were created to satisfy the energetic personalities of the guests.
