Preidlhof Luxury DolceVita Resort
South Tyrol, Italy
Nestled in the exquisite beauty of the South Tyrol, Preidlhof was the first well-being destination to receive an ISO wellness certification for its commitment to planet-positive values. All systems are designed to protect the environment. Furniture is made locally, pools are solar heated, the signature botanical skincare products are vegan and organic, and deliciously wholesome food is zero carbon. ‘I don’t eat anything that has a smile’, says Chef Emanuele Giorgione who created the menu. Smile you will, at the plant-based Wellness Healing Gourmet Menu, which includes the likes of beetroot falafel with cauliflower tabbouleh. Guests on retreat eat in a separate ‘Wellness Lounge’ and it’s these immersive programmes, of which there are nine, that people come for. Under the gentle genius of Patrizia Bortolin, one of the world’s most beloved spa creatives, Preidlhof offers transformative journeys for inner spirit. A team of outstanding therapists offer experience, vision, intuition, authenticity and wisdom. Shiatsu, shamanism, sound healing, massages, miracles… you’ll cry, laugh, come back to yourself, come out of yourself. Special classes, including laughter yoga, face gym, qi gong, dao yin and mindful eating, pass on powerful tools for sustainable everyday self care.
