It’s time to leave the stresses and strains of the city behind, enjoy the snow all day and let the sun shine on the beautiful slopes of the Gitschberg Jochtal ski resort and treat yourself to a wellness après-ski with heated pools, saunas, massages and moments of true relaxation.
A white oasis just a stone’s throw from the sky where you can switch off and treat yourself to an unforgettable alp-detox, with clean air, movement and care for your soul.
At Silena in Valles, winter rhymes with sport, wellness and tranquillity. So, after a full immersion on the snow-covered slopes with skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding and hiking, a spa of over 1500 square metres and many relaxing and wellness experiences await you in the hotel to restore body and mind and get in perfect shape for the evening appointment with the exclusive gourmet dinners of chef Christian Senoner.
There are many aprés-ski options to choose from. You can relax in the large heated outdoor pool with a view of the snow-capped peaks, or sip a drink in the outdoor lounge under the warmth of a brazier while waiting for the sunset to sprinkle the mountains in red and orange. Or move indoors, where the cosy atmosphere of the spa with its saunas, steam baths, meditation areas and many private niches helps to banish stress and restore harmony between body and mind.
Not only that. Why not treat yourself to a warm cup of tea accompanied by cakes and biscuits in the beautiful Haiku Lounge, where Asian teas meet South Tyrolean herbal infusions and where – at certain times – it is also possible to attend the traditional Tea Ceremony in a path not only of matcha tasting but also of meditation and inner research? A moment of harmony and purification that can continue in the spacious Kingdom of yoga, 80 square metres with heated floors and a view of the garden where every day the teacher Nina will help you to recharge your strengths and find the right balance between Yin and Yang.
Finally, what could be better for clearing your mind of negative thoughts and everyday stress than reading a good book? At the Silena, reading is like breathing! The hotel’s literary lounge houses around 1,000 carefully selected books: coffee table books dedicated to the beautiful things in life, novels, short stories, books about botanical gardens and the South Tyrolean mountains, beautiful volumes that invite you to let go, immerse yourself in reading and carve out some time for yourself. Where? In the quiet room with a view of the mountains, in the privacy of your own room where you can have a trolley of books brought to you to choose from, or in the sauna listening to an ‘infusion of words‘ (a reading recorded by South Tyrolean author Lenz Koppelstätter).
The important thing is to relax, let time flow and enjoy reading.
