Perhaps it's down to our mentality, perhaps also simply because we want to stay positive, that we were renovating four of our suites for the winter season. Two Larch Suites and two Oriel Suites. Some of the suites even have a second level with two beds and are being furnished with a daybed and an individually adjustable standard lamp. Whoever is sleeping on the upper level in the gallery feels a little like they are on the mountain pasture: more liberated, high above the hustle and bustle of life in the valley.
When I took over from my parents a few years ago a major project lay ahead despite the small size of the hotel. I knew that over the coming years the Lärchenhof needed to prepare for the future, to reinvent itself and develop a unique concept. The longer we sat together, the clearer it became to us: outside is where we most like to be. Hiking, skiing, breathing wonderful fresh air and generally being active. Just as it is for our guests, the feeling of being in the mountains is always grounding for us too.
We are the MOUNTAIN HOTEL and want to bring the feeling of being outside in nature into the hotel. That’s why we consider how best to remain true to our mission for every renovation. In the case of the renovation of our four suites, for example, the following considerations are factored in:
- We check exactly where it is more sustainable to use existing, real materials and waste nothing in the long term. Here at 1,400 metres above sea level we make long-term decisions anyway in order to make good use of our energy.
- Where possible we only use natural materials from the mountains such as wood, felt/loden, glass, leather and stone so that staying with us has an authentic feel.
- We design our bathrooms with open showers to make them as spacious as possible. And the power of the South Tyrolean mountains will also be felt in the future through the natural cosmetics line TREHS.
