Italy's ski region of Madonna di Campiglio will get a new resort next year. Italian architecture firm Alberto Apostoli designed the interior of Lefay Resort and Spa Dolomiti, which will blend with the surrounding landscape and will reinterpret local traditional architecture, using elements commonly found in mountain buildings like stone and wood. Also involved in the development of the project is Hugo Demetz.
The property in the Italian Dolomite mountains will have 84 suites and a 54,000 square foot wellbeing area. Swimming pools, relaxation areas, saunas, a fitness zone and treatment rooms will be included in the spa, which will be one of the largest in the Alpine region.
The resort will also introduce the concept of Lefay Wellness Residences, with 25 homes starting at 1,076 square feet and with direct access to the wellness area and two restaurants.
The resort will focus on sustainability, and will be supplied by renewable energy sources and certified by ClimaHotel. Similar to the development of Lefay Resort & Spa Lago di Garda, which has offset 100 percent of the property’s CO2 emissions for the last five years, the property in the Dolomites will also be committed to the neutralization of its own emissions.
A third Lefay location is already in the planning stages for Tuscany.
Lefay Resorts was founded in 2006 by Leali and Domenico Alcide, founders of Air Dolomiti regional airlines, which was sold to Lufthansa in 2003.
