Overlooking the breathtaking views of the Geislergruppe massif, a jagged and dramatic collection of mountains nestled in the Dolomites, Forestis, which sits 1800 m above sea level on the Plose mountain, marries paired-back elegance with a natural aesthetic. Grounded in the rhythms of nature, it is the ultimate conceptual destination for awe-inspiring quiet and regenerative relaxation.
For an exclusive take on our traditional ‘Spotlight On’ series, we’ve spoken to the co-owner of Forestis, Teresa Unterthiner and the Condo Founder, Riley Uggla, who recently visited the hotel, for a unique perspective that includes both a founder and guest view on this beautiful location.
"The serene atmosphere creates a sense of calm and tranquillity from the moment you arrive combined with the breathtaking views, vitalising mountain air and soothing atmosphere created by a soundtrack of nature."
Unterthiner considers the hotel an escape, “a complete immersion in nature”. Yet the noun ‘hotel’ seems barely appropriate for the expansive and utterly relaxing experience of staying at Forestis. The owners echo this sentiment, “we want our guests to take time for themselves and feel completely relaxed when they leave.” For Riley, the “serene atmosphere creates a sense of calm and tranquillity from the moment you arrive”. This trip was the Condo founder’s first visit to the Dolomites and she was enamoured by “the breathtaking views, vitalising mountain air and soothing atmosphere created by a soundtrack of nature”.
