Let's take off to South Tyrol

On my road trip to SILENA I crossed the impressing Brenner Pass by car. Surrounded by torrential wild streams falling down into the valleys, I felt a refreshing breeze caressing my cheeks. A cautious smile appeared on my face. I was almost there.

My little heaven

What I liked the most was the warm and welcoming atmosphere that was prevailing in every room of the hotel. Dimmed lights combined with the dark wooden furnitures made going to bed an utmost pleasant experience every night.

Checking out the rooftop suite

silena-review-72-hours-in-heaven
Have you ever had a private sauna in your bathroom? Or an enormous rooftop terrace? I did not until then...

It's time for wellness

When I entered the pool for the first time I noticed the comfortable temperature. And indeed, even in the winter you can easily go for a swim here or just float around.
Lovely surrounded by trees and green gras, this pool leaves nothing to be desired.

Everything your heart desires

Can you smell the woodlands?
After a relaxing session in the panoramic sauna I grounded myself with a first try in yoga...And this is actually more exhausting than I thought.

A feast for the eye

My personal dreams came true when i spotted the walkable cheese and wine fridges.
These two majestic fridges offered an enormous amount of delicious cheeses and selected wines from all over the world. And the food? Always a feast for the eye and just excellent in taste...

My personal highlight

When I returned from running there was an envelope waiting for me on my bed. It entailed a hand-drawn treasure map leading the way to a private outdoor picnic nearby the hotel. Following the path childhood memories of exciting treasure hunts came to my mind... Right at the edge of the forest I finally found what i was searching for: A beautifully decorated picnic, arranged especially for me.
