“Four generations from grandma to great-granddaughter follow their destiny and establish their very own pioneering host philosophy at the Eco Hotel Saltos. A hotel that sets new standards for the sake of nature and South Tyrol and at the same time more than does justice to the discerning design lover and connoisseur. "

The charming quartet behind the Eco Hotel Saltos consists of Grandma Traudl, daughter Hedwig and two granddaughters Nadja and Claudia. Hedwig and her daughters have led the hotel into a new era. The new building was only opened in 2019 and the convincing philosophy does justice to every nature lover. The concept of sustainability is present in all details from the “à la carte” breakfast to the interior and a 5% discount for guests arriving by train.


The first steps lead you past the hotel bar into the lounge area at over 1,100m above sea level. Here you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the spruce forest to the Dolomites. So take your time for your Italian espresso and a glass of crémant! As you walk up to the room, you will notice the wonderful watercolor drawings that Nadja painted for each room. In general, the great passion is noticeable in many individual details, such as the skillful Wabi Sabi flower decoration or the curation of coffee table books and magazines. The architecture creates wonderful shadow plays in the morning when the sun is over the Dolomites. As a lover of aesthetics, you will find a lot of pleasure in the rooms, which are kept in a harmonious minimalist style with earthy muted colors and natural materials and exude a special warmth.


You should start the day with a jump into the amazing infinity pool when the sun is over the Dolomites and you can enjoy the peace and freedom in nature at over 1,100m. Then it's on to breakfast before you can devote yourself to the daytime activities. Whether hiking in summer (track start right in front of the hotel!) or skiing in winter, you should definitely not miss the spa treatments and the spacious sauna area "in the middle of the forest". A special highlight is the forest bathing: Hedwig performs it in a very personal and intimate way with her guests. Since she is a trained yoga teacher, she attaches particular importance to this. In the evening, Grandma Traudl cooks fresh pasta with mussels for us and we can enjoy real South Tyrolean traditional food - still today we have the pasta in pleasant memories and therefore we can also praise the food at Saltos, which is served in the neighboring "mother hotel", which Grandma Traudl founded years ago and is a strong contrast with its traditional South Tyrolean style architecture and interior.

The modern and minimalist architecture of the new building completed in 2019 is impressive.

The lobby offers a setting that amazes design and architecture lovers. The view makes us breathless, so its time for you to take a seat and enjoy.

Everything fits together in a wonderful way:

earthy muted colors and ...

Thonet chairs like in an Italian street café and stylish concrete floor.

Dogs are WELCOME!

The rooms are at the same height as the treetops and so you look directly from the daybed into the spruce forest.

From the balcony you have a fantastic wide view! On clear days you can even see the Dolomites.

Every corner of the room offers modern aesthetics to fall in love with. The wood for furniture and facade comes from regional forests.

So man beautiful individual details...

The infinity pool is one of the highlights of the house! We feel so close to heaven ...

The best spot for an Aperol during sunset.

This look stays with us for eternity.

At the inside pool, we discover...

... wonderful shadow plays and exciting perspectives.

This might be the best pool for rainy days!

When you visit the sauna, you literally sit in the middle of the forest 🙂

The warm and visionary trio behind the first Eco Design Hotel in South Tyrol: Nadja, Hedwig and Claudia Mumelter.

Hotels with Soul by NECTAR & PULSE is a personal collection of our favourite hotels around the globe. They have two things in common: soul and passion. Some serve the best coffee we’ve ever tasted. Some the comfiest beds and linen. Some have a sauna in the woods and delicious home-made jams. Others have a butler available 24/7 or a hunter ready to take you on a hunt. One has a library where you’ll want to while away the hours, another one a kitchen stocked with the best midnight snacks.

What they all have in common is great design, friendly people, and authenticity. We call it the NECTAR & PULSE vibe. It’s that feeling where it’s so comfortable, it almost feels home, but you feel like there’s so much to learn, see, and do. These are the places that make you think to yourself, “there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.” Hotels with Soul are the ultimate destination for curious travellers with a good taste. Discover their story. Experience their soul.


We love to discover new places and to add more beautiful places to our collection. If you think that your hotel reflects our philosophy, please get in touch with us at hello@nectarandpulse.com. We are happy to give you further information, our media kit and our terms. We are looking forward to get to know you and eventually to work together.
