The all-new Hotel Melodia del Bosco in Pedraces has been constructed from wood. The modern hotel offers three room categories, including panoramic rooms with huge balconies overlooking the Santa Croce mountain range and family suites sleeping up to four people in two separate bedrooms. Facilities include a wellness area with sauna, steam room and whirlpool, and a restaurant offering local Ladin specialities. Known as the 'Gourmet Valley' in South Tyrol, Alta Badia is home to no less than three Michelin-starred restaurants. Skiers can enjoy oysters served on crushed ice at the Col Alt refuge on the slopes with perfect access to the Sella Ronda – a circular ski route through the Dolomites that links about a dozen ski resorts and more than 350 miles of lift-linked skiing like the hub of a wheel with valleys radiating out from it.
