Your second home in the mountains
At the Vitaurina Royal, Italy and South Tyrol reunite not only when it comes to culinary art: the furnishings too reveal the Alpine-Mediterranean impact. Felt meets light cloth, warm wood meets off-white tiles, earthy brown and grey nuances meet cheerful ochre and gentle light green – a homage to our green valley and nature, the most valuable treasure our Earth has given us and which needs to be protected. Therefore, the idea of sustainability is a key factor in our business.
Where the love for nature and the Ahrntal Valley can be felt in every corner
We furnished the premises by purpose with many natural materials, in order to create a pleasant and personal atmosphere. Look forward to the newly arranged dining room and winter sun parlour with panoramic views, the stylish bar, the cosy terrace and a small yet nice garden with comfortable sun loungers. In summer 2019, two new, traditional Tyrolean parlours will wait for you too. For those guests who like to have a smoke at times, we arranged an inviting smoking room.
