Food & Drink

Hotel Restaurant

Dolomièu has a festive feel, with red cushions and bushy wreathes on the walls in one section. The chef attempts to source all food locally, with fish coming straight from the mountain’s waterways. Look out for inventive takes on steamed lobster (serving it with guacamole, lime and tacos), trout sashimi and ravioli filled with braised pigeon.

Hotel Bar

The angular white Ice Cube Bar sits in between the lobby and the restaurant. Head here for a signature house cocktail in the wee hours.

Last orders

Breakfast starts at 7.30am in winter and 8am in summer, lasting until 10.30am all year round. The restaurant only opens for lunch on request. Dinner service starts at 7.30pm and finishes at 10pm. The bar shuts at 2am.

By Mr & Mrs Smith.

Mr & Mrs Smith have just returned from a stay at this boutique hotel in the Dolomites, and as soon as they've unpacked their ski jumpers and scarves, a full account of their luxury countryside break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick snapshot of DV Boutique Hotel & Spa in South Tyrol…

Even in high summer, it’s easy to get into the festive spirit at snug sanctuary DV Boutique Hotel. This cosy cabin sits close to the slopes in mountainous Madonna di Campiglio, a resort for seasoned skiers as well as beginners. From the outside, the timber structure is a classic chalet vision, but with a turreted twist.

Reclaimed wood lines the floors, walls and ceilings, with animal hides laid out here and there. The pine-covered restaurant will cater to the heartiest mountain appetite, with interesting dishes rolled out by the daring chef (he’s currently trialling alpine-fresh trout sashimi). Past the lobby, there’s an inviting lounge with a squashy sofa, patterned rug and wood-burning fire. There’s even a cigar room, for smoking that’s sheltered from the snow. The main aim is to keep guests warm and comforted from the snowy outdoors. Come in, dust off your boots and get defrosting. DV Boutique Hotel & Spwill take care of everything else.

We loved

From the website, DV Boutique sets the bar pretty high… when you actually stay there and experience the cool, calm, cosy interiors, second-to-none service, breathtaking spa and amazing food, your expectations are totally exceeded. It over delivers at every turn. We were there at the end of the season so there were very few guests but I get the impression that irrespective of how many people there were, the same experience would be given.

Don’t expect

It would have been amazing to be given a little parting gift – very few hotels do this but it leaves you walking on air when they do.

We spent two nights at the DV Boutique Hotel and had a great time there. The hotel is beautiful, in a great location with unique interior design, a relaxing spa, professional massages, an excellent restaurant, and last but not least outstanding staff. We'll come back for sure.
