The San Luis rises at Avelengo/Hafling a few km from Merano/Meran, around a 5800 sq. m lake in an unspoilt reserve, set in 40 hectares of alpine park. Its lodges are structures intended to facilitate primordial encounters with nature: the wooden chalets and treehouses are the fruit of a stripped-back style which combines natural elements and fine attention to detail. Even the central lobby, the Clubhouse, reflects the same philosophy and includes all the service and comfort of a hotel with its own particular alchemy.
The San Luis is part of an unspoilt realm, expressing a simplicity of style through the use of natural elements and great attention to detail. Nature is on display here, in energy-rich materials: wood, glass and clay alternate to welcome and protect. Our service, discreet and invaluable, is always ready to hear and respond to the needs of our guests, fully respecting their privacy. This is a retreat in which to listen to yourself. A setting in which to find yourself.
The San Luis offers different kinds of lodges; wooden chalets by the lake or nestled deep in the forest. You can even spend the night among the branches in treehouses of one or more levels. If you are looking for a very special room, the feeling of security and a retreat, 44 very personal square metres in loft style then the suite in the tree is for you. Here you have an overview with a spendid vista. Lots of wood, natural colours and sensuous materials characterise the fine, simple natural style of the suite in the trees. The view from the balcony is splendid. But why get up at all? You can enjoy this view from the bed too.
Conceived to keep the closest possible relationship with the surrounding environment, it extends over a single floor. Perfect for living among the clouds while keeping your feet on the ground it’s a real nest where you can let the sun’s rays embrace you as they filter through the trees. Here, the dreams of every child come true, linked with the luxury which adults expect from such a unique dwelling with such attention to style and to detail. Nature’s energy, transmitted by the trees, is present and tangible. Out onto the balcony and breathe freely! This sense makes it a perfect place to stun your loved one with an unforgettable question, or to rekindle that special alchemy.
Cuisine is also high up on the list at San Luis, with all food being crafted with local ingredients and the purest raw materials expertly combined by our kitchen staff, specialists in contrasting traditional alpine flavours with those of the Mediterranean. An invitation to taste and rediscover the source. Breakfast at San Luis is a private ritual. It is served directly in the chalets and the tree houses to allow all the guests to start the day unhurried, at their own rhythm. Home-made breads and cakes, spreads, but also fresh milk and salami; South Tyrolean tradition revisited for a taste of abundant goodness.
