The Perfect Alpine Setting
High among the forest canopy, My Arbor beckons as a secluded haven, perched on stilts amidst the tranquil embrace of nature, a sanctuary from the chaos of daily life. Its very name, “My Arbor,” pays homage to its essence – a retreat firmly rooted in the tree-clad slopes of the Plose, where the untouched wilderness unfolds.
Nestled within the heart of South Tyrol, Italy, My Arbor finds itself in a captivating confluence of alpine majesty and sun-drenched Mediterranean vineyards, framed by the awe-inspiring Dolomites Mountains – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This region’s fame lies in its production of delectable treasures, from succulent apples to exquisite wines and savoury speck, all nurtured by the bounteous sunshine and centuries-old farming traditions. South Tyrol itself is a mosaic of Italian, German and Ladin cultures, blending a relaxed southern ambience with deep-seated agricultural heritage.
A stone’s throw from My Arbor, Brixen awaits, a captivating town where history and modernity entwine seamlessly. Here, visitors can enjoy life in the slow lane, taking their time to traverse cobblestone alleyways, peruse cultural exhibitions and uncover historical gems. Don’t pass up the chance to savour the modern café delights, indulge in fine dining experiences, and partake in the vibrant local festivities that colour this enchanting town.
My Arbor’s mountainous playground, the Plose, is just a short stroll from the hotel – and from here, a quick cable car trip whisks you up to the top of the mountain. In summer, it unveils sweeping panoramas of the Dolomites and the Zillertal and Sarntal Alps. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy endless entertainment, from navigating numerous hiking trails to embarking on summit conquests, exploring freeride bike paths, and engaging in exhilarating mountain cart adventures. As temperatures dip, the Plose undergoes a winter transformation, offering a snowy paradise ripe for hiking, sledging and world-class skiing. An absolute must-try is the thrilling 9-kilometer Trametsch Valley Run, the longest of its kind in South Tyrol, promising an unforgettable experience.
An Architectural Marvel in the Treetops
My Arbor’s striking architecture is a testament to innovation and nature-inspired design. Perched nearly 1,000 meters above sea level, the hotel appears to float among the trees, providing unparalleled views of the surrounding landscape. The building’s unique structure, elevated on tree trunk stilts, evokes the sensation of living in a sophisticated treehouse. Rooms, soaring up to 35 meters above the ground, cocoon guests in a “nest” high above the world, enveloped by the soothing presence of ancient trees.
Home to 104 opulent suites, each meticulously designed to offer the pinnacle of comfort and luxury, My Arbor has a variety of accommodations for any preference. Whether you choose the Nest, Hangout, or Treetop category, a balcony awaits, providing the same majestic mountain views, ensuring each day begins and ends with breathtaking scenery. Adorned in a soothing palette of natural tones and complete with all the luxuries under the sun, these rooms offer a world of indulgence at guests’ fingertips.
Rest, Relax, and Relish Fine Fare
The heart of relaxation at My Arbor is found within Spa Arboris, a sprawling 2,500 m² oasis hidden among the trees. Here, guests can immerse themselves in utter tranquillity, surrounded by an infinity pool, treatment rooms, saunas and outdoor relaxation spaces. Inspired by native trees and plants, the spa’s rejuvenating therapies bring harmony to body, mind and soul. Be sure not to miss the daily sauna rituals led by the sauna master, an enchanting sensory journey that combines music, scents and heat.
My Arbor is equally a haven for culinary enthusiasts, offering a fusion of South Tyrolean and Italian flavours with global creativity. With no rules or set mealtimes, dining follows guests’ own paces and preferences. Breakfast extends until noon, and morning snacks are always an option. Afterwards, head into nature for a leisurely brunch. Come evening, savour a five-course culinary journey from Chef Matthias Hinteregger’s suggested menu or a selection from the “Evergreens” menu, both featuring dishes crafted from the freshest local ingredients. At the same time, wine enthusiasts can delight in an extensive wine cellar guided by a sommelier, while beer aficionados can explore the beer lounge with a dedicated beer sommelier.
From its architectural wonder to its standout spa and culinary offerings, it’s clear that My Arbor takes great pride in fostering a space where the beauty of the natural environment can flawlessly coexist with contemporary luxury. A place where “me-time” is the only time, this is the idyllic year-round destination where guests can revel in the glory of all four seasons while enjoying the freedom to live at their own pace, unburdened by the demands of a busy life.
