Dreaming of a stay in South Tyrol with epic mountain views, close proximity to the Dolomites, hikes, skiing, golf, and more? Then look no further.
The Romantik Hotel Turm is a 5-star hotel that oozes charm, class, and romance (it’s in the name after all!)
Bradley and I spent two nights at this fantastic family-run hotel in July and I’m going to take you through all the highlights of our stay.
The Romantik Hotel Turm offers a range of rooms to suit your needs.
These include double rooms and a range of suites.
All the rooms and suites have unique names, and Bradley and I stayed in “Suit Hooded Crow”.
This beautiful suite is located in the main building and features a free-standing bathtub (which is truly wonderful), a dark oak wooden floor, green chaise lounges situated at the TV creating a super cosy lounging area. Bathroom with double shower, a wonderful feature for couples on a romantic break together.
There’s also a large double bed and a small balcony area with tables and chairs perfect for enjoying a pre-dinner drink in your room.
This room was beautifully decorated with tones of brown, green, and cream which gives a cosy yet light feel to the room, and there are lots of windows to allow natural light into the area.
The room also comes with all the amenities you’d expect from a 5-star hotel including, a mini-fridge with a stocked bar, complimentary toiletries, dressing gowns and slippers, and a large wardrobe for your clothes.
The Romantik Hotel Turm is an “art hotel” and what I mean by this is that as you walk around the property you’ll see artwork and pieces everywhere, including at the art gallery.
As part of your stay, you can arrange a guided art tour, and you’ll see unique pieces of art in your room too.
The dining experience at the Romantik Hotel Turm is something you will not forget.
When you stay at the property you can opt for a half-board experience.
This will include your breakfast at the property and one of the half-board menus on offer.
Let’s start with breakfast.
This is served in buffet style which includes a range of pastries, traditional South Tyrolean apple strudel, (delicious!), a range of bread, cheeses, cold cuts, granola, and even the chance to make a fresh smoothie out of fresh ingredients laid out before you.
This is a unique feature we haven’t seen in many hotels!
There’s also Prosecco and juice so you can create your own Mimosas.
As well as the buffet experience, you can also order from the “egg menu” which is included in your breakfast board.
They have a range of scrambled eggs and omelet options, all of which are freshly prepared and delicious.
There are also a few extra dishes on the menu which incur an extra charge.
You’ll also be offered fresh coffee, such as cappuccino, espresso, coffee with milk, tea (whatever your heart desires!)
Before dinner, you can opt for a drink with mountain views on the terrace at the bar. I highly recommend you pop there before you enter culinary heaven!
If you opt for half board, you pay €39 per person per day or dine á la carte.
The 39 euro deal includes either the “Romantik menu” or the “1001 calories menu” which typically includes a 5-course meal.
Drinks are extra, but there is a wide range of drinks on offer, including a never-ending list of wine, champagne, or you can opt for a cocktail or liquor from the bar.
They list which wines will complement the meal on the menu, which is a great idea since there is such a wide range of wines on offer.
If you ever feel overwhelmed by the wine menu, simply as the staff for a recommendation, they’re extremely knowledgeable and will be happy to help!
Bradley and I are vegetarian, and I can say that both meals we had were absolutely fantastic.
It’s some of the most creative and tasty vegetarian food we have had, and I was seriously impressed by the effort that went into the food.
You’d be surprised at the quality of vegetarian food we get offered at times, but at the Romantik Hotel Turm, it was innovative, creative, and simply delicious.
The only issue I would say is that the vegetarian menu offered was the same menu as the “1001 calories menu”, which is implying that vegetarian food needs to be light, and low calorie, in comparison to a meat menu. This is a difficult assumption, but having said that, the food was great!
The Romantik Hotel Turm caters to vegans too, and any food allergies you might have, just let them know in advance.
With either menu you opted for, you also get full use of the “salad buffet” which offers a range of delicious salad items to compliment your meal, or even have as a starter.
You’ll also be given fresh bread accompanied by olive oil, or sometimes a cream cheese, or whatever has been prepared that day, so you will not be hungry by the end of your meal (trust me!)
We did find the buffet salad idea a little strange to start with, as it didn’t match the theme of the service, but it was an excellent salad bar, so definitely worth it!
On our second evening in the Romantik Hotel Turm, we had the chance to dine in the rose garden.
This is something that can be arranged once you arrive.
But do note that the two half-board menus mentioned above are NOT included, you need to dine a la carte.
If you want a truly romantic evening, then I 1000% recommend you book a table in the rose garden.
I can honestly say that this was one of the most romantic settings we’ve ever had dinner (and we’ve been pretty lucky at some locations we’ve dined at).
The sun was setting, there was live music, views of the mountains, and you’re surrounded by roses.
What’s not to love?
The food on this evening was truly fantastic as was the service.
The Romantik Hotel Turm has one of the most unique spa settings I’ve ever seen.
What you’ll soon notice about this hotel is that it’s built into the rock, so they’ve gone below, rather than outwards.
This results in a pretty unique building.
There is a fully-serviced spa offering a wide range of massages, baths, facials, and treatments all at very reasonable prices.
And you can opt for different spa packages, for yourself, or you and your partner.
Bradley and I opted for a full body massage and it was wonderful.
Bradley said it was the best full-body massage he’s had!
After your massage, you can head to one of the many fantastic saunas on offer. I don’t love saunas, but Bradley went and had a nosy and he absolutely loved the saunas.
There are a variety on offer including a Finnish sauna with homely flair, spruce sauna, aroma steam bath and the salt grotto.
The Turm wellness hotel doesn’t just have a swimming pool like any other. It has a fantastic black pool which offers views of Sciliar.
You can swim from the inside to outside (which is a pretty cool thing in itself) and the swimming pool is heated to 32°C warm water which makes it suitable for swimming all year round.
There’s also a hot tub inside which is a relaxing haven and the perfect place to just close your eyes and relax.
If you want to work on your fitness during your stay then you can use the gym facilities which feature cardio and weight equipment alongside beautiful outdoor views. There is even an indoor natural rock climbing wall (built onto the actual rock!) which is pretty cool!
This is a brilliant choice of hotel for couples, and if you’re seeking a romantic mountain getaway, then I highly recommend this hotel.
South Tyrol is brimming with fabulous hotels, so it’s always difficult to actually choose who to stay with.
But if you seek luxury accommodation with fantastic food, facilities, and super friendly staff, then this is the place for you.
Everything about this hotel gives off that traditional South Tyrolean Vibe, and that really adds to the charm of the hotel.
I want to give an extra shout-out to the staff who make you feel welcome from the moment you enter the door.
Everyone is super friendly and charming.
