SILENA, the soulful hotel | a hotel architecture & design gem in South Tyrol

It is unbelievable how much the architectural hotel industry has changed in South Tyrol. Everything towards the positive. South Tyrol can only boast such a variety of design, family, sports hotels and so on. The in Vals, Eisacktal, is a true design jewel among them. It was reopened in 2017 with a new design by the renowned South Tyrolean architecture studio noa*.

I had only heard good things about the hotel, so a visit was overdue. From time to time you should do something for your soul…

“Take time to do what makes your SOUL happy”

INTERIEUR

The design concept in SILENA is inspired by the Far Eastern travels of the hosts. Feng Shui furnishingsare based on Asian elements that run through the entire house: warm natural elements combined to create a clean interior. The SILENA is also located in a moorland area. The architects created a mix of elements from a moor with the Asian style. These can be found particularly in the newly designed rooms, in the spa area and in the reception.

A highlight of the new wellness hotel concept is not only the wonderful spa area, but also the newly designed tea library with Japanese tatami matson the floor and a large selection of literature.  This invites you to spend a few relaxing hours in the morning or after the hike. Literary balm for the soul.  Magdalena also holds readings here again and again.

THE SOULFUL ROOMS

In addition to the classic rooms, which are reminiscent of the old peasant style, the SILENA also offers its SOULFUL rooms.  A highlight is her SOULFUL Literature Suite as well as the SOULFUL Rooftop Suite.

The design of the SOULFUL rooms conveys a sense of cosiness by following the elements of the moor.  In contrast, there are light elements such as the four-poster bed with leather headboard and the airy fabric elements. On sunny days, the aluminium façade also reflects beautiful plays of light into the interior.

WELL-BEING & SPA

The “soulful” concept is particularly noticeable in the relaxation room.  The wellness worlds are divided into two floors. On the ground floor is the indoorand outdoor pool, steam bathand herbal sauna, as well as two relaxation areas. On the 5th floor there is the Adults-Only area with the panorama sauna on the roof terrace.  I personally found this subdivision very pleasant.  The different saunas also got special names…  Herbaria, the herbal sauna or for example the Finnaria, the panorama sauna on the 5th floor.

For two days we just let our souls dangle and didn’t even leave the hotel.  This was especially pleasant at the weekend, as many guests went skiing or walking during the day.  We enjoyed different saunas in warm blankets.  In the evening there were also two infusions – one in the steam bath and one in the panorama sauna.

And which design hotel has a popcorn machine? Not many. Great for a little snack in the afternoon.
