Why We Love Hotel Ambet 

The Ultimate Mountain Holiday With Unparalleled Views and Fresh Mountain Air

As mountain lovers who frequently visit South Tyrol, we were particularly struck by the extraordinary views from Hotel Ambet. The hotel overlooks two valleys: the Pustertal to the east and Eisacktal (with the city Brixen) to the south. The fresh mountain air at over 1500 meters above sea level is invigorating and adds to the sense of escape.

The terrace is also an ideal spot for sunbathing, offering plenty of space to stretch out and bask in the sun. Heated sun loungers and sky beds provide a comfortable spot to catch some rays.

The highlight for us was the infinity sky pool, offering an unmatched panoramic view. We spent hours gazing into the distance, completely losing track of time. 

We got up early in the morning to seize the moment of solitude and take a photo for you. It was magical how the morning mist reflected in the large window, with steam from the heated pool hanging in the air.

Perfect Hotel for an Active Vacation in South Tyrol

Hotel Ambet’s location is ideal for a mix of relaxation and activity, making it the perfect destination for an active vacation in all seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Whether you’re biking, hiking, or skiing, the hotel’s mountain position allows for easy access to diverse natural landscapes.

We visited in late spring, but Hotel Ambet is also one of the best hotels in South Tyrol for skiing during the winter season. With direct access to the slopes, you can put on your skis at the doorstep in the morning and glide directly from the hotel to the Gitschberg-Jochtal ski area. After a day of skiing, you can ski back to the hotel entrance in the late afternoon, making it incredibly convenient. After an exhausting day on the slopes, you can unwind in the wellness area, enjoying the perfect end to an active day.

If you’re staying longer and missing the city flair, Brixen is just a stone’s throw away (about 25 minutes by car), and Bolzano can be reached in an hour. There’s definitely something for every taste.

Breakfast and Afternoon Treats

We haven’t even talked about one of the most important things yet: the food. As big breakfast lovers, we were thrilled with the breakfast buffet, which left no wishes unfulfilled. In the mornings, a small newsletter with organized hikes and tips awaited us on the table – ensuring that guests are informed about all upcoming activities of the week.

In the afternoons, a variety of sweets and cakes, like apple strudel with vanilla sauce, were offered. These delicious treats were perfect for satisfying our sweet tooth and complemented our afternoon coffee wonderfully.

Dinner Delights

Dinner at Hotel Ambet featured changing dishes and a large salad buffet to start. I don’t know how Italians do it, but every time I cross the Italian border, I’m reminded that this country has a knack for turning simple ingredients into culinary masterpieces. Highlights included creamy burrata, grey cheese risotto, baked green asparagus with Bolzano sauce, lasagna bolognese, potato gnocchi, tender venison goulash and juicy salmon fillet with spinach. In addition, there was a delicious selection of desserts that satisfied our sweet cravings, such as the yogurt cream with mango heart and almond crunch. 

The wine selection was extensive, including local wines. We also loved enjoying an aperitivo in the Panorama-Bar before dinner, which became a delightful routine during our stay.
