Between magical Salto/Salten, the porphyry red Val Sarentino/Sarntal Alps, and the everlasting Dolomites, there is a place that has an extraordinary effect on us. Things that otherwise seem important lose their weight and simply fly away, disappearing into the blue sky, between the treetops and infinity. In this moment, something completely different becomes important – something that we have almost forgotten. It awakens in us when we prick up our ears and listen to the sounds of the forest. When we inhale deeply and fill our lungs with fresh air that smells of moss and early morning dew. Amid this fascinating world, one of the most unique eco hotels in South Tyrol rises out of the forest, blending harmoniously with the natural colours of the surroundings. Rooms and suites are nestled next to one another, with limestone flooring and clay walls, porphyry stone from the excavation, and beeswax sealants. All this makes us forget all our spatial limitations and embed ourselves in an illusion of true boundlessness. Is it an illusion? Naturalness and aesthetics are masterly combined at 1,100 metres above sea level. In the Forest Spa. In the rooftop Sky Pools. In all rooms of our eco hotel in South Tyrol. Next to your bed, there is a small booklet for your big thoughts, inspired by the very essence of being. You can find this expressed in so many ways in this very special place. Feel free to keep the booklet – just like the memories of your extraordinary stay in San Genesio/Jenesien.
Ode to earth.
For the construction of our eco hotel, we used natural materials from the region. Larch wood for the façade, porphyry rock from the excavated materials for the flooring, and loam clay and limestone for the floors and walls. We also used lots of inspiration to create an unparalleled living experience.
With the cable car, you can soar effortlessly over the treetops towards the seclusion of our eco hotel – looking down at endless shades of green. Just eight minutes separate the lively city of Bolzano/Bozen from this extraordinary natural setting in San Genesio/Jenesien, where you will find the Hotel Saltus awaiting your arrival. We will reward you for your carbon-neutral journey by train.

As if by itself, my outlook has changed. Every morning, I get up and feel light. I almost have to laugh that I had forgotten about that feeling…
