In view of the 2026 Winter Olympic Games, Cortina is renewing its tourism offering. The five-star hotel presents a new model of luxury hospitality in the mountains with new suites designed by architect Flaviano Capriotti. Among local materials, warm tones and discreet traits, in harmony with the surrounding landscape
Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, January 2024 – Charming hospitality in the heart of the Dolomites. The Faloria Mountain Spa Resort in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, enriches its 5-star accommodation with five new Tofane Suites and a Penthouse Suite designed by Flaviano Capriotti Architetti, the Milan firm of architects that in 2019 was in charge of the hotel extension project. Flaviano Capriotti Architetti develops an aesthetic language that dialogues seamlessly with the previous extension and fits in with the surrounding landscape, where extreme attention to detail and a delicate balancing of Alpine inspiration and contemporary design create a well-defined sense of understated luxurythat is all about elegance and discretion. The materials selected are those typically used for the local architecture: Dolomia stone, brushed larch, wool felt upholstery, and blue-green majolica that picks up on the colour of Alpine lakes. All elements then reworked by Capriotti in a contemporary key to create rooms that ooze comfort and exclusiveness. Rich in details conceived to ensure a gentle welcome, the suites are in warm colours with a delicate homey feel, thanks to elements like the parquet, the larch panelling and bedheads in padded wool featuring classic botanical patterns of Alpine flora.
Developed on two levels, three Tofane Suites offer wonderful views of the most majestic group of mountains in the whole of Valle d’ Ampezzo. The Tofane Suites have a large living area with generous sofas and dining tables, two double rooms complete with walk-in closets and en-suite bathrooms with generous showers and freestanding bathtubs. Wood panelling and historic ceilings in larch have been recuperated and restored by Flaviano Capriotti Architetti and then integrated into new walls with details in charcoal-dyed oak and ivory fabric. Characteristics like the versatility and connection between the different zones becomes a central element that meets the needs of those wanting more space and privacy: these communicating suites can also be joined to make a single unit measuring more than 250 m2.
Located in the central building of the hotel, from the Penthouse Suite you can admire the historic ski jumping ramp from the 1956 Olympics. Featuring double-height ceilings, it stands out for its understated contemporary style with walls and ceilings in larch and panelling in padded linen with traditional floral prints, as well as rich drapes in woollen cloth in the shades of sporting blue, the iconic colour of the “Faloria” brand. In the Penthouse Suite, furniture made to designs by architect Flaviano Capriotti dialogue with design pieces from some of the best-known brands made in Italy. The living area gives access to the large walk-in closer with a make-up area where the walls are covered in cloth in “Faloria” blue.
One of the details that adds personality is the research carried out into Alpine flora. The architect Capriotti has in fact selected from the Florae Austriacae atlas by the eighteenth-century botanist Nikolaus von Jacquin, 10 flowers typical of the Dolomites that have been reproduced on the padded bedheads and in other elements throughout the hotel. Botany has therefore become a sort of recurrent theme that also runs through the spa, public areas and restaurant to generate a visible legible storytelling inside the hotel. In this exclusive setting, guests can revive body and mind in the 1000 m2 wellbeing spa area, with its 25-metre semi-Olympic pool, calidarium, indoor and outdoor vitality pool, relaxation zone and fitness centre. To enjoy an exclusive culinary experience with views of the Alpine scenery, chef Giovanni Gagliardo offers a gastronomic journey into local tradition and Mediterranean culture. His cuisine focuses on ingredients from small producers in Cortina and the surrounding area with the aim of promoting less well-known and eco-friendly businesses. Guests at the Faloria Mountain Spa Resort will therefore experience a sensorial path linked to the natural identity of area, enjoying a cosy warm environment that will make them feel perfectly at home.
