Perched amidst the grandeur of Avelengo, at an elevation of 1,230 meters, the Miramonti Hotel is a beacon of century-long hospitality tradition.

Arriving at the Miramonti is an adventure through the splendour of nature. Nestled in Avelengo, a scenic 15-minute drive from Merano which takes you along a winding road with panoramic views to Hafling, where the hotel emerges seamlessly blended into the natural landscape.

The Miramonti offers a shuttle service to the adjacent Merano 2000 ski area, and for those flying in, the closest airport is Bolzano, with the hotel able to arrange transfers.

Today, the Miramonti Boutique Hotel stands as a testament to the passion and dedication of Carmen & Klaus Alber. Their personal history is woven into the fabric of the hotel, from their initial meeting to managing and ultimately purchasing it. Their commitment is evident in the tranquil luxury oasis they have created at Miramonti. The staff and owners consistently receive high praise, making it difficult to find any fault and ensuring a memorable stay for guests.

The hotel is entirely designed in a Nordic style, offering aesthetic pleasure in both summer and winter. Its interior mirrors the natural splendour of the surroundings. The soothing colours and locally sourced materials blend the outdoor essence with contemporary comfort. The central feature, the Tea Room, provides a welcoming space to unwind and savour an aperitif with friends or other guests.

The 44 suites and rooms, most facing south, are a haven of modern elegance, offering breath taking views of the mountains and Meran. Guests can enjoy large, contemporary spaces equipped with minibars, satellite channels, and, in some cases, a luxurious spa bath.

Facilities at the Miramonti are designed for indulgence and relaxation. The hotel boasts a free spa, infinity pool, a Japanese inspired Onsen pool, a Swedish forest sauna, and outdoor hot tub.

Three restaurants offer a blend of traditional and contemporary cuisine, promising culinary pleasures for every taste. Enjoy everything from freshly baked strudels and cakes to inventive, sophisticated dishes and South Tyrolean specialties, all curated under the watchful eye of Chef Massimo Geromel, who reinvents the menu daily.

The Miramonti Hotel is more than just a place to stay; it’s a destination that offers a unique narrative, one that weaves together the threads of history, nature, and contemporary luxury to create an experience that is as memorable as it is enchanting.
