Nothing competes with the boutique Hotel Gitschberg in Maranza. The Gassla Spa suites are the epitome of exclusive living, personal spa delight and dream retreat in the South Tyrolean countryside.

In Gitschberg Jochtal, the sun-kissed Maranza plateau rises up 1400 metres above the daily grind. And that very place, where nature and mountains are on your doorstep, is the backdrop for Hotel Gitschberg, which is run by the nature-loving Peintner family.

This intensive connection with nature can be felt throughout the hotel, and nowhere more so than in the newly designed Gassla Spa suites. Both stylish and close to nature – for these two aspects are certainly not mutually exclusive. Visitors will find a lounge with a tea bar, a spring water fountain and a library, a bathroom with a bathing salts bar and private spa loggia with its own Swiss pine mountain sauna, a wonderful selection of fragrances and a forest floor experience.

If the suite is the crowing glory of the hotel, the stone floor in silver quartzite is the jewel in that crown.

The hand-split silver quartzite is unique in the world and sourced from the nearby Pfitsch Valley. It is rich in silica, alpine minerals and crystals such as tourmaline, zircon, haematite and pyrite. Alpine loden from Mössmer and Steiner and naturally treated larch and pine complete the picture.

I wanted to create a living space that was open, flexible and special – with a host of subtle details to make living relaxation. For people who love to holiday in an exclusive ambience”, says architect Gerhard Tauber. And nature has always been a good designer.
