Odles Lodge, the FORESTIS sister property situated in the Dolomites, has opened its doors to welcome guests to a peaceful retreat over 6,000 feet above sea level on Plose mountain. Through the vision of FORESTIS owners Teresa Unterthiner and Stefan Hinteregger alongside renowned South Tyrolean architect Armin Sader, the art of simplicity and idea of retreat intertwine through the minimalist details and immersive nature design at Odles Lodge. Odles Lodge is a four-apartment property, each with a unique layout design including floor-to-ceiling glass surfaces and a spacious terrace showcasing uninterrupted views of the Dolomites and connection to the crisp mountain air, endless sunshine, and calm energy that can be felt at such a high altitude.
Each of the four apartments were hand-crafted with local spruce and Swiss stone pine, essential oils of untreated local timber, and light sage green and cream hues to add touches of natural color in between the pine elements. With different sizes and floorplans, the apartments are specially designed for longer stays with an open-plan living area, fully equipped kitchen with a wood-burning or South Tyrolean-style stove, bathroom with a shower, free-standing bathtub in apartments 3 and 4, Wi-Fi, WC, hairdryer, and amenities that ensure relaxation.
Upon arrival, the kitchen fridge is stocked with typical South Tyrolean specialties, such as homemade jams and juices, dairy products from local farmers, eggs, and smoked ham, and a mountain breakfast is delivered to the apartment doors every morning. Shuttle and shopping services can be arranged upon request. The Odles Lodge Spa is an oasis tucked between the mountains within the green courtyard of the apartments, featuring a spacious in-ground pool, relaxing daybeds, stone-pine sauna, and steam bath, exclusive to Odles Lodge guests only.
Just down the mountain, sister property FORESTIS celebrates peace as a new luxury with rejuvenating amenities open to Odles Lodge guests with prior arrangement. The two-floor FORESTIS Spa offers signature treatments designed to regenerate the human body, an expansive indoor-outdoor heated pool, and four stunning saunas. The forest cuisine prepared by Chef Roland Lamprecht is available at the panoramic FORESTIS restaurant and forest-inspired drinks can be enjoyed at the bar. The extensive range of year-round experiences, such as ski-in ski-out, hiking, and excursions, can also be booked through FORESTIS.
