Located in the prominent Naturno, nestled in the high mountain landscapes of Venosta Valley, LA VIMEA is a 100% vegan experience. A natural sanctuary for plant-based eaters, vegan-curious and game changers. The hotel offers the best of both worlds: an Italian sense of style and South Tyrolean hospitality. Large open spaces in the lobby, bar and restaurant have a modern Scandi feel with wooden furnishings, natural materials and the floor-to-ceiling glass walls that let in natural light. Everything has been designed and realized with the principles of eco-sustainability in mind.
The guest rooms are modern, stylish, spacious and have an atmosphere of simple luxury. The interior design is in line with the hotel’s eco-friendly philosophy: solid wood furnishings, all locally sourced and made to measure. Guests can dream in fair-trade organic cotton, tencel sheets and biodegradable mattresses. Bathrooms are equipped with vegan-friendly organic bodycare. All rooms feature large bathrooms with separate shower and toilet. Many have large balconies with spectacular mountain views.
Fittingly for a hotel that takes its philosophy seriously, the staff treats guests like family while never overstepping the bounds of professionalism, creating an atmosphere of welcome and care. Guests can expect to be greeted by the vegan chef or be reminded of their anniversary with a pleasing detail. Visitors can take part in a range of daily activities including yoga, Ayurvedic massage and detox treatments, walking and biking tours, and enjoy a variety of facilities including three saunas, an indoor pool with its relax area, lilies filled natural pond and more.
Simply dive into the natural bathing pond, detox in one of three saunas, get lazy in the hot stone lounge, try the infra-red cabin. Stretch in yoga room or on the outdoor yoga deck, relish the energetic healing with the massage divas. Submerge into forest bathing and mountain hiking trails.
