DESIGN HOTELS™ – VIGILIUS MOUNTAIN RESORT.
At 1,500 metres above sea level, where Vigilius Mountain Resort is nestled, nature provides such a stunning visual spectacle that not a single artwork is displayed at the hotel so as not to distract from the scenery outside. Everything at this stylish, tranquil hideaway has been designed to work in tune with its surroundings, with sustainability and energy-efficiency among the primary objectives. The roof of the wooden building is covered with grass; the stone partitions in the 41 rooms are internally heated for warmth and comfort and the kitchen uses mainly local and, where possible, organic produce. A seven-minute ride in the historic “Bahndl” cable car over the lush larch trees is still the only way of accessing the resort. And once you’ve reached your destination you’ll quickly agree that nature’s art is truly a masterpiece.
