Founded in 1836, the Grand Hotel Bagni Nuovi is a majestic spa resort in the Italian Alps. Its pink Art Nouveau exterior is dotted with red shutters and flower-filled balconies, and a 30-year restoration ensured that the interiors are just as grand, with opulent Venetian-style halls with stucco and frescos. The 74 guestrooms are filled with handmade furniture, and Platino Rooms come with panoramic views of the valley or mountains and bathrooms lined with white Carrara marble and equipped with hydromassage bathtubs. But the real draw here is the spa. It’s divided into four sections, with open-air baths, natural hot springs, pools and a vaulted basement home to more than 70 thermal facilities. Traditional Italian dishes are served in the main restaurant, Salone dei Balli, which occupies the hotel’s exquisite ballroom and features polished floorboards, an original fireplace, soaring dome ceilings and Murano glass chandeliers.
In the Area
If you can tear yourself away from the spa, head out and get active in the hotel’s stunning surroundings. Rent a bike and explore the terrain, or hike for miles in the Italian Alps. The hotel can help organize trips to Stelvio National Park. The largest of the historic Italian parks, it’s filled with streams and lush forests and teems with wildlife. Come winter, a courtesy bus ferries guests to and from the ski lifts. Bormio is located at an altitude of 4,020 feet and has a huge range of slopes for beginners and experts. You can also rock-climb, ice-climb and paraglide in the area.
How to Get There
This grand hotel is one that seems conjured out of a dream from another time and place when beauty and elegance were prized above efficiency or cost. It’s an amazing tribute to the times of the Grand Tour and you can just imagine what it used to be like to be a tourist here in the golden days. Our Alpine room was spacious with a huge terrace overlooking the front gardens. It’s simply appointed but has everything you need. The former ballroom is now an elegant restaurant with fine dining. If anything lets this hotel down it’s that the service is more indicative of a 3 or 4 star with a few exceptions. The bar manager, Ugo is a 5* bartender with wonderful, personal service and attention which is expected in a 5* hotel. Also, a few of the waitstaff in the restaurant are very friendly and attentive. The service in the room was a bit inconsistent. They come several times a day to replace towels and bathrobes but never picked up used champagne glasses and an empty bottle during our 2 night stay. The staff at the front desk weren’t overly welcoming nor friendly which would have added an easy, special touch to anyone’s stay. There is no bellboy to help with luggage. We had a special deal when we booked for a free upgrade and 10% off dinner at the restaurant. We had to be insistent to get the upgrade (it wasn’t automatic) and at checkout we forgot about the 10% discount and they certainly didn’t remind us of it before we left. These two examples are just not indicative of a true 5* experience. If they make a special offer, then it should be given without the customer always reminding them of what the conditions are. Anyway, the baths are phenomenal at both the Nuovi and Vecchi and despite the shortcomings of an expected 5* hotel, we would definitely return. If it were rated only 4 stars, there would be little to complain about, so forget the star rating and just enjoy the unique atmosphere of days gone by.
Stayed for just one night at the end of a few days skiing in Bormio and wish it could have been longer. The hotel is absolutely stunning inside and out, rooms beautiful and comfortable and spacious. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast is served in a beautiful room and the food was all very delicious,
Undoubtedly the best bits of the hotel is the wonderful views and the spa. We spent hours wandering around all the various rooms and had a very relaxing time. Would highly recommend this hotel after a tough week on the slopes!
Fantastic place, good service at the restaurant.
However, rather rude receptionist (Angela) who complained for basic services -ie: there was a mix up in the bill, easy to fix, but the receptionist was very aggressive, even doubting our claims, which I found unacceptable (eg: here is your voucher?
I would strongly suggest to put professional and courteous personnel at the reception
We came to visit the termes and we were not allowed since we had a kid 7 years old with us. We were told that guest are complaining that the kids are noisy. At the same time we saw kids inside - kids who live in hotel are allowed. So, kids from hotel are not noisy and kids from outside are noisy? I see that this is discrimination.
I found this hotel while researching two nights of lodging in Bormio. I was there to bicycle the famous Stelvio Pass. For an American I found this to be very unique and one of the most unusual travel experiences I have experienced. This is a spectacular grand old hotel that is beautiful as the website shows. The guest rooms have an inner and outer door- they are very quiet and elegant. The guests are given robes to wear from their rooms to the spa area and back. The vibe here is quiet relaxation. The spa aspect is very European and bewildering at first. You just cannot experience anything like this in the US. The indoor and outdoor spas or baths are natural and the air is permeated with the unique and pleasant aroma of the mineral water. Please read other reviews also as I had a little trouble "wrapping my head around" this place. I got impression we were the only Americans there.
