10 Reasons Why Alpen Palace Resort & Spa is Where You Need to be in 2016Like0

Have you ever spent all night pinterest-ing the places you dreamed of visiting one day? And did the ‘one day’ seemed far away? It did for me at least but I was determined to go through all of them one by one like a domino effect without stopping and having me, this time, being in the photo and, hanging it on my living room wall.

You don’t get to hear of South Tyrol much, at least where I’m from. But you can read here all about it. But it’s easy to convince someone on traveling there if you are into exclusivity, nature and enjoy the peace and simple life. But, like all other beautiful places, you have a number of choices of places to stay at. I have to be honest when I say that I didn’t google much on places to stay in South Tyrol, I just accepted Colin’s invitation to stay at Alpen Palace Deluxe Suite when he found out I was going to be there with my family for 5 days.

It’s exactly how you would picture it to be. Coming out of a two piece middle fold magazine yet very traditional and incredibly well managed.

The 5 star hotel is in the Ahrntal Valley, the valley of the three-thousand metre mountains, a paradise for activities and a region of culture, is located in the northern part of South Tyrol – right where the south side of the Zillertal Alps meets the foothills of the Dolomites, where the adventure mountains of the region are inspiring, entertaining events characterize the Alpine year and a wide variety of activities lure you out into the fresh air.

I’ve never seen anything like it. I considered myself well traveled, but the world keeps surprising me over and over again.

Here are the 10 reasons why Alpen Palace Resort & Spa is where you need to be in 2016

With Love,

Travel Junkie Diary


  1. For many years the Ahrntal Valley has been a real paradise for climbers and paragliders, during which the landscape can be discovered from a completely different perspective. Things get adventurous during rafting too, and during a guided riding excursion in the superb natural surroundings.
  2. In winter the Klausberg & Speikboden and the Kronplatz inspire ski fans, families and free-stylers. You can organize with the hotel magical winter hikes, revitalizing cross-country tours and tobogganing you get to experience up close the magic of this deep snow-covered winter wonderland during your holiday in the Ahrntal Valley.
  3. All Bedrooms have Balconies/Terraces, Boutique, Country, Garden, Mountain.
  4. The SPA includes outdoor pool and Jacuzzi and many kinds of sauna and treatments inside!
  5. Alpen Palace Deluxe Suite Hotel was awarded the best spa and wellness hotel, so it’s the best place to book your spa retreat!
  6. Your complimentary pick up from the train station is always welcomed with a picnic basket with fruits, champagne and snacks
  7. The kitchen and cuisine is one of the best parts! Every evening, the hotel prepares a 7 course menu and on some evenings, they have a BBQ outdoor! South Tyrol is the foodie capital of Italy and home of the world’s best wines!
  8. You can hike and ski in the morning and swim and tan by noon at the hotel!
  9. A year round destination, the hotel hosts excursions daily…Snow, sun or rain! On days we took a bicycle from the hotel and toured around South Tyrol and the lakes, other days we went hiking.
  10. If you are ever looking for a magic land or a place you think never existed…this is it.  Family vacation or couples retreat!

  • Back in the desert 🐫 and I think summer just kicked in 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I woke up right here on my back way from Voss to Oslo. 350 metres above Oslo city and right in Nordmarka forest🌳
  • I could be staring at the same mountains that loomed over passing Vikings and I’m in love... Wouldn’t you be?
  • From Oslo, I took the NSB train to Myrdal which is a 5 hour journey, then boarded the Flåm Railway, named by @natgeotravel one of the most beautiful train journey in Europe taking you through west Norway’s most beautiful scenery. Here we stopped for 10 minutes to step out of the railway for pictures. Can you see Chloè by the window too? ☺️
  • The sun doesn’t rise till around 9am, so it gave me a lot of time to sleep in. Flåm is a small village in southwestern Norway, in an area known for its fjords. It sits at the end of Aurlandsfjord. It’s peaceful, its historical, it’s quiet and it’s not a place you will find all over social media. I found these little red cabins while walking around the small village trying not to slip on the ice that covers the road! I did though, I slipped, laughed got bruised and luckily my camera didn’t fall into the water... but it was so close!
  • I’ve found Kattegat ♥️
  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I never needed to escape from. This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I was thinking of a caption that can relate to what I was thinking... but the truth is, simple... I was thinking of absolutely nothing at all... just the fact that I was waking up in the middle of a frozen sea. ♥️
  • Gelato for breakfast and it’s melting!! An obvious one ofcourse 😊 That was my next hunt for ‘inspiration in finding a little bit of Italy in the UAE’  project with @theitalianwayuae How many times a day would you have Gelato in Italy? For me, it was around 4-5!! #TheItalianWay
