If you’re a fan of swimming in glass bottomed pools, you’ll want to save your pennies for a trip to Italy. The newly renovated Hotel Hubertus is a skiing and hiking resort nestled in the Dolomites in Valdora Bozen. The hotel has been remodeled, redesigned and expanded.
Being in the mountains, the hotel is already nearly 5,000 feet above sea level, but that didn’t stop the designers from making the hotel’s pool even more attractive to those who like a view from above. The new pool combines the concept of an infinity pool with that of a cantilevered pool, to great effect. Swimmers get great views in all directions, including down, thanks to the glass-bottomed tank.
The new pool is more than 80 feet long, and 55 of those feed overhang the Dolomite cliffs. The pool is blended artfully into the surrounding terrain; its sides are faced with anthracite-colored stone. The “infinity” pool gives swimmers the impression that the pool water vanishes into the nothingness at the visible edge of the tank.
The pool appears to be supported by native larch trees. In reality, larch tree trunks were debarked and installed beneath the pool in an aesthetically pleasing pattern. Larch trees are also used extensively inside the renovated hotel’s common areas.
The renovation of the lodge included the addition of more than a dozen new suites, and takes every advantage of the surrounding environment, which happens to be a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site. In addition to the cantilevered pool, the property has five other pools – both indoor and outdoor – that are open to guests. Skiing and golf courses are also locally available.
