Hotel Ambet is situated at an altitude of 1400 metres in the South Tyrolean village of Meransen at the entrance to the Val Pusteria. The building may be new, but the hotel is still a building steeped in tradition. 50 years ago, the Rieder family opened a guesthouse in the same location, which has been replaced with a new building by the youngest generation. Only the indoor swimming pool and the wellness area of the old guesthouse have remained, both of which have also been thoroughly renovated and adapted to suit the style of the new hotel.
The new building is adorned with a wooden frame that surrounds the upper floors and adds a light touch to the structure. In addition, the irregularly placed window openings and balconies over the corners break up the façade. Natural materials can be found both inside and outside. Indeed, architecture and interior design blend beautifully: the plaster of the external façade can also be found inside on the two lower floors. The rooms and public areas are predominantly built of oak wood and characterised by muted natural colors. The natural alpine landscape is omnipresent through the large panoramic windows – even the sauna offers wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. On the 500 square metre roof terrace with its 360-degree panorama, the sky feels close enough to touch.
