Little secrets to take home
From choice of material to bed position, everything is assessed in order to make the holiday as healthy as possible for the guests. It is an example of excellence which diffuses a culture, implements savings and offers pleasant holidays, with an idea or two to make city living healthier. With optimum comfort and respect for the environment, Biohotel Hermitage has been a winning bet for over six years, and is regarded as one of the top 15 hotels in the entire Alpine arc, in a survey by Elaborazioni Trademark Italia based on the area’s main guides: Michelin, GamberoRosso, Touring Club and l’Espresso.
Before beginning the ecological shift of restructuring the hotel, which took place in early 2000, the Maffei household could only ask themselves: “If the provision of comfort costs more, will there be customers willing to pay higher prices? Will the emphasis on and proposal of a natural holiday and a building constructed in accordance with the standards of bio-architecture be appreciated?” The answers arrived through a careful analysis whichweighed up the variables and synthesized that the amplification of the hotel into an ecological capacity would cost 20% more than a traditional hotel, but with a saving of double on maintenance costs, energy costs and water usage. These variables, and the study of the characteristic features of an ecological building, were developed by an examination paper entitled “Wellbeing at Altitude” presented in May 1996, by Barbara Maffei to the Academy of Commerce and Tourism of Trento, which concerned the restructuring of her family’s hotel in a biological capacity. “Then, it was just a dream,” says Barbara, “in which my family believed, and managed to transform into reality a few years later in 1999”.
