The Ganthaler family have been running the Hotel Muchele in South Tyrol, not far from the spa town of Merano, for three generations now. Over the years they have kept on developing it, making it into the magical retreat that it is today. This modern spa hotel offers tastefully furnished rooms in different categories: from simple single rooms to the exclusive garden loggia. All rooms feature contemporary amenities with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Depending on the category, guests can also enjoy a balcony and Raindance shower or even a rooftop terrace and hot-spring whirlpool in the suites. Some of the garden loggias have direct access to the large, heated outdoor pool (21 meters), which is connected to the indoor pool via a lock. Spa hotel: Range of saunas & romantic Spa Suite
Feeling good made easy - the casual yet welcoming atmosphere is what makes this place so special. A large part of this is down to the Ganthalers themselves, as well as their excellent team of staff, but the extensive spa facilities take care of the rest. In the lovingly designed sauna lounge you can just close your eyes and relax in the steam room with panoramic-view windows, the Finnish sauna or the herbal sauna. In the spa area you can then indulge in Ayurvedic massages and facials. There are special offers for men too! If you’re planning a romantic weekend, then book the Private Spa Suite with Jacuzzi, Finnish sauna and relaxation bed. Sports hotel: Mountain hiking and climbing trails, tennis, golf and more …
Hikers will love the location of the Hotel Muchele: in the middle of a network of panoramic-view paths and gentle mountain routes, trekking trails and some more adventurous mountain routes, as well as comfortable woodland, meadow and forest paths. Golfers get discounts at the two nearby golf clubs and tennis fans can smash a few aces on the hotel’s own court. Needless to say, you can also find some of the best cycling conditions in the picturesque Merano region. If the weather is bad then you can retreat to the hotel’s fitness studio. In summer there are courses for Pilates and water aerobics amongst other things. Food & drink: House-roasted coffee & multi-course menu with local specialties
Breakfast is one of the absolute highlights of a visit to the Hotel Muchele. Here you can sample homemade jams from the Martello valley, different honeys from Marlin’s organic farm and juicy meats from Gargazon. And the coffee? It’s roasted in the hotel itself! When the weather is nice you can enjoy it all out on the sun terrace. In the evening, the kitchen’s full board dinner – ’Muchele Diner’ - has five to six courses. Alternatively, you can pick from the menu in the small a la carte restaurant. A lot of emphasis is placed on the best quality, local ingredients. On request the kitchen will also prepare lactose and gluten free meals. Sport & leisure: Pretty villages & historic buildings
As well as the extensive range of sports options, the Hotel Muchele still has more to offer. The pretty spa town of Merano with its promenades and shopping arcades is just 5km away. The surrounding area is dotted with small, pretty villages, sprawling fruit plantations and historic buildings like the sacred structures and fortresses in Lana. Location: 5km from Merano
The Hotel Muchele is situated in the small town of Postal in the region of Merano in South Tyrol, 5m from the spa town of Merano itself. This quiet town is framed by meadows and woodland as well as sprawling fruit plantations. Lana is around 3km away.
