With a view of the Cinque Torri and one of the most beautiful spas with swimming pool in Cortina, Lajadira boutique hotel offers the best of international hospitality, perfectly combining tradition, comfort and design.

Completely renovated, Lajadira reveals in its name, which derives from the myth of a Nordic Princess, the protagonist of ancient legends of the Dolomites, its promise of hospitality.
Andrey Toporov has in fact taken over this historic hotel, innovating it, year after year, to offer its customers, just like in a fairy tale, the best of international hospitality, a “home away from home” in the heart of the beautiful Valle d’Ampezzo.

The hotel stands out, in fact, in the panorama of 4-star structures in the Ampezzo area, for a brand new wellness area of over 300 square meters with panoramic swimming pool, garden and solarium, where in summer you can sunbathe, 2 saunas, Turkish bath, emotional showers and relaxation area with herbal tea bar.
Furthermore, thanks to the collaboration with the [comfort zone] brand, founded in Parma in 1983 by the Bollati family, which also takes care of the courtesy line of the structure, it is possible to book any type of treatment, face&body, and massages.

The 33 rooms are each furnished in a different style, from the more classic ones with tufted bed and wallpaper to the designer suites with natural brushed larch wood paneling, marble bathrooms and living room with traditional stube. Ask for those with a view of the Cinque Torri peaks: in the morning it is truly a unique emotion to wake up and have a coffee on the private terrace while admiring the sun that slowly illuminates the valley.
