In the autumn 2004 the Gardena became a member of the prestigious international association Relais & Châteaux. For us this is a real honour, as well as an acknowledgement of our decade-long commitment to provide our guests with an exacting service.

The Relais & Châteaux philosophy, focused on the art of living and on the world-famous "5 Cs" — courtesy, charm, character, calm and (excellent) cuisine — is inspired by the same guiding principles as ours.

“Excellence is always the result of passion.”

As a member of Relais & Châteaux, we would like to share our passion for the unique and extraordinary with our guests.

"All around the world,

Established over half a century ago, the Relais & Châteaux association brings together some of the world’s finest hotels and restaurants with a very high standard of quality and with the aim of offering their guests a truly unforgettable stay in a unique setting.

From the vineyards in the Napa Valley to the beaches of Bali, from fields of lavender in Provence to the natural reserves of South Africa, Relais & Châteaux members are unforgettable stops on some of the most fascinating routes to the discovery of the world’s most beautiful regions.
Our philosophy: always to offer the best
Hospitality is a family tradition at the Gardena Grödnerhof

The history of the Gardena began in 1923, when Antonio and Anna Demetz, the grandparents of the present owner Hugo Bernardi, bought a private home and converted it into a hotel. Constant expansions and improvements made the Gardena one of the valley's leading establishments. In 1988, under the guidance of Annamaria Demetz Bernardi, the Gardena Hotel received a four-star rating. In 2000 her son Hugo and his wife Cinzia became the new hotel owners. In the spring of 2001, the existing building was demolished and completely rebuilt in a record time of nine months.

In December 2003 the Gardena became the first five-star hotel in Ortisei and in the Autumn of 2004 it became a member of Relais & Châteaux, the prestigious international association of over 580 charming hotels and gourmet restaurants in more than 60 countries.

HISTORY & TRADITION Times change and another chapter is added to the history book

Innovation is matched by changes and memories bring the past back to life. During its 100-year history, the Gardena has always focused on the importance of the traditional values of hospitality, while constantly keeping pace with the times: from the pioneering insight of its founder to the thorough reconstruction in 2001, our main objective has been and continues to be the well-being of our guests. Real tradition continues despite changing times and there's no better proof than the Gardena.
