History & Tradition

Times change and another chapter is added to the history book: from a small inn to a 5 star Wellness Hotel in Ortisei, in the Dolomites

Innovation is matched by changes and memories bring the past back to life. During its 90-year history, the Gardena has always focused on the importance of the traditional values of hospitality, while keeping pace with if not revolutionising the times: from the pioneering insight of its founder to the courageous reconstruction in 2001, our main objective has been and continues to be the well-being of our guests.

Real tradition is constantly changing: and there's no better proof than the Gardena!

A little bit of history

The history of the Gardena began in 1923, when Antonio and Anna Demetz, the grandparents of the hotel's 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 hotel's new owners. In the spring of 2001 the existing building was demolished and completely rebuilt in the record time of 9 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 520 charming hotels and gourmet restaurants in more than 60 countries.


"All around the world, unique in the world“

The Relais & Châteaux association, founded in France in 1954, for quite some time has and continues to be the reference for excellence for the hotel and restaurant sector.

All member hotels and restaurants share the cult of the Art of Living and each of them has distinctive characteristics that make them unique and one of a kind.

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 just as unforgettable stops on some of the most fascinating routes for discovering the world’s most beautiful regions.

Relais & Château’s motto puts the focus on this constant quest for beauty and excellence:
