Exceptional autumnal interiors and an exquisite Alpine and North Italian cuisine round off the respite from cares and worries, which are left behind far below. An exclusive refuge to indulge, relax and fully detach to find tranquility, serenity and inner peace.

    Rooms & Suites

    True to Matteo Thun’s ecologically friendly approach to design, vigilius mountain resort is built with conservation firmly rooted in its founding ethos. Internally heated stone partitions in the 41 rooms warm the interiors in the most efficient and pleasant way possible. A unique sensory experience is created by the use of naturally scented larch wood throughout: Floors are covered in the roughly patterned wood, with a fine grain used for paneling and finishes, and a fluted look for the doors. All guestrooms face outside, with floor-to-ceiling windows leading out to generous balconies.

    Architecture

    Matteo Thun

    Employing "organic architecture" that seamlessly blends into its surroundings, Milan-based architect Matteo Thun used wood and glass in a style that aims to shrink the difference between architecture and nature to a near imperceptible nuance. The result is a 41-room resort that places an intimate dialogue between man and nature above all else in its design. True to Studio Thun’s ecologically friendly approach, energy and nature conservation are consequently executed: as a grass-covered roof, the use of natural larch wood throughout, and internally heated clay walls in each room that warm the interiors in the most efficient and pleasant way possible. Like a tree that has fallen in the forest, Vigilius Mountain Resort combines old substance with fresh growth, generating new internal life and a commitment to renewal.

    Interior Design

    Essential Values

    Clear design, warm colors, and natural materials as a link to South Tyrolean history are employed throughout to achieve a simplicity that frees the mind and opens the senses. All guestrooms face either east or west, but always to the outside. Not even a single piece of art on the walls distracts your personal dialogue with nature.

    Ulrich Ladurner and Matteo Thun

    "Being a guest at Vigilius is more than just spending a few beautiful days: it encompasses gaining new experiences and discovering new values," says German proprietor Ulrich Ladurner. Together with architect Matteo Thun, Ladurner had the courage to replace a dilapidated mountain hotel with an aesthetically challenging design property, nestled harmoniously in the midst of Mount Vigiljoch in South Tyrol. Nature sets the tone at Vigilius, determining the tact of daily life and facilitating easy reflection and rediscovery of oneself. Matteo Thun’s ability to find the perfect transition from the traditional to the modern simply reinforces the feeling that Vigilius is a perfectly organic extension of the ancient mountain on which it is perched. In the eyes of Ladurner, his resort is as natural, simple and spontaneous as the beauty that surrounds it.

    Finding Infinity

    At One With the Mountain

    In the mountainous, Germanic part of northern Italy known as South Tyrol, vigilius mountain resort was built with the goal of sustaining, not destroying, this glorious wooded environment. Thanks to hydroelectricity, a biomass power plant, and an aggressive energy-saving philosophy, it is exceeding all of its hopes.
