The Luxury Collection has unveiled its eighth Italian property with the relaunch of the iconic Cristallo Resort and Spa in Cortina.
The Luxury Collection, part of Marriott International, has added Cristallo, a historic hotel located in the Italian town of Cortina d’Ampezzo, to its portfolio of upscale destinations. The property marks the brand’s entry into said locale and first ski resort worldwide.
Located in the country’s north eastern region, while nestled within the Dolomites mountain range, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the dual-season hospitality destination will reopen after the redesign of the establishment’s rooms, suites, and lobby concludes.
A second phase of renovation will be complete by December, when the venue ushers in its first ski season as part of The Luxury Collection. With the relaunch, the group expands to eight hotels in Italy—reinforcing the chain’s commitment to growing its European presence.
With four restaurants on site, travellers will be treated to a selection of diverse local recipes and choice offerings. Meanwhile, Cristallo’s 74 guestrooms, 20 suites, and two presidential suites complete its heritage with delicate character, complex design, and quality amenities.
The resort runs a golf course in partnership with Golf Club Cortina, where guests can compete on the nine-hole greens framed by the Dolomites. A nearby alpine-style clubhouse affords an inviting setting for conversation over drinks or a meal, while only a short drive away.
“The iconic Cristallo is a perfect fit as it is truly a property that defines its destination. Italy is a key market and the hotel marks a global milestone for the brand, being our first ski resort worldwide,” said Mitzi Gaskin, Global Brand Leader for The Luxury Collection and JW Marriott.
