NEW ALPINE DETOX IN THE DOLOMITES
Lefay Resort & SPA Dolomiti, the award-winning spa resort in the Italian Dolomites, is offering the perfect antidote to the difficult year experienced by many in 2020. The resort has introduced a new five-day alpine detox programme to help the body eliminate toxins accumulated during periods of stress and counteract bad eating habits.
The resort, which is located in the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Italian Dolomites in the ski area of Madonna di Campiglio, has a 5,000 sqm Lefay SPA, making it one of the largest spas in the entire Alpine region.
Based on Lefay’s holistic wellness method combining Classical Chinese Medicine with modern Western techniques, the programme will improve the function of the organs responsible for toxin elimination and help turn back the body’s biological clock. Treatments include detoxifying energy massages, reflexology, a 30 minute body scrub with chestnut flower, alpine salt and alpine butter, a 75 minute facial, an aroma-hydrotherapy session with essential oils and a flotation session in the salt-water lake during which the body absorbs the trace elements and minerals from the alpine salt dissolved in the water, providing a draining, detoxifying and relaxing effect.
For a truly restorative experience, the programme can be combined with a choice of new alpine experiences offered by the resort in the Adamello Brenta National Park. “Even before Covid-19, more and more academic studies were highlighting the benefits of prescribing a connection with nature and the great outdoors. Mental states of anxiety and depression are all proven to benefit from connecting to nature and outdoor activities,” said Dr Carlo Barbieri, President of the Lefay SPA Method Scientific Committee.
If skiing is not available due to Covid-19 restrictions, guests can hike along unexplored trails in the forest with a guide stopping at a mountain hut for lunch, ride horses in the snow, try dog sledding, snow-shoeing or even ski-mountaineering.
The five night programme costs Euros 1,990 per person including all treatments and meals. www.lefayresorts.com. The Alpine experiences are at an additional cost.

Lefay Resorts was, in 2006, the vision of Domenico Alcide and Liliana Leali, founders of Air Dolomiti regional airline, which was sold to Lufthansa in March 2003. The new group was founded with the aim of becoming the Italian reference brand for luxury wellness holidays in the international market through the creation of a collection of Italian style eco-resorts. The multi-award winning Lefay Resort & SPA Lago di Garda has been leading the way in sustainable tourism in the luxury arena in Italy.
With the launch of Lefay Resort & SPA Dolomiti in August 2019, the brand confirmed its expansion strategy, which envisages, on the one hand, the completion of the hospitality properties portfolio in Italy (the third is already planned for Tuscany) and, on the other, the expansion into Central Europe in cooperation with selected partners who share the same values, through management or lease contracts.
