Elegance and Sustainability in the Heart of the Dolomites

Grand Opening of Villa Melì

Predazzo, December 15, 2023 – After years of meticulous planning and dedication, Carmela Ricci, along with her family and collaborators, is delighted to announce the official opening of Villa Melì, a jewel of elegance and sustainability nestled in the picturesque surroundings of Val di Fiemme, in the heart of the Dolomites.

The Journey to the Dream

The Villa Melì project began in 2019 when Carmela Ricci and her family, seasoned experts in hotel management, decided to bring their dream to life – owning a hotel. Initially acquiring a modest two-star property with 20 rooms, their ambition was to transform it completely. However, challenges posed by the pandemic forced a pause in their plans. Finally, in 2022, overcoming bureaucratic hurdles, they elevated the modest structure into a sophisticated 3*** Superior Hotel.

Distinctive Features of the Hotel

Luxurious Rooms: The hotel boasts 24 rooms, divided into categories such as comfort, superior, junior suite, and suite. Each room is designed to provide maximum comfort and elegance.

Wellness Area: With a spacious wellness area both indoors and outdoors, guests can enjoy amenities such as a sauna, steam bath, relaxation area, and a whirlpool. An oasis of tranquility and rejuvenation.

Culinary Experience: Villa Melì’s restaurant offers a unique culinary art, with experienced chefs presenting a fusion of traditional and innovative cuisine, using fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

Enchanting Location: Nestled in the picturesque town of Predazzo, in Val di Fiemme. The hotel is in close proximity to the Latemar ski resorts, offering an ideal base to explore the surrounding natural wonders.

Sustainability Commitment: Villa Melì embraces sustainability through the use of recycled wood and iron for renovations, connecting to Bio Energy for clean, local thermal energy, and sourcing all biomass for the Predazzo district’s heating plant locally.

Multi-ethnic staff: Villa Melì owners emphasize the importance of a diverse and inclusive workforce, considering it a priority.

The Official Opening

The official inauguration of Villa Melì takes place on December 15, 2023, with an exclusive event welcoming guests, business partners, and members of the local community. It is an opportunity to celebrate years of commitment and dedication, as well as to introduce guests to the unique and refined experience that the hotel offers.

The guest of honor at the opening will be the esteemed Milanese contemporary art critic, Marco Eugenio Di Giandomenico. He will engage the audience with an insightful talk on the intersection of Art & Hospitality.
