To create places of our dreams


To become the Italian reference brand in the international market of luxury wellness holidays through the creation of a collection of eco-resorts according to the Italian style and living and the new Lefay concept of luxury.

Our History

Lefay Resorts & Residences was born from the vision of the entrepreneurial couple Domenico Alcide and Liliana Leali in 2006, after the success of the Air Dolomiti, founded in 1989 and sold to Lufthansa in 2003. The first jewel in the Lefay Collection, Lefay Resort & SPA Lago di Garda opened in 2008 in Gargnano and won more than 100 international awards in 14 years, ranking as one of the world’s top SPA Destinations. Opened in the ski area of Madonna di Campiglio in 2019, Lefay Resort & SPA Dolomiti has been acknowledged in a short time with more than 19 international awards. It marked the Group’s entry into the ‘Serviced Branded Residences’ segment, the first example within a Spa Destination in Italy. Consistent with the values of well-being and sustainability, both Resorts are totally carbon neutral and certified by the world’s most reputable organisations. In 2022, the Group announced its first Resort in management contract abroad, in Crans-Montana, Switzerland. Among future projects, there is also the completion of the Italian portfolio of three owned properties, with a third Resort located in Tuscany, in Montalcino; construction works will start in the near future.


New Luxury

We believe that the concept of luxury is being redefined and is becoming more and more focused on aspects such as space, nature, silence, time for oneself, discrete service but still with great attention to detail.

Global Wellbeing

Sustainability means developing a profitable business model
by creating something worthwhile, and that means we take our social and environmental responsibilities very seriously.


The real key to our success is the excellence of our Staff, whose satisfaction for us must be as strategic as the satisfaction of our Guests.


We offer a slice of contemporary Italian style, taste and elegance. Everything from the interior design, the Mediterranean cuisine, the friendly service and the wellness offering to the attention to detail are delivered in an authentic and traditional Italian way.
