The Alpina Gstaad makes for a break full of memories and Swiss sophistication. The hotel is a global platform for creativity and cultural innovation. We experienced breathtaking surroundings and were inspired by engaging visual arts and architecture in a relaxed, eclectic and peaceful atmosphere.
1 - The Panorama Suite (400 m²) is The Alpina Gstaad’s top suite, a two-floor, three-bedroom duplex, located on the top floor, with striking views over the surrounding mountainscape and an outdoor jacuzzi. The large living area with a wood-burning fireplace in the salon includes a fully equipped kitchen and a dining table for eight guests. The upper floor features a private wellness cocoon with spa room, hammam, sauna, and gym.
“Megu was voted the best Asian restaurant in Switzerland by Gault Millau in 2018”
2 - Since its inception, The Alpina Gstaad has been ahead of the curve in ecological awareness. Indigenous wood and stone, local craftsmen and recycled raw material were used in the property’s construction. The Alpina Honey is produced on the property grounds, allowing hotel guests to gain insight into the fascinating world of bees with local beekeeper Stefan Neuhaus.
“Rooms and suites are spacious,
all with private terraces and spectacular views of the Bernese Alps and the Saanenland.”
3 - The only Six Senses Spa in Switzerland is inspired by Asian wellness traditions that draw upon the energy of the Alps and the Bernese Oberland’s peaks and pastures.
“The heated outdoor pool is set in luscious grounds designed by acclaimed landscape architect Jean Mus.”
As well as being surrounded by beautiful Alpine mountains, The Alpina Gstaad has one of the most stunning outdoor panorama pools in Switzerland. In addition to winter, it’s perfect for a summer break. The hotel values a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, making you feel at home. An exceptional setting for all those yearning for a private hideaway.
