“We have been travelling as a family to Gstaad to ski for years so you can imagine my excitement when I discovered that a new hotel was to open - the first in a century! I had to try it out to see if it lived up to the resort’s reputation... it does. The look is Alpine, with salvaged wood and stone on the exterior and cosy, comfy fabrics in the timber-clad interiors. Loved the private balconies for relaxing post-ski and admiring the view - and really loved the huge Six Senses spa.

Exploring the newer side of Gstaad life. Great location for skiing, hiking, restaurants etc.
Anyone. The staff are very welcoming.
Watching the sunset from the heated outdoor pool.
Best time to go
Gstaad is a ski resort, so if you want the snow and the scene that goes with it, you need to visit in-season. However, the mountains are also beautiful - and much quieter - during summer.
Rooms have views of either the village or the mountains - specify when booking if you have a preference. Gstaad is a ten minute walk away but the hotel offers a complimentary car service.
$650 and up, season depending.
