The Alpina Gstaad

Alpinastrasse 23, 3780 Gstaad, Switzerland

Price from USD 1,000

“Alpine chalet chic”

The Alpina is the first new-build, five-star luxury hotel to rise in Gstaad in the last century – and we’re more than content to be pampered here for the next 100 years. Nothing overtly showy, just quiet luxury (much like the town itself) with subtly grand proportions. Outside, the classic Swiss Alps façade sits perfectly well with the stunning locale, while chic interiors kitted out with swish technological comforts sit perfectly well with the modern traveler’s needs. The private art collection showpieces nonchalantly scattered around the hotel are pretty impressive, but arguably more so, the views down through the postcard-perfect valley and snowcapped peaks. Definitely most impressive of all is the level of care, which is well beyond expectations.

Best time to visit : July to September and December to March

What we love

  • The on-site Six Senses Spa with its gorgeous pools is reason enough to visit
  • On-demand shuttles to town are very useful
  • Can’t decide between the Michelin-starred Sommet and the Gault Millau 15-pointed Megu? That’s because you really must experience both
  • Beautiful during summer, but the town, Alpine scenery is nothing short of magical in winter as you sit by the in-suite fireplace

Glacier 3000
Glacier 3000
Situated between Gstaad and Diablerets, only a 15 minutes’ drive from The Alpina Gstaad, Glacier 3000 is a must visit in summer or winter. Go there early in the morning, do the Bridge Walk to soak in the amazing views and followed by some skiing on the glacier (all year round) or the beautiful Glacier Walk. Not to miss, a well deserved cold local beer in the Refuge restaurant.
Valley of Lauenen
Valley of Lauenen

This idyllic location is no longer a secret but still a very discreet place to relax and reconnect with Nature. In summer beautiful to hike around the lake all the way to the waterfalls or to jump and soak in the lake early morning/evening. In winter this is my to go place for cross country skiing and recharge batteries. The prestine forest and sound of my skis gliding through the snow is payless.

Hot Air Balloon

The classic of all classic and the Gstaad Celebrities place to be. This used to be the only restaurant in the valley and the place to be for the farmers who then started mixing up with the Gstaad Elite that frequented there. It is now a place not to be missed and where everyone passes by every night. Whether it is for a drink at the bar or for an Italian Dinner.
