The Gstaad ski resorts located in the Gstaad Saanenland region which is in Bernese Oberland. This is the East side of Lake Geneva. As I have spent most of my life in Geneva, I always make a trip to Gstaad for skiing. It’s a well known ski resort for jet setter’s and many Hollywood stars have Chalets here. Most of the jet setter’s come to the Palace Hotel and party at GreenGo. The best memories from my school years are from here during the winter, it was the place to be. The Park Hotel is also beautiful but is more calm and relaxing.
Two years ago a new hotel opened…The Alpina Gstaad Hotel. It’s a luxury boutique hotel that has only 56 rooms and suites which uniquely embody the Swiss style. The service is amazing and the rooms are beautiful which make you feel like you are at home. There is a spa with salt room therapy and outdoor and indoor swimming pools. During the ski season you are able to book the extreme winter package. This includes Heli-skiing with an experienced local guide and a glacier adventure with a picnic. You are able to book treatments any time of the year even if you are not skiing. There is an abundance of specials treatments at Alpina such as the detox, anti-aging and goodnight retreat.
The restaurants are fabulous! The Japanese restaurant Megu and gastronomic restaurant Sommet are two of my favorites. Alpina lounge and bar is a great place for drinks and for cigar lovers there is a cigar lounge. The Swiss Stubli restaurant has an alpine spirit and is a perfect place to enjoy traditional Swiss fare such a raclette or fondue. A detox delight menu can also be found at the Alpina Gstaad for improving your health and well-being.
Basically you have everything in one place. One more aspect that I love is you can easily bring the kids; there are plenty of activities for them. This is also a great romantic getaway for you and your honey. On this trip there was no snow for me…but I still enjoyed the Alpine Air and great shopping choices.
