The very definition of Alpine chic – a glorious five-star architectural masterpiece accessed by a spectacular tunnel ending in a marble-lined cavern where limousines park around a soaring Christmas tree. Inside, modern alpine luxury blends with touches of local tradition and character; deluxe rooms and suites feature wood carvings, painted period furniture and private terraces overlooking either Schönried or the majestic Diablerets mountains and Gstaad village. At the top of the hotel, the Panorama suite offers three-bedroomed splendour with a grand staircase and private spa. Epicureans flock to the hotel’s three much-accoladed restaurants, overseen by Michelin-starred chef Martin Göschel. Choose Alpine classics in the Swiss Stübli; innovative Japanese food in MEGU; or sample the unique tasting menu in Sommet to the accompaniment of wine selections from hundreds of rare vintages. Unwind in the Six Senses Spa with Jacuzzis and 25m indoor pool, or take a dip in the heated outdoor garden pool. Children have their own ‘salty’ play area within the spa as well as pool with mini water slide. The Kids’ Club is complimentary for children over 3 years. Just a few minutes away by courtesy shuttle lies Gstaad village and ski lifts.
