Luxury with a sense of tradition - The Alpina Gsaat, Bernese Oberland
A new five-star hotel opened in the Bernese Oberland in December 2012: the Alpina Gstaad is regarded as a new icon for Gstaad's hotel industry, combining Swiss tradition with sophisticated luxury. The hotel's architecture makes use of materials and craftsmanship typical of the mountain region. The façade is crafted from pine and hand-carved alpine stone, whilst four corner towers are the dominant feature of the building. HBA architects from London designed the 56 rooms and suites, providing a contemporary interpretation of the traditional alpine chalet style. In the spacious bathrooms, Happy D. bidets and toilets offer an appropriately high level of comfort. The 2,000 m² wellness facility provides relaxation after a day hiking in the Alps.
