    The Alpina Gstaad has recently opened its doors to guests for the first time. A 300 million Swiss Francs luxury development, this new addition to the picturesque region of Saanenland in the Bernese Alps has been four years in the making, and is the first newly built luxury hotel in Gstaad in 100 years. Set in a prestigious hilltop location in Oberbort, just five minutes from the centre of the exclusive village of Gstaad, the hotel includes a Six Senses Spa and the first Western European outpost of celebrated Japanese restaurant MEGU. The Alpina Gstaad features 56 spacious rooms and suites, impeccably decorated with a combination of modern design and traditional Swiss elements, designed by the London office of “Hirsch Bedner Associates”. The exterior takes its inspiration from typical Swiss architecture, with its four towers, dormers and wooden balconies.

    In addition to the Six Senses Spa and MEGU restaurant, the hotel also features a wine tasting room, cigar room, private cinema and two further restaurants offering traditional Swiss or modern European menus. The Six Senses Spa boasts both indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness centre, various treatment rooms for both individuals and couples, and a range of holistic treatments and rejuvenation programmes.
