Feeling the call of the mountains? Then Huus Gstaad is the place for you.
Set in the secluded Alpine village of Gstaad, a destination known for its winter sports and extraordinary landscape, the mountain refuge has a focus on both adventure and luxury, making it the ideal destination for an active escape.
With the chalet design, Johansen has maintained the structural integrity of the original site, keeping the classic Alpine style while making extensive interior renovations. Walls of Huus Gstaad have been removed and windows enlarged ensuring that every room enjoys expansive views over the surrounding mountains.
Inside, the local influence is felt in the use of traditional patterns, updated with contemporary materials and styles. Bedrooms blend comfort and cosiness, while the heart of the hotel is The Livingroom – a 400 sq m space encompassing a lounge, a bar, an extensive library, and a terrace. Come just for the bar – it boasts the highest bottle wall in the region.
Huus Gstaad guests can step out of the door onto 250km of ski slopes and trails, as well as enjoying unparalleled hiking, climbing and river rafting.
For the less adventurous, there is plenty to explore inside Huus Gstaad – which can be booked via Design Hotels – with four restaurants overseen by Guiseppe Colella and a three-storey spa including panoramic swimming pool and herbal steam bath, offering the ultimate in gourmet relaxation.
