Huus Gstaad

Craftmanship and a contemporary-minded outlook lead the way at hillside design hotel Huus Gstaad...

As Swiss Alp town Gstaad continues to draw in the glitzy crowd to its slopes, nearby hotel Huus Gstaad strikes a fine balance between Alpine retreat and kipping at a rich pal’s home. (You’ve all got rich pals, right?)

Huus Gstaad Design Hotel, Swiss Alps

Actually located between the villages of Saanen and Gstaad itself, the seven-story design hotel — in classic Swiss chalet style — features 136 rooms with plush furnishings: think Hästens beds, wool blankets and warming pendulum lights. With a mix of traditional patterns and contemporary materials; Huus Gstaad’s communal spaces are the perfect place to end a tiresome day spent skiing or hiking mountainside.

Architect Erik Nissen Johansen led a gut renovation; which saw walls removed, windows enlarged and a sense of urban modernity added. Now, natural light floods in from every direction; and the views over the surrounding rolling hillsides are simply breathtaking. The hotel’s 400m2 living room — with the highest bottle wall in the region — is a great spot to enjoy a bit of the old après-ski; whilst a choice of four restaurants provides ample opportunity to tuck into Alpine flavours in traditional settings. A Finnish sauna, herbal steam bath, and ice fountain are just some of the offerings at the Huus’s 2,000m2, three floor wellness retreat.
