Drawn by snow-capped mountains, fresh air and hotels known for exquisite service, discerning Middle East travellers planning summer visits to Switzerland have a stunning new option for stays in the exclusive Alpine resort of Gstaad.
Nestled at the heart of a village popularised by the international jet set, the Ultima Gstaad serves up a unique experience for guests to enjoy in the peace and conviviality of their own private chalet, with all the comforts of a luxury hotel.
Privacy and discretion are assured at the five-star boutique property which opened last December. It offers an irresistible blend of traditional and ultra-modern, comprising three immense wooden chalets housing a contemporary and luxurious home from home experience.
Guests can chose from 11 superb suites and six fabulous residences, while enjoying an Italian restaurant, a Spa by La Prairie for face and body treatments, an Aesthetics Clinic and a bespoke, personalised butler service to take care of their every whim 24/7.
For large groups or delegations, corporate or incentive events, weddings and royalty, the hotel becomes a perfectly private destination accommodating guests across 17 units offering 30 bedrooms, each with super kingsize beds and private bathrooms.
General Manager Andrés Oppenheim, with more than 20 years’ experience in hosting visitors from the Arab world at top Swiss hotels, says: “Our suites and residences are ideally suited to selective Middle Eastern guests, and the level of service we offer matches and exceeds what they perceive as Swiss excellence in hospitality.
“Guests enjoy and appreciate generous space, superb comfort, state-of-the-art technology, and of course the absolute privacy and discretion we guarantee, for the perfect get-away. This is a haven among the beautiful Bernese Alps, and we will be a popular choice with travellers from across the Middle East.”
A year-round resort for hiking, winter sports, shopping and wellness, the picture postcard chalet village of Gstaad boasts one of the largest ski areas of the Alps, including a glacier, and visitors enjoy winter sports from November to May.
Madonna, Julie Andrews, Roger Moore and James Blunt are all regulars in the area and the famous Promenade is a shopper’s paradise of high end boutiques, all on the doorstep of the beautifully crafted, majestic chalets of Ultima Gstaad.
Combining the exclusive qualities of an exclusive Swiss chalet with all the benefits of a luxury hotel, each suite boats marble bathrooms, walk-in wardrobes, state-of-the-art technology, private terraces or balconies with stunning views over the Alps and a flickering fireplace for cosy evenings.
For private or corporate groups, friends travelling together or families, Ultima Gstaad has created six magnificent Residences offering total privacy, or the full suite of hotel services, including a private chef to prepare bespoke menus.
An added attraction for travelling Middle East families during the warmer months approaching is the presence in Gstaad of top-class summer camps, including those offered by the international school of Le Rosey, one of the most distinguished establishments of its kind in the world.
