Gstaad was once the winter playground of the rich and the famous – in the 1960s and 1970s, you might have found yourself sharing a chairlift with Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Brigitte Bardot or Roger Moore. Having rested on its laurels for too long, the resort has now launched its first new five-star hotel for 100 years. The Alpina is a contemporary interpretation of traditional Swiss architecture. There are three in-house restaurants, including Megu for Modern Japanese food. Another highlight is the Six Senses Spa, housing two pools and offering a programme of holistic treatments. Perfect for skiers from beginner to intermediate level, and, with the nearby Glacier 3000 at Les Diablerets providing guaranteed snow, this resort is reinventing itself as a destination for all seasons.
