GS­TAAD, SWITZER­LAND

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Life -

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.
