This luxurious spa hotel occupies an enviable location just metres from the nearest chairlift, ensuring guests can hit the slopes within minutes of leaving their luxurious lodgings. The Ultima Gstaad is just 1 km from the Gstaad train station and a 10-minute drive from the local airport.
Rooms & Suites
The hotel exudes a traditional Swiss ski chalet-like atmosphere across its 6 spacious residencies and 11 opulent suites.
Each of the suites boasts a crackling bronze fireplace that heats between its solid timber walls. Furnishings are upholstered with high-end regional fabrics such as fur or wool, while the marble-clad en-suite bathroom boasts a roomy two-person tub and a piping hot rain shower. Private balconies allow guests to peer out over the grandiose mountains outside.
The two to four-bedroom residences offer privacy and seclusion for groups of up to 8 guests. Each comes complete with a fully equipped kitchen, as well as a plush communal dining space and lounge.
Spa & Wellness
For the health and wellness aficionado, the Ultima Spa is rightfully the hotel’s standout attraction – with black marble walls that contrast against its bronze fixtures to create a seductive effect.
Guests can soak in a bubbling whirlpool hot tub either outside or indoors to soothe their aching muscles. But for maximum relaxation, it’s hard to go past the steamy sauna or the Turkish style hammam. Sore skiers in need of some serious relief can book a spot with the talented hotel masseuse, who expertly deploys an array of scented La Prairie oils in a blissfully relaxing session.
As for beautification, the in-house Ultima Clinic is the one-stop-shop for all your anti-aging and detox needs. Although numerous treatments are available, the Radiofrequency massage is its standout affair. The process uses special hot poles to increase circulation, consequently making the skin feel more taunt in as little as one session.
If guests didn’t kill enough calories on the ski field, they’re able to enjoy in a work out at the fully equipped gym or perhaps knock out some laps at the heated indoor pool.
Food & Drink
Upon working up an appetite on the surrounding ski fields, guests can dine on the gourmet creations of the hotel’s renowned La Duchessa restaurant. Italian recipes made from locally sourced produce adorn the a la carte menu, while an exquisite selection of pastries and desserts tempt the sweet tooth to indulge.
An in-house mixologist serves creative cocktails from the bar, which also stocks a selection of fine European wines to top off a perfect day.
The Ultima Gstaad opens on the 12th or 13th of December, which corresponds with the official start of the ski season. Moreover, Ultima Gstaad is open during the summer season due to the many activities in Gstaad, a large demand for detox and wellness retreats, and of course for outdoor activities such as golf, hiking and biking. The 6 residences remain open all year around.
