This must be one of the very best new hotels in the world ! We stayed for two nights in early June and had a wonderful suite overlooking the town and the mountains beyond. The Alpina has an excellent staff and management. We felt completely at home from the moment of our arrival until we departed. The decoration of the property is actually breathtaking ... and the spa is large and beautifully equipped. Perhaps the food offerings would benefit from some more moderately priced traditional options ... but I feel sure that this will come with time. We would return without hesitation and will be recommending The Alpina to all our friends. We offer our congratulations to all the Alpina Team. Keep up the good work !

Room Tip: All the rooms have beautiful views !

Breathtaking entry approach to the hotel. Overall, the architecture and attention to detail is superb, including in the terrific spa downstairs. Construction seems solid - mostly soundproof, with well-thought-out systems ie electronic curtain controls. Many doorman and/or much security - I was never quite sure - but we felt quite safe and well watched-over. Topnotch smooth service and multilingual; during our week, i only encountered 1 staff member (a room attendant) who didn't speak English. Nice dining choices & fun bar scene on some nights. They make it too easy to stay in the hotel and be pampered, instead of exploring the beautiful Swiss outdoors - although they offer a complimentary car to the village of Gstaad ( ~10min walk). Child- and dog-friendly. Very nice touches include the kids' slide, kid-friendly holiday activities, fabulus cashmere throws in the rooms, and sliding doors that also tilt open.

I stayed at the Alpina for 3 nights attending a business event in March 2013. Honestly this hotel is absolutely amazing. They just opened last December and managed to have a perfect smooth operation and offer the highest end of Swiss luxury hotel service.

The design of the entire property is a perfect blend of alpine chic with the most state of the art amenities. An impressive driving entrance, an inviting and grand lobby, tremendous stylish restaurant facilities and in my opinion rooms, that have an superior interior infrastructure. Even the most demanding guest, will be impressed by this hotel product.

The spa, quite expensive though, is a highlight – Six Sense Spa offers a great variety of treatments, amazing infrastructure, indoor wellness, heated outdoor pool – just all you can imagine.

The service of the young and very hospitable team is attentive and impeccable (great result of the management training efforts). Congratulations to all of the staff!

Spent 4 wonderful nights at this brand new hotel and so far so good. The Spa and the staff were first class. The majority of the rest of the staff and service were next to perfect except for some minor incidents, which I am positive with time will be ironed out with tiime. I look forward to going back.

The hotel is just next to the famous palace hotel. This makes the location very interesting. The hotel has everything what you need and the mixture of the guests was just right. The privat and luxury six senses spa is included in the room rate. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. Check-in and also the check-out time takes less than few minutes. No credit-card deposit, no passport. The quality of the rooms and the beds are high class. Absolutely no noise from outside or from others guests. We didn't have dinner or breakfast in the hotel. The Bar and lounge is nice, but not overhelming. You always have the opportunity to go for a drink to the palace hotel next door. It's more interesting and you will find there more life. Parking is free with an easy access to the rooms. The hotel meet all our expectations, no disappointments. With all includings, the hotel has fair room rates.

We were staying in a neighboring hotel and we decided to go try the new Megu restaurant. What can I say except that it was pure perfection. We were welcomed by Andre who took care of us throughout our luncheon and he had made perfect recommendations for us to try.
From the starters (to die for) to the main dishes, dessert and the succulent Sake, all I can say is that our guests and ourselves were in heaven.
After this memorable lunch we had asked the reception if it would be possible to visit the rooms for future reservations. They went out of their way to show us a room in each category and I must say that they were all very charming, with magnificent views and impeccable finish. It goes without saying that we consequently booked rooms for the next season.
This is definitely an excellent plus for Gstaad and we look forward to our stay there.
Congratulations to the entire team who will put the Alpina on top of everyone's list from now on.
