Switzerland: HUUS Gstaad Hotel

Did You Say Cosy?

Really Cool Interior Design

Sorry for the poor quality of the photos. It was before I invested in a new mobile phone. 

Finally, here is a new hotel review! I do less and less for lack of time! I still recommend hotels (which I have tested) in my articles on destinations. But for the HUUS Gstaad Hotel, I really like the cosy hipster interior design created by a Swedish architect studio (I guess). It’s the kind of hotel where you feel like at home. 

My weekend evenings were really festive with DJs, champagne, sushi platters at the bar and a mix of locals and tourists. During my short stay in Gstaad and Saanen, my planning was super busy, so I didn’t have time to test the spa. On the other hand, I had a lovely dinner with friends at La Vue Restaurant. I ate delicious Italian-inspired dishes, prepared with local products. 

The Room

A Warm Cocoon

My room was a real cocoon, difficult to leave: really comfortable bedding, small bathroom very well equipped. And the cuckoo clock (photo above) which reminds you that you are actually in Switzerland. The French window opens onto a courtyard with sun loungers and views of the surrounding countryside. So quiet and relaxing (photo below).

Suisse: HUUS Gstaad Hotel

Vous avez dit cosy?

Très agréables salons, bar et restaurant

Désolée pour la qualité moyenne des photos, c’était avant que j’investisse dans un nouveau téléphone portable.

Voilà, enfin un hotel review : j’en fait de moins en moins, par manque de temps! Je continue à vous recommander des hôtels (que j’ai testés) dans mes articles sur les destinations. Mais je tenais à vous parler du HUUS Gstaad Hotel qui m’a beaucoup plu! A commencer par la décoration conçue par un studio d’architecte suédois (je crois) : à la fois design, super cosy et hypster! Le genre d’hôtel où on se sent comme à la maison. 

Les soirées du week-end sont festives avec DJ, champagne, plateaux de sushi au bar et un savant mélange de locaux et touristes. Lors de mon séjour éclair à Gstaad et Saanen, mon planning était chargé, aussi je n’ai pas eu le temps de tester le spa. Par contre, j’ai dîné avec des amis à La Vue Restaurant : délicieux plats d’inspiration italienne, préparés avec des produits locaux.

La chambre

Douillette à souhait!

Ma chambre est un vrai cocon qu’il est difficile de quitter : litterie très confortable, petite salle de bain très bien équipée. Et le coucou de l’horloge (photo ci-dessus) qui vous rappelle que vous êtes bien en Suisse. La porte fenêtre donne sur une sorte de cours avec chaises longues et vue sur la campagne environnante. Relaxant (photo ci-dessous).

Switzerland, Saas-Fee: The Fienart Resort & Spa

  

Ideally Located

Healthy Breakfasts

The Fienart Resort & Spa is located in the center of the village of Saas-Fee. Which is very nice to walk around early in the morning, before having breakfast served in the main restaurant. The space is clear with large windows that allow to enjoy a direct view of the mountains. 

I liked the variety and freshness of the different foods on offer at the buffet. The set makes for breakfast, a privileged break before attacking long days of skiing. This morning, as the weather is not good, it heavily snows with a lot of fog, I prefer to go to the spa of the hotel.

Back to my spacious room, in the wing of the hotel where the pool and spa are located. The newly renovated bathroom is open on the bed side (pictured below). The room is very comfortable and has a balcony with mountain views (the above first two pictures of the article are taken from this balcony). 

    

The Paradia Spa

Bathed in Light

The Paradia Spa, which covers more than 1200 m², includes steam baths, a jacuzzi (where I spent a long time), a relaxation area under a glass roof (where I fell asleep, above photo) etc …

Just like in Germany, part of the spa is (swimsuits) textile free (and children free too), so I only tested the pool, jacuzzi and deckchair. The pool is long enough to make real lengths (left photo below). 

  

The César Ritz

Un dîner gourmand

If the breakfasts are already very nice, the dinner is excellent! Again I really liked the quality of the products (mainly regional) and seasonal. 

The service and the presentation are well cared for: the plates are as beautiful as they are good. Lovely! Photo below: 1. scallops, 2. Caesar salads, 3. fish and 4. dessert! I only ate the delicious chocolate cake because everything was plentiful.
