Fabulously located historic hotel dating from 1859, with a view of the Valais Alp 4000ers (peaks over 4 000 metres). Neatly renovated and with an elegant wellness facility added in 2004, the former chalet is now a stylish, luxurious gem with original furnishings. Situated 1650m above sea level in the middle of an alpine hiking and skiing paradise. Authentic cuisine, excellent Valais wine list.
This nostalgic Art Nouveau style building with its Belle Époque atmosphere, already described in Thomas Mann's book "Zauberberg" [Magic Mountain], opened its doors in 1900 as a luxury sanatorium and was later converted to a mountain hotel. The soul of the house, its architecture, has been preserved in its original form until today. The Villa Guarda - formerly the former doctor's residence - and the Chalet exude new splendour with their luxurious suites. With the Schatzalp train, the "Magic Mountain" is just four minutes away from the centre of Davos. Free WLAN access throughout the hotel premises, even in the Schatzalp/Strela skiing area.
Guests at this top hotel with its stunning views are taken directly to the Arosa skiing and hiking area aboard the hotel's own Tschuggen-Express (ski-in & ski-out). The 130 rooms and suites were designed by Carlo Rampazzi, while star architect Mario Botta created the hotel's 5,000m2 wellness complex. The hotel also includes a kindergarten, 5 restaurants and a sports shop. Member of The Leading Hotels in the World amongst others.
Newly constructed in 1999, the hotel is ideally situated on a plateau at 1860 metres a.s.l. amidst a pristine landscape. The generously-sized twin rooms have been lovingly furnished with stone pine furniture and have a terrace that offers up spectacular views. Predominantly Graubünden specialities prepared using regional products are served in the restaurant and the 'Arven lounge'. The hotel is readily accessible by private car, post bus and – especially romantically – by horse-drawn carriage.
