The Alpina offers on-site Michelin-starred restaurants, a wine cellar containing over 1’700 selections, and a range of services to experience.

The property hosts the only Six Senses Spa in Switzerland, a holistic destination inspired by Asian wellness traditions that draw upon the energy of the Alps and the Bernese Oberland’s peaks and pastures.

The Alpina Gstaad has been ahead of the curve in sustainable practice. Indigenous wood and stone, local craftspeople and recycled materials were used in the property’s construction. The Alpina Gstaad strives to do its part in every detail for responsible conduct in energy. The property employs a mix of ecological power, and reduces yearly consumption through hydroelectric strategies, central heating generated from the Saanen community plant fueled by wood chips, sensor-driven air conditioning and heating systems and pools partially heated with reclaimed energy.

Sustainability Focuses

Community
  • Alpina uses excellent and reliable local hiking and skiing guides.
  • Fruits, vegetables and milk are bought locally, and the meat is from the local butcher.
  • Local companies did all the hotel woodwork and made all the carpets and curtains.
Waste Control
  • The whole hotel is energy efficient, using renewable energy from hydro, solar and wood chips, smart systems and appliances, and reclaimed energy from freezers and refrigerators to heat its pools.
Water Management
  • Rainwater harvesting from the various buildings and its retention in a storage basin built at the Resort. This basin allows water to be stored for the landscaped areas of the Resort.
  • To ensure that the basin has water throughout the year, there is a connection with the natural lake on the property, which pumps whenever necessary.
  • The resort’s hot water distribution network is thermally isolated, helping to reduce running water waste.
