The Alpina Gstaad to Debut a Six Senses Spa

The Alpina Gstaad, Six Senses Spa

The Alpina Gstaad, Six Senses SpaMore news from the Swiss Alps: The Alpina Gstaad has just announced that it has partnered with Six Senses on its swanky spa. Designed by P49 Design, the 21,500-square-foot spa will represent a mélange of the Alps and Asia– both architecturally and with the locally-inspired treatments, which will combine indigenous herbs and plants with the Six Senses philosophy. Treatments will run the gamut from massages (Shiatsu, Swedish, Thai, signature Six Senses) and Body Care (Salt scrubs, seaweed, Swiss Alpine herbal wraps) to Treatment Baths, Beauty Treatments (facials, manicures, pedicures) and Mind & Body (Acupuncture, qi gong, reiki, tai chi, yoga).

The spa will have 12 treatment rooms, and the changing rooms will come complete with saunas, steam room, and hot and cold plunge pools. In the women’s area, Six Senses sensory pods have water-heated beds. Noteworthy facilities include the indoor infinity pool—designed with limestone boulders and a fir wood ceiling with a skylight; the Flotation Room; the Salt Room; the Color Therapy Room; and the relaxation area—where guests can warm themselves with stones from a heated pit. 

The Alpina Gstaad will open in December 2012 just in time for ski season. The five-star hotel will have 56 balconied rooms and suites; three restaurants including MEGU; a wine-tasting room; a private cinema; a cigar room; a ballroom and several boardrooms.
