The 2015 winter ski season has kicked off with a flurry of new luxury hotels in the Alps. Chief among these is the Hôtel de Rougemont, newly opened in December 2014, situated close to glamorous Gstaad (a 10-minute car ride).
Designed as a village of five chalets, the hotel has 19 rooms, 14 suites and 4 penthouses decorated with solid wood, local stone, leather and fur. The facilities are expansive for a small property; you’ll find a Pure Altitude spa with a black mosaic pool, a cigar lounge, a game room for younger guests and a private 18-seat cinema that screens Hollywood classics.
With views framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, the Lounge is distinguished by its central, open fireplace, crafted by artisans with stone from the local river. There’s also a gastronomic restaurant, a wine bar and the Roc Bar for après-ski cocktails and Champagne.
Hôtel de Rougemont is a member of Design Hotels.
