The Alpina Gstaad, the award-winning resort in the Swiss alpine village of Gstaad, has announced two new packages for the 2017-18 winter season, complete with private outings, luxury amenities and high-end dining experiences. The new packages will appeal to couples seeking a romantic getaway and to families looking to bond.
The Alpine Couples Package
The romantic experience for two kicks off with a private helicopter that will take the couple to Refuge L’Espace at the top of Glacier 3000. The rustic hideaway puts guests right next to a mammoth peak in the Diablerets massif called the Quille du Diable (the Devil’s Bowling Pin). Ski lovers will enjoy the regional specialties of the Bernese Oberland as well as the views into the Val Derborence in the Valais.
Guests can also take a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride around the village of Lauenen, followed by a massage for two in the hotel’s Six Senses Spa.The package also includes a five-course tasting menu at Sommet and exclusive use of the private cinema for an evening with complimentary snacks.
This package starts at $5,300 in a Junior Suite for two nights and includes breakfast, daily credit for food and beverage in the hotel’s three restaurants, free access to pools, saunas, steam baths and relaxation areas at the spa, service charges and taxes.
The Family Learn to Ski Package
The village of Gstaad is an ideal destination for skiers of all levels—or anyone that likes the extraordinary views of the Alpine landscape. In this new program, kids receive skiing lessons while parents explore the slopes of Gstaad, which span 136 miles. The four-night package includes three full days of ski school lessons with lunch for up to two children (ages three and up) and Gstaad’s multi-day passes for two for the entire stay.
The Learn to Ski package starts at $8,040 based on two adults and one child in two connecting Deluxe Rooms; for two children, the price is $9,199. The price includes the same amenities and fees added in the Alpine Couples Package.
