Waldhotel Fletschhorn

A testament to its timeless allure, the Waldhotel Fletschhorn continues to captivate guests, having recently reopened its doors after a two-year hiatus. In 2022, it proudly garnered recognition as one of Switzerland's top 50 4-star hotels by NZZ, a renowned Swiss newspaper.


Nestled in the heart of the remarkable Saas-Fee, known as "The Pearl of the Alps" and conveniently located just six kilometres from the Italian border, this hidden gem is a true sanctuary. Shielded from the usual trappings of modern development, Saas-Fee remains an oasis of serenity and authenticity. The village's car-free streets and time-honoured architecture transport visitors to a bygone era, where the past seamlessly melds with the present.


To reach this exclusive retreat, guests embark on a scenic journey along a private road, whisked away in electric buggies for a delightful 15-minute ride from the village. Waldhotel Fletschhorn, a century-old lodge, is the well-guarded secret of those who seek ultimate privacy, and the pursuit of holistic well-being.

While winter transforms the lodge into a luxurious base for exhilarating cross-country skiing adventures, it is during the summer that the hotel truly shines, offering a sublime alternative to the bustling beaches and sweltering heat of the Mediterranean. Each of the 13 well-appointed bedrooms features a balcony that overlooks a verdant valley adorned with majestic evergreen pines and the awe-inspiring Mischabel mountains, their peaks reaching over 4,000 meters.


The hotel's spa and wellness offerings are second to none, led by the esteemed Head Therapist Gergo Aradi, renowned internationally for his expertise in massage therapy, yoga, meditation, and life coaching. The signature Fletschhorn Bespoke Swedish Massage is legendary, while a diverse treatment menu tempts guests with holistic life coaching, guided meditation, and rejuvenating relaxation sessions for couples to enjoy together.


Here, guests immerse themselves in a myriad of activities, from leisurely forest walks and charming marmot encounters to indulging in quiet reading, writing, painting, and mushroom hunting. Those seeking adventure can embark on e-bike explorations, revel in the free use of cable cars during the summer season, or venture to the grand Mattmark, Europe's largest earth dam, with its picturesque Norwegian-style landscapes. For the oenophiles, excursions to local vineyards unveil the captivating history and artistry of winemaking in the Valais region.


Culinary experiences at Waldhotel Fletschhorn are an art form in themselves.
