Set some 1,111 meters above sea level near Gstaad in the Bernese Oberland, the former Steigenberger Hotel has been reshaped by architect and designer Erik Nissen Johansen, a Norwegian visionary and artist with a passion for creative concepts, engaging experiences, and visual storytelling.

Featuring 136 rooms and suites, four restaurants led by award-winning gourmet chef Giuseppe Colella, and all the warm and cozy design style one could possibly want, this place is simply breathtaking.

Featuring a Finnish sauna with panoramic views, an ice fountain, a herbal steam bath, and a gorgeous indoor swimming pool, the wellness center does not disappoint.

“We want guests to feel like they are staying with a friend,” says Erik Nissen Johansen, “a friend with a gorgeous home who takes you on incredible outdoor experiences and then serves you a delicious meal by the fireplace.”

Available through Design Hotels with rates starting at around $300/night. Enjoy!
