Some call it Swiss Bliss. Ultima Gstaad is a little bit of heaven in the lower altitudes at 3,400 feet, a 10-minute stroll from the quaint pedestrian village of Gstaad in the shadow of glacial peaks and a celebrity slope scene.
Ultima Gstaad is the perfect private complement to a busy ski day. It’s a five-star boutique chalet resort with 11 suites and six private residences. Find comfort in cozy fireplaces, large marble bath areas, soft textiles and furs, riveting mountain views and a bar-none wellness spa featuring La Prairie beauty treatments, esthetic medical boosts and healthy elixirs.
Your quarters are just 1,300 feet from the Eggli lift. And when the ski day is done, then all is done for you – from private chef dining or dinner at Duchessa, to bespoke smokey cocktails crafted at the lobby bar, to hors oeuvres and treats served between meals and during evening entertainment.
Enter a fantasyland of transitional contemporary décor where cascading crystal chandeliers, mixed exposed hardwood surfaces, gleaming glass and veined Northern Italian marbles meet indulgent furs, leathers and plush beige appointments set off by Victorian red accents. The 11 suites, range in area from 600 square feet to 2,600 square feet, each with its own style and dominant color tones.
