Fodor's Review

This newcomer hits the trifecta: comfortable American-style accommodations, impeccable Swiss service, and warm Brazilian hospitality. The lavishly appointed property, owned by Brazilian hotelier Nati Felli and her Swiss husband Giancarlo, is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World. Outside, sweeping views of the Alps form the backdrop of the leafy 9-hole Jack Nicklaus–designed golf course. Inside, the high-tech rooms are big enough to samba in, while faux-fur-topped king-size beds are a delightfully fluffy spot to collapse. Roomsinclude air conditioning and humidification—very unusual in the Alps. There's also a full-service spa administering treatments emphasizing Brazilian botanicals, fitness area with cutting-edge equipment, and a sleek pool with a sexy peek-a-boo window into the sauna. But the restaurant's wraparound terrace, where guests gather to watch the pinkish alpenglühen (the Swiss version of the nothern lights), is the big draw.
