Fodor's Expert Review Tschuggen Grand Hotel

Sonnenbergstr., Arosa, Graubünden, 7050, Switzerland Fodor's Choice

Luxury seekers looking for a friendly vibe are in seventh heaven as they step into the welcoming environs of this mountainside hotel, which offers impressive amenities such as a wonderful spa and direct access to the ski slopes. The lobby, lounge, and bar are decked out with plush (though a tad dated) interiors, and the floor-to-ceiling windows and ample balconies envelop guests in the natural beauty of the surrounding mountains and wooded pine slopes. Inside, individually designed guest rooms with leather headboards, vibrant fabric accents, and stucco ceilings are elegant; bathrooms are finished in local granite and marble. Europe's only hotel-operated private railway, the Tschuggen Express, enables guests to bypass long lift lines and travel from the hotel grounds to the center of the ski area in just 2½ minutes. At the Bergoase spa, the striking modernistic pools offer sensory serenity come rain, snow, or shine.
