Saas Fee, Switzerland
Covid-19 - What you should know
Skylark’s advisor team is here to support you. Travel is tricky right now and planning isn’t always straightforward, but our team of advisors is here to assist in every way we can.
What it is
An uber-luxe, 24-room spa retreat set right on the slopes.
What it isn't
For cars. The mountain peak-ringed ski town of Saas-Fee is proudly automobile-free, and you won’t miss them.
What we think
If you think ski bums are, well, bums, The Capra proves quite the opposite. Founded by a group of mountain-obsessed friends who first set out to share a private ski lodge, then unleashed their dream to the masses, this ski-in, ski-out hotel literally lives the high life, with clean-lined Swiss architecture inspired by fire and ice and exquisite service for all ages (there’s both a wine cellar and a Fun Lab for kiddos complete with a foosball table and DVDs galore). Cozy yet mod rooms are lined with blonde woods and fitted with hangout seating areas and plenty of modern thrills—lightning-fast WiFi, Bluetooth entertainment systems, and Nespresso machines for that requisite pre-slalom caffeine jolt.
You're here because
The Peak Health Spa is an immaculate den of anything you could ask for to chillax apres-ski, including an al fresco hydrotherapy pool, infrared detox wraps and even private Chi Gong classes.
You’ll admit it: you’ve had some terrible meals at ski resorts, which typically rest on their snow-capped laurels. Not so at The Capra, where the locavore brasserie is a study in Swiss deliciousness. After a mountain herb-crusted halibut, pumpkin tortellini with nut butter beurre blanc, and a plate of local cheeses with chutney, you’re ready to do what an hour ago you would have thought unthinkable: another ten runs down the slopes just beyond your door.
In the charming ski village of Saas-Fee, decked by the Swiss Alps and as storybook as they come, thanks to the aforementioned car-free streets. Don’t miss having at least one dinner at Allalin, the highest revolving restaurant on earth (11,482 feet above sea level).
