HBA London designs The Alpina Gstaad's new suite

The Alpina Gstaad, a luxury hotel in Switzerland, has launched a new five-bedroom, six-bath suite.

Located on the ground floor with two terraces and views of the surrounding mountains, the 9,150-square-foot Alpina Suite has its own private gardens with whirlpools and features direct access to the hotel and to the Six Senses Spa. A foyer opens on to a 65-foot long gallery that leads to a living room with a bar and lounge. Fourteen arched floor-to-ceiling windows in the rotunda-like living room give direct access to the west-facing terrace. Other features include a library with fireplace and a kitchen with dining area.

The Master Suite and the other four bedrooms all feature dressing rooms and walk-in closets. Two double rooms connect to the master suite, making them convenient for guests with children.

In creating this new suite, HBA London continued with its contemporary interpretation of traditional Swiss chalet architecture using local materials from the Bernese Oberland, stone from the surrounding Alps, and weathered timber from farmhouses in Saanenland. Lined with antique fir wood, the Alpina Suite is cozy and very comfortable with oversized leather chairs and large down-filled sofas. Bespoke furniture and pieces by Holly Hunt, Minotti, Kettall and Stephane Duceteau provide accents.

The Alpina Gstaad, opened in December 2012, is set on five acres in Oberbort, the hilltop area of the village which is in Saanenland in the heart of the Bernese Alps.  The property has three restaurants: the first European outpost of MEGU, the Japanese restaurant; a traditional Swiss stübli; and Restaurant Sommet serving contemporary cuisine. The hotel features a 21,500-square -foot Six Senses Spa, a bar and lounge, wine-tasting room, private cinema, cigar lounge, a ballroom and several boardrooms. The 56 rooms and suites – all with balconies – range from 333 square feet to 4,305 square feet.
