After five years of planning, building, and much anticipation, the attention-grabbing, ultra-modern hotel opened on December 20, 2013, and so far, it’s receiving rave reviews.

A gilded, futuristic exterior stands out among the white, snow-covered background, giving way to a design-inspired interior that’s both luxurious and comfortable, as well as totally Alpine-chic. Each of the 216 rooms features a private balcony and high-end amenities, while the 25 suites are truly fit for snow queens (and kings).

Après-skiing, the 12,000 square-foot Alpine SPA with 14 rooms offers warmth and relaxation in the form of indulgent treatments, two swimming pools, a sauna, steam room, and to-die-for views. Once guests have worked up an appetite on the slopes, they can indulge in the flavors of the region at Brasserie Capricorn, or Alpine-Asian fusion cuisine at restaurant Matsu.

For the bunny-slopers, there’s Globini Kids Club and Sixteenhundred Teens Club, with entertainment ranging from large play areas spread over two floors to a movie theater.

However, the true highlight might be the location itself, standing high above Lake Davos, offering spectacular views throughout the hotel. Outside, the skiing is world-class—but the luxurious comfort inside might make it difficult to leave.
