Winter Season at Waldhaus Flims Alpine Grand Hotel & Spa
The 2017/18 winter season will see the newly-refurbished Waldhaus Flims Alpine Grand Hotel and Spa fully open for its first winter, following its CHF 40million refurbishment that took place throughout 2016 and 2017. The 5-star superior Grand Hotel was reopened in December 2016, while work continued on the two guest houses: Villa Silvana and Chalet Belmont.
The retreat’s expansive spa, three on-site restaurants and two bars have also undergone refurbishment with the addition of a new après-ski bar called The Summit, also open for the upcoming ski season.
Waldhaus Flims is in the heart of the world-class Flims ski resort, offering ski-in ski-out capabilities and also a shuttle service to the Flims ski lift station, which is just a 5-minute journey. The Flims resort connects to both Laax and Falera, providing 224km of slopes, 4 snowparks, and one of the most reliable regions in the world for snow – as well as one of the locals’ best kept secrets.
Non-skiers can indulge in the gastronomic and wellness delights at Waldhaus Flims, as well as a plethora of further winter activities in the area. Next door to the hotel is an internationally-acclaimed curling rink, while other options include snow shoe tours, cross-country skiing or a visit to the Mirasteilas observatory.
The gastronomic offering at Waldhaus Flims is second-to-none in the region. The on-site restaurants include The Grand fine dining restaurant in the Grand Hotel, classic Italian cuisine at Pomodoro and Il Tschaler in the vaulted cellar dedicated to regional cheese dishes including fondues and raclettes.
One of the hotel’s most renowned features is its 3,000m2 Waldhaus spa, which has also had a complete refurbishment with the addition of the new private day spa suite. The Waldhaus spa includes a vast indoor and outdoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room, treatment rooms and new 24-hour fitness studio (with daily classes) in addition to the spa’s most unique feature, a natural outdoor swimming lake, fed directly from the mountains spring water.
In winter, the frozen swimming lake is a place to plunge into the icy waters before entering the outdoor sauna in order to stimulate circulation and improve skin. It’s an experience you shouldn’t miss this winter!
