Ultima Gstaad, set in the upscale resort town of Gstaad, in the Bernese Oberland region of the Swiss Alps, has curated exclusive experiences for families this summer, particularly for those from the GCC region.
These experiences, set in the stunning beauty of Gstaad, include a venture into the mountains to discover the picturesque alpine lakes. This includes Lake Arnen, also known as the Pearl of the Saanenland. It offers idyllic views and a mountain-side restaurant. A fun-filled day at the Cailler Chocolate Factory leaves one surrounded by the sweet scent of chocolate. Guests can take a family electric bike excursion around Gstaad, or hire a pedalo to experience the tranquillity of the waters.
Following a day of activities, guests can spend some much-needed downtime at the Ultima Gstaad Spa, with a hiking massage for the adults, and a “My First Massage” for the little guests. To end the day, guests can enjoy a family dinner at the Ultima Gstaad Restaurant, where Chef Andrea Franceschi will serve an array of delights presented in his signature creative style.
Alternatively, guests can take to the sky for dinner in a hot air balloon for an experience like no other. While on board, families can enjoy a selection of typical Fondues Wyssmüller with various beverage choices. To end the meal on a sweet note, there are meringues for dessert.
Guests spending three days in the Signature Suite are invited to experience the “Recharge to the Full” wellness programme. It begins with an NDA test to allow the expert team to better understand each guest’s needs and requirements. Ultima Gstaad Spa’s latest technology and techniques mean that each guest’s well-being can be elevated to its optimum.
As the mountains provide an ideal setting for the best therapy, guests can spend each morning exploring Gstaad’s landscape, from following the hiking trails, to kayaking down the La Sarine, mountain biking across steep valleys and horse riding through the meadows.
These outdoor activities are followed by spa treatments: Ultima Signature Massage, The Legendary Facial to nourish the face and body, the Mountains Ritual, and an Immune Booster IV Drip in the state-of-the-art clinic. Guests are served locally sourced fish, meat and vegetarian creations by Chef Andrea Franceschi, all tailored to each guest’s needs and preferences.
The “Recharge to The Full” programme is the ideal combination of mountains, massage and clinic-based treatments to make guests feel truly recharged and renewed.
