Huus Gstaad

Set over half a mile above sea level in the Swiss Alps, Huus Gstaad is a terrific mountain getaway. Formerly known as the Steigenberger Hotel, the 136-room property has been transformed by Norwegian designer and architect Erik Nissen Johansen, who carefully blended traditional materials with modern design.

On site amenities include a "living room" with 500 books, a fireplace, and outstanding views, a contemporary bar, a spa, and multiple eateries. Outside, meanwhile, you have access to over 150 miles of skiing slopes and trails, and during warmer months, rafting, rappelling, and biking.
