The Area: In Saas-Fee, a “picture perfect” Swiss Alpine idyl known for its 4000+ metres snow-capped peaks and Wham!’s “Last Christmas” video.
The DNA: Although small in size, THE CAPRA offers many amenities. Guests can sample honest, seasonal and unpretentious dishes at “Brasserie 1809”, with ingedrients sourced within 150km. There is also a cozy bar, lounge and a wine cellar/tasting room. There is a fitness and a wellness centre with indoor pool, exercise room, steam room, sauna, and a jacuzzi. An array of activities can be enjoyed on site or in the surroundings, including cycling and hiking in summer and skiing in winter. The hotel is just a 2-to 5-minute walk from several ski lifts and there is a heated storage room for ski equipment.
