A Gentleman's Trip To Gstaad - Beyond The Expected

It was a wonderful sunny Friday morning in September - autumn was already showing it's first glance - when we packed the Jaguar F-Type S and drove up to Gstaad.
A perfect chance to film a part of this trip and give you an idea of Switzerland's diversity, endless perfection of mountains & lakes.



Arriving in Gstaad is a very unique experience. Truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. The Alpina Gstaad topped by far every possible Hotel experience I have ever had. Let me explain why...

The Aplina Gstaad is located up on the hill of the village with a spectacular view to the 'Saanetal' and the village itself. While driving through the village it suddenly arises on the top of the hill with all it's shine and charm. You can read my review on Tripadvisor here

When you're on the road to one of the leading Hotels in Europe with a Jag, you totally transform into James Bond. Over the movie history of James Bond, there is no doubt that he is a perfect gentleman. And a gentleman drives a proper car (Jaguar is a supplier since years).

And if you park your car in front of the entrance (after driving through a tunnel), I think this proofs it again.

The rooms are scoring with a super large scale. You have your own fireplace, balcony, a huge king size bed and a TV that you defintely never use:)

The fireplace turns the whole room into a very cosy living atmosphere, such a romantic place to spend holidays with your partner.

Needless to say that one of the highlights of The Aplina Gstaad is the insanely beautiful view you experience in the morning, check this out:

After our breakfast we used the pool outside. The light of the sun broke through the mist on the water and turned this place into a fairytale

Two more outstanding points I absolutely love in this hotel... 
The first is for sure the expressive entrance with the beautiful ornament

Another cool fact of this fabolous place is the crazy art they're presenting. There is art everywhere, the owner shows his affinity for modern art.

The two restaurants (Sommet & Megu) are exclusively delicious. Eating on this level is a mesmerizing experience and kicks the art of cooking into the stratosphere

The service and attention we have received during this week-end is simply unrivaled. The staff is fluent in German, English and French. Each single employee is very friendly and serves you with all the duties you need. Eric Favre, the general manager, welcomes you personally - I highly appreciated this attention.

What an outstanding experience, thanks to The Alpina Gstaad and the staff for these wonderful days. I will return to this place for sure.

The only downside I can find is the spa. The men & women's sector is separated and that simply means you cannot spend sauna or steam bath together as a couple.
