Spring is knocking on the door. The perfect time to think of a weekend getaway in the Swiss mountains: a breath of fresh air, a break from everyday life and immersion in everything that makes SWISSness. A stay at the 5* Hotel Crans Ambassador in Crans Montana procures you just that. it is a a luxurious oasis in Valais with a fantastic view of the Alps. Right upon arrival I was fascinated by the style of the hotel. The modern and colorful art of a Parisian gallery set perfect accents in the otherwise simple elegance of the hotel. One or the other picture would also look great at my own home!

After the friendly welcome at the front desk, I was escorted to my deluxe alpine room and got all the amenities explained. What I noticed first was the ingenious room layout. After the generous entrance area, you only reach the sleeping area through the bathroom. This allowed me not only to admire the mountain panorama from the balcony but also when brushing my teeth from the bathroom! Such small details as a night light, which is automatically triggered by motion detectors at night, show the high standard. In addition, the housekeeping comes in the evening again to make the room ready for the night. It is in these gestures that guests can feel that the Crans Ambassador offers the highest level of service.

During the tour of the hotel, I was allowed to take a look at various suites and immediately fell in love with the Romantic Suite. Its bathroom is gorgeous and the terrace with Jacuzzi huge. A little dream!

Equally beautiful is the spa area. Just be! Whether relaxing on the sun terrace or sweating in the sauna – there is everything that makes a wellness lover like me happy. One more aspect I really cherished is that from the spa, like almost everywhere in the hotel, I could also enjoy the magnificent mountain panorama from the pool. The absolute highlight was the anti-stress massage. I was so deeply relaxed that I slept like a stone that night!

La Table – the restaurant that makes every gourmet’s heart beat faster. Chef William Weiss has been inspired by local kitchens and local markets on his travels around the world. All these different influences reflect in his own creations. I love fusion cuisine like that.

Wine and Dine @ Crans Ambassador. Such dinner evenings are regularly held with winemakers from the region. During my stay, the 4-course dinner was accompanied by wines from Domaines Chevaliers. Before the dinner, in the afternoon, we were invited on a tour through their vineyards in Salgesch and a wine tasting with a sommelier world champion. For wine lovers, it is an experience to visit the wineries in the area and learn more about them, then enjoy a dinner with these wines with perfectly matched food. I must confess, I’m not the big wine connoisseur, but it was very interesting to dive into this world.

The breakfast buffet offers everything you need for the perfect start to the day. I especially appreciated the large selection of fruits and freshly squeezed juices. I would also like to have tasted every cake and pastry! They were all homemade and just delicious.

Many thanks to Crans Ambassador for this wonderful stay and the beautiful memories that were created! <3
