This yoga and meditation retreat is for you if you love to move - whether it’s yoga, hiking or exploring; if you enjoy mountains, fresh air that smells of herbs and fir trees, waking up to breathtaking views of forest covered mountains that line the valley and if you appreciate good food, designer alpine decor and architecture, space and tranquility. For the third year now, we are offering a Winter yoga retreat which embraces the magnificence of Swiss Alps in the most peaceful of seasons, a Summer yoga retreat which invites to practice outdoors and most of the sessions take place on our amazing rooftop terrace overlooking the mountains and of course, the signature Autumn yoga retreat which enchants with a multitude of colours, crispiness and clarity of mountain air as well as majestic quality of nature all around our retreat location.
We are staying in a beautiful spa hotel nested just by the side of the mountain and surrounded by stunning pristine nature. The ellipse shaped hotel features huge windows along one of the walls which allows you to enjoy magnificent views during the day and fall asleep looking out at the stars. There is also a bathtub with a view available in the room, lots of lovely details and outstanding wooden decor. If you prefer simplicity, there is a more basic choice of room available which is a little smaller and has a regular bathroom. These rooms are in the older building of the hotel. Both types of rooms are available for double/twin or single occupancy.
