Located on the ground floor with two expansive terraces and superb views of the surrounding mountains, the 9,150-square-foot Alpina Suite has its own private gardens with whirlpools and features direct access to the hotel and to the Six Senses Spa. A large foyer opens on to a 65-foot long gallery that leads to a very spacious living room with a bar and lounge. Fourteen arched floor-to-ceiling windows in the rotunda-like living room give direct access to the west-facing terrace. Other features include a library with fireplace and a state-of-the-art kitchen with dining area.
The Master Suite and the other four bedrooms all feature dressing rooms and walk-in closets. Two double rooms connect to the master suite, making them convenient for guests with children.
In creating this new suite, HBA London continued with its contemporary interpretation of traditional Swiss chalet architecture using local materials from the Bernese Oberland, stone from the surrounding Alps and weathered timber from centuries-old farmhouses in Saanenland. Lined with antique fir wood, the Alpina Suite is cozy and very comfortable with oversized leather chairs and large down-filled sofas. Bespoke modern furniture and pieces by Holly Hunt, Minotti, Kettall and Stephane Duceteau provide elegant modern accents.
"We have families staying during the holidays and our Panorama Suite is always the first to sell out," explained Managing Director Eric Favre. "The new Alpina Suite will give our guests another very comfortable option."
