Arosa, Switzerland is a stunning Alpine resort town in the heart of the Schanfigg Valley in the canton of Graubünden (2.5 hour train ride from Zurich). Known for its lakes, hiking trails and mountain-biking in the “off season” (Arosa-Lenzerheide is one of Switzerland’s best ski resorts) this was the ideal refuge from the heat-wave that hit Europe last summer. In fact, we loved it so much, we are going back again in Summer 2019!
The most exciting thing about this trip we are able to offer you a space at Arosa’s newest hotel. The Valsana will host us to some of Switzerland’s most luxurious amenities including a purpose-built Yoga studio, spa, restaurants (including the Michelin starred La Vetta at the sister hotel Tschuggen Grand) and awe inspiring views from your room. This will be an active luxury holiday to remember.
The retreat is designed with simplicity and a touch of decadence in mind. Flights direct to Zurich from London are inexpensive and plentiful. Swiss trains depart hourly from the Zurich airport to Arosa and once you arrive the thought of busy life in London (or wherever you might be coming from) will be long gone. This is a trip for you and a friend or you and your partner to take a bit of time to indulge, energise and experience with the help of a bit of movement and pampering in the Swiss mountain air. And if you feel like you might be missing out on your annual summer beach holiday, don’t worry, after last summer’s heat, the beaches in Arosa are trending!
