Eco HOtel

Is This Europe’s Most Eco-Friendly Hotel?

Switzerland’s coolest eco-hotel has finally opened its doors for summer 2018 and we LOVE it.

Are you looking for a holiday destination with a difference? Where you can completely switch off without slumming it? Then Valsana, Switzerland’s newest eco-hotel might just be for you.

Valsana is an eco-powerhouse, running on 95% recycled energy, with a self-sufficient energy system called an ice battery. The eco philosophy runs throughout the hotel from the chunky wood furniture, floors and exterior, made with the cladding of the previous property, to the coconut fibre mattresses.  Each room has its own vintage record player and the large balconies all have hammock chairs for an afternoon of reading from the collection of hand selected books in your room. Spend the evening relaxing at Valsana Spa with views of the pine forests.

The hotel first made its mark when it opened for the winter season and summer 2018 is the first time it will open for nicer weather and we can’t wait to see those views!

 

Restaurant Twist has a light and holistic approach to Swiss mountain cuisine and caters for vegetarian or vegan customers with the bulk of the menu being plant-based. Guests have the option to add locally sourced fish or meat.

Arosa is the perfect summer destination for all ages with exceptional hiking around the lakes, wild swimming, fly-fishing, horse riding and mountain biking. Valsana runs yoga, trail running and hiking retreats and has its own bike shop and tennis courts on site.

Children can learn to sail on Lake Obersee or swing through the tress at the Arosa Rope Park. This summer, Arosa will open Switzerland’s first bear sanctuary, home to four rescued brown bears.
