Chosen as the location for the first Six Senses property in Switzerland, Crans-Montana is both an idyllic mountain village and an alpine town. Two hours from Geneva, its position on a plateau ensures year-round sunshine and a drier microclimate, making it a playground across both winter and summer. Opening in time for the 2022/23 winter season, the property sits above the main gondola in Crans, offering ski-in/ski-out access. Awarded for their work at Six Senses Con Dao, Parisian architecture agency AW² have designed the 45 rooms and suites with a Swiss chalet feel.
Bay windows and private terraces offer unobstructed views of the Alps, while natural materials such as oak, quartzite stone and slate create a feeling of warmth. A focus on fresh and wholesome food is central to the gastronomy offerings, with Byakko, the signature restaurant, offering cuisine with a Japanese twist. After skiing the forest trails, guests will appreciate the recovery options at the 2,000sqm spa which uses smart tech to optimise the body’s natural healing processes. The summertime brings opportunities to enjoy nature in Crans with water sports on the lake, beachside restaurants, golf, paragliding, and mountaineering. The resort boasts 17 serviced residences with access to the hotel’s amenities. As one of the last construction projects in Switzerland for sale with no restrictions for international owners, 13 of these villas can be bought as a second home.
