Après ski and Airtime at Gstaad Palace
The superb five star superior hotel Gstaad Palace first opened its doors in December 1913 and has been owned and managed by three generations of the Scherz family. It is one of the last family run establishments in Europe, where hospitality professionals of character provide a first class experience. The 90 rooms and suites of this seasonal hotel with its extraordinary views onto the Bernese Oberland skilfully combine contemporary glamour with alpine cosiness. Since this winter the landmark of Gstaad has started a cooperation with Airtime in order to provide their guests with free access to series and films, hence they can enjoy their favourites in their home away from home.
Airtime has been installed in partnership with the telecoms giant Swisscom on Samsung’s Reach hospitality system. Airtime is growing very well in Switzerland, perhaps as a result of the multi-language movies in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Russian with subtitles in Chinese, Arabic, Turkish, Polish and Portuguese, giving everyone that home from home experience.
For those wanting to spend some time away from the TV screen, five restaurants from Italian and international specialities, as well as a gourmet cuisine that has been awarded 15 Gault-Millau points await them. For a more soothing pastime, guests can indulge their senses in the 1800 square metre Palace Spa. In summer, an Olympic-sized outdoor pool and four tennis courts are available. Those wanting a very unique experience of the luxury and tranquillity of the Saanenland can book a stay at the Palace’s Walig Hut. Situated at 1700 metres above sea, this alpine cabin dates back to 1783 and provides a truly authentic and close-up encounter with the peace and serenity of the surrounding landscape. The Scherz family welcomes guests from 21 December to 7 March 2021 for the summer season and from 19 June 2021 to 12 September 2021 during summer.
