Crans Montana, located 1,500 meters above sea level in the canton of Valais was a blissful discovery! The region is nestled in the picturesque Rhone Valley, surrounded by the majestic Swiss Alps and boasts of nearly year-round sunshine. Home to the longest funicular railway in Europe, lovely chalets, art galleries, restaurants, exclusive boutiques and bars, Crans Montana offers plenty to do and see. It is also a paradise for sport lovers with 140 km of gorgeous ski slopes and its numerous summertime golf areas.
The five-star Crans Ambassador hotel has one of the highest elevations amongst hotels in the region and is the perfect place to admire the valley and town from above.
Crans Ambassador has 56 rooms and suites with floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces. Here are some Crans Ambassador highlights for you:
- Breakfast with panoramic views: the 180-degree dining room allows everyone to have a delicious morning meal and admire the Alpine nature. Selections include tasty omelettes and a great variety of fruit, cheese, pastries and juices.
- The patio includes a bar lounge and is an amazing place to visit anytime during your stay. Enjoy the sunny Alpine peaks during the day, or warm up around the fireplace and have a glass of local wine on a cozy chair after the sun sets.
- The 1300 m2 spa area impressed with its 17-meter indoor pool with mountain views, a hamam, Finnish and herbal sauna, a high-tech gym and a great range of facial and body cosmeceutical treatments from the Swiss anti-aging science spa “Nescens”. The signature detoxifying body massage, for example, targets all muscles and energy routes and is an amazing way to relax and revitalize.
- The restaurant “La Table” offers dishes from regional produce skillfully prepared by Chef William Weiss, whose cuisine is inspired from his numerous trips around the globe. I enjoyed the perfectly cooked egg as a starter, poached lobster with corn, coco and jasmine foam as a main course, and exotic Pavlova for dessert.
The smiling faces of the staff, the great service and the subtle Alpine luxury of Crans Ambassador made for an exquisite and relaxing weekend getaway not to be missed.
