HUUS is a special four star superior hotel in the gorgeous Gstaad area! This is not your average hotel! Inside this wooden chalet is another world waiting for you! The hotel invites you to cross the line into an extraordinary world where lovely design and service are top priority. I was so surprised… let me tell you why!
This hotel used to be a Steigenberger hotel but is completely transformed into a trendy hotel. It opened its doors again in 2016 and now is a picture perfect hotel. As soon as you enter, a gorgeous lobby area awaits you with a lot of designer elements. They call it their living room and I can easily see why. It actually reminded me of our living room at home as I noticed some elements which I would buy myself. Front desk staff was efficient and handed our keys in seconds.
I loved my room here! Each room design at HUUS is unique and all feature a trendy cozy mountain theme. The bed was very comfortable. Although the rooms aren’t too large, the lay out is excellent. It really reminds you of being in Switzerland with all the gorgeous designer elements. Do note that each room has its own Mammut backpacks for you to use while staying there. Also, a tablet can be used during your stay with daily newspapers, etc. Loved it! The comfy seating area as well as the large balcony with stunning views were heavenly.
Bathroom featured a very nice and trendy walk-in shower, single sink and toilet. HUUS shampoo and body lotion are the best!!
I recharged myself at one of the most stylish spa areas in town. This is the place to relax, unwind and refresh yourself after an active day in the mountains. The indoor pool is a treat and feels very relaxing. Other facilities I enjoyed were the steam room and sauna, both very well maintained and so relaxing after a day in the mountains! They even have a kids spa where kids can be kids as they have their own place to relax and play. Never seen before!
Speaking of facilities and services, there’s a lot to do here! HUUS offers a range of services included in their rates such as river rafting, family canyoning, climbing lessons, rental of mountain bikes, etc. All complimentary! They even organize daily guided mountain hikes. We actually did a hike with mountain guide Thomas. He is the best guide one could wish for: very knowledgeable and a great storyteller! Oh, and I should definitely mention the two HUUSdogs: Piet and Charly. Loved them and I took them out for a short hike in the beautiful hotel garden.
HUUS has a partnership with Range Rover and I fell in love with their hotel cars…
HUUS has several restaurants for you to explore and each morning, a delicious breakfast is served. The large breakfast buffet offers a lot of food and drinks. I especially liked their freshly prepared crepes! They were so yummie!
HUUS Gstaad is one of a kind and one of the better four star hotels in the area. Loved my stay here and I highly recommend to book a room at HUUS while staying in the Gstaad area.
