New Swiss hotel has a stunning mountain backdrop and more

Located in the heart of Davos, and against the backdrop of the majestic “Magic Mountain”, Hotel Flüela Davos is one of the newest luxury hotels by Hyatt’s Unbound Collection.

Hotel Flüela Davos joins three existing Hyatt hotels in Switzerland and signals Hyatt’s continued commitment to growing its luxury brands in sought-after destinations in Europe.

The hotel itself is a story-worthy symbol of Swiss heritage. Built at a time when stagecoaches were the primary mode of travel for merchants and postal services, Hotel Flüela extended its hospitality to weary travelers – a tradition that endures to this day.

For 155 years, this cherished landmark has been an essential part of Davos’ journey from a secluded Alpine village to a world-renowned mountainside health resort and spa town, and eventually to a thriving global hub for business and leisure.

Today, Hotel Flüela Davos offers worldly independent travelers Swiss Alpine comfort in a captivating luxury setting.

An alpine sanctuary

Adorned with sophistication, the 51 rooms and suites provide guests with an alpine sanctuary surrounded by warm winter tones.

Guests can enjoy their stay 5,118 feet (1,560 meters) above sea level, in rooms that offer premium amenities including a state-of-the-art private ski locker, access to the Flüela Soul Spa, a ski butler and a discount on ski rental equipment.

The hotel also has 5,220 square feet (485 square meters) of meeting space, thoughtfully designed to inspire creativity and foster productive discussions, while offering stunning views of the surrounding panorama and the vibrant streets of Davos. It is conveniently located just over a mile (2 km) away from the Davos Conference Centre, home to the renowned World Economic Forum, becoming the ideal hub for professionals seeking an immersive experience in complete luxury.

Guests can step away from the hustle and bustle of the city in the hotel’s wellness area, which features two saunas, two steam rooms, a relaxation room, two treatment rooms, an indoor swimming pool and an outdoor hot tub.

The ultimate way to unwind after a day of winter sports, guests of the hotel will also receive complimentary access to the spa, which includes a new gym with the latest technology and equipment.
