A serene sanctuary steeped in Belle Epoque elegance, the Waldhaus Flims is cloaked in a storied past dating back to 1869. An iconic destination which has glistened through the eras from the Belle Époque, the Roaring Twenties, the new millennium, and most recently, the unveiling of its lavish renovation.
Surrounded by the graceful woodlands of Switzerland’s largest hotel park, Waldhaus Park, a stroll around the grounds transports guests to an exclusive haven of wide-open meadows, quiet walking paths shaded by old-growth linden and pine trees, serene ponds, and panoramic views of mountain peaks as far as the eye can see. It’s nature at its most enchanting.
Arranged between three buildings all connected by underground passages and covered walkways, the rooms and suites are spread across the 19th-century Grand Hotel, the turreted Villa Silvana and the discrete Chalet Belmont – an independent chalet style property ideal for families and groups.
The 142 rooms and suites are either deluxe or superior and boast soaring windows which bring in the warm mountain sunshine. Plush bedding and rich textiles hint at cozy refinement. Almost all the rooms have a balcony providing the perfect setting for a morning coffee listening to birdsong or an evening aperitif in the fresh Alpine air. The Presidential suite offers views from the terrace and its own private cinema.
Welcoming a fascinating journey through the flavours of the Alps and the cuisines of the world, the four gourmet restaurants and two bars draw culinary diversity rooted in the farm-to-table philosophy. Committed to showcasing the freshest, seasonal ingredients grown in the region, dishes are always beautifully presented to the highest integrity.
The award-winning 3,000 sqm Waldhaus Spa entices guests to while away the hours dipping into soothing poolscapes seamlessly merged in a setting of stone, water, glass and fresh Alpine air. From the indoor pool situated in a striking glass cube to a wraparound heated outdoor pool equipped with bubble loungers, massage jets and dreamy views. The standout feature is the natural swimming pond. In winter, it has an ice hole for guests to bravely plunge! The ‘earth sauna’, a grotto heated by a wood-burning stove provides the perfect place to warm up. Steam rooms of varying temperatures, foot baths, a hammam, two private spas and a modern gym are also amongst the offering.
