The Capra opened in 2014, in the process instantly becoming the number one hotel in the charming high altitude resort of Saas-Fee.
In keeping with the pretty town centre aesthetic of wooden buildings, The Capra resembles an elegant chalet, but one that happens to house 24 extremely comfortable and contemporary rooms and suites, all of which have private balconies for serious views of the surrounding ring of 12,000ft peaks. The suites also come with pull out beds so can cater for families.
Dine in the Brasserie where the hotel's kitchen team spoil guests with locally sourced foods, combining sustainability and gastronomy and following a careful holistic and wellness approach. The hotel also hosts a number of five-course fine dining experiences with wine pairing - held in their intimate wine cellar.
Cosier still is the Bar & Lounge where guests can order less formal fare or enjoy a drink from the extensive list of spirits, fine Swiss wines (definitely not an oxymoron) and craft beers while sitting beside a roaring fire.
Elsewhere, the elegant wood and slate-clad Capra Spa has a steam room, sauna, plunge pool and treatment room where skiers can enjoy an après-ski massage for tired muscles.
The Capra has converted a lovely traditional barn into a ski-in, ski-out place for guests to keep their skis so they don't have to lug them back to the hotel.
