The Hide Hotel Flims due to open this winter
This December, the picturesque Swiss village of Flims will play host to a modern Alpine retreat in the form of The Hide Hotel Flims. Located amid 235 kilometers of pistes in the eastern region of the Swiss Alps, the 47-room property will attract customers looking for some mountain magic. Guests can expect not only a good dose of winter and summer thrills, but also a deli, a restaurant, a spa, an outdoor terrace with views of the slopes, and a fully-fledged kids centre.
|Inside, the hotel’s rooms and public areas have been conceived by Erik Nissen Johansen of the firm Stylt Trampoli AB, a Norwegian visionary and artist with a passion for engaging design experiences that focus on storytelling. A living room lobby greets guests, fitted with a fireplace, lounge, bar, and library with ample cosy nooks. Not forgetting about the younger mountaineers, a 2,000 square-metre ‘Kindercity’ boasts chocolate and bread workshops, exhibitions, a dinosaur workshop, a robotics lab, a driving school, and professional childcare.
Flims is a rare Alpine resort, a place that retains a village feel while still catering to an international crowd seeking supreme powder, mountain biking for all levels, and spectacular hiking conditions. And after the thrills have been sought, a boutique cinema with four rooms, world-class shopping, and a 1,000 square-metre spa beckon, all in the setting of a relaxed refuge.
