A tiny village, Vals is the antidote to large-scale tourism, providing the opportunity to engage with luxury Swiss mountain life, off the beaten track. Trek through Alpine forests, bathe in the natural 30-degree thermal springs, go cross-country skiing, dine on local organic ingredients and swim in clear mountain lakes — all 1250 metres above sea level. And do visit the quaint village square, whose houses have roofs lined with stone tiles made of regional quartzite. Vals exudes elegance and authenticity and is an ideal stop-off on the Big Walser Trail.
7132’s rooms have been designed by world-leading architects; for the ultimate experience stay in the Penthouse Suite by Kengo Kuma and try to get a peek at as many of the other rooms as you can. The 7132 Silver Restaurant by Sven Wassmer has been awarded two Michelin stars and 18 Gault&Millau points and serves nine-course dinners. 7132 DaPapà offers a menu of pizza and pasta, while the 7132 Red Restaurant is a casual dining room. Do take a dip in the 7132 Thermal Baths and if you’re celebrating a special event, why not book a trip in the hotel’s own helicopter, accompanied by some Cristal champagne?
