A Sustainably Built Ski Resort in Arosa Exuding a Chic Yet Laid-Back Vibe
If you’re looking to take your recycled polyester salopettes on vacation, head to the snow-dusted peaks of Arosa and ski into Switzerland’s sustainably built-and-run Valsana Hotel. The CO2 neutral and Green Globe-certified property is the latest from the Tschuggen Hotel Group and is everything you’d expect of an alpine chalet. It’s hemmed in by pine-flecked forests, glittering lakes and stately summits laced with 225 kilometers of skiable slopes. The architecture and decor take their cues from the great outdoors with oak parquet floors, hand-painted botanical artwork and generous windows and balconies overlooking the unspoiled landscape. Leather armchairs, vintage pieces and a 14th-century French fireplace make the lobby just as cozy as the 40 guest rooms and nine family-size apartments with Aztec throws, kitchenettes and bathtubs.
