The Capra, a Luxury Boutique Five-Star Wellness Hotel in Saas-Fee
The Capra is an intimate five-star, alpine luxury boutique lodge in a spectacular natural setting. There’s nowhere else in the world where so many 4,000 metre peaks are visible at a single glance. The car-free Swiss ski resort of Saas-Fee is a favourite among winter sports connoisseurs for its long ski season, guaranteed high-quality snow, and authentic charm.
Combining the cosiness of a chalet with the comforts of a luxury hotel, The Capra’s understated elegance is inspired by the pure intensity of the alpine scenery. Expansive suites in warm earth tones have panoramic views of snow-frosted peaks, pristine valleys, and wide-open skies. The Capra is the ultimate place to relax, recharge, and reconnect with nature.
The fire-lit lounge, snug library, and delightful spa are designed to soothe your senses after a day of exhilarating alpine activities. Even more indulgent is the wholesome, farm-to-table cuisine found in our restaurant.
The Capra has converted a traditional barn to a ski-in ski-out cabin that allows for carefree access to the ski pistes.
The Capra’s warm atmosphere is designed to complement the traditional village setting and dramatic alpine landscape.
Soothing colours, organic materials, and rich textures are inspired by nature – wood-panelled walls, brushed tweeds, stone bathrooms. Glowing log fires are reflected in crystal ceiling lights, evocative of the sparkling glaciers framed in floor-to-ceiling windows.
The design of the hotel has been undertaken by a group of Swiss architects complemented by UK interior design management team, with a focus on fusing the alpine traditional character with modern luxury. All the furnishing has been designed bespoke, specifically for The Capra. The lighting concept was designed by leading Swiss design team and is based on the theme “fire and ice”, in harmony with the contrasting environment ensuring to enhance the relaxed atmosphere of the hotel.
Traditional elements are seamlessly combined with the latest technology, from under-floor heating to wireless entertainment systems. The result is a timeless classic that captures the relaxed spirit of chalet luxury.
