The Capra combines the warm cosiness of a chalet with the comforts of a luxury hotel.

Alpine Luxury Boutique Lodge in Saas Fee

Motivated by the desire to escape the hectic life of the city and their love for the mountains, a few years ago, the owners of The Capra set out to find a new home where they could reconnect with nature and spend time with family and friends. After a long search for the perfect location, they found the ideal, pristine setting in the quaint village of Saas-fee in the Swiss Alps.

Instead of building a house, the owners decided to expand their vision in order to share their experience with other like-minded people. To do so, they converted a small Swiss hotel into a luxury alpine hotel that blends the charm of tradition with modern design.

As well as transforming the hotel’s aesthetics, the owners have incorporated the healthy lifestyle synonymous with Swiss living, emphasizing the “getting back to nature” ethos of the Saas Valley.

The Capra’s name is inspired by the Latin word for mountain goat and by the black-and-white goats that roam the valleys and peaks around Saas-Fee.

Unique to the Valais region, these adventurous creatures reflect the hotel’s authentic sense of respect for nature and the environment. The two-tone goats visually embody the yin yang – a holistic harmony between man and nature, body and mind, which is the hallmark of The Capra.

The result is a timeless classic that captures the relaxed spirit of chalet luxury.

The Capra’s warm atmosphere complements the traditional village setting and dramatic alpine landscape of Switzerland. Wood-panelled walls, brushed tweeds, and stone bathrooms reflect nature’s colours and textures.  Glowing log fires are reflected in crystal ceiling lights, evocative of the sparkling glaciers that are framed in the hotel’s floor-to-ceiling windows.

The design of the hotel was undertaken by a group of Swiss architects complemented by a British interior design team with a focus on fusing alpine traditional character with modern luxury.  All the furnishings are bespoke, specifically for The Capra. The lighting concept follows the theme of “fire and ice”, creating a contrast that enhances the relaxed atmosphere of the hotel.

The result is a timeless classic that captures the relaxed spirit of chalet luxury.
