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.
