Grand Hôtel du Golf & Palace
The 5* Grand Hôtel du Golf & Palace meets even the most demanding requirements. The luxurious hotel in alpine and elegant style leaves nothing to be desired. 3 restaurants, a large spa with heated indoor pool, fitness centre and various wellness and beauty offers make your stay a pleasant experience.
Saas-Almagell and Saas-Fee
A special and corona-compliant culinary experience is a fondue party in a gondola. A great idea as soon as the Corona measures allow it again. Whether as a couple or with the family, a fondue in the gondola with a view of the snow-covered mountains and the romantically illuminated Saas-Fee is one of the most extraordinary winter experiences. And best of all: the fondue gondola is in operation until mid-April 2021.
Of course, there is also something on offer for sports enthusiasts in the region. 112 kilometres of slopes and fantastic views await snow-hungry skiers.
