The epic splendour of the Swiss Alps is the perfect setting for the luxurious wellness haven of LeCrans Hotel & Spa
Few experiences are more restorative than wandering amid grassy alpine slopes flecked with aromatic pines, wildflowers and cool mountain streams. Or meandering through soft snow, the crisp air causing cheeks to glow and minds to clear. Such moments are plentiful in the landscape surrounding LeCrans Hotel & Spa, a wellness haven of refined warmth, tranquillity and discerning care nestled in the heart of the Swiss Alps.
Perched above the picturesque town of Crans-Montana in the Valais region, the hotel is surrounded on three sides by tall pines – the first layer of a luxurious cocoon afforded by the handsomely timbered hotel – with the remaining aspect open to stunning mountain vistas, ribboned with ski slopes in winter and festooned with flowers in summer. The area is a vibrant hub of outdoor activities for all the family, but any excess exhilaration – and stress – dissipates on arrival at the hotel and is replaced with an unrivalled sense of serenity.
With a curated set of 13 suites and one apartment, the LeCrans team are able to provide guests with a completely unique service, centred around their wellness. Two panoramic, heated indoor and outdoor pools, and spa facilities that include a sauna, hammam, Jacuzzi and fitness suite, are the perfect setting for LeCrans’ expertly curated programmes of professional aesthetic and healthcare treatments, which offer a natural, holistic approach to detoxification, recovery, rejuvenation and replenishment: the treatments help guests realign with their natural energy patterns, so they feel happier and healthier as a result.
Alongside this is the hotel’s Michelin-starred LeMontBlanc, which provides “a healthy menu that ties in with the ethos of LeCrans in terms of low food miles, organic produce and seasonal fare,” says Chef Yannick Crepaux, who heads up the restaurant and is renowned for his refined, avant-garde take on traditional French-style cuisine. There is also an extensive wine cellar and bar, with the finest regional and international wines.
The team at LeCrans have curated a sublime sense of wellbeing alongside the peaceful backdrop of intimate guest spaces that seamlessly pair luxe with landscape. The cosy suites draw influence from mountainous regions around the world, and most come with a breathtaking alpine outlook. Here, nature and nurture are at the heart of an unforgettable guest experience.
