The wow factor: Hide Hotel Flims offers an Alpine resort with a contemporary twist
Hide Hotel Flims, the stylish new hotel and resort in the Swiss Alps, brings modern comfort and convenience to the ski chalet.
‘Tis the ski season, and every week there is a new offering hitting the slopes for travelers who are keen to get out and about in the snow, and looking for somewhere cosy to recover after shooting down the pistes.
The Hide Hotel Flims gives guests exactly what they are looking for in sleek, sophisticated and snowy surrounding.
Lifestyle hotel in the middle of the Swiss Alps
Skiers know what to expect in terms of accommodation when they go to a ski resort – Alpine-esque architecture, basic services and a place to lay your head.
But the modern traveler wants more, and discerning ski tourists deserve it.
After a long, hard day out on the slopes, knowing there is somewhere private and comfortable to come home to can mean the difference between a good holiday and a great one, but having a stylishly designed, thoughtfully crafted and beautifully executed ski resort to top off your day can make a ski holiday incredible.
That’s the aim of the new Hide Hotel Flims, a quasi-lifestyle ski resort located in the Swiss Alps.
Adventure in the Alps
The Hide Hotel Flims forms part of the Stenna Flims complex, a ski resort which gives guests premium access to 224 km of slopes and four ski parks, which are accessed by 28 ski lifts.
The hotel has been designed as a ski in/ski out complex, and car/guest access is separated, allowing each to enter the hotel directly at different levels.
The new complex is spread over four floors, and is a contemporary structure conceived of in horizontal planes, which zig-zag across in bands across the facade, while simultaneously blending into the surrounding landscape because of its low-lying nature.
Artistic and creative design
The hotel’s design is a stark departure from the ski chalets of old.
The architecture is designed by Baumschlager Eberle, with interiors and room dressing by award-winning hospitality designer Erik Nissen Johansen, the man behind Stylt Trampoli.
The 47-key property takes full advantage of the incredible setting, with outdoor roof terraces leading off each room allowing guests to marvel at the panoramic views of the mountains and peaks beyond.
The guest rooms themselves are lively and vibrant, with eccentric timber wall panelling or feature wallpaper bringing life to the rooms.
Artists Bane&Pest were tasked with decorating the double height entrance lobby, where guests can also have a sneak peek into the glass dry-ageing counter, which is used to cure the beef that is used in the hotel’s gourmet restaurant, headed up by Swiss chef Adrian Tschanz.
