Some traditional, some unconventional, but always with the aim of providing a unique experience. And a few old familiar favourites, too, because those things can also make us happy.
The atmosphere in the spa at the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof reflects the world of the Alps. The Alpine spa landscape includes a pool, whirlpool, sauna area with a hot air sauna, steam bath, Alpine and ice grottos, and a private couples’ spa.
