Blessed with some of the world’s purest air, 300 days of sunshine a year and breathtaking mountain scenery, Crans-Montana’s assets are as clear as its mountain streams. It’s no surprise, therefore, that the small resort in southern Switzerland is home to one of the country’s most exclusive retreats. A peaceful getaway set in the heart of the Alps, Guarda Golf Hotel & Residences is the ultimate place to relax, recharge and take full advantage of this spectacular corner of the mountains.

Twenty-five sumptuously styled rooms and suites seamlessly blend the warmth of Alpine chalet living with all the modern comforts of a five-star hotel. Elsewhere, tuck into classic international dishes fireside, or breathe in the fresh air on the resort’s terrace. Mizuki by Kakinuma also serves up the finest Japanese cuisine, although the spectacular south-facing views will vie for attention at the table.

Golfers can head straight for the stunning golf course with a backdrop of snowy peaks smothered with pine trees. Guests can tee off on a nine-or an 18-hole course — both rewarding players with stunningly beautiful views on every fairway and green.

For an extra helping of R&R, guests should check in to the Guarda Golf Spa — a wealth of luxurious treatments are on hand to cater for every need, adding a dash of indulgence to any stay. First-class facilities, including a hammam and a couples’ room, set the scene for the expert care available: from oxygen-based beauty treatments to reflexology, the inviting space is a must for anyone wanting to recalibrate the balance between mind and body. Products from top names in the world of beauty and cosmetics can also be enjoyed, including those of celebrated cosmetic surgeon Ivo Pitanguy and pioneering Parisian label Biologique Recherche.

A go-to destination in winter and summer, Guarda Golf’s varied activities will whet every kind of traveller’s appetite. Guests can hit the legendary slopes come winter, experience the heady scent of summer pine in the forests, and discover all Crans-Montana and the surrounding area has to offer: from museums and boutiques to vineyards.
