Nestled amid towering pines, Lenkerhof Gourmet Spa Resort sits at the foot of the Wildstrubel massif. Apres-ski drinks can be enjoyed in front of an open fire at the lounge bar or on the large terrace, in the fresh mountain air. Before dinner, guests can head to the cosy wine cellar to select a bottle to accompany their evening meal. Foodies will be spoilt for choice at Lenkerhof: light dishes infused with regional and international flavours are served at the main restaurant, Spettacolo; a feast of Mediterranean specialities awaits at Restaurant Oh de Vie; while Swiss flavours can be savoured on Restaurant Bühlberg’s sun terrace.

After a day on the slopes, guests of the Lenkerhof can soothe their aching muscles and weary feet at the hotel’s 7sources beauty & spa, named after the number of springs that feed the Simme River — the spa is home to one of the oldest and best-known sulphur sources in Switzerland. No fewer than seven sauna options are available to guests in what’s one of the largest spas in Switzerland. The experience at the sauna complex for spa-goers ranges from a sulphur grotto to a herbal sauna and rock oil sauna, while an outdoor pool is filled with warm water drawn from the sulphur spring — renowned for its healing properties. Elsewhere, there’s a sports pool; bio sauna, which includes light therapy; Finnish sauna; ladies’ sauna; steam bath; and an ice grotto.

On the spa menu are a range of facial and body treatments using local products, including a massage using heated river stones and mountain crystals, and a body scrub incorporating a mixture of hay and sand plucked from the Simme. If the outdoor sports and fitness park haven’t sated guests’ appetite for exercise, there’s also a gym and an indoor pool.

For younger travellers, a handful of play areas and a Wet’n’ Wild section provide entertainment, while a dedicated restaurant and tailored spa treatments — think a nourishing hand soak and manicure, or teen facial — ensure kids and even the stroppiest teenagers are catered for.
