Aqua Allalin, Saas-Fee
The 5-storey hotel building, constructed to Minergie-Eco standards, is the winner of the Milestone 2014, Tourism Prize of Switzerland and the Watt d’Or 2015, in the category Building and Space.
In an area of 1’900 m2, the Aqua Allalin offers a extensive, state-of-the-art wellness and fitness offer at 1’800 m.a.s.l. Steam bath, Finnish and bio-soft sauna, whirlpool, navel stone, experience showers, Kneipp course, a terrace with a view to the Fee gorge as well as rest and massage rooms invite you to relax.
A new wooden whirlpool was installed in the wellness area.
The planning and execution were a great challenge under the given circumstances. In September 2014, the local community and the Swiss Youth Hostel proudly opened a hostel and its wellness area to the public and future guests.
