About Laax

Laax is part of the ski area called the Weisse Arena, a high altitude region known for being snow-sure, with a lively après-ski and perfect for snowboarders looking for big air. The nearby resort towns of Flims and Falera are the other places to stay to enjoy the Weisse Arena, but if you’re looking for contemporary cool then Laax is probably for you. A couple of years ago all of our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Laax would have been fairly traditional alpine hotels - great options with lots of lovely detail, now found largely in Laax Dorf, the original village. But in the last few years several new hotels have been built, much closer to the lift base, with a much more modern, high-design-y feel. So now there’s more choice for you if your idea of the best places to stay in Laax run more toward the modern.

If you’re looking for charm then Laax Dorf is for you, it’s set on a pretty lake and feels pleasantly rustic. In summer Laax, with its impressive mountain views, and open meadows surrounding the town, is a very popular spot for well-heeled Swiss and German families. The lakes here are glacial, but that doesn’t stop people swimming and going boating or out in pedalos! Laax is also an amazing place for hikers and climbers.

In Winter Laax is a good option if you’re looking for a Swiss resort with good snow and lively après-ski - it’s especially lively during January when it hosts the European Snowboarding Open. But don't forget that best places to stay in Laax will be extremely busy too. So if you want to be sure of a room, book well ahead.
