About Saas Fee

Until the 1950s the gorgeous amphitheatre of thirteen peaks and nine glaciers which surround Saas Fee kept out all but locals and their mules. The ring of peaks still keeps cars out, but in the last decade or so modern chalets have surrounded the traditional wooden heart of Saas Fee, drawn by the extended ski season which can last up to ten months of the year. Less developed than Zermatt, its closest neighbour, some of the best places to stay in Saas Fee are smaller complexes.

Things not to miss:

  • One of the highlights of Saas Fee is the view. Just wandering around town is a many varied pleasure, with so many dramatic peaks for your eyes to choose between. If you want to change position, take a gondola up to Allalin at the top of the resort and look down - possibly from the revolving restaurant.
  • The dramatic scenery might look intimidating for folks new to skiing, but it needn't, Saas Fee's quiet nursery slopes are aside from the main action, so a good spot for gaining confidence. Once you've found your ski legs there are a good selection of gentle blue runs to inspire you. Intermediate skiers get a great deal too, some excellent top-to-bottom runs descending from 3,500metres to the resort at 1,800metres.
  • There's not as much for advanced skiers due to the glaciers surrounding the resort which tend to limit too much off-piste exploration. But during summer some of the glaciers become ski or snowboarding runs in their own right.
  • Non-skiers get a good deal at Saas Fee too. There's a whole mountain devoted to other mountain games, including tobogganing, sledging, snow tubing and paragliding. The Snowboard Park has a good reputation.

Our selection of the best places to stay in Saas Fee range from traditional skiing hotels to luxury intimate chalets.

For a good value stay

  • Saas Fee can be quite expensive, but it doesn't have to be. The excellent Hotel Schweizerhof, for example, offers a half board option which includes a six course dinner! This is a comfortable, family-run hotel in the centre of town, with a balcony for all - the view is always going to be a highlight, however nice the contemporary decor and spa facilities.

For a lively stay

  • The Dom Hotel doesn't shy away from embracing the party atmosphere that the skiing in Saas-Fee attracts. Boasting a chic, modern aesthetic, the hotel offers comfortable rooms and an atmospheric bar that hosts both live music and DJ performances.

For Families

  • Reflecting its alpine surrounds, the wood accented Hotel Allalin is perfect for family skiing trips. With generously sized family suites, a good restaurant and nearby ski access, it's ideal for a family adventure in Saas Fee.
  • Elite Alpine Lodge is a great option for families looking to rent out a self-catering apartment. Made up of nine stylish apartments, the hotel also boasts an excellent spa and fantastic views of the surrounding alpine landscape.

For luxury on the slopes

  • Retreat from a long day on the slopes to the luxurious hospitality of the Hotel Annahof. Featuring plush rooms, a deluxe indoor-outdoor spa and an excellent restaurant, it's a stellar hotel.
  • Combining an elegant aesthetic with luxury design, The Capra is a stand out hotel. Dust yourself off after a day on the slopes and enter a world of splendour with superb suites, a deluxe spa and heavenly cuisine.

For Alpine Intimacy

  • Sometimes escaping the crowds at a ski resort can be hard but Waldhotel Fletschhorn gives you the perfect opportunity to do that. Luxurious rooms with stunning views, a sublime Michelin starred restaurant and a peaceful location all combine to create a magnificent hotel.

For Alpine relaxation

  • Whether your looking to ski or simply relax, the Hotel Pirmin Zurbriggen is great for either, or equally both. The notion of wellness pervades throughout the hotel with beautifully appointed rooms, a wonderful spa and a superb restaurant. Alpine bliss.
