Design Hotels Book 2016
Set in the fairytale landscape of Pays d’Enhaut, 1,007 meters above sea level, Hotel de Rougemont is surrounded by majestic pine trees and boasts breathtaking views of the Gstaad Dolomites.
Perched above the picturesque Rougemont, the hotel’s architecture echoes the village’s chalet-only style. The hotel is made up of cluster of five interconnected chalets.
Planning and construction placed great emphasis on the surroundings and the landscape—every window affords stunning views. The 19 bedrooms and 14 suites use clean lines and handpicked natural materials in different ways, giving each room its own character. In each room, natural materials, such as wool, linen, leather, and sumptuous pelts, form a cohesive play of colors and textures that are inspired by nature.
Intricate pieces of oxidized steel art by artist Paolo Albertelli in the suites echo the surrounding landscape and reflect the region’s craft tradition of paper cutting. The bathrooms are uncharacteristically encased in glass, showcasing both contemporary and traditional design.
The hotel’s Alpine brasserie, Le Roc restaurant serves dishes that are innovative as well as traditional and in tune with nature, meaning fresh seasonal ingredients. A cozy lounge with a fireplace, a wine bar with the best Swiss varietals, and a gold-onyx-and-wood- accented bar provide plenty of spaces to relax and mingle.
The luxurious spa, illuminated by numerous candles and black mosaic (in the pool area), offers treatments using Pure Altitude products made from organic alpine plants. A private cinema with plush burgundy seating and anthracite walls bring to mind cinema of yore.
