Hike, Spa & Yoga in the Swiss Alps!

Surrounded by stunning alpine scenery and spectacular hiking trails, step into your peak season of health and fitness with a revitalizing week of yoga and meditation — and enjoy luxurious spa services, gourmet cuisine—or add altitude and adventure—with hiking, biking, paragliding or even heli-sightseeing!

 

Flow of a day

Morning

Start your health-filled day with deep breaths of fresh mountain air at our morning Hatha yoga class and mindfulness meditation session. Joining us from Dublin, our teacher Sylvia Ferguson leads us in a yoga flow that accommodates all levels, while soothing, centering and improving focus. As always, we emphasize safety, awareness and intelligence. Afterward, we enjoy a healthy brunch in the resort restaurant to prepare you for a day of hiking—or simply for spa time and utter relaxation!

Afternoon

Create your own alpine adventure, whether it’s exploring one of the area’s stunning hiking trails, soaring above the mountains in a paraglider or living it up at “The Beach,” our resort’s summer-only outdoor lounge. Indoors, you can unwind at the hotel’s 800-square-meter spa, which offers the latest beauty and detoxification therapies. Or you can simply lounge by the pool, read a book and enjoy the view down the green valley. In the late afternoon, we reconvene for a second yoga and meditation session with Sylvia, this time focusing on restorative poses, pranayama and yoga nidra, to bring you to a perfect state of relaxation.

Evening

Enjoy an aperitif as the sun sets over the snow-capped peaks, then sit down to a menu of delicious healthy Swiss and Mediterranean food and great company! After dinner, take a stroll around the picture-perfect town or watch the stars from the hotel terrace. Or stay in and chat by the fire, or climb into bed early with a book. Our retreats provide the perfect setting for you to relax, rejuvenate and be inspired—however you prefer it!

 

5-Star luxury in Verbier

One of Europe’s finest ski destinations, the quiet-cool village of Verbier is also a beautiful summer getaway, with green hillsides and snow-capped peaks almost close enough to touch. Long summer days give ample time for hiking, exploring the town, enjoying a massage—and for those yearning for a thrill, you can paraglide off the mountain peaks! Evening temperatures are perfect for a cozy drink by the fire back at the resort. Our hotel, The W Verbier, is a daring contemporary design where serenity meets sophistication. Offering single, shared and couple’s accommodation, our dining package includes an amazing brunch buffet and a healthy gourmet dinner prepared by chef Sergi Arola — with a glass of wine, naturally. On our last night we enjoy a special meal out on the town in Verbier!
