Ferienart Resort & Spa

Ferienart Resort & Spa is located in the heart of the car-free village of Saas-Fee in Switzerland. The foundation walls of the hotel go back more than 130 years in the history of Saas Fee:

  • In 1883 the present-day Ferienart Resort & Spa was opened as the second hotel in Saas-Fee under the name "Grand Hotel Belle Vue".
  • In the 1950s, the hotel was named "Walliserhof" - at the same time as the new road to Saas Fee was opened, which brought about a major boost in the local development of tourism.  
  • In May 1976, the "Hotel Walliserhof" fell victim to a great fire and burned to the ground.  
  • In 1978 the brothers Erwin and Albert Anthamatten together with their cousin Daniel Zurbriggen acquired the property. In 1982, after long negotiations, they received the permission to erect a new building which was reopened in July 1983 under the same name.
  • In 1989 the "Hotel Walliserhof" became the "Ferienart Walliserhof".  
  • In 1992, the first beauty salon, the wine shop and an Asian restaurant "Le Mandarin" opened.
  • In 2000/2001 the "Rainbow" outbuilding with an event hall and large spa area was - and thus also the first Minergie Hotel in Switzerland.  
  • In 2002 the hotel was renamed "Ferienart Resort & Spa" and was awarded its 5th star. 
  • From 2014 until August 2018 Stefanie Gärtner and Josef Planzer have been the directors fo the privately owned hotel.
  • In 2017 the hotel was bought through a new owner. The new owner will gradually renovate the hotel in the next 1 1/2 years in close collaboration with the new Director Thorsten Fink.
