I wanted to write this post long time ago, when I came back from my last vacations.
I wanted because I think it is time to share some impressions and a good address.
For the second time, I went to Saas-Almagell, a little town in the “Haut-Valais” from where the multiple world and Olympic ski champion Pirmin Zurbriggen come. It is near Saas-Fee. There, I went to his hotel. It is a wellness hotel like many of others you can find in the Alps or in Switzerland, and maybe not only where snow does not come as much as some years ago. Most of these hotels had to take a decision on how to keep their customers. I have absolutely nothing against this change and if it was the case for the Pirmin’s hotel, I would say they did it very well (they are celebrating the 40 years of the hotel).
Around the hotel, there are a lot of excursions you can do. You can go to see the Mattmark dam, or you can go to Saas-Fee, even by foot. Count 1 hour in such case, but it is a beautiful and pleasant journey. From Saas-Fee, you can also take a telecabine to go on the glacier.
They have several kind of accommodation, from the single room to the little apartment. Having tested first the apartment and then the room, both are of very good quality and quite big for the apartment. In the hotel, there is a spa and a pool with very nice warm water…. You have also the possibility to have an hair cut, to be massaged or going to a sauna, all of them being available within the hotel.
On the food side, it is excellent and sometimes a little bit too much in terms of quantity. You always have a starter, a soup, the main course and a dessert. And you really have enough to eat.
And, last but not least, the welcome is great. People are keen to make you happy and making you to keep a great souvenir of that place. Nowadays, that is not very often the case we should say….
So, if I can recommend a good place to go for your vacation, please visit the web site of the hotel.
