Davos, Switzerland – 1 November 2013 – A new landmark hotel is arising in Davos in the Alps. The Intercontinental Davos with its spectacular facade and anything but usual form will be opened in December. The landmark hotel offers 216 rooms and suits and already drew attraction during the planning and construction phase of the 790 gold-colored steel elements on the exterior façade. This is one out of 69 partly outstanding hotel construction projects in Switzerland (with 9.392 rooms in total), as TOPHOTELPROJECTS (www.tophotelprojects.com), the leading provider of hotel construction project information announces. In its neighbor country Austria 40 new hotels and resorts with 5.632 rooms in total will be opened in the next years.
The Intercontinental Davos – consulted by Feuring Hotelconsulting – is going to surpass the first mountain resort hotel run by the InterContinental Hotels Group in Berchtesgaden Bavaria. On the top floor, guests will find an innovative restaurant concept of gourmet class with a panoramic terrace with views of the surrounding Bündner Alps and Davos.
The Alpine brasserie “Capricorn” offers specialties from the entire Alpine region. The “Matsu” is a little more adventurous. In this modern parlor Japanese cuisine is combined with alpine cuisine – Fondue, Shabu shabu and more specialties are served. The swiss alpine lifestyle is also embodied by the 1.200 square-foot “Alpine Spa” with indoor and outdoor pool. This spa concept is based on alpine “rocks and herbs”. Modern design of natural rocks meets a touch of gold with mountain herbs applications.
Great importance for Davos also are big conference areas. Davos is the location where the annually held world economic forum takes place. The new InterConti will offer meeting spaces of 1.500 square foot in total, of course equipped with highly modern Multimedia – and Conference technology.
Besides this outstanding project in Davos another landmark hotel will be opened in the winter season of 2013/2014: The Priva Alpine Lodge located in Lenzerheide will offer 96 luxurious equipped apartments and chalets located in 13 buildings with a total of 465 beds combined with an extensive infrastructure of innovative gastronomy, kids club, private sauna and fireplace. Guest can choose whether they wish to be fully served in the “Catered Lodge” or prefer self-catering. All 13 facilities are connected to each other via an underground car park. Despite the considerable size, the luxurious resort complex with reception, restaurant, kiosk, swimming pool and spa complex, fitness, childcare and village square, is well embedded in the natural surroundings.
The Alpine architecture of the “village”, influenced by the Graubündner building culture, with its use of authentic materials such as stone and wood continues in the dignified equipment of the apartments. The central location in close connection to the base station Rothorn and with direct access to the slopes is very comfortable for future hotel guests.
Nevertheless the hotel and resort complex not only aims for a high capacity occupancy in the winter season, but also wants to benefit from the uprising summer tourism region Lenzerheide.
