As The Alpina Gstaad celebrates its seventh winter season on 7 December 2018, The Six Senses Spa at The Alpina Gstaad is delighted to introduce a number of holistic wellness programmes in conjunction with Gstaad’s “come up slow down” philosophy to address everyday concerns both emotional and physical.

Guests will bathe in the sounds and vibrations of a gong, singing bowls and crystal tuning forks before a balancing therapy in the Spa’s specially designed colour room. During the treatment, the guest’s dominant and complementary colour will be identified and applied to restore energy and harmonise the body. The programme also includes a cleansing rose petal and garnet body scrub, an ila Kundalini back massage to balance the nervous system, as well as Tibetan yoga with a nine cycle breathing purification practice to cleanse the three main channels associated with colours and emotions.
This three night package starts from CHF 3,345pp in a Deluxe Room Schönried, on single-occupancy.
