The small village of Vals in the Kanton Graubünden is not only on of the most beautiful retreats in the Bündner Alps, but also the home of one of Switzerland’s most exciting hotel ensembles. The famous thermal spring, built of 60,000 quartz block, built by Pritzker award winner Peter Zumthor is part of the three hotels.
The luxurious 7132 Hotel is the figurehead of the ensemble. After a complete renovation of the old spa building it was opened in its current shape in 2017. It is marked by clear, contemporary design in which light colors and noble, natural materials dominate. Every room has a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains. The top floor of the five star hotel awaits guests with three 90 square meter penthouse suites that were designed by Japanese star architect Kengo Kuma.
The 7132 Silver is the culinary heart of the hotel, a gourmet restaurant with two Michelin stars and 18 Gault&Millau-points under the aegis of chef Mitja Birlo. Treasures from the Vals mountains such as mushrooms, herbs or berries are combined with lobster, caviar or local ducks to exciting eight-course surprise menus. The Chef’s Table promises a special experience: Up to eight people can be seated at the table located in the middle of the kitchen and giving exclusive views of the culinary work of Mitja Birlos and his team.
A unique interplay of architecture and nature in the Swiss Alps
