While discerning Swiss have been coming to Adelboden in the Bernese Oberland for years, its tucked-away location, at the very end of a mountain road just under three hours and then bus from Zurich, has kept it off the for most. Two valleys over from Gstaad, Adelboden offers an infinitely more authentic slice of Alpine living. It’s the sort of place where the same men who herd their cattle in the summer run the ski-lifts in the winter. The 71-room Cambrian, a haven of low lighting, loungy sofas, beautiful rugs and open , is huddled amid classic Swiss chalets in the centre of the village. It melds stylish, modern design with earthy local materials, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the valley. Highlights include the Just , which uses natural Alpine ingredients in its treatments and has both indoor and outdoor heated pools; the Winter Garden – a cool, cosy drawing-room with spectacular views, ideal for hot chocolate; and for cocktails, Scott’s, which has an ice bar during the winter months. There are also five ski fields catering to all levels of experience on your doorstep.
