Sunstar is a small chain of Swiss hotels, which is all about helping you experience the joy of life in the mountains. You’ll find Sunstar hotels in popular resorts along the Swiss Alps, from Zermatt in the south west of the country to Klosters in the east. And just as there’s more than one way to enjoy the mountains in Switzerland, Sunstar hotels offer several kinds of accommodation to suit different styles and budgets. In Valais, you can choose from the Sunstar Boutique and Sunstar Style brands to help make your trip to the region really special.
A Traditional Swiss Welcome
Stepping into a Sunstar hotel, you’ll be greeted with the kind of friendly hospitality that has helped make these alpine communities world famous. Historic, chalet-style buildings enjoy views across beautiful mountains like the Great Aletsch Glacier, the longest glacier in the Alps, and the world-famous Matterhorn. You can stay in the heart of the mountains in double or family rooms or suites, and to set you up for the day you’ll also benefit from a generous breakfast buffet, pool, sauna and spa facilities. If you’re in Valais on business, you could take advantage of the handy meeting and events packages available at Sunstar hotels.
Things to Do in Valais
During mountain railways, cable cars and gondolas make the world-renowned slopes of Valais very easy to access. For great family and beginner skiing and snowboarding slopes, head to Bellwald and Aletsch Arena, and if you’re looking for something more challenging, make your way to 4 Vallees with its 64 miles of black runs. For some more sedate snow fun, try the six miles of cross-country skiing in Zeneggen or book up for a forest snow-shoeing tour in La Tzoumaz. Look out for the more unusual ways to enjoy the snow, too. Snow kiting, snow tubing and ski jöring, which involves being pulled along on skis by a horse, are all good fun. In the summer months, head out from your hotel to explore hundreds of miles of mountain-biking and hiking trails through the stunning landscapes. The Alps has gorges, glaciers, lakes, caves and ice grottos – all within easy reach of your Sunstar hotel.
