You’d think staying at a palace would mean getting the royal treatmentbeing fanned off and fed grapes all day by a glistening pool. Not at Gstaad Palace. This summer, participating in their ‘Palace-Style Boot Camp’ might mean eating grapes, but only if you can lift an arm to your mouth after pushing your body beyond its physical limits. At least this butt kicking takes place in the Swiss Alps, right?

Ah, Gstaad. Maybe you too have fond memories of swooshing down the mountainside, hiking in the hills, sipping on Glühwein or hot chocolate, and eating fresh raclette cheese. It’s all good. But now, it's even better because for the first time in about 100 years, there’s a new luxe hotel opening: The Alpina Gstaad.
This 56-room Preferred Hotel is a real beauty -- think big stone fireplaces, pine interiors, cozy nooks, timber peaked ceilings and spectacular views of the Alps. No two rooms are exactly alike and, although beautifully-designed, also have plenty of quirk (just wait until you see the cowbell bedside lamps!)
