White Winter Wonderland
Exciting Winter News
Crans-Montana is gearing up for the next Winter Season, a time when the resort really comes into its own. The weather is cooling, fires are being lit, the autumn leaves have turned the mountain sides into landscapes of red, orange and gold and the peaks are already capped with white.
Guarda Golf Hotel & Residences is also taking on its winter colours and preparing to welcome its first winter guests, including those who return every year to experience the wonderful winter wonderland that is our beloved resort.
Guarda Golf Charity Night For UNICEF
With the help of many generous donators, we were able to collect very significant funds for UNICEF during last winter’s charity event and therefore decided to hold a second edition on Saturday 6th February 2016. Today, children all over the world are more in need of our support than ever.
Guarda Golf Charity Night for UNICEF will be again under the patronage and in the presence of our dear friends Sir Roger Moore and Lady Kristina Moore. An auction sale of a painting by our house artists Tylek & Tylecek will help to collect additional funds and participating guests will enjoy exclusive live entertainment and get the chance to win a number of exciting prices at the lucky draw during the night.

Full Moon Nights – Après-Ski & Aperitif
Who needs a better excuse than the full moon for a celebration?
Join us for this exclusive event in celebration of the magic of the full moon between 4pm and 8pm in the beautiful snowy landscape in front of the hotel.
Come directly from the slopes or for an aperitif before dinner and enjoy cocktails, mulled wine and traditional raclette. A magical moment!
Chef Ronan Gaillard and the restaurant team are delighted to offer once again a range of delicacies in the Giardino Restaurant, Les Alpes restaurant, in the Guarda Golf Lounge and on the terrace. Topping the list, our Oysters & Caviar menu with Champagne pairings is a delight, now more than ever with our new house Champagne, Ruinart. We will be bringing back our ever popular truffle menu and, of course, it would not be winter in Switzerland without a selection of local cheese fondues, available in the Les Alpes restaurant.
Warming Spa Days
A day spent warm and cozy in the spa, looking out at the snowy mountains is possibly the most relaxing way to spend your day. Our hotel guests benefit from complimentary access to the Guarda Golf Spa, including our pool, whirlpool, sauna and steam room. Our spa therapists are on hand all day and offer a range of treatments for the hands, feet, face and body.
All are versed in the use of our new oxygen treatments, using the LE CUBE O2+ machine, designed to harness the power of oxygen in a range of skin renewing treatments.
