To enter the new Alpina Gstaad (+41.33.888.9888, www.thealpinagstaad.ch), guests walk through a gallery constructed from Ringgenberg stone that took five craftsmen four years to hand-chisel. Reaching the Swiss Alps property’s light-filled lobby, new arrivals check in to one of 56 HBA-designed accommodations outfitted with leathers, silks, and hand-painted antique armoires. The $337 million resort, which opened in December in the posh ski town of Gstaad, also features a cigar room, a movie theater, a wine room, and a 21,500-square-foot Six Senses Spa with a skylit pool grotto, a salt room, and a hammam. Dinner options include the Japanese hotspot Megu, the contemporary Restaurant Sommet, and the traditional-Swiss Stubli. ($900–$22,525)
