Interiors adopt references to the rawness of the Alps softened with a playful mid-century buoyance.

Intro

The cool cat of the Alps, The Hide Hotel & Spa is a year-round suave lair of modern Alpine design perched like a sleek penthouse above the ski resort of Flims. A re-thought mountain resort that flirts with the cosy traditions of the Alps paired with a narrative of fresh design tones, botanicals and natural materials; The Hide Hotel fuses progressive Alpinist interiors with voguish sophistication. 

The notion of modern mountain escapism is immediate – a distinctive architectural design that cleverly binds a vernacular of curved white concrete and large oversized glass creating the statement façade. The seductive form reflects the traditional tiered terraces of the slopes, The Hide is sleek, adopting the Alpine topography that surrounds it. Inside this modernist lair, the lobby is a series of open fluid spaces that play host to the lounge, the focal hub. Crackling fireplaces, a snug library and a canopy of deep velvet sofas, bucket swivel stools and wooden fur-clad benches make for perfect socialising. The Garden Sun Terrace skirts the eye-candy vistas - complete with a resident DJ, and the 1,000m² Spa is a cocoon of holistic fun. 

Interiors adopt references to the rawness of the Alps softened with a playful mid-century buoyance. Orchestrating the penthouse design of The Hide Hotel is Sweden’s award-winning architectural, design and creative agency Stylt Trampoli AB – aka artist and visionary, Erik Nissen Johansen. The gurus of imaginative design, they have a strong penchant for modern Alpine living and master the usage of raw materials in their natural state, dressing the finished interiors with refined textiles and layers of comfort that warm the soul. 

Design favourites sourced from the likes of: Sängar, Designers Choice, Gervasoni, International Textil, Miró Miró, Örsjö, Milla Design, Delius, Casa Rosa/ Kirkby, Trapiche & Co, Bankeryd/Pholc, JAB, Globo, Tapwell, MYSON, Aliseo, Cosmic and Vega join forces to deck The Hide Hotel in designer sophistication.  The bedrooms and suites show mastery in binding the traditional with modernity in creating a habitat on the edge of funky, whilst giving Alpine heritage a well-deserved hug.  Glass, raw stone, intricate metalwork, fine wicker panels and exquisite full-length wooden marquetry are softened by rich velvets of dusted pinks, mustard and botanical verts – a designer cocoon for Hästens beds and smart lighting.

This is your cultured mountain resort for the whole family with outdoor pursuits geared to both the winter habitat for the ski fraternity and the hiking junkies of summer, this all-year-round hotspot is a modern Alpine legend of polished sophistication and just enough ‘urban’ to keep things cool.
