Winter In The Mountains – A Stay at Peaks Place In Laax
Escape to the Mountains and Ski in Laax
If you love being in the mountains and are looking for great places to stay where you can enjoy both skiing as well as apres ski and other mountain pursuits, we’ve made a great discovery. We went for a mini break at Peaks Pace in Laax shortly before Christmas and were able to enjoy some quality time in the beautiful Swiss mountains in Laax. Peaks Place is conveniently located not far from the Laax telecabine and cablecar and has a free shuttle bus which takes you directly there so that you can easily reach the slopes. As well as skiing and snowboarding there are countless other offerings available too.
Spa and Wellness at Peaks Palace Wellness
If you’re looking for total relaxation the spa facilities at Peaks Place offer a complete wellness oasis. The La Senda Spa covers an area of 850 sq metres with sauna, steam and relaxation rooms.
They also offer a range of treatments and massages to allow you to well and truly relax and recharge your batteries.
The fully equipped gym with all the latest fitness equipment allows you to keep in shape during your stay.
Peaks Place Laax Apart Hotel
Peaks Place is not a hotel, but an “apart hotel” – so you have your own kitchen and dining area which is all kitted out with all th appliances you need for self catering. The well designed modern apartments have a spacious living area, large balconies and everything you need for a comfortable stay. As well as a dining table and chairs, there are armchairs, a sofa and a pull-out bed in a sideboard, if you had an additional guest. Furthermore they are all equipped with a dishwasher, an oven, induction hob and a fridge with a freezer compartment. You also have kettle, a French Press coffee maker, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery. If I were staying for a longer time I would probably have liked a washing machine too – but in fact we had everything we needed and it was all in top condition. You can also borrow the fondue and raclette sets from reception with a small deposit.
It was all really comfortable and super clean.
You have everything you need to dine in the apartment if you fancy an evening in. On our first evening we had a fondue in the apartment which was very relaxing and the hotel can provide all the ingredients and the equipment you need.
Restaurant s’nani at Peaks Place
However, if you would rather eat out, as we did on the second night, the on site restaurant “s’nani”, has a great menu with fresh, local ingredients from the region. Our dinner was beautifully prepared and tasted fabulous.
Do leave room to try the white chocolate “bombe” dessert (above) – as it really is a showpiece and great fun to crack open!
Chef Pascal Schmutz
Chef Pascal Schmutz (above) has a knack for creating delicious, wonderfully tasting dishes from locally sourced produced and we really enjoyed our dinner and breakfast in the beautifully furnished restaurant.

We really enjoyed out stay at Peaks Palace – it offered easy ski access, great relaxation and wonderful food in the mountains. In addition there are plenty of walks and snow hikes in the area and as well as visiting Lake Cauma we also visited the Crestasee when we were there. So if you fancy some fresh mountain air, wonderful skiing and great relaxation and wellness well as great food, why not book a break?

Fancy a Special Snowboard or Skis? How About Making Your Own?
Whilst we were in Laax we visited the company Enlain who manufacture custom made skis, snowboards and surfboards to your own design, made of wood. In addition, they run Workshops where you can learn how to create your own “masterpiece” out of wood. As well as a fun thing to do and something to treasure for years to come, you can also give vouchers for the Workshops as presents. Find out more about the services Enlain offers here.
