Locality and nature
Freshen up – no wet room required
Massage jets, therapy lights and rain showers? They’ve all been seen before. But what you won’t get in any hotel is that tingling feeling of a truly invigorating, natural spray of water on your skin. The three waterfalls – or should we say wild showers – in the Saanenland are 5-star attractions to say the least. What better way to freshen up on your hike than by visiting the Geltenschuss and Tungelschuss falls at Lake Lauenen or the Burgbach falls at Gsteig.
