Les Sources des Alpes, originally named “Hotel des Alps” opened its doors in 1834. Many famous guests discovered the benefits of the thermal waters and the luxury atmosphere of the hotel, including famous souls like Alexandre Dumas, Leon Tolstoy, Pablo Picasso or Charlie Chaplin. In 1990, the hotel was renamed “Les Sources des Alpes” and is part of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux.
Today, Les Sources des Alpes is a stunning five-star hotel at about 1.400m above sea level. This hotel, offering discrete luxury, has 30 elegant suites, junior suites and superior deluxe rooms, each of them furnished individually in restful colours. For a business audience, there is also one meeting with a capacity up to 30 persons.
Les Sources des Alpes has its own thermal pool, with an all-year temperature of 36 degrees. If you want to take a revitalizing bath, you can opt for the indoor or the outdoor swimming pool (and this one offers even heated towels!). The open-air experience is definitely one that is simply unforgettable. The hotel sits slightly elevated above the center of Leukerbad. So from the outdoor swimming pool – and from your room – you can enjoy wonderful vistas.
Romantic dinner surrounded by hundreds of wine bottles
The guests at Les Sources des Alpes can enjoy a wide variety of spa treatments and various cure programs: hot stone and essential oil massages, body wrappings, peelings or balneotherapies are just a few examples from a wide selection of choices. Nice to know: all programs take an individualized approach and are adapted according to your wishes.
After regenerating and revitalizing your body (and mind!), you are kindly invited to enjoy an exquisite dinner at Restaurant La Malvoisie: a gastronomic heaven where the chef kindly spoils his guests. This gourmet restaurant with its charming terrace features 14 Gault Millau points. No wonder that La Malvoisie is an excellent place for a fine-dine experience.
Let us share a little secret with you: if you are in for something really special, ask the chef if dinner for two can be served in the wine-cellar. Very romantic indeed! This wine-cellar, awared by the “Guide des Sommeliers”, offers a selection of hundreds of wines from all over the world – with special attention to the best wines of the Valais region. If you want, you can also enjoy a glass of wine and relax by the fire in bar La Barrique, which is also a great après-ski stop, with live music during high season.
