Zurich, 11 November 2015 – Following the sale of the building of the Steigenberger Alpenhotel and Spa in Gstaad-Saanen, the Steigenberger Hotel Group is withdrawing from the resort location with effect from 31 March 2016 after a presence of more than 35 years.

The previous owner of the property, Acron Helvetia II Immobilien AG, is selling the Alpenhotel to Huus Gstaad AG. The deal was officially certified yesterday, 10 November.

Located in the Bernese Highlands, the Steigenberger Alpenhotel and Spa is a traditional four-star property that has formed an integral part of the group since 1981. Steigenberger Hotels AG will continue to operate the hotel until the end of the winter season on 31 March 2016, when it will be transferred to the new owner. Discussions are currently taking place with staff with a view to retaining them within the company. General Manager Guntram Weipert will take on a different role in the group in future.

“Switzerland currently occupies an important strategic role within our portfolio in the shape of the Steigenberger Bellerive au Lac in Zurich and the Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvédère in Davos,” said Puneet Chhatwal, CEO of Steigenberger Hotels AG. “We are currently on the lookout for new locations for all three brands.”

Alongside Steigenberger Hotels and Resorts, the plan is also to establish InterCityHotels at central transport hubs. Attractive locations are also being sought for the innovative Jaz in the City hotel concept.
