SUSTAINABILITY & INNOVATION

VALSANA HOTEL AROSA

7050 Arosa, valsana.ch
Points: 94

Sustainable Chic in the Grisons Mountains. The Valsana Hotel has consciously committed itself to the preservation of nature, which is so incredibly close in Arosa. As part of the Tschuggen Hotel Group, the five-star hotel - in cooperation with myclimate - can call itself climate-neutral since 2019. An impressive success, for which on the one hand sustainable construction activities were decisive, on the other hand a rethinking in the hotel's everyday life itself. Recycling, eco-cleaners or regional organic food? Have long been part of good manners. And instead of fossil fuels, an ice storage system heats the building. By supporting various climate protection projects, Valsana also offsets unavoidable CO2 emissions - an option that guests can also take advantage of. This is luxury vacation at its most sustainable.
