A recently named member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, 7132 Hotel, Vals was an eye-opener for many a Virtuoso member in Las Vegas, thanks to its exceptional design, by – among others – the Pritzker prize-winner Thom Mayne.
With original designed by Peter Zumthor in the 1990’s, the property had already become renowned over the years, but with recent renovations, it has become even more of a “masterpiece”.
New ve-star superior rooms have been designed by a local architect – built primarily for comfort, but General Manager, Roman Frauchiger, underlined the exceptional work being done in other zones: “The thermal baths by Zumthor… that was the masterpiece of his career, built in the late 90’s. The hotel also had some rooms by him… but it became a little bit ‘old’, and people forgot about the hotel connected to the thermal baths. The owner bought the hotel four years ago, and he renovated rooms in the four-star ‘House of Architects’ tower, where we now have rooms from four world famous architects. They had ‘carte blanche’ to do what they wanted with the 20 sqm rooms. There are still rooms by Zumthor, but also now by Thom Mayne, as well as two celebrated Japanese architects. Next year, we will build a new entry gate designed by Thom Mayne.”
The property is family oriented, with a separate building “just for kids” – designed with fun in mind!
