The Bella Lui house – «beautiful light» in the old Valais dialect – was built in 1930 and is today a listed historic monument and testament to modern architecture. Originally conceived as a luxury  sanatorium, it also served, among other things, as a spa and holiday hotel. Today, the youth hostel indulges its guests in a renovated building.

Recharge your batteries

With three differently designed terraces, each offering a unique panorama of the mountains and direct view of the lake, the temptation to linger awhile and savour the surroundings is irresistible.

High-class standard of accommodation with a splendid view

All double and family rooms are south facing, have their own loggia with a fantastic view of the mountain backdrop and are equipped to a high standard with shower/WC. On the ground floor is a unique room. Here you will discover an authentic single room that has remained unchanged since 1930. The spacious lounge with its 1920’s armchairs and comfy sofas, radiates a timeless and sublime aura.
