The announcement of the upgrades was made by Z Capital Partners LLC, which acquired the Swiss Alps locale in December 2015. Project participants say the redesign will maintain the property's storied heritage—it first opened in 1877—while modernizing and enhancing its luxury ambience.
Planned renovations include remodeling the lobby and guest rooms of the Grand Hotel, Villa Silvana and Chalet Belmont buildings, and an expansion and update of the on-site spa. Other upgrades will include renovating the resort’s meeting and events space and redesigning its restaurant concepts.

"The renovation will establish the Waldhaus Flims as the premier destination resort in the Swiss Alps," said Peter Schoch, the property’s managing director. "We plan to combine the renowned traditions of the property with incomparable guest services and amenities to deliver an unparalleled experience to visitors of this truly exceptional destination and look forward to maximizing its full potential."
The work is slated to begin during the upcoming summer season. The resort will then close in early September and reopen in early December, with the renovations complete.
