  • With its extraordinary size and immense glass roof providing the most spectacular view of Crans-Montana, the bar is "the place to be" at any time of the day or night. Relive your day by sipping a house cocktail or warming yourself with a creamy hot chocolate while surrounded by conversations about skiing and hiking.
  • The terrace is the living heart of the Crans Ambassador, inviting you to witness the still pink sunrise over one of the most beautiful views in the Valais or to relish the last rays of the day as the flames of a brazier crackle.
