Hotel 7132, Vals Switzerland

World-renowned architects design the rooms and suites

When Peter Zumthor built the thermal baths in 1996, the small mountain town of Vals became a mecca for architecture enthusiasts. Hotel 7132, named after Vals’ postal code, intends to enhance this reputation even further. Gradual renovations on the hotel started in 2012. The management chose to work with internationally renowned architects, giving them free hand to design the rooms and suites as they wished. The new rooms and three suites designed by Kengo Kuma were just recently completed. Kuma installed NEOREST AC WASHLETs in the suites, which matched their simple elegance. The Japanese architect was, of course, familiar with the shower toilets and the many advantages they offer. Today, more and more European guests are also learning to appreciate the clean feeling they experience after using the WASHLET.
