Only the very best for our guests

The health of our guests takes top priority at La Val – and we’re happy to invest in it: we were one of the first hotels in Switzerland to equip all our public areas with air purifiers that kill 99.995% of viruses and bacteria, using a dry heat technique to decontaminate the filter. The purifier we selected is at the top of its class and capable of filtering Covid-19 mutations from the air. Recent studies have shown that this model reduces the risk of infection in enclosed areas to virtually zero in a matter of minutes – and keeps it there! Are we overdoing the precautions? Our motto for 2021 is ‘Better safe than sorry’. That’s why we’re making sure to offer you maximum Covid-safety at La Val Hotel & Spa. We wish you a warm welcome!


Fully professional room disinfection in La Val Hotel & SpaVal Hotel & Spa

All our hotel rooms are professionally disinfected before check-in using a fogging procedure.


Fogging disinfection is a completely new hygiene standard. While conventional manual disinfection only removes 60-70% of germs, fully automated fogging disinfection gets rid of 99.99%.
A highly compressed stream of air through the spray head in the generator disperses the disinfectant into a cloud of suspended droplets (an aerosol). These droplets then diffuse in their millions throughout the room in all directions, disinfecting every corner and surface, including areas that may be difficult to reach using standard cleaning methods.

The special disinfectant product is made of electrochemically modified water. It is pH neutral and has no synthetic additives. It has a very high redox potential, which is what gives it its disinfecting power: it eliminates 99.99% of microorganisms.

The disinfectant is a bactericide, virucide and fungicide. It is not a hazardous substance, does not contain alcohol or any synthetic products, is non-toxic to humans and the environment, and was rated “VERY GOOD” in dermatological tests.
