FLIMS, Switzerland, May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Waldhaus Flims Mountain Resort & Spa (the "Waldhaus Flims"), an iconic Swiss hotel with 150 guest rooms located on more than 50 acres in Flims that was acquired by Z Capital Partners, L.L.C. in December 2015, today announced it will undergo a CHF40 million renovation. The redesign will maintain the property's storied heritage while enhancing the resort to the level of a luxury alpine hotel and spa and restoring the Waldhaus Flims to a dominant position in the Swiss market. The renovations, which will begin during the 2016 summer season, will pay homage to the historic nature of the hotel and provide guests with a truly world-class experience.

Other upgrades will include renovated meeting and events space to allow the hotel to attract group business and weddings, redesigned restaurant concepts and the introduction of vastly improved technology across the resort.
The Waldhaus Flims will open for the 2016 summer season beginning on June 4, 2016 and close in early September. The resort will reopen in early December 2016 following completion of the renovations.
