Boutique Hotel in Valais

New! Scandinavian Barrel Sauna!

Enjoy our barrel sauna in plain nature!

A Romantic Hideaway nestled on a high plateau

The site of the Maya Boutique Hôtel was not chosen by chance. This unique hotel owes its name to its stunning location near the Maya Mountain. The vastness of this spectacular mountain scenery with views on the Mont Noble and the Rhone Valley can transport you into and beyond your dreams. From each room of our hotel in Valais you have a unique view on the Alps and the village of Nax.

What makes the Maya Boutique Hôtel so special? This is the first hotel entirely built with straw bales and other natural materials. The walls were covered with clay on the inside and plaster on the outside.
All furniture was hand made with a lot of love and expertise out of local wood. We have chosen a different kind of wood for every room. Together with the straw bale walls we created this way a cozy living climate that gets you rest and a pleasant sleep.

Located in the heights of the traditional village of Nax Mont-Noble at the entrance of the Val d'Hérens, this little boutique hotel reveals a charming setting where nature is preserved in all its grandeur. This hotel with its eight rooms is surrounded by fields and meadows inviting to relaxation and contemplation.

All our staff speaks english.

Ecological Hotel in Switzerland
built with Straw Bales

A unique conception:
With eight bedrooms, the Maya Boutique Hotel is much more than a hotel.
Our project is a true commitment to sustainable tourism.

Located at 1300m altitude, 20mn from the city of Sion, this is the first hotel built entirely with straw bales. 55 tons of straw have been used for this unique construction. All materials are natural such as wood, stone, straw, clay and glass.
The energy needed is very minimal due to the strong insulation properties of straw. The heating and hot water of the Maya Boutique Hotel are produced by recovering the excess heat from the wood oven and by operating the solar energy in the summer.

All furniture is hand made with local wood and the cuisine is based on local seasonal products.

It is our commitment to help you discover and appreciate the values of respect between man and nature. The Maya Boutique Hotel is just the place to experience this.

The Maya Boutique Hôtel has been nominated for the Milestone, Swiss Tourism Award, category Environnement.
