An amazing experience. Wonderful place and staff very friendly and kind. Accurate details. Everything is special: guided tour through the village, snowshoe walk, fondue for dinner when you have the possibility of meeting other guests. I'm impressed.

We stayed here as a family of 6, as once we saw the photos we decided we had to do it. The igloo construction and artwork inside are beautiful. The dinner was adequate but given how much you pay it is a little disappointing that anything more than the basic fondue is an extra cost. The hot tub was a...

Overall it is nice and impressive. We have a memorial experience.

you have to sleep in an iglo. Our overnight stay in the Engelberg Iglo Hotel was very different from any other hotel nights. The competent staff had a programme for the evening that makes you move and be active to prevent you from being cold or very cold. The sleeping bag was very warm, so no worry about a cold...

The igloo itself is sweet, but do ask yourself before you pay, what is guaranteed, and what the company only hopes for. The following are the highlights of the trip as described in iglu-dorf's own promotional materials, with my experience of receiving them: 1) The igloo village: "This village makes you feel like the first human being in the mountains....

Such a unique experience that should be on everyone's bucket list! Had a lovely romantic night enjoying a few drinks, a spa & a cosy night in a real igloo. It was a little chilly overnight (but then again, it is made of ice...) so as long as you're prepared for that, you're sure to have a most enjoyable stay...
