This winter season, Ultima Gstaad launches a new partnership with globally renowned Peruvian restaurant group COYA, to bring the flavours, colours and energy of Latin America to the Swiss Alps. With COYA’s reputation for creating outstanding guest experiences and Ultima Gstaad’s commitment to providing unmatched standards of services for guests, this partnership is a blend of exemplary gastronomic splendour capturing the spirit of Latin America, for guests seeking authentic, trendy and immersive experiences.
From Saturday, 12th December 2020, until Monday, 1st March 2021, award-winning luxury lifestyle group, COYA, will be taking over Ultima Gstaad’s Restaurant, Lobby Bar and Shisha Lounge each evening, transforming the space into a Latin American adventure. COYA will be offering their signature sharing plates inspired by traditional Peruvian cuisine and influenced by Japanese, Spanish and Chinese cooking techniques, expertly made cocktails, and a sense of true Latin American fiesta with extravagant performances, live music, and a resident DJ playing a mixture of afro house, downtempo and tribal beats.
COYA’s Regional Executive Chef, Fabrizio Fossati has created special A La Carte, Taste of Lima, and Room Service menus for the pop-up. The A La Carte menu will feature COYA’s global favourite dishes such as Ceviche de Atun Chifa made with albacore tuna, sesame, soy and served with a rice cracker; Arroz Nikkei made with charcoal-grilled Chilean sea bass over rice, lime and chilli; Lomo de Res with spicy marinated beef fillet with Peruvian chilli and crispy shallots; and COYA’s much-loved Churros de Naranja, orange and lime churros served with warm dulce de leche and chocolate sauce.
Ultima Gstaad guests will be among the first in the world to enjoy the Taste of Lima menu launching this winter in COYA’s Pisco Bar & Lounges globally. Each dish has been inspired by Fabrizio Fossati’s recent expedition to South America in search of new flavours, found in the streets of Lima, the original home of fusion South American cuisine. Fabrizio has taken inspiration from traditional delights such as the empanada, croqueta and tostada, and reimagined them for modern luxury dining, producing an authentic and elevated experience. Guests can expect to be blown away by the devilishly moreish Empanadas de Maíz con Pollo, Croquetas de Lubina, and Tostada de Atún.
COYA’s expert bar team have created a unique cocktail menu for the pop-up, inspired by the Swiss Alps and available in Ultima’s Lobby Bar and Shisha Bar. Alongside COYA’s famed Pisco Sour, cocktails include Dolce & Banana, made with vodka, banana, hazelnut and Swiss chocolate; Mountain Range Punch, made with whisky, gingerbread spiced tea, vanilla, orange and toasted marshmallow; and a warming Hot Honey Toddy with aged rum, honey with lemon, spices, tonka bean, tea.
Set to be the highlight of the year, Ultima Gstaad and COYA will be joining forces to curate an unforgettable New Year’s Eve party to bring in 2021. Starting with a champagne welcome, the celebrations will be followed by a four-course Peruvian feast with special dishes to ignite the senses. Entertainment will be provided throughout with a live DJ, a Latin band, and South American carnival-style dancers will host party goers into the early hours.
