The Experience

Primland is the ultimate Luxury Mountain Getaway

Our Story

It was the vision of Primland’s founder, Didier Primat, to create a place of immense beauty that offered his guests a return to simple human pleasures in an environment of refined authenticity and sensuality. He developed Primland in an eco-conscious and thoughtful manner, as the ultimate retreat for world-class golf, refined dining and outdoor activities.

Our love of the land is expressed in our extensive efforts to minimize our impact on nature, the freshness of our food, the many organic, sustainable ingredients we source locally or grow in our organic garden, and the care with which we look after our guests. Didier Primat instilled his passion for Primland in every member of his family and staff, and they carry forward his legacy with soul, heart and a commitment to genuine hospitality.

“In all of my travels, I have never experienced a property like Primland. With its beautiful accommodations, fantastic dining options, infinite number of activities, and sheer, untouched natural beauty, Primland is truly one-of-a-kind.”
