The time has come to refresh Nangijala and make your favourite hostel, bar and restaurant even better. We want to bring new ideas, new energy and a new level of quality to Nangijala. The person to do it is Stefanie Schmid, backed by the current Nangijala team. Stefanie is an experienced hotel manager and has some great ideas for how to improve Nangijala, but she needs help to finance her project. We thought a good way to do that would be to ask our wonderful, loyal customers who have helped to make Nangijala such a success over the years –other words, you!

Our Vision


Our Vision


Nangijala will still be the Nangijala you know and love. The aim is not to make any dramatic changes but to refine it, expand it and actively promote it to new customers. The most important aim will be to attract more off-season guests. We can do this with an enhanced summer / spring event program and increased marketing. With Stefanie bringing her skills and experience to the business, Nangijala will be able to reach new heights. One of the original Nangijala co-founders, Viktor Andersson, will be staying on for a one-year transition period to ensure a smooth handover.

 
  • Events 
    Nangijala will focus on attracting more groups of guests with an enhanced activity and event program. On the agenda will be guided mountain bike tours, bike camps, yoga retreats, snowshoe hikes, corporate workshops, and local wine and food tours.

  • Menu
    We’ll continue to develop our international cuisine and increase focus on Nangijala as a stand-alone restaurant / dining location. The goal is to be the best international restaurant in the region, while still keeping prices affordable.

  • Local partners 
    Strengthening ties with local suppliers and companies is key to Nangijala’s ongoing success. As part of the Disentis community we believe in working together for mutual benefit, through joint marketing, special event collaborations and promotions.

  • Marketing
    A little bit of strategic marketing goes a long way. Targeted print and online ads, improved SEO on the website, increased social media activity and exposure on the right online booking
    platforms will attract more international and multi-day guests.

  • Long term 
    Nangijala has the potential to expand in another resort. This would make Nangijala visible to a much wider market, and open up the possibility of developing it as a retail / lifestyle brand.

About Nangijala


About Nangijala


Nangijala is a 17-room, 42-bed hostel, bar and restaurant that punches way above its weight among budget accommodations in the Swiss Alps. Since opening for business in 2008, its combination of cool Nordic style, friendly atmosphere and first-rate service has established it as a popular hub in the region’s thriving mountain tourism scene. Situated on the busy tourist route between Zurich, Andermatt and Tessin, close to national rail connections, Disentis Bergbahnen and scenic mountain trails, Nangijala is a popular destination for hikers, bikers, climbers and campers during spring and summer. In the colder months it comes into its own as a lively base for skiers and snowboarders visiting Disentis3000 ski area.

 

Hostel & Guest House

Nangijala hostel is fully equipped for today’s active Alpine tourist market. Facilities include a ski room, bike garage with cleaning area, universal Wi-Fi, off-street parking, steam sauna suite and comfortable common areas with full self-catering. Guests can choose between cosy rooms in the main restaurant building, or for an extra level of comfort book into the modern (2012) eco-designed Nangijala Guest House, designed by renowned local architect Stefan Coray. 

 

Restaurant

Nangijala’s restaurant is a stand-alone success story in its own right, and not only because of its famous homemade burgers. The kitchen specialises in artisan foods prepared using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients (a refreshing alternative to the tired ‘fondue and salad buffet’ offered by many hotels in the region). The cellar is lovingly stocked with a broad range of local and international wines and selected craft beers, and a spacious sun terrace
adjoining the restaurant makes it a popular lunch spot in warmer months.

 

Bar

Nangijala is one of the most popular apres-ski spots in Disentis, and the centre of the booming freeride scene for which Disentis is famous. From Thursday to Saturday in winter Nangijala is a buzzing live music venue, with upcoming bands and DJs from Switzerland and beyond keeping the joint jumping into the small hours. For those wanting a break from the dance floor there’s a separate wine bar, which can be hired for private events and doubles as a coffee shop and
reception area during the daytime. Being located just outside of local residential zones, Nangijala is permitted under local law to stay open until 3am at weekends.
