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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
