Exclusive Ski Resorts
If you are looking for the ultimate in luxury accommodation, you are spoiled for choice in Switzerland. Here is a selection of the finest hotels the country has to offer:
The Kempinski Grand Hotel - St. Moritz
Offering 5 star accommodation in the heart of St Moritz, all luxury rooms and suites come with state-of-the-art entertainment systems, free internet, 24 hour room service, phone with voice-mail, complimentary daily newspaper, minibar, safe, complimentary bottled water, a laundry and dry-cleaning service and a pillow menu. Dining at the Restaurant Les Saisons is superb and the service offered by everyone from concierge to waiting staff is just as you would expect from this world-class chain.
The Kulm Hotel - St. Moritz
The Kulm Hotel in St. Moritz is another 5 star ski resort situated in the heart of St. Moritz. Offering stunning views over Lake St. Moritz combined with a refined elegance cultivated over many years, The Kulm oozes charm as it effortlessly combines state-of-the-art modernity with classical decor and tradition. Of course, the skiing is superb but for those who don’t get on with skiing, there’s a host of other pastimes including golf, with a nine-hole course on site, hiking, walking, snowshoe hiking and horse-riding.
Badrutts Palace Hotel - St. Moritz
Badrutts Palace Hotel has been described as “La Creme de la Creme of St. Moritz” and with good reason. It often plays host to royalty, to stars of stage and screen, and to sporting personalities. Here, traditional hospitality and discrete service combine to deliver a first class hotel experience and the understandably high expectations of the guests are surpassed with seeming consummate ease. The Badrutt is sophistication itself; it is the champagne lifestyle at high altitude and a place where exclusivity meets style and grace.
Clinique La Prarie - Clarens-Montreux
Clinique La Prarie is a health spa in the true sense of the words. Theirs is a holistic approach to physical and mental well being. They offer everything from full medicals to dentistry. Their beauty spa treatments include face, full body, hand and foot treatments, aromatic baths, floating beds, chromotherm, affusion massage, steam baths and saunas. There are yoga sessions and a very well equipped fitness and personal training area. Currently under refurbishment (2013), the clinic is set to offer still greater levels of comfort alongside its excellent treatment programmes.
Dolder Grand Spa - Zurich
Open daily from 7am to 10pm, the spa at The Dolder Grand is something to write home about. The usual range of relaxing treatments are on offer here: facials, massages, manicures, pedicures etc. but they also offer a detoxing relaxation ritual and a meditation walk. Must tries here are the outdoor Jacuzzi and the stone beds, which are large tubs filled with tiny stones; surprisingly, they make you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. A visit here is a total disconnect from the hustle and bustle of life and a reconnection to that which is important, inner peace and tranquillity.
Lausanne Palace and Spa - Lausanne
The CBE Concept Spa at the Lausanne Palace offers a Spa Suite. This gives you and one other the opportunity to enjoy a totally private spa experience. For 3 hours, two people can have exclusive use of all the facilities on offer including the sauna and hammam, the circular copper bath and relaxation area. You are greeted with a welcome juice drink and can each have a care treatment to either the face or body, and lunch is served afterwards with fresh juice and coffee.
Gstaad Palace - Gstaad
The Gstaad is exclusive and glamorous. With six different restaurants and bars and rooms and suites that leave you wanting for nothing, it is a hotel experience to rival the best in the world. Like The Lausanne Palace, it too has a wonderful spa. An added attraction at The Gstaad is The Walig Hut, your own private hideaway in the mountains. Built in 1786 and originally a farmers lodge, there are very few of them left now. The Gstaad’s Walig has been sympathetically updated and now provides high-quality mountainside accommodation for a family of four.
Grand Hotel Zermatterhof - Zermatt
Offering breathtaking views of the Matterhorn from most of its rooms and suites, the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof offers a mix of accommodation from very comfortable single and double rooms to elegant junior and luxury suites. All rooms have been individually decorated and are equipped with telephone, radio, cable TV, DVD, internet access, minibar and safe, and some rooms have a fireplace and a Jacuzzi bath. The Alpine Spa features a large pool, hot tub, sauna, steam bath and an ice-grotto. There are various treatment rooms and a private spa for couples. The staff are almost old-fashioned in their politeness and the service here is, as you would expect, top class.
