Five-star luxury hotels are in abundant supply in Switzerland, so it can be hard to know which to choose. To help you relax and enjoy your luxurious getaway in this beautiful Alpine country, I’ve made a list of my personal favorites among the most luxurious hotels that you’ll find in Switzerland.
Le Grand Bellevue, Gstaad
Le Grand Bellevue is situated in the heart of the lovely city Gstaad, where celebrities such as Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney and Madonna came on holiday. It’s one of the most traditional 5-star hotels in the area. The mansion offers 48 stylish rooms and 9 luxury chalet-style suites.
Le Grand Bellevue combines the charm of a Swiss chalet with the luxury of exclusive facilities. Diner is served at Leonard’s, Le Grand Bellevue’s Michelin-star restaurant. The hotel was originally built in 1912 as a cure resort and spa. The wellness facility today still measures a whopping 3000 square meters, including an indoor swimming pool and an outdoor relaxation pool! That’s why I chose Le Grand Bellevue as one of the best luxury hotels in Switzerland.
Hotel Villa Honegg
This boutique hotel in the heart of Switzerland is a 5-star hotel with 23 rooms. The villa was built in 1905 and completely refurbished in 2011. Villa Honegg stands high above Lake Lucerne which makes the heated outdoor pool with it magnificent views the real showstopper. The decor of the rooms create an inviting ambience and offer plenty of tranquility and privacy. The cuisine of the restaurant at Villa Honegg was awarded 14 Gault-Millau points and focuses on local ingredients. That’s why Villa Honegg could not be missing in my list of exclusive hotel options in Switzerland.
The Dolder Grand, Zürich
The Dolder Grand is a blissful oasis of tranquillity that leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. The hotel originally opened in 1899 and has 175 rooms varying in size. Over the past, it has attracted various illustrious guest such as Winston Churchill and Sophia Loren. The Dolder Grand has the impeccable reputation to be one of the finest luxury hotels in the entire Switzerland. Their restaurant specializes in intriguing dishes that challenge culinary preconceptions with a fascinating and unusual array of flavors. Fun fact: it is the first Swiss luxury hotel to accept the cryptocurrency as payment!
7132 Hotels, Vals
The 7132 Hotels are in fact a combination of three hotels: 7132 Hotel, 7132 House of Architects and 7132 Glenner. The first is a luxury 5-star design hotel featuring top-level architecture and gastronomy. They have a fleet of limousines available as well as their own private helicopter. At 7132 House of Architects, rooms have an abundance of natural materials such as wood and stone of the highest quality. 7132 has a spa complex built over the only thermal springs in the Graubünden canton in Switzerland!
Technically this is not a luxury hotel, but what’s more exclusive than sleeping under the starry night sky? Hotel Whitepod is world unique hotel concept located in the Swiss Alps where ecotourism and luxury combine. The eco-luxury hotel takes environmental conservation to the next level. When guests check-in at the reception they are signing up for a nature boost to their physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
