Imagine an impressive fairy tale palace, set in a charming and picturesque mountain village, surrounded by the spectacular Swiss Alps. Now picture yourself there, experiencing a relaxing and memorable stay at the area’s most renowned hotel, the legendary Gstaad Palace.
The Gstaad Palace enjoys an unrivalled reputation for luxury, refined hospitality, and a unique atmosphere. First opened in 1913, it is one of the only family-owned and operated hotels in Switzerland. That can be seen in the personalized service guests receive from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave.
104 exquisitely-appointed rooms and suites provide a plethora of options for travellers. The spectacular three-bedroom Penthouse Suite is the cherry on top of the cake, offering an outdoor whirlpool and sauna, and a 150 square metre rooftop terrace with breathtaking mountain views.
On site, guests can enjoy five gourmet restaurants, a vibrant lobby bar, a spa, and a range of activities designed to enliven the body and spirit. And in the beautiful natural environment that surrounds the hotel, there are adventures to be found at every turn. There are no limits, just an elegant ambiance and an exceptional staff dedicated to fulfilling your every wish.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Gstaad into a greater Swiss or European holiday.
