Switzerland’s luxury health hideway set to reopen

Bürgenstock Resort, Lake Lucerne, one of Switzerland’s most famous hotels, is to re-open its doors on 28 August 2017.  Following a nine-year, US$ 569 million construction project, the historic hideaway has been restored as an exclusive destination for health, leisure and culture guests.

Many visitors travel to Switzerland for both medical and wellbeing reasons. The Bürgenstock resort is perfectly placed to accommodate them. The Waldhotel Healthy Living is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of doctors, scientists and therapists, devoted to catering to the healthcare needs of guests and patients. It features a treatment portfolio that is focused on the promotion of health through convalescence, medical check-ups, beauty, lifestyle and healthy ageing.

Perched 500 meters above Lake Lucerne, the kilometre-long, car-free resort is accessible by private boat from Lucerne and will comprise four hotels: the five-star superior Bürgenstock Hotel, the five-star Waldhotel Healthy Living, the four-star Palace Hotel and the three-star Pension Taverne 1879.

With a total of 383 rooms and suites, the complex will feature a Healthy Living centre, 12 bars and restaurants, 67 residence suites, a cinema, a 10,000 sqm Alpine Spa as well as a wide range of leisure activities including golf, mountain biking, ice skating and tennis.

The Bürgenstock Alpine Spa features three pools, saunas and a Hammam steam room, whirlpool baths, 15 treatment rooms and three private spas. The Waldhotel and the Alpine Spa both open in autumn 2017..

The resort also captures its energy from the lake. 80% of its thermal and 100% of its cooling requirements are circulated via a network of insulated pipes emanating from an energy distribution centre – a process that is almost carbon neutral.

First imagined by Franz Josef Bucher and Josef Durrer in 1871, the resort rose to fame in the 1950s and 60s, when the biggest names in politics and entertainment would descend on the lake-side paradise, including Indian prime minister Indira Gandhi, US president Jimmy Carter, film stars Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn, who married Mel Ferrer in the resort’s chapel in 1954.

Switzerland enjoys increasing popularity due to its reputation for luxury hospitality, crystal blue lakes, alpine forests and snow-capped mountains.
