Luxury Spa Hotels in Switzerland
When you think of Switzerland, does your mind race to slalom skiing, excellent shopping and snowy mountaintops? While it’s safe to say that there is plenty of this, Switzerland is also famous for some stunning wellness hotels. Offering immersive experiences that help you rebalance and recharge, these wellness hotels in Switzerland are not to be missed!
“I wanted a spa where I did not need to leave the hotel for my stay. It didn’t disappoint.”
There is something quite remarkable about the art deco grandeur of the Victoria Jungfrau Grand Hotel and Spa. From the restaurant to the indoor swimming pool, those classic curves and distinctive shapes help to make this hotel stand out from the rest. But it doesn’t rely on looks alone. Relaxation is definitely on the cards with a 5500 m2 Spa with all the facilities you could ever hope for. Looking for an all-round wellness experience? This hotel offers a health coaching service with meal planning and beauty packages.
“An exclusive Swiss chalet with an Asian twist. We love it here.”
The Chedi Andermatt is located in the Swiss mountains, offering excellent opportunities to hit the slopes (if you hate carrying your skis, ask about the exclusive ski butler). With the appearance of a luxury Swiss chalet, this glass and wood building houses an Asian twist. The opulent décor is gilded with gold, while each room holds hints of the orient. There is even a Japanese restaurant on site! The wellness spa and fitness centre boasts indoor and outdoor pools, several beauty rooms, and padded loungers on the sun terrace.
“Ideal if, like me, you are the only one in your family that doesn’t want to ski!”
If you are looking for a hotel that caters for both lovers and lovers of skiing in your family, then the Crans Ambassador will be a perfect fit. With direct access to the slopes in winter and a terrace that is the perfect après-ski meeting point, the skiers in your life will love it. For those who wish to spend their holidays in a more horizontal position, the spa, and pool (did we mention the panoramic view) will keep you delighted. With a wine cellar, restaurant and fireplaces galore, we can’t think of a better way to spend a family holiday.
“Everywhere you look there is another fantastic viewpoint, I don’t know which way to turn.”
Located high above Zurich, the Dolder Grand is as stunning inside as the surrounding views. Overlooking Zurich, the lake and the Alps, this beautiful resort has two award-winning restaurants, an indoor pool with panoramic views and 18 treatment rooms offering various beauty treatments. The wellness centre is split into men’s and women’s, allowing for more privacy, and offers classes and health and wellness services. The Dolder Grand is the ideal stay for those wanting to take in the views whilst relaxing in luxury.
“I felt so special when I walked into this place. It was like I was being welcomed into an architect’s dream!”
Some may be taken back by the style of 7132, but once inside, this hotel shows each guest how architecture and design can work cohesively. The interior of this hotel is enough to put you at ease, but if that’s not enough for you, then the thermal baths will surely amaze you! Add this to the outdoor swimming pool, activities such as hiking and evening entertainment, and you have yourself the ideal holiday.
“Sometimes you just have to ski in style, and you can certainly do this here”
The Tschuggen Grand Hotel is situated high up in the Alps and was designed by Swiss architect Carlo Rampazzi. With every detail in each room he designed, it’s no surprise that this beautiful hotel is ranked as one of the world’s 450 most luxurious hotels. As well as offering a wealth of snow sports and sporting activities, the Tschuggen Bergoase spa is one of the largest in the area at 5000 m2.
“Grand by name, grand by nature. Perfect for those looking for an excellent holiday.”
The Grand Resort Bad Ragaz is one of the most spectacular Swiss hotels. Nestled in the foothills of the Alps, the mountain backdrop scene certainly sets the tone for this magnificent hotel. With seven restaurants on-site (in total five Michelin stars between them) and two golf courses, you’ll barely have time for the wellness centre that features several pools, saunas and a thermal pool that’s naturally heated by the Tamina gorge. This is wellness at its finest.
“Staying here makes you feel like you’re floating on the clouds. It feels so high up!”
Overlooking Lake Lucerne, this magnificent building appears almost to hang off the mountain. This mix of sleek design paired with a classic alpine lodge style really sets the Bürgenstock apart from the rest. The wellness centre is well-facilitated and has indoor and outdoor pools, including an infinity pool overlooking the Lake. Offering 15 treatment rooms and three private spa rooms, you’ll have plenty to do!
“The James Bond-style entrance made us feel special.”
Situated high above the town of Zermatt you will find The Omnia. This alpine lodge-style hotel is far from traditional, with beautiful design elements and a wealth of wellness facilities. What sets The Omnia apart is its ability to cater for its high-class guests. Offering a helicopter landing pad for guest use, a tunnel, and elevator entrance and a helicopter shuttle service to the airport, you’ll be in pretty good company staying here!Check availability
“The grandeur of the building nestled into the lush green countryside made my heart sing”
As you drive up to the Grand Hotel des Bains Kempinski, you might mistake it for a royal country residence. The historical features of this building hint nothing towards the modern style inside, which translates through to the spa as well. Featuring several pools, saunas and steam baths, you can relax and unwind after a day of exploring St. Moritz.
“The children were so well catered for, and we thoroughly enjoyed spending quality time here as a family”
One important part of working on your wellness is forgetting the day-to-day stresses. At the Waldhaus you can do just that! With a 3000 m2, an award-winning spa, beautifully designed bedrooms and (most importantly) a full childcare and leisure program to keep the little ones happy, you can spend the day focusing on you!Check availability
“We love spending the day on the sun terrace, just watching as the world goes by.”
This magnificent building overlooks the mountains of Adelboden and is an absolute haven for those looking for a wellness hotel in Switzerland. The Bellevue offers pools, Turkish baths, a fitness centre and a full range of massage therapies to help unwind after a day of skiing. There are also plenty of other activities to keep you entertained, such as tennis, hiking and cycling. Overall, it’s a great stay for those that want to stay active while on holiday.
In Switzerland, skiing and wellness go hand in hand. You can’t help but feel a sense of great calm when you are out on the slopes, enjoying all the earth has to give you.
