In this video, Grand Luxury Hotels co-founders and brothers, Ivan and Rouslan Lartisien, take us to the refined world of the Gstaad Palace in the heart of the Swiss Alps: one of the country’s most unmissable premier hospitality experiences since December 1913.
We take a peek into what goes into organising the grand reopening of the hotel, and witness this Swiss Grand Dame awaken from her winter slumber to welcome the 2021 summer season’s guests.
As a location, Gstaad is renowned as one of the most popular winter resorts… but it also offers a delightful summer getaway, too, during which the formidable slopes shed their snow to reveal verdant pastures, pine forests and flower-studded meadows.
And speaking of summer, the Palace itself has shaken off the lingering traces of hibernation by undergoing a soft renovation, showcasing a new bar at the iconic ‘Piscine’ – the Olympic-size swimming pool that is the hit of the warm weather months – as well as offering the exclusive Cellgym programme at its world-class spa.
