Le Grand Bellevue, Gstaad, will reopen for the summer season with a brand new spa aesthetic and facilities, inspired by the rolling hills and verdant valleys of the surrounding Bernese Oberland.
The enhanced wellness offering at the 3,000sqm Le Grand Spa — among the largest spas in Switzerland — draws on the fresh air, health-giving botanicals and ice-capped peaks of the Swiss Alps for a holistic wellness experience.
Offering 17 unique wellness experiences, the vast and varied Thermal Oasis is the perfect place to soothe aching muscles after a hard day of hiking the steep mountain trails.
New experiences include a relaxing and softly-scented Hay Sauna, invigorating Ice Fountain and detoxifying Infra-Red Sauna, in addition to the revitalising Himalayan Salt Grotto, relaxing Herbal Sauna, authentic Finnish Sauna and soothing Laconium.
The adjoining courtyard garden has been transformed with an effusion of colourful and fragrant alpine plants and the addition of new outdoor experiences including a stimulating Kneipp Walk, yoga space and outdoor relaxation pool.
The new spa design fuses calming pastel shades of dusky terracotta, slate grey and sage green with natural oak panelling for a soothing alpine aesthetic.
Subtle wooden detailing conjures the traditional Saanen style chalets scattered throughout the surrounding valleys.
Two new relaxation areas, including a silent room with water beds, offer peace and quiet between treatments, with free-flowing herbal iced teas.
The spa overhaul has also seen the addition of a brand new Alpine Spa Suite.
Designed for two guests to indulge in a day of luxurious pampering side-by-side, the suite boasts a Jacuzzi, Rasul chamber, scrub table and relaxation area.
The large swimming pool and Jacuzzi are situated above the spa, with floor-to-ceiling views of the hotel’s manicured gardens, and an adjacent sun-drenched terrace for post-swim relaxation.
The bright and airy fitness suite is stocked with the latest equipment, including cardio and resistance machines and free weights, as well as a Senso Pro Trainer and Pilates Allegro.
A comprehensive roster of classes are available to guests on a complimentary basis, ranging from Pilates and Yoga to circuit training, contemporary dance and boot camp.
