Le Grand Bellevue set to reopen in Gstaad, Switzerland

After a year-long renovation, Le Grand Bellevue will be unveiled this month under dynamic new ownership and with a contemporary new look. 

The re-launch of Gstaad’s oldest palace hotel introduces a fresh sense of vitality to this famously traditional Swiss village. 

The 57-room hotel offers a relaxed and residential approach to hospitality and is set to become a hotspot for a new generation of luxury travellers.

Stripped of the formalities and grandeur of its more traditional neighbours, Le Grand Bellevue has a neighbourhood spirit and the welcoming feel of a country house hotel.

Exquisite style and eclectic design combines with a lively atmosphere that is vibrant and youthful yet embraces all generations.

The hotel’s signature restaurant Leonards delivers exquisite bistro-style cuisine by Michelin-starred chef Urs Gschwend whilst Le Petit Chalet is a charming Swiss mountain cabin, seating an intimate 18 guests with a menu of hearty Swiss dishes.

Added perks include: the hotel’s ‘Carnozet’ which houses 10,000 bottles; an exclusive Sushi Bar; Cigar Lounge; 18-seat Private Cinema and a Club Room playing host to international DJs throughout the season.

For the ultimate après-ski or partying relaxation, the 2,500sqm Le Grand SPA offers a world-class sanctuary for wellness in partnership with Bamford Spa and revolutionary Swiss facial brand Cellcosmet. 

Extensive facilities include: eight spacious treatment rooms; an array of heat therapies including Turkish hammam, Himalayan salt inhalation grotto and outdoor Finnish sauna; a fully equipped gym; yoga & Pilates studio; and a 200sqm swimming pool opening up onto a lavender-clad terrace during summer months.
