The new 160 room five-star luxury Waldhotel Health & Medical Excellence in Lucerne, Switzerland, has opened its doors after an extensive regeneration programme.
Combining the healing tranquillity of Lake Lucerne with Switzerland’s outstanding reputation for wellness, Waldhotel Health & Medical Excellence has opened within the historic Bürgenstock Hotels & Resort.
The integrated, state-of-the-art alpine facility is an exclusive retreat for medical tourists, wellbeing enthusiasts and athletes, providing diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitation programmes, in addition to preventative and cosmetic treatments.
Set in the luxury of the five-star Waldhotel, the holistic approach to health encompasses nutrition, exercise and rest, balanced with the healing qualities of Lake Lucerne, to create a bespoke wellness experience for each guest.
