More about Switzerland

MORE ABOUT SWITZERLAND

The clocks run on time. There are three official languages. It plays host to some decidedly Neolithic archaeological sites - great houses of timber whose elevated floors were pummelled into the lake beds of Zurich and Constance. There is a large Hadron collider here, doing unspeakable things to molecules far beneath the earth. This is a tawdry introduction to what is, in fact, a jaw-dropping and effortlessly stylish country, where the hotels are bright and gorgeous and the food is spectacular. Probably thanks to Switzerland’s handy disposition between France, Italy, and Germany. The original fusion cuisine, no less.

Private tours in Switzerland

PRIVATE TOURS

A holiday to Switzerland is - by dint of the country’s effortless service and impeccable taste - already high on the luxury scale. To experience the best of the best, we recommend a private tour, circling high - by train - across the Golden Pass to Montreux, where each carriage is decked out with belle epoque grandeur. When you arrive at the shores of Lake Geneva, and check in to the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace, you’ll feel as if time has slipped, gently, backwards to an altogether easier time. Sail to bright Vevey for a candlelit dinner on the shores.

THE COUNTRY’S BEST LUXURY HOTELS

It’s possible that there isn’t a bad hotel in Switzerland. If you want to test that theory, be our guests. However, we have the pulse on the country’s undeniable ‘big ticket’ luxury hotels, from the Grand Budapest Hotel-esque Fairmont Montreux to Zurich’s rustic, arty and effortlessly cool Widder Hotel. The Swiss know how to do a good hotel. And that’s putting it lightly.

An Alpine honeymoon in Switzerland

AN ALPINE HONEYMOON

Fondue - the most (or least) romantic of foods, depending on how you look at it. Switzerland makes for a sumptuous, glamorous honeymoon destination, for its sharp Alpine peaks, belle epoque hotels, blisteringly attentive service, and wine cellars which will require a little sit down after viewing. The culinary fortitude of Italy meets the style of Germany and the viticulture of France. High up in the shimmering Alps, there’s only you to enjoy it.

Hotels in Switzerland

STAY IN SWITZERLAND

Between belle epoque grandeur - for those Last Year in Marienbad vibes - to cool, boutique hotels in the city centre, Switzerland has perfected the craft of creating awe-inspiring accommodation. The only problem is narrowing down where to stay.

Hotels in Switzerland's city

IN THE CITY

The Widder Hotel is a cool, art-packed boutique hotel in the heart of Zurich, offering a hip counterpoint to the more traditional belle epoque hotels of Montreux and Lucerne. It does not, however, scrimp on luxury, and remains a full-bored five star experience, albeit with a gentler edge - a collage of sleek modernity and elegant historical details. It’s also right to the famous Bahnhofstrasse in the heart of Zurich.

Hotels in the Alps

IN THE ALPS

Probably the crown of the best hotel in the Alps falls to the incomparable Bürgenstock Hotel & Alpine Spa. A feat of jaw-dropping architectural innovation, its 102 style-conscious rooms sit encased in floor-to-ceiling glass, with an accompanying restaurant that hangs, suspended, over the crystalline waters of Lake Lucerne below. It will be hard to tear yourself away.

Hotels among the mountain villages

AMONG MOUNTAIN VILLAGES

Come sunshine or snowfall, the Lodge at - nestled among the pines and snows of iconic Verbier - envolds you within its luxurious embrace, where its nine gorgeously-chic suites offer homely comforts and world-class service. It is friendly, charming, and oh-so comforting. A five minute, fairytale walk will land you in the village of Verbier itself, lined with bars, restaurants and charming shops. Evade reality, why don’t you.
