LE GRAND BELLEVUE HOTEL
Le Grand Bellevue was built in 1912 and it originally was a Cure House and Spa. Renowned as one of Gstaad’s most prestigious hotels, the Bellevue has been part of the town for generations. Dedicated to preserving and enhancing the hotel’s reputation as a synonym for Alpine excellence, the owner – Daniel Koetser – has reenergized and vitalized the Grand Bellevue, making a place that combines Swiss sophistication and elegance with the effortless warmth, luxury and creative spirit of a country house hotel.
The hotel blends its century-long history with a contemporary and easygoing elegance and – after it has been re-launched – the glamour of Gstaad with the unparalleled Swiss service. As a result, Le Grand Bellevue now offers the most stylish suites, excellent dining and drinking and really high-quality facilities.
The Bellevue is a combination of a grand hotel and a boutique retreat, making a perfect choice for relaxation!
LE GRAND SPA
Le Grand Spa is the region’s most impressive spa, including a vast range of saunas, among which a traditional hammam, a Himalayan salt room and a Roman laconium. As a world-class wellness sanctuary, the spa is staffed by skilled therapists and offers the option of working on your fitness as well.
The spa tailors a personal work-out programme, based on the residents’ needs and goals, which they can do in the hotel’s garden-view Artisline Technogym Fitness Room. Alternatively, the clients can tone their body and mind with Yoga or Pilates sessions in the serene studio. There are, also, treatments with the latest LPG and SHR/IPL technologies that are available to the visitors.
Last but not least, apart from the 11 treatment rooms and 7 therapeutic hot and cold rooms, the Grand Spa has an atmosheric indoor swimming pool and a jacuzzi, which you can use while enjoying an amazing view to the mountains.
DINING & DRINKING
Le Grand Bellevue Hotel is home to some of the most high-class and luxurious bars and restaurants of the world. Among them are the Michelin-starred “Leonard’s”, where the residents can enjoy refined bistro classics, the “Le Petit Chalet” that offers authentic Swiss specialities and the Sushi Bar, where visitors can enjoy healthy Japanese bites. Last but not least, The Bar and The Club Room are ideal for those looking to enjoy inspired cocktails.
The Lounge of the Grand Bellevue Hotel is the perfect spot to taste an afternoon tea, surrounded by bespoke furnishings and witty artistic touches which make up a unique space with its own, amazing character and an unparalleled personality.
LUXURY MEETS COMFORT
At Le Grand Bellevue Hotel’s core lies the combination of luxury and comfort. From the grand suites to the glamorous lounges, reaturants and bars and from the serene spa to the yoga and pilates studios with a view to the mountains, the hotel offers a unique experience, ideal for those seeking to relax in a top-quality location.
THE CIGAR LOUNGE
Within its cocktail lounge, the Grand Bellevue also hosts a Cigar Lounge, where the visitors can sink into its decadent splendour and work their way through the well-stocked humidor.
In there, they can find everything, from earthy, roasted cohibas to complex Churchills. Even if someone does not intend to smoke, they can just enjoy a glass of premium whiskey surrounded by the classic elegance of the space, with the velvet upholstery and soft lighting, all in balance with the glamorous dark floral decor.
RIDES OF A LIFETIME
The opulently soft leather of a vintage Bentley S3, once owned by Sir Roger Moore, is ready to welcome anyone interested in a luxurious ride that is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. From transfering a distinguished guest to booking a private ride to a special event, the residents of the Bellevue travel in glamorous style at the hotel.
Alteratively, there is a choice for those passionate with motorcycles. An annual Motorbike Rally takes palce in September and, by joining, the guests can ride along curvaceous Alpine mountain passes, at the end of which, they can wind down with raclette cheese and Krug Champagne.
BOUTIQUE & SKI SHOP
On the same floor as the spa, an elegant boutique offers everything you can imagine! Knitwear and swimwear, interior design objects, cosmetics and beauty products, candles and much more, from designer-labeled objects to souvenirs, make an amazing shopping experience. Always with the best quality possible, the shop exhales an air of sophistication and careful curation.
The Grand Bellevue’s ski shop offers luxurious and high quality equipment for the guest who are looking to ski, hike or snowshoe across the powder. Storing their ski boots, as they transfer from the slopes to the indoor facilities, is also an option for the guests.
CROQUET & YACHT CLUBS
The Bellevue Croquet Club is a place where the croquet lovers come together to indulge themselves with the curious and the unusual. By becoming members of this exclusive club, the guests can enjoy the complimentary use of the Croquet Lawn and an entrance to Le Grand Spa, as well as invitations to special events and many more perks. Apart from the regular Afternoon Teas, where the members can taste scones, fresh sandwiches and impeccably mixed Gin & Tonics, there are some “strange” occasions, such as the Curious Cucumber Challenge Cup that takes place in early September.
Additionally, visitors of the Grand Bellevue can become members of the private Gstaad Yacht Club, that was founded in 1998, by a group of sailor enthusiasts who envisioned to “create a unique global yacht club away from the waters, instead of another local club by the waters”. Indeed, the club’s facilities, surprisingly, have their base on the Swiss mountains and count more than 400 members from more than 30 countries around the world. The members of the club enjoy a unique network, year-round activities, both in the clubhouse and in the water, and support sailing projects ranging from junior to professional level.
Le Grand Bellevue Hotel features an 18-seat private cinema, where guests can enjoy every movie genre, from action to romance and from family movies to horror. The space is also available for hiring as an event venue or for a private screening, with the option of a tailored menu. Additionally, screenings in the Bellevue gardens take place during the summer.
While the grown ups enjoy their film, drinks or dinner, the kids can be happily entertained in the fun and cosy Children’s Playroom, that is open all year round. Filled with toys, games and activities, the Playroom will be the best place to let their imagination free.
Last but not least, Le Grand Bellevue Hotel offers its guests the opportunity to play in a tennis court where stars also swing their rackets. After the WTA and ATP Tennis take place in Gstaad, the hotel has exclusive access to the court. Private classes with professional tutors can be arranged at any time.
