Set on a hill overlooking the beautiful town of Gstaad, the Gstaad Palace offers a breathtaking view of the majestic Swiss Alps.

Immerse yourself in the more than one hundred year old history of the Gstaad Palace: the luxury hotel in Switzerland opened its doors on 8 December 1913. Successfully: it was decided to build an extension after the first season. In the 1960s gala dinners with international stars such as Louis Armstrong and Marlene Dietrich cause a great sensation. Andrea Scherz is the third generation now to manage the hotel.

Gstaad Palace has earned an unrivaled reputation for discreet, refined hospitality over the years, and has always welcomed the most discerning international clientele. This elegant hotel offers guests a truly memorable stay in distinguished surroundings and a relaxing atmosphere; over 250 employees are dedicated to fulfilling every wish.

Enjoy traditional Swiss dishes, savory barbecue specialties, an exceptional Italian menu and exquisite gourmet cuisine at the hotel’s 5 superb restaurants. Unwind in the relaxed lobby bar, the stylish Bar du Grill or the famous GreenGo nightclub.

The hotel features a spa and health club spread over 19375 ft², including 8 treatment rooms, a private spa suite, saunas and steam baths, relaxation areas with spectacular views, an indoor pool and an outdoor pool with hot tub, a state-of-the-art gym, a pilates studio and a unique hammam experience with 7 rooms. There is also a racquetball court and 4 outdoor tennis courts.

Whether it’s the spectacular Penthouse suite, majestic Tower suite or individually designed Junior suites – every suite exudes alpine elegance and subtle luxury. And from every suite you have a magical view over the Swiss mountains.

Whatever you want from a spa complex the Palace Spa will exceed your expectations. The exclusive wellness complex offers eight treatment rooms, a private spa, saunas and steam baths, a unique Hammam experience, a lounge with fireplace, a spectacular view and much more over 1,800 square metres. The mountain setting is also reflected in the spa with its 60 metre long stone wall built with granite from the nearby Blausee region.

When pure elegance and luxury is not enough for you, go for unique experienxes and adventures:

Mountaineering & Climbing


Synonymous with the glitterati and fittingly twinned with Cannes, Gstaad appears smaller than its reputation – too little for its designer ski boots, as it were. Michael Jackson, Roger Moore, Paris Hilton and even Margaret Thatcher have flexed platinum cards to let their hair down here. While the principal competitive sports are celebrity-spotting and gazing wistfully into Gucci-filled boutiques, others might enjoy the fine hiking and skiing.

Switzerland is a harmonious tableau of beautiful images, a slideshow of epic proportions that is easy to step into, and travellers have been seduced ever since the days of the Grand Tour and Alpinism’s Golden Age in the 19th century, and the birth of winter tourism in the Alps in the 1930s. From the intoxicating chink of Verbier glitterati hobnobbing over Champagne to the reassuring bell jangle of silky black Val d’Hérens cattle being mucked out in the Valais, Switzerland mixes rural and urban with astonishing ease, grace and precision. Ride a little red train between peak and pine, soak in mountain spa waters, snowshoe to your igloo or scamper across medieval bridges and know that this small landlocked country will be picture perfect, with not a hair out of place.
