Rebranded and refurbished under a dynamic new ownership, Le Grand Bellevue opened its doors in December 2013, setting a new precedent in Gstaad chic as recognised in the Condé Nast Traveller Hotlist 2013 and Gold Standard 2014.
Located in the heart of Gstaad village, Le Grand Bellevue was originally built in 1912 as a Cure House and Spa, and continues to hold the title of the oldest palace hotel in Gstaad. The revamped 57-room hotel introduces a relaxed and residential approach to hospitality, stripped of the formalities and grandeur of its more traditional neighbours.
Family owned, managed and designed, together owners Daniel and Davia Koetser have created a casual yet refined interior. 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, offers Michelin-star food in a relaxed, sophisticated environment, while Le Petit Chalet is a traditional, rustic chalet nestled in the grounds seating just 18 guests with a menu of hearty Swiss dishes. There is also a Cigar Lounge, 18-seat private cinema and nightclub, bouquet, to keep residents entertained late into the night.
The 3,000sqm Le Grand Spa is a special sanctuary for wellness in partnership with organic English brand, Bamford, and plays host to world-class practitioners and bespoke retreats throughout the year.
