The Grand Hotel Park celebrates its 100th anniversary


Gstaad has always been a favourite spot of the jet-set and the glitterati – the ideal place to “see and be seen”. But next to the many celebrities who come here, this world-famous and exclusive Swiss resort is famed for one thing: its breathtaking scenery.


Legend has it that God personally extended his mighty hand through the dispersing banks of cloud, laid it on the Bernese Alps and created this stupendous landscape. Travellers confronted with the sheer beauty of the area, which is approximately 1000 metres above sea level, will not find it difficult to give credence to this myth.


Set amidst a manicured park high above Gstaad, the Grand Hotel Park offers a unique view of the majestic Bernese Alps. The property has a unique atmosphere, combining luxury and refinement, wellbeing and savoir-vivre.


For its 100th anniversary in 2010, the Grand Hotel Park is offering itself a rejuvenating cure and will therefore undergo some renovations. Thereafter, its guests will be welcomed to its new contemporary design, harmonizing traditional chalet-style with state-of-the-art elegancy. Due to this large renovation program, the hotel will remain closed from mid-march until December 17th, 2010. 

With respect for nature, tradition and sustainability, the choice of the necessary materials will be of high importance. Rooms, Suites and the new created Penthouse Suites (approximate size between 123m2 and 400m2) will become a good combination between contemporary and traditional style of the nearby luxurious chalets. The materials used will be wood, natural stone, and fabrics and cloths will be replaced with natural wool.


We will follow the same guidelines of decoration on the rest of the building like the restaurants and bars, the lobby and all the other public areas. The Spa of the hotel has already been renovated 4 years ago and therefore will not be changed.
