The Property: It was at the beginning of the 20th century, more precisely in 1906, that the game of golf to this ski area of Switzerland. From a wooden hut that served as a cloakroom, a bar and a restaurant for the players of this new sport, that this Grand Hotel was born. It was at this time that the English clientele discovered the beautiful and vast grassy expanses that, over several hectares, stretched in gentle slopes from the nearby forests.
As soon as it opened, the hotel became the privileged place of pleasure for royalty and celebrities. The royal families of Belgium, Holland and Portugal preceded other crowned heads such as Queen Marie-José of Italy and the Earl of Barcelona, that have stayed here.
Like the Palaces of Gstaad or St. Moritz, the hotel has been able to adapt to a historical and social evolution that has seen the emergence of a new clientele. Modern-day managers, business leaders, dynamic executives or businesswomen feel the need to find a comfortable and qualitative haven of tranquillity. It is not without reason that such companies, both national and multi-national, prefer this hotel for their seminar or congress.
The hotel is set at around 10,000 metres and currently comprises just 85 hotel rooms and suites. Planning consent is to convert one building from hotel rooms to apartments – around 55:45 in sq. mtrs – 32,000 in total – leaving one with 19 apartments and 48 hotel rooms, with 36 parking places. (to be built). The golf course is 18-hole, designed by a top notch ex Ryder Cup golfer. Indoor heated pool in a full-on spa.
The hotel has two top-end cuisine restaurants and bar with terrace.
