5 Luxury Resorts in Switzerland that will make you feel like Royalty

Home to luxury brands such as Rolex, Swatch and Victorinox, Switzerland has long been associated with high quality and attention to detail. Its most luxurious hotels maintain the country’s high-class reputation, too, offering guests everything from Michelin-starred restaurants to helicopter rides to the most relaxing and pampering escape one could dream off. 

Whether you’re heading to the heart of Geneva or the romantic Lausanne, here’s my pick of the most luxurious hotels that awaits you in Switzerland. 
The Woodward, Geneva 
Located in the heart of Geneva in a historic post-Haussmann style building on Quai Wilson, The Woodward features an exceptional location with views of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc. The property has been entirely renovated by the renowned architectural firm Pierre-Yves Rochon with 26 spacious suites in a refined, contemporary style. 

Featuring two gourmet restaurants led by Michelin-star chefs Olivier Jean and Alain Verzeroli, as well as a Guerlain Spa ready to welcome both international visitors and local Genevans alike, The Woodward offers the most discerning of traveler a warm welcome that is both glamorous and authentic

Angleterre & Residence
The perfect blend of splendid tradition and refined modernity, Hotel Angleterre and Residence dates back to the 18th century and delivers four-star luxury. Set around a lovely courtyard garden, there are four main residential buildings, each unique in style. Explore the beautiful, historic town of Lausanne, or stroll the shores of Lake Geneva before unwinding beside the hotel’s secluded pool and luxuriating with top-notch service. In the evening, take in your glorious surroundings with an aperitif on the terrace of L’Accademia restaurant. 

Discreet with a calming atmosphere, Hotel Angleterre and Residence has the charming allure of a private lakeside home. Make the most of its proximity to the fascinating city of Lausanne, with its winning combination of medieval beauty and magnificent natural setting

Chateau d’Ouchy
Nestled on the banks of Lake Geneva with magnificent views across the water, Château d’Ouchy is a striking neo-gothic castle reconstructed in the late 1800s into a hotel. A recent renovation has sensitively brought this gem back to life which now provides 50 delightfully unique rooms and suites, a superb restaurant, an inviting wellness area with a hamman and sauna and its own boat for lake excursions.

Château d’Ouchy’s fabulous setting ensures peace and tranquillity with stylish rooms and suites that retain many period features. The décor and furnishings are crisp and contemporary with smart wood floors that highlight the original marble and stone.

Lausanne Palace

The hotel dates from 1915 and was the last of Switzerland’s high-end palace hotels to open during the tourism boom that began in the 19th century. Visiting today, it feels as though every decade of its century-long history is preserved within its walls. Located at the centre of Lausanne, Lausanne Palace concentrates the essence of the city within its walls while watching over the Olympic capital with a mysterious and attractive air. 

With unsurpassed views of Lake Geneva and the Alps, the hotel offers a natural sense of wellness in sync with the acclaimed Lausanne Palace Spa. Programs are tailored to a guest's specific needs, and the healing properties of the indoor pool, sauna, and hammam are complemented by traditional and ancient therapies. On one side, the landscape of Lake Geneva; on the other, the show of Franck Pelux and his brigade strive to offer culinary creations paying homage to French cuisine.

Beau-Rivage Palace
Set on ten acres of private gardens on the shore of Lake Geneva in Lausanne, the Beau-Rivage Palace exudes serenity and history. During the early 20th century, the Belle Époque hotel was the scene of two peace-treaty signings. Today, it attracts international attention with its two-Michelin-star restaurant, Anne-Sophie Pic au Beau Rivage Palace. 

Three other restaurants offer local fusion, Japanese and Italian cuisine, while the 75,000-bottle wine cellar contains many vintages from the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Lavaux vineyard. The Cinq Mondes Spa has indoor and outdoor swimming pools, nine treatment rooms and two tennis courts.
