On the shores of glittering Lake Geneva, beneath snowy alpine peaks in Vevey, Switzerland, the Grand Hotel Du Lac celebrates its 150th anniversary this year. The Relais & Chateaux 5-star accommodations extend to 50 elegant, spacious guestrooms and suites, and the Michelin-starred Les Saisons restaurant — the creative domain of executive chef Thomas Neeser. Additional dining spaces include La Veranda, a bar and a sumptuous lounge with seasonal dining available at the outdoor pool during warm months. In the Oriental Lounge, replete with Chinese tapestries and a fireplace straight out of a storybook, guests indulge in a cup of Moroccan mint tea, sample tobacco-free shisha and relax over traditional afternoon tea service.
A member of the Swiss Deluxe Hotels collection, the property first opened in 1868. The romantic spaces were the setting for the novel Hotel du Lac by Anita Brookner (Vintage, 1995), and reopened in 2007 following a renovation directed by French interior architect Pierre-Yves Rochon. Guests can spoil themselves with indulgent treatments and therapies at the hotel’s Dr. Burgener Switzerland Care & Spa, with choices including the Hydrating Swiss Milk wrap and the Swiss Cocoa wrap, along with the Volcanic Glacial massage. The spa is also fitted with a sauna and Turkish bath.
