The easy-going town of Vevey is the ideal hub for excursions deep into the heart of the Montreux Vevey Riviera region. With an endless array of reflective lakes and ice-capped mountains on offer, this is one of Switzerland’s most picturesque destinations.
The Vevey train station is just minutes away, while guests can arrive from the Geneva International Airport in about an hour.
Rooms & Suites
With a focus on the finer details, every one of the immaculate rooms and suites offers a captivating insight into the lives of the 19th-century bourgeoise. Sunlight piles into the rooms through their delicate French windows each day, some of which lead onto a secluded balcony with magnificent lake or alpine views.
Whether it be the junior or the enormous 125 m2 Leman suite, each suite features ample floor space and extravagant décor and design. None of this should come as a surprise, however, considering the entire interior was designed by the renowned Pierre-Yves Rochon.
Though despite all this old-world charm, the Grand Hotel du Lac Vevey is far from archaic. A high-tech entertainment system, a Nespresso machine, a fully-stocked minibar, and an attractive office space are just some of its many mod cons.
Spa & Wellness
Contrasting sharply with the hotel’s distinctly old-fashioned style, its high-tech in-house spa boasts cutting edge design. With mood lighting and exposed pine rafters, the sauna and steam bath are both idyllic places to unwind. To really see your worries float away, two separate relaxation rooms provide the utmost calm and tranquillity.
An elite Haute Couture skincare solution caters to the guests every beautification need. As the brainchild of Dr. Pauline Burgener, the scientifically proven program takes a sample of your skin to prepare a tailor-made skincare regime. Guests may bring the findings and products home with them to continue their path to perfection well after checking out of the hotel.
In addition to the spa, the hotel features a sun lounger-strewn heated outdoor swimming pool and a family in-house travel agent who takes care of all your tourism needs.
Food & Drink
Once guests have had their fun in the spa, the hotel’s other main attraction is its high-end gastronomic delights. Featuring as many as eight different culinary spaces, guests will be spoilt for choice when it comes time to eat.
For French and international cuisine from a celebrated Michelin Star cook, it’s hard to go past Les Saisons. Nevertheless, discerning travellers may wish to book Chef Thomas Neese all to themselves in a private tasting session that’s sure to delight.
Other more low-key eateries abound in the hotel, and there’s even a divine Sunday brunch courtesy of Mr. Neese himself.
Wine aficionados will want to drop into the downstairs cellar to sample some fine vino from the region and abroad. If a quiet beer or a cocktail appeal, then the Asian inspired Henryk’s Bar is the place to be.
The hotel has an interesting choice of spaces and a team of specialists who can help you to organize any professional or private event from banquets or seminars to weddings or business meetings. Meeting rooms are available to host between 2 and 300 guests.
