A place of change: Gstaad Palace invests in new rooms

The world of hotel design is changing. And that includes age old luxury hotels like the Gstaad Palace. The Gstaad Palace has always kept pace with the times: it was once the only residence in the Saanenland region to feature hot running water in each guest room, while later the same can be said of telephone connections and spa baths. Today, the factor of space is more important than ever before for holidaymakers, with guests desiring more space for their wellbeing. From this summer season, the luxury hotel has built five new Double Superior Rooms – according to the motto of turn two into one. Both the rooms – which are furnished in a discreet Alpine Chic design - and the spacious bathrooms are in perfect keeping with the spirit of the times. One even features its own Hammam steam bath.

31.07.2018

From this summer onwards, the Gstaad Palace has been on the market with 90 rooms. That’s five rooms fewer than before. The reduction has clearly added value, however: ten former rooms have been combined to create five Superior Double Rooms, with the styling having been overseen by the English interior designer, Marina Nickels. In this way, the Gstaad Palace has strengthened its resort feeling. After all, the guest surveys are clear: staying in the hotel is one thing, while residing, relaxing and meeting friends in one's room is another. In the Palace in particular, guests tend to book their rooms for longer stays and travel with their whole family, often including adult children. «The new rooms are a direct response to Airbnb and co.,» explains Andrea Scherz, the third generation owner and General Manager of the Gstaad Palace. «A consistent focus was placed on comfort and wellbeing when designing the rooms. The guests ultimately want to be able to use the room in all of its dimensions. That is the new form of luxury.» Quality of life rather than straightforward functionality was the approach for both the summer and the winter in the rooms, which are an average of 48 square metres in size.

Country house style for high quality comfort

The results are plain to see: the elegant oak cladding in the bedrooms and bathrooms as well as the use of gentle shades of red and brown radiate a sense of English elegance which is further supported by the time-proven elements of a classic and modern Alpine chic. All of the rooms feature a king size bed, a large dressing area as well as a spacious bathroom with a bath and shower – and in addition to the classic bathing facilities with a view of the tower, the room on the sixth floor has its own Hammam spa. The comfortable sofa bed or the reclining chair is the ideal place in which to relax after an action-packed day of sightseeing in the Gstaad summer wonderland. Were it not for the stunning views of the Wildhorn or Eggli mountains or the permanent ice of Les Diablerets, one might almost be at home.

 

«We have already achieved our goal: our newest category of room, of which the hotel now has 15, has become the most popular. We are therefore in perfect keeping with the spirit of the times,» says Andrea Scherz with contentment, who invested some 1.5 million Swiss Francs in converting the new rooms. All of the work has been completed by local specialists, further demonstrating a commitment to the quality of the resident builders. And the efforts to reposition the best hotel at its location are paying dividends: in the ranking of hotels published last week by Swiss publication BILANZ, the Gstaad Palace climbed two places to take 2nd place in the best holiday hotels in Switzerland. The classic Swiss holiday hotel continues to enthuse today –just as it did more than 100 years ago – with «contemporary perfection», as the reviewers call it.

Out of the Palace and into the great outdoors: with the new guide «Nature»

As attractive as the new rooms may be, the summertime scenery around the Gstaad is equally as stunning. And the ideal way of exploring it is on foot. To prevent the guests from setting out into the blue and green of the scenery without any sense of orientation however, the Gstaad Palace has created the perfect companion in the shape of its hiking guide «Nature». This handy companion fits into every rucksack and contains insider tips as well as excellent recommendations for hikes and walks in the local region. The new routes have been specifically oriented to the varying requirements and expectations of the hotel guests: whether it is a challenging high-altitude walk on the Rinderberg, a hiking trip with an overnight stay at the Walig mountain inn, a glacier adventure on Glacier 3000 or a stroll in the local area suitable for children and a pushchair, the guide includes something for every taste and fitness level. The brochure also provides insights into the local specialities, activities and tourist sights. In this way, guests are provided with the possibility to discover their favourite places around the Gstaad Palace.

A first-rate summer in the mountains: culture and sports at the Palace in all of its varieties

Whoever said the summer was too quiet could not have been more wrong: In addition to excellent days of hiking, this year’s guests at the Gstaad Palace can once again look forward to enjoying a variety of cultural and sporting highlights. In addition to classics such as the «Country Night Gstaad» (7 until 9 September 2018) or the traditional brunch which takes place every Sunday in July and August, this year, particular enjoyment beckons for fans of sports cars and golden oldies. And there’s a particular treat in store for those who like traditional German «Schlager» pop music: on 9 September 2018, Beatrice Egli as well as Hansi Hinterseer & Tiroler Echo are performing at the festival tent in Gstaad.

The «Gstaad Palace Challenge» weekend rally promises breathtaking views and fast cars (31 August until 2 September 2018), while at the second «BERGKÖNIG» Swiss Vintage Cycling Festival (25 and 26 August 2018), friends of the bicycle can enjoy themselves and admire old bicycles.

Another stand-out event is the Chill out Pool Party on 11 August 2018 at the Gstaad Palace Olympic swimming pool, which is celebrating its 90th birthday this year. Built in 1928 by the then architect and pioneer of sports constructions Beda Hefti, the pool remains a piece of architectural beauty to this day.

Double the highs with cycling at the Gstaad Palace

Gstaad Palace is celebrating two new highlights at the start of the cycling season: First of all, the legend among Swiss five-star hotels has now been classified as a Bikehotel. The hotel is the ideal starting point for road racers and mountain bikers and their journeys of discovery through the lovely Saanenland and over countless passes nearby. Secondly, the Palace doors are opening for anyone who wants to be the King or Queen for once – or better still the BERGKÖNIG: as anyone who treats themselves to a regal weekend at the white fairytale castle lucks out during the Swiss festival for vintage bikes of the same name
from 25 and 26 August 2018.

28.06.2018

«Anyone who cycles, gets much more out of life,» is the saying among bike fans. A motto that takes on a whole new meaning this summer at Gstaad Palace: Anyone arriving by bike, will find first-class service at the hotel recently classified as a Bikehotel by hotelleriesuisse. For example, the Palace family not only constantly provides tips and tour recommendations to discover this bike region’s most beautiful spots par excellence but also ensures cyclists, mountain bikers and e-bikers have the necessary equipment and tools. Guests who have not brought their own bikes can borrow one of four e-bikes by the Bernese bicycle manufacturer « Thömus » from the hotel. «Gstaad is a real biking paradise in the summer. Gentle routes for leisurely cyclists, steep ramps and passes for the ambitious and cool downhills for the brave provide the right mix. The prospect of a beneficial spa treatment after the tour and a delicious meal give anyone looking for the slow mobility trend a break,» says Andrea Scherz, General Manager and Owner of Gstaad Palace.

Be King or Queen of the mountains for once: BERGKÖNIG Gstaad
When passionate cyclists, vintage fans and cycling sport legends rendezvous in Gstaad on the last weekend in August and take their much-loved bikes made from historical steel, woollen jerseys and leather shoes out for a ride, then the cry goes out again: «Long live the BERGKÖNIG Gstaad!» Following the successful first edition in 2017, this unique cycling experience is being held again from 25 to 26 August 2018. And it’s well known that mountain kings also reside regally: Gstaad Palace has put together a package especially for this.

One highlight of the cycling festival is the short sprint from Gstaad’s pedestrian area to the legendary Gstaad Palace in the Oberbort area where all participants are invited to a welcome aperitif the evening before. Anyone thirsty for a sporting challenge, chooses the long circuit the following day: 103 kilometres on tough narrow mountain roads are on the racing programme. Owners of less robust bikes, on the other hand, can enjoy extremely dignified cycling on the «Pedaleur de Charme» route. And anyone who prefers passive sports should not miss the 25 exceptional bikes displayed at Gstaad Palace as part of the «Le Vélo» exhibition and competition from 25 to 26 August 2018. «The BERGKÖNIG Festival is much more than just a race: It offers all vintage lovers the opportunity to meet up, compete and spend an unforgettable time together in a unique mountain panorama,» states Andrea Scherz, also a passionate e-biker.

Investments in grand style: New Classic suites at Gstaad Palace

While the Saanenland glitters under a fresh blanket of snow, the Gstaad Palace makes just as fresh and elegant an appearance: five new Classic suites on all five floors of the fairytale castle impress with alpine chic and elegant English understatement. The owners, the Scherz family, used roughly two million for the conversion this time. Gstaad Palace gives high priority to continuous modernisation and investments. And more renovation work is already in sight for summer 2018.

23.01.2018

The calculation is simple. Two rooms are being turned into a new large room – a Classic suite. And the reasons for this building work are clear: “guests demand more space nowadays and appreciate hotel rooms where there’s plenty of room for privacy and socialising. We are meeting this demand by constantly giving our hotel the desired form,” explains Andrea Scherz, the third generation of owners and General Manager. The committed hotelier has invested roughly two million Swiss francs in the modern room layout on all five floors of his hotel.

The well-known English interior architect Marina Nickels is responsible for the Classic suites’ design. The guiding principle for the designer who lives in Nyon is always colour from which she develops the overall composition. She discovers the colours in the hotel itself, for example in historical materials and textures from the Palace’s more than 100-year history. The state-of-the-art rooms are developed hand in hand with the owner Andrea Scherz, who is responsible for trend scouting and the rooms’ technical equipment.

The ambience of the suites is classical modern. They’re inspired by an English country house style interspersed with elements of everlasting alpine chic. The new suites at the palace cover 72 square metres. The large king size bed stands in the centre of the bedroom, in classic box spring quality fitted with first-class, handmade mattresses from ELITE (in Aubonne). Besides this, the suite has a separate living room, large walk-in wardrobe and spacious bathroom with additional bath and shower. Adjoining the living room is a comfortable seating area for lunch or dinner, a sofa or sofa bed, bar and an extra bathroom with shower. From the spacious balcony the view extends from the Wildhorn over the imposing Diablerets group to the gentle Eggli.

Baton change on board of directors and with maître d’hôtel

Two important personnel changes are pending in the Gstaad Palace team: Romuald Bour, Deputy Director for many years and Director for the last two and a half years, and Gildo Bocchini – at the hotel for 49 years and the First Maître d’Hotel –are handing over the batons to their successors. Vittorio Di Carlo is taking over the corresponding management tasks as the new Deputy Director and Andrea Buschini as the First Maître d’Hôtel at the legendary flagship hotel run by the Scherz family in Gstaad.

16.08.2017

He was always visible, discreet and ran the five restaurants at the Gstaad Palace professionally at all times. Gildo Bocchini was active in service for 49 years and worked for guests from all over the world as the First Maître d’Hôtel (he has been in this position since summer 1990). The distinguished professional from Cesena is now retiring. Gildo’s successor will be Andrea Buschini. He has been working at the Palace for 15 years – firstly as Commis de Rang (summer 1990), then as Chef de Rang. He was promoted to First Maître d’Hôtel Lobby Bar in 2006 and then finally as deputy to Gildo from winter 2013/14.                                                         

There is also a change on the board of directors: Romuald Bour has served the Gstaad Palace with his experience for 18 years – originally as a cashier (1999), then as a Food & Beverage Manager (from 2003), as Deputy Director since 2010 and as Director for the last two and a half years. He is now setting up his own business with his own catering concept. «Gildo Bocchini and Romuald Bour have contributed considerably to our hotel’s success with their great loyalty and consistency. We wish them both the very best, privately and professionally, and will stay in close contact with them in future too», says Andrea Scherz, General Manager and Owner.

Andrea Scherz is overseeing the F&B department himself again. Vittorio Di Carlo will now be responsible for the Rooms Division, Housekeeping, Spa and Human Resources. The new Deputy Director, a qualified hotelier from the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne EHL, is 31 years old and has worked at reputable establishments such as the Four Seasons Whistler (as Rooms Division Assistant Manager) and previously at Le Richemond Hotel (as the Front Office Manager) as well as at the Mandarin Oriental in Geneva. He started his career in the hotel sector at the Forte Village Resort on Sardinia. He has been working at Gstaad Palace since last year.

As Roy Emerson tennis weeks continue at Gstaad Palace, the legend is awarded the Golden Badge of Honor by Swiss Tennis

Described by Wimbledon as ‘one of the greatest ever men to wield a tennis racket’, former tennis Number One, Roy Emerson has been awarded the golden Badge of Honor by Swiss Tennis in recognition for all that he has done for the sport. Roy’s second home is the tennis courts of Gstaad Palace where he is welcomed back every summer to share his expertise with the hotel’s guests during the annual series of Roy Emerson Tennis Weeks.  

25.07.2017

Roy, who holds the Men’s World Record of 28 Grand Slam Titles, was also five time winner of the Swiss Open – held annually in Gstaad; the Saanenland court is now named the Roy Emerson Arena.

A location close to the Australian sportsman’s heart, Roy has been visiting Gstaad and Gstaad Palace for over four decades to play ‘tennis in paradise’. Together, Gstaad Palace and Roy Emerson created a series of Tennis Weeks which have been held exclusively at the Palace since 1974.

The Roy Emerson Tennis Weeks combine the hotel’s stylish accommodation, exceptional and personalised service, gourmet cuisine and unparalleled facilities (with four tennis courts on-site) and in-person tuition from Roy Emerson and his international group of professionals. They are available annually at Gstaad Palace throughout the summer season (June – August). 

This month, Swiss Tennis - the governing body of tennis in Switzerland – bestowed the esteemed Badge of Honor upon Roy Emerson which was decided upon by their President, René Stammbach and unanimously backed by the organisation’s delegates.

Andrea Scherz, General Manager of Gstaad Palace whose father came up with the idea for the Tennis Weeks at the Palace together with Roy, said: ‘We are, of course, very proud of Roy and his wife, Joy. Having had this champion in our midst for almost 35 years is a great privilege and his tennis camps are as special as he is’.

The Roy Emerson Tennis Weeks at the Gstaad Palace have been recognised as the best tennis camp in the world by Tennis Resorts Online, 2008 – 2016.

25.07.2017

The Gstaad Palace has picked out the best of Switzerland in five hours, together with Air-Glaciers – for a “Lunch by Helicopter”.

Heavenly enjoyment on the Glacier 3000
At lunch time, the helicopter lands on a spectacular landing place at 3000 metres above sea level. The Champagne aperitif will be served on the edge of an almost vertical cliff in the Diablerets massif.

Exclusive in Switzerland:
Luxury cosmetics line Margy's Monte Carlo new at the Palace Spa

Royal Mediterranean flair comes to the Gstaad Palace with the luxury cosmetics line «Margy’s Monte Carlo»: The facial treatment concept of the Swiss-by-choice Margie Lombard, which Princess Charlène of Monaco has already pampered herself with, is now available only at the Palace Spa. These completely natural care products, developed in Vevey, contain ingredients produced in the body and counteract ageing highly effectively. 

13.07.2017

The Palace Spa is celebrating a real Swiss premier with the introduction of the new facial treatments under the brand “Margy’s Monte Carlo”. For the founder Margie Lombard – Swiss-by-choice through and through – it is clear: A high-quality, effective skincare product consists of pure, undiluted ingredients. This is why, for these products developed and packed in Vevey, she uses exclusively pure substances produced in the body, which she has been able to imitate using Swiss bio-technology. As a young entrepreneur, Margie Lombard learnt that collagen and hyaluronic acid are two fundamental elements of our body. They have been proven to influence the moisture content of the skin. If this is intact, it has a beneficial effect for a youthful appearance – uneven and wrinkled places also automatically become softer and gentler. In addition, vitamin A in the selection of “Margy’s” provides elasticity, while Vitamin E as an antioxidant has an anti-inflammatory effect and supports the hydrolipid layer of the skin. All products are completely natural, contain no perfume at all and are formed on the basis of sandalwood oil and geranium oil.

From Gstaad out into the world and back again
“My products are not exotic, but instead classic and clearly results-oriented. Beautiful skin requires sound treatments based on clear biochemical laws, and not magic”, explains Margie Lombard. The native Alsatian and Swiss-by-choice has dedicated herself entirely to skincare. At the age of 18 she already attended the well-known CARITA Institut in Paris and learned the craft of cosmetics from the experts. With this precious degree in her hand, she came to Gstaad, where she managed a cosmetics salon independently. Her talented hands and her beneficial facial treatments quickly became appreciated by guests from all over the world. Soon her career was already taking off. Despite her love of the Saanenland, she moved on: She studied cosmetology and after long research founded her own line of spa products. Many famous people were now among Margie’s customers – including even Princess Charlène of Monaco. After stays in Dubai, Hong Kong and Monte Carlo, Margie Lombard then returned to the Bernese Oberland with her care formula. “I am convinced that I have found the “place-to-be” for my brand and my concept at the Gstaad Palace”, says Margie Lombard happily. She has been a resident of Switzerland for more than 20 years, and lives with her husband and son in Zurich.

Unique in Switzerland: “Margy’s Monte Carlo” at the Gstaad Palace Spa

Staff transition in the Palace Kitchen

franz w. Faeh takes over from Seasoned masters Peter Wyss & Hugo Weibel

04.03.2017

For over 40 years they made an impact on the culinary signature of Gstaad Palace: Executive Chef Peter Wyss and Chef de Cuisine Hugo Weibel. Now the two seasoned masters are passing the cooking spoon on to Franz W. Faeh, who has also been closely associated with the Swiss hotel icon for decades. Raised in Gstaad, he completed his apprenticeship at the Palace before he set out in the wide world, particularly to Asia. Now he has returned to his homeland and has been managing the Palace kitchen successfully since this winter season.

“A great era is coming to an end: Peter Wyss (67) and Hugo Weibel (60) are a godsend for our establishment – where does one still find such loyal and passionate companions nowadays. We, all guests, truly owe so much to them, in culinary as well as human terms”, says Andrea Scherz, Gstaad Palace General Manager and owner in the third generation. Under the aegis of Ernst Andrea Scherz – 46 years ago – young Peter Wyss started out as Commis Saucier in the winter season 1971/72.

The seasoned master – he has been Executive Chef at the world-famous Palace since 1984 – has cooked for kings, stars and starlets, in the hotel and in the residences, in chalets at Oberbort and all over the world. He, who in the early 1970s actually wanted to open his own Italian restaurant in Delhi, has brought the great wide world of cuisine to Gstaad. Always inspired and with his nose to the wind, Peter Wyss – together with his loyal counterpart Hugo Weibel (who also started as Commis Saucier in 1976 and has been Chef de Cuisine since 1987) – developed a classic, refined signature for the three restaurants of the best establishment in the area. To this day it is characterised by straightforwardness, honesty and precision, and relinquishes the great stage to the true flavour of basic ingredients. Now the well-attuned duo is leaving the hotel – but will continue to be available to regular guests for exclusive catering events on request.

Franz W. Faeh – also no stranger in Gstaad – has taken over the sceptre as Executive Chef from this winter season. The 56-year-old Saanen native completed his apprenticeship at the Palace during the period from 1978 to 1981. But culinary career adventures soon lured him out into the wide world – particularly to Asia, where among other things he was active for the Regent Group for 16 years in Hong Kong, Jakarta as well as Bangkok, and there he regularly cooked for the Thai royal family. Now he is letting the lightness and subtlety of Asian cuisine, particularly that from Thailand where Faeh got most of his inspiration, flow into his creations which he continues to develop into a wholesome, modern interpretation of Palace classics with the assistance of a 55-person brigade de cuisine. His menus are composed of international elements, the recipes and ingredients are much lighter and the presentation fancier than in the past. “We want evolution, not revolution. We endeavour to emphasise true gustation, just as Peter Wyss did. In the process, creativity is never an end in itself, but always serves the holistic taste experience”, says Franz W. Faeh, who successfully led the Le Vieux Manoir in Murten before his return to Gstaad.
