Le Grand Bellevue
Re-branded, refurbished and revamped under a dynamic new ownership, Le Grand Bellevue opened its doors in December 2013 setting a new precedent in Gstaad’s luxury landscape. Combining skiing with a strong sense of responsibility, they offer a holistic approach to holidaying in Switzerland, with a Michelin-starred chef at the helm.
In the heart of Gstaad village on The Promenade itself, Le Grand Bellevue was originally built in 1912 as a Cure House and Spa, and continues to hold the title of the oldest palace hotel in Gstaad. They keep over 90% of their supply chain in Switzerland, and the hotel is family-owned, managed and designed; acquired on its Centenary by a visionary couple, Daniel and Davia Koetser.
Le Grand Bellevue boasts a casual yet refined interior. Bespoke furniture includes side-tables made from antique Alpine walking sticks alongside classic pieces such as George Smith armchairs upholstered in soft velvets and smart herringbone fabrics. While the hotel’s signature restaurant LEONARD’s on the ground floor offers exceptional food in a relaxed and sophisticated environment, the staff aim to reduce food waste.
This exceptional thoughtfulness within is mirrored in their offering outside of the hotel, having been a partner of the Theodora Charity which seeks to improve the everyday life of children in hospitals and is a non-profit organisation.
Winter 2018 sees Le Grand Bellevue take their responsible approach to hospitality further: their new Ski & Soul package – the first of its kind in Gstaad – combines active outdoor mountain pursuits with mental wellbeing and personal healing. From morning mindfulness by a frozen river to a Goat Milk & Honey Bath at Le Grand Spa, this is a truly unique way to escape the stresses of modern-day life.
