One of the ultimate European health and wellness destinations, the Bürgenstock Hotel is set amid the pure air of the Swiss Alps, with glorious views across Lake Lucerne. Guests arrive courtesy of the hotel’s own shuttle boat, MS Bürgenstock, and after a short climb on the scenic funicular railway are welcomed into a haven of health and wellbeing.

The five-star hotel’s 102 modern rooms and suites feature contemporary designs and deluxe furnishings as well as breathtaking panoramic lake and mountain vistas. With a long tradition of culinary excellence, Bürgenstock’s gourmet restaurants offer fine dining and imaginative interpretations of cuisines from around the world – from Asian spices to Italian soul food, hearty Swiss dishes and French haute cuisine.

But what makes this the perfect resort for the health-conscious as well as those who want to indulge in luxurious relaxation is the Alpine Spa, a state-of-the-art facility that offers a wealth of hydrothermal experiences, nourishing treatments and wellness expertise to help you draw energy and peace from the spectacular natural surroundings.

Alpine Spa

Alpine Spa

The world of spa and wellness at Bürgenstock Alpine Spa is set over an impressive 10,000sqm and offers five pools, including an infinity pool overlooking Lake Lucerne that’s heated to a balmy 35°C, with views over Mount Pilatus, Rigi and Lucerne.

An indoor pool is lined with comfortable daybeds in front of floor-to ceiling windows that provide spectacular views of Lake Lucerne, while the glistening blue outdoor Hollywood Pool is named in honour of the visiting celebrities who have taken spa breaks here over the years. These are complemented by a refreshing eco pool (10-14C), hot (35C) and cold (16C) plunge pools to get your senses tingling, and a saline-enriched floating pool that provides unparalleled skin benefits.

Four panoramic saunas and an Alpine steam bath provide an opportunity to relieve muscle tension and detoxify your body before taking time out in one of the spa’s luxurious silent relaxation areas or retreating to the spa garden with its Bull’s Eye pool bar and Roman pavilion.

A total of 13 treatment rooms are home to a dedicated team of therapists who deliver a comprehensive range of treatments including massage, scrubs and facials using products from Biologique Recherche, Barbara Sturm, KOS Paris and 111Skin.

Perfect for a workout at any time of the day – or night – a state-of-the-art fitness centre is equipped with bikes and treadmills, and guests can also join in a programme of fitness, yoga and Pilates classes.

To get you looking tip-top after a hard day of relaxation, Riccardo Castelletti and his team offer a menu of mani-pedi, hair, makeup and waxing treatments in the Backstage Hair Spa.

For those looking to enjoy a wellness break in more private surroundings, Bürgenstock also offers the Hollywood-inspired Audrey, Shirley and Sophia private spa suites, complete with their own saunas, Jacuzzis and treatment, lounge and kitchen spaces.
