Le Grand Bellevue re-launched in January 2014 after a year-long renovation by dynamic young owners, Daniel and Davia Koetser.

In the heart of Gstaad village, the hotel was originally built in 1912 as a Cure House and Spa. Family-owned, managed and designed, the hotel comprises 57 bedrooms. Bold colours, eye-catching prints and elegant furniture make up the interiors.

The hotel’s signature restaurant LEONARD’s offers exceptional Michelin-starred cuisine whilst the more intimate 18-seat Le Petit Chalet serves up a menu of hearty Swiss dishes and its chic cocktail lounge bouquet focuses on molecular mixology.

Other features include a Cigar Lounge, Private Cinema, Yacht Club and a recently revamped 3,000sqm spa in partnership with organic English brand, Bamford.

To Stay

This 57-room hotel introduces a relaxed and residential approach to hospitality in Gstaad. Stripped of the formalities and grandeur of its more traditional neighbours, Le Grand Bellevue has a neighborhood spirit and the welcoming feel of a country house hotel. Exquisite style and eclectic design combines with a lively atmosphere that is vibrant and youthful yet embraces all generations.

Room design incorporates bold colours, eye-catching prints and elegant furniture, including side-tables made from antique Alpine walking sticks alongside classic pieces such as George Smith armchairs upholstered in soft velvets and smart herringbone fabrics.

In the communal lounge, guests can sink into sumptuous sofas, curl up in the Moroccan alcove with a book or chatter in gently swaying birdcage chairs.

To Eat

The hotel’s signature restaurant LEONARD’s on the ground floor offers exceptional food in a relaxed and sophisticated environment. Michelin-starred chef, Urs Gschwend delivers refined bistro-style cuisine, with signature dishes including Braised Knuckle of Veal Saffron Risotto, Bouillabaisse Marsellaise, Baba Limoncello and Basil Sorbet.

For a more rustic, intimate experience, Le Petit Chalet is a traditional chalet nestled in the hotel’s grounds seating just 18 guests with a menu of hearty Swiss dishes.

An Art-Deco Bar with dramatic domed ceilings boasts a racing green zinc-topped bar and 17-metre custom-made Chesterfield. The perfect setting for cocktails, its tongue-in-cheek list includes tipples such as Bellevue Smash, Fairytale and Devil’s Playground.

Home to one of the finest wine cellars in Gstaad, the hotel houses circa 10,000 bottles and the wine cellar is available for private dining or tastings. A Cigar Lounge, chic bouquet downtempo cocktail lounge and 18-seat Private Cinema will keep residents entertained late into the night.
