The Bürgenstock Hotel opens its doors

The new five star luxury Bürgenstock Hotel, in Switzerland, has opened its doors. The newly built hotel, with its modern architecture and contemporary design, boasts 102 rooms and suites and is sure to prove popular with travellers from the Middle East, with a particular emphasis on stunning luxury. In Switzerland, tourism from Gulf countries represents US$ 430 million.
 
 
Amenities at the stunning hotel include the Spices Kitchen & Terrace, Bürgenstock Terrace, Lakeview Bar & Lounge, Lakeview Ballroom, Cigar Lounge, cinema and private dining and Sky Boutique. Further surrounding buildings inaugurated include the Grand Residence Suites, Panorama Residence Suites, Diamond Domes (event and tennis) and an outdoor tennis court.
 
 
Bruno H. Schöpfer, Managing Director of Bürgenstock Selection, says: “We are delighted to welcome our first guests to the Bürgenstock Hotel. The hotel is perfect for travellers from the Middle East, with luxury at the very heart of everything we offer.”
 
 
Designed by Lucerne architects Rüssli Architekten AG, the hotel and its outdoor facilities are at the centre of the Bürgenstock Resort, which has undergone a nine-year, US$569 million restoration and remodelling project and extends over more than one kilometre. 
 
 
The landmark-protected Palace Hotel & Conferences (4* Superior), with its RitzCoffier Restaurant and the numerous conference rooms, the Sharq Oriental Restaurant, as well as the new sea and rail connection are already in operation. 
 
 
Schöpfer says: “I would like to thank my team, the project managers and all the planners, companies and suppliers involved for their commitment and excellent collaboration. Initial feedback from our guests has been very positive.” 
 
 
Robert Herr, General Manager of the Bürgenstock Resort, adds: “On several days the restaurants were already fully booked.”
The nine-hole golf course, the Blockhouse, the Hotel and Restaurant Taverne 1879 (3*), the Spycher, the Trogen country-style restaurant, the staff buildings, the Felsenweg path with the Hammetschwand Lift as well as the Hammetschwand mountain restaurant, have been open for a long time. 
 
 
Furthermore, the new shopping arcade in front of the Bürgenstock Hotel has been inviting guests to shop since early September. 
 
 
“Overall, planning and construction have taken nine years. For this, 147 building permits were required. Not to mention the landmark and environmental protection guidelines. Nevertheless, the effort was worth it. The result is a ‘hotel-village’ with an extraordinary mix of historic and modern buildings,” explains Schöpfer. 
 
 
Herr adds: “Its size, diverse offer, and breathtaking location high above Lake Lucerne, make the Bürgenstock Resort truly unique.”
 
 
Ten of the resort’s 12 restaurants and bars are now open, with a great deal of emphasis placed on culinary diversity: from Swiss cuisine, to a show grill, all the way to Asian, Oriental and Mediterranean dining. And even a French gourmet restaurant: The RitzCoffier at the Palace Hotel. A major coup for the Bürgenstock Resort was the successful hiring of the acclaimed three-star chef Marc Haeberlin as its Signature Chef for this cuisine. 
 
 
The restaurants set great store on authentic international recipes and also on numerous regional products. This means that the Bürgenstock Resort not only sources many food products from local suppliers, but also produces its own, such as wine from the Bürgenberg, honey, cheese and chocolate. An in-house herb garden is also part of the product range.
 
 
The spa, the Bürgenstock Hotel’s upper floors, and the Waldhotel Health & Medical Excellence will be inaugurated in the late autumn. The grand opening of the entire Bürgenstock Resort will take place in the spring of 2018.
