Burgenstock Hotel and Alpine Spa review: Float in the clouds, while swimming

The Burgenstock Hotel and Alpine Spa in Switzerland is the hot new luxury destination you cannot miss. The location's 145-year history is just a part of the hotel's charm

On a cape 500 meters over Lake Lucerne and positioned atop the Bürgenberg mountain ridge, suspended mid-air with spirit-lifting lake and Alp views in the core of Central Switzerland, this hotel and Alpine spa is a class act. Arrive in style via the Bürgenstock shuttle boat and fabled funicular straight up to the lobby of this outstanding property. The brand new hotel, with its contemporary design and up-to-date design, is part of the well-known Bürgenstock Resort. 

Warmth is a ritual on the Bürgenstock. Many famed guests, including the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Charlie Chaplin, have stayed since the first Grand Hotel unlocked in 1873. A sanctuary from the outside world, the rooms are spacious and serene. All rooms have a view of the lake but of course! Go for a Lakeview Panaroma Bay suite and enjoy the glittering lights of Lucerne in the night from your bathtub. If you are travelling with family booking a two bedroom suite is a good idea.

Bürgenstock is unmatched in Switzerland for its active recreation services as well as the paraphernalia required for each activity. Tennis, golf (read a 9-hole golf course), horseback riding, curling, water sports, hiking and bike trails are all nearby. To cocoon aching muscles at the end of the day, a spa is called for, and of course the pride and joy of the hotel is its 10,000-square-meter Alpine Spa, one of the best in Switzerland is something else altogether, from the indoor pool with its floor to ceiling windows, the saunas, the massages and treatments and lastly the heated outdoor infinity pool which overlooks the lake and Lucerne. The restaurants and bar tick all the boxes. From fine and creative fares to glamorous and contemporary versions of kitchens from far and near, the seven restaurants include 57 Gault Millau points and one Michelin star, their bestowed kitchens are held in amazing architectural and up-to-date intended locations, all being effortlessly united into a complete experience. Service is as refined and proficient as you might anticipate — observant without being overbearing.
