Dolder Grand Hotel in Zurich, Switzerland
The luxurious Dolder Grand Hotel in Zurich Switzerland has a long tradition of excellence, going back as far as 1899.
The Dolder Grand Hotel re-opened its doors in 2008, to its élite clientèle after an extensive renovation period of four years. After touring the hotel, it became quite evident why it has taken them so long to re-open.
The elegant Dolder had been truly transformed into an oasis of well-being. The famous architects, Foster & Partners, have turned this very traditional and monumental Zurich landmark into a luxury city resort.
Sitting on the hills of Zurich, overlooking the lake’s busy shores as well as the Alps, the hotel offers a serene environment of forest walkways whilst, at the same time, it is just minutes from the city where you’ll find everything from the best shops to metropolitan entertainment.
The rooms at the Dolder Grand Hotel are spacious, decorated with the finest materials and opulent furniture in a contemporary design, featuring the highest standard of modern day technology (for example every room offers free wireless internet access, as well as clever Bang & Olufsen entertainment units which allow you to control almost all of the room’s luxuries with the touch of a universal remote).
After soaking up the view from your private terrace, the hotel has an award winning Spa which stretches on forever. The spa includes countless pampering extravagances which will rejuvenate you from head to toe.
The Spa was designed by the internationally renowned wellness specialist Ms. Sylvia Sepielli and is open to indulge you 7 days a week from 7am to 10pm. In September 2008, it received the Tatler Award for “the smartest escape”. A temple of relaxation, where only the best is good enough, with all the amenities and delights that anyone, even the most demanding client, could ask for.
Culinary excitement is provided by the German cook Heiko Nieder who will serve you up some miraculous treats for your taste buds in “The Restaurant”, which has been awarded a Michelin star, as well as 17 Gault Millau points.
The quality service and attention to detail in this newly re-opened resort is nothing short of excellent and it makes for the perfect weekend getaway, to clear your head and to soak up the finest, luxurious pleasures. In April, the Dolder Grand was on the 2009 hotlist of Condé Nast Travelor (UK) as one of the world’s best new hotels.
Each of the Dolder Grand’s four luxury Top Suites is an expression of individual extravagance. Harmonious interior designs, each different from the other, create an exclusive ambience in all four suites.
