Treat Yourselves With A Visit At Fairmont Le Montreux Palace
Nestled on the eastern shoes of Lake Geneva, in Switzerland’s beautiful Riviera-Pays-d’Enhaut region, Montreux is one of the most famous resort towns in the Swiss Alps, a magical place that even inspired Deep Purple’s iconic song ‘Smoke On the Water‘.
Of course, apart from that, this charming little town has many other things to offer, like the breathtaking views of the mountains and Lake Geneva, hiking or skiing on Dent de Jaman, or checking out the superb Chillon castle – and the starting point is probably this palatial lakeside resort, that’s ready to mesmerize every single one of us.
Fairmont Le Montreux Palace is the place where Belle-Époque elegance blends in with first-class hospitality to result in one of the most seductive ambiances around. Checking out Lake Geneva or the Alps from your own balcony is probably the best way to start the day here, with the fairy-tale continuing inside where burgundy fabrics, antique furniture, and crystal chandeliers overwhelm guests with an incredible sense of royalty.
Although completed more than 100 years ago, this luxurious hotel is well worthy of our attention, with 235-rooms and suites featuring high-end decorations and incredible amenities. Fairmont Le Montreux Palace also benefits from frescoes and elaborate glass-work, complementing the nine meeting rooms and the resort’s wonderful Salon de Bridge.
The latter shows off a Russian landscape covering the walls, and if you think this is too much, wait until you arrive at La Brasserie du Palace or at Harry’s New York Bar. Your night could end with a unique dining experience, complemented by your favorite drinks, that would make you want to return here again and again.
If all else fails, the resort’s impressive Willow Stream Spa will surely get you in a relaxing, almost Zen-like mood. Ready to check out Montreux?
