While the Saanenland glitters under a fresh blanket of snow, Gstaad Palace makes just as fresh and elegant of an appearance with the unveiling of five new Classic Suites on all five floors this winter season. The owners, the Scherz family, used roughly two million for the conversion. Gstaad Palace gives high priority to continuous modernization and investments, with additional renovation work already in sight for summer 2018.
“Guests demand more space nowadays and appreciate hotel rooms where there’s plenty of room for privacy and socializing. We are meeting this demand by constantly giving our hotel the desired form,” explains Andrea Scherz, the third generation of owners and General Manager. The committed hotelier has invested roughly two million dollars in the modern room layout on all five floors of his hotel.
The well-known English interior architect Marina Nickels is responsible for the Classic Suites’ design. Inspiration for the designer’s color pallet was taken from the hotel itself, pulling design elements from historical materials and textures within the Palace’s more than 100-year history. The state-of-the-art rooms are developed hand in hand with the owner Andrea Scherz, who is responsible for trend scouting and the rooms’ technical equipment.
Gstaad Palace’s Classic Suites offer guests a taste of the English countryside style, interspersed with elements of classic Alpine chic. The new suites at the Palace offer a little over 700 sq ft of space. The large king size bed stands in the center of the bedroom, in classic box spring quality fitted with first-class, handmade mattresses from ELITE (in Aubonne). The suite also has a separate living room, large walk-in wardrobe and spacious bathroom with additional bath and shower. Adjoining the living room is a comfortable seating area for lunch or dinner, a sofa, bar and an extra bathroom with shower. From the spacious balcony the view extends from the Wildhorn over the imposing Diablerets group to the gentle Eggli.
