One of the oldest palace hotels in Gstaad, Le Grand Bellevue, Gstaad re-opened under new ownership in December 2013 to introduce a funky, 57 room hotel with a bold color scheme, eye-catching prints and elegant furniture. They’ve got a superb Michelin-starred restaurant, an intimate 18-seater chalet restaurant in the hotel’s grounds and a decadent nightclub, bouquet. Well known for skiing in the winter, each summer sees the mountain town transformed into a wellness mecca, offering soaring views of alpine hiking, outdoor yoga, and spa treatments.

With 57 elegant rooms, of which nine are sophisticated suites, Le Grand Bellevue offers unrivaled accommodation. Heralding a new era of Gstaad chic, these rooms promise panoramic views of the mountains or private parklands, plus light-flooded bathrooms stocked with Bamford bath products. Most rooms have balconies, too.

Bedrooms include spacious and pampering Chic and Deluxe Chic Rooms, but for the ultimate in luxury lodgings, there are the nine sensational suites. The penthouse, Le Grand Bellevue Suite is the largest in the hotel, with more than 170sqm of living space.


LEONARD’s may have a Michelin star and offer world-class dining, but Le Grand Bellevue’s fashionable flagship restaurant still maintains a wonderfully laid-back atmosphere. For something more intimate and unmistakable Swiss, Le Petit Chalet is a charming tree-flanked wooden cottage on the Promenade. There’s nowhere more charming for classic local specialties such as raclette or fondue.

Le Grand Bellevue Bar is a convivial space that’s as quirky as it is cool. Relax on the longest leather Chesterfield sofa in Switzerland, and enjoy an expertly mixed cocktail fixed at the central zinc-topped bar. Whether you’re after après-ski spirit or have your own special occasion to celebrate, there’s always the bouquet. For a refined experience, our first-class afternoon tea is served daily in the Lounge. Or, head outside and feel the sun on your face in our Garden Lounge, at the edge of our groomed grounds.
