In the wellness hotels, guests relax in record-breaking style
The guiding principle at the Bernese Oberland’s Zen temples is “relaxation”. Built as urban palaces or in idyllic locations by mountain lakes, these recreation centres cast a spell over their visitors.
Those seeking relaxation can easily plan their own wellness programme at the hotels. Athletes jump onto the latest fitness machines and work up a sweat. In the hammam or ice grotto, meanwhile, time seems to stand still. The wellness package is completed by sauna facilities and specialist massages that help restore visitors’ muscles and immune systems. Between the glacier steam bath and the heated mine gallery, guests also enjoy the culinary treats at the Canton of Bern’s countless wellness hotels.
The capital of relaxation
In Gstaad, the wellness facilities line up like a string of pearls. Exclusive 5-star experiences make this place a real centre of relaxation. Visitors can indulge themselves in the salt cave with an impressive mountain view. Other equally popular options include trendy detox cures and timeless beauty treatments that give guests a fresh glow from head to toe.
Spas are fun
From a luxurious villa with indoor and outdoor facilities to a near-natural garden pavilion, the hotels’ spas offer a great deal of variety even in terms of ambiance. Depending on their mood, visitors can just pop into the day spa or visit a private spa for a longer break from everyday stress. The wide-ranging treatments give the body and soul plenty of room to relax. Afterwards, guests can refresh themselves in luxurious pools and Jacuzzis.
