Following an extensive multi-million pound refurbishment, Grand Hotel Quellenhof in Switzerland has reopened with an incredible new look that combines luxe heritage with contemporary hedonism
There’s yet another reason to visit the idyllic scenery of Switzerland this summer.
Following an extensive refurbishment, Grand Resort Bad Ragaz has announced the exquisite re-opening of Grand Hotel Quellenhof.
Whilst carefully maintaining the property’s luxe heritage, the five-star hotel has proudly entered a new era following the 35 million pound project.
Speaking of the changes, Patrick Vogler, CEO of Grand Resort Bad Ragaz, told The Wordrobe: “We had a vision to bring our hotel into a new era of luxury hospitality, and we have succeeded.”
Now, foodies can enjoy exciting new innovative restaurants and bars, ultra-luxurious accommodation and plenty of head-turning interior design.
Fresh Fine Dining: New Restaurants & Bars
Explore two new restaurants – Memories and verve by sven. – both headed up by award-winning and previously Michelin-star chef Sven Wassmer.
The chef’s signature and fine-dining restaurant, Memories, celebrates contemporary Alpine cuisine.
The menu takes inspiration from the forests, mountains and fields of the Swiss Alps.
Notably, Memories will also offer non-alcoholic pairing menus. Tapping into the rising trend of health-conscious dining and drinking, it’ll be one of a handful of restaurants to offer such an experience.
Meanwhile, verve by sven offers guests a vibrant and healthy pitstop for those wanting to maintain their wellness journey during mealtimes. Devour special menus filled with nutritious, sustainable dishes.
These restaurants are an exciting addition to Grand Resort Bad Ragaz’s already impressive F&B outlets.
As well as the new eateries, guests can try everything from Michelin-star dining at IGNIV and Swiss fare at Zollstube to Asian fusion at Namun.
Decadent Interior Design
The ground floor of Grand Hotel Quellenhof is the heart of the hotel. verve by sven compliments this by blending harmoniously into the property’s public areas with an impressive destination bar and sleek glass wine cellar.
Guests can also come together around the open fireplace (illuminated by hundreds of beautiful Swarovski crystals for a striking finish).
The new interior design is courtesy of renowned Claudio Carbone. Carbone has centred the redesign around the hotel’s connection to the town’s thermal waters which were discovered in Bad Ragaz’s Tamina Gorge 777 years ago.
Discover a trio of three thermal water fountains, which offer a continuous flow of fresh thermal water for guests to enjoy and consume at will.
The largest and perhaps most impressive homage to the thermal waters is the 16-metre-high chandelier which hangs in the lobby’s grand staircase and presides over all four floors.
Each glass fragment of the 2,5000-piece chandelier has been handmade by Czech glassblowers and is reminiscent of a flowing waterfall.
Ultimate Exclusivity: All-New King Suite
Those wanting to enjoy ultimate exclusivity can now book the new King Suite.
An oasis in Grand Hotel Quellenhof, the room boasts features such as walnut and marble flooring, hand-blown crystal chandeliers and furniture designed and crafted exclusively for the suite.
With a private fitness and spa area the King Suite offers unparalleled privacy – you’ll enjoy your very own Swiss paradise.
Guests wanting to go all out can extend the King Suite into the King Floor, transforming the space into a 600 square metre, seven-bedroom hideaway – luxury at the highest level.
