Fairmont Le Montreux Palace

Montreux, Switzerland

Forget the Jazz, this is Montreux’ other claim to fame.

Located in a prime position on the “ Swiss Riviera”, the views of the Mont Blanc mountains and the lake justify every cent spent on this decadent Grande Dame. The exterior and common areas are decidedly Belle Epoque and faithful to the hotel that author Nabokov ( who stayed here for years until his death) and Russian Princes loved to call home on their frequent trips to Switzerland. But, once you saunter past the glittering chandeliers, sweeping staircases, stained glass and frescoes and head up to the rooms, it’s a much more contemporary affair. A hot spot for the city’s elite since 1906, dining and drinking in any of the hotel’s bars or restaurants is an event in itself. The Funky Claude’s Bar is the unofficial Montreux Jazz fest, with live music on six nights a week and La Terasse du Petit Palais is one of Geneva’s best spots for alfresco dinners and lakeside views. But the ultimate indulgence however, might just be the Willow Stream Spa, a 2000 sq.m. space of pure rejuvenating bliss complete with a large indoor swimming pool.

    Stunning hotel with a fantastic team of staff which ensured that our stay was perfect in every way.

  • P.M.

    I had been a guest at this hotel once before this trip. I love coming back. There’s been some positive changes at the restaurant and the menu but there’s no gourmet menu yet. The staff is very attentive to your needs and outgoing. There was a good atmosphere at the pool with music bar. The spa was lovely too.

  • B.S.

    It was delightful from beginning to end. I will return very soon to that Hotel. Thank you.

  • P.M.
