Royal Savoy Hotel & Spa Lausanne
Lausanne was named ‘Best Small City in the World’ for its cultured lifestyle, global outlook and beautiful natural setting. Guests of the Royal Savoy Hotel & Spa are immersed in the charms of this cosmopolitan destination on the shores of Lake Geneva.
Beyond the Royal Savoy’s residential location guests discover a charming city surrounded by natural beauty. Radiant Lake Geneva, locally known as Lac Léman, is framed by majestic views of the Swiss Alps, crowned by Mont Blanc. The Lavaux vineyards that sweep down to the shore promise delicious wine tastings. A gothic Cathedral is at the centre of Lausanne’s old town, a checker of alleyways and charming medieval facades.
Lausanne has a thriving café culture and busy art scene, starting with the Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts and the more radical Collection De L’art Brut. Lausanne is also a sporty city, it is the seat of the International Olympic Committee, while Lake Geneva becomes a glorious summer playground for swimming and sailing.
The Swiss are passionate vintners, yet only two percent of the elite production leaves Switzerland. The UNESCO Lavaux wine region is close to The Royal Savoy, guests can make a leisurely stroll and visit a number of prominent winemakers. Along the lake shores are ‘Pearls of the Swiss Riviera’: Montreux famed for the jazz festival, Vevey and the Château de Chillon.
Built in 1906, the Royal Savoy Hotel & Spa, with its fairy tale turrets, became the palatial refuge for the Spanish royal family and King Bhumibol of Thailand during the Second World War. In 2015 the property was transformed in a lavish renovation to the delight of today’s discerning traveller. Modernist designs highlight this grande dame’s magnificent spaces.
The Royal Savoy Hotel & Spa invites you into Lausanne’s cosmopolitan lifestyle. Surrounded by leafy green gardens guests wake to fresh air and tranquillity. Do brunch in La Brasserie du Royal and lunch on the terrace. Revive with Swiss spa treatments, floating between the pools and hammam. In the evening the Sky Terrace is the most spectacular location in Lausanne for dining with panoramic views of the city, lake and Alps.
