Scheduled to open this summer, the reimagined Burgenstock Resort Hotel Lake Lucerne will feature a gargantuan spa covering 10,000sq m (107,639 sq ft).

Situated on the shoulders of the Burgenburg cliff and offering views of Lake Lucerne, the Rigi and Pilatus, the new spa is among the largest and most modern in Europe.

Aiming to introduce leading wellbeing facilities to provide ‘wellness without limits’ to guests, the concept has been driven by hotelier and managing director of Katara Hospitality Switzerland AG, Bruno Schöpfer, who is responsible for some of the world’s greatest spas.

Investment in the project is 550 million Swiss francs ($544m, €516m, £438m). London-based interior designers MKV Design used natural local materials and crafted furniture to create a contemporary, luxury spa experience.

“The unique cliff-top location 450m above Lake Lucerne offers captivating views to soothe the soul,” said Schopfer. “We believe that wellbeing is as much about the mind as the body and this ethos is central to the design of the spa creating a spiritual mountain-top haven. The building itself is one of the original structures found at the Bürgenstock Resort, modelled in the iconic style of Frank Lloyd Wright and at one with the surrounding environment.”

The 3,000sq m (32,291sq ft) outside space includes three pools – one of which is protected as a historical monument – landscaped private gardens, and an infinity-edged outdoor pool with water maintained at a constant 36 °C.

The 7,000sq m (75,347 ft) inside space will feature floor-to-ceiling glass walls providing mountain views over Mount Pilatus. Facilities include a Kneipp bath, private bath chambers, an Arabian razul using local Bürgenstock Rock, Turkish steam, a panoramic sauna and tranquillity room both with log fireplaces, whirlpool baths hidden within a cave and hammam.

Beauty treatments and massages will take place in 15 treatment rooms and three private spas.

Also on site will be a fitness park offering a wide range of courses, including body pump and yoga.

Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne will also incorporate The Waldhotel, an innovative, architecturally striking medical centre with 160 rooms.

As well as a menu of beauty and relaxation treatments, elite physicians will treat and prevent health concerns and provide post-operative convalesce, treatments for burn-out patients and medical check-ups.
