The lakeside hotel is housed in the historic Palace Luzern, dating back to 1906
Mandarin Oriental Palace, Luzern has officially opened its doors.
Overlooking both the Alps and Lake Lucerne, local architects Iwan Bühler Architekten and London-based interior designers Jestico + Whiles were tasked with transforming the building, which dates back to 1906, into a modern hotel.
The hotel features 136 guest rooms and suites, most of which have private balconies and all offer luxe amenities including Diptyque toiletries, Dyson hair products and Bose sound systems.
The largest of the 48 suites is the 1,432-square-foot Presidential Suite decorated with sculptures, mirrors, hand-painted murals, hand-blown glass art d'objet and locally made mosaic inlays.
The hotel's food and beverage programme, run by chef Gilad Peled, includes Mozern Bar & Brasserie offering classic Asian dishes, afternoon tea and cocktails; al fresco Italian dining at Quai 10, and Colonnade focused on French cuisine. A six-seat Japanese restaurant will open in 2023.
Onsite facilities also include the hotel's Spa Bellefontaine, which combines revitalising Asian rituals with Bellefontaine beauty products.
