Can you think of a better way to spend the beginning of the New Year than skiing in one of Switzerland’s most famous ski resorts? We cannot which is why we suggest booking your Swiss Alps ski vacation to Montreux now while you can get great travel discounts and packages for the holiday season.
Montreux, Switzerland is famous throughout the world for the Montreux Jazz Festival each year; however, this breathtaking Swiss Alps ski resort is also world famous for its excellent skiing conditions and as a world-renowned spa resort. Surrounded by breathtaking views of the Swiss Alps, centuries-old castles and crystal clear mountain lakes, Montreux is the perfect resort to spend the mornings skiing, the afternoons relaxing in a health spa and the evenings dining in fine restaurants before partying the night away in one of the many clubs located throughout the village.
While there are many hotels in Montreux that combine luxurious accommodations with excellent spa facilities and fine dining, one of our favorite Montreux hotels that does it better than most is the Grand Hotel Excelsior. Located about two miles from the center of the city, the hotel offers a bit more privacy from the crowds but is still close enough to enjoy the many Montreux attractions that make this Swiss Alps resort popular with tourists. All 58 rooms in the hotel are non-smoking for the well-being of the guests and have excellent views of the mountains and the lake. However, what makes the Grand Hotel Excelsior stand out as one of the best hotels in Montreux are the dining options and the wellness center.
From casual dining to an elegant meal in the main restaurant, guests at Grand Hotel Excelsior are treated to a fantastic culinary experience. Les Magnolias is a gourmet restaurant that combines the freshest local ingredients with authentic, local recipes. Enjoy a lunch by the pool with views of the mountains and the lake or have breakfast brought to your room for a romantic breakfast in bed.
The other highlight of staying in this world-class Montreux hotel is enjoying the wellness center. The Thalgo beauty center offers a wide variety of body and facial treatments including manicures, waxing, massages and even permanent make-up applications. The indoor swimming pool is perfect for relaxing tired limbs after a morning of skiing or an hour in the Thalgo’s workout room. The staff is dedicated to making sure that each guest leaves relaxed, rejuvenated and ready for another exciting day exploring the many Montreux attractions.
