THE DOLDER GRAND
The Dolder Grand - Zurich, Switzerland
Burrowed into the Adlisbergwald, where its turrets appear to spear the sky, the Dolder Grand sits amid riotous woodland above Zurich. Lake Zurich can be seen sparkling below, while mountains serrate the horizon. Majestic turrets make this multi-award-winning Belle Époque resort a Zurich landmark. Gallery-quality artworks, a 4,000-square-metre spa and a Michelin-starred restaurant.
The 175 rooms are as tranquil as the location. A neutral palette with splashes of lilac or tonal oranges composes a harmonious scene set with low-slung furniture in natural textures like leather, dark oak and linen. We were blessed to spend our stay in a Junior Suite overlooking the golf course with the lake.
SERVICES AND FACILITES
The welcome is excellent: a friendly concierge greets guests – and expertly remembers names for goodbyes. As a self-branded city resort, the Dolder has an award-winning spa, golf course, tennis courts and ice rink in the winter, as well as a grand ballroom and meeting spaces. The hotel also has mountain bikes for complimentary hire.
SPA & FITNESS
Dolder Spa is a seductive space imbued with monastic quietness. The centrepoint is the elliptical 25-metre indoor pool, while outside there are sun loungers, a hot whirlpool with a view of the lake. Other spa facilities include gender-specific saunas and steam rooms, relaxation areas, a snow room and a well-equipped gym.
FOOD & DRINKS
The Saltz restaurant, designed by artist Rolf Sachs, exudes a unique atmosphere of relaxed familiarity combined with an air of understated opulence. It is a place in which guests can question their preconceptions and see things from a completely new perspective. Our Chef à la carte Julian Mai has created a menu of uncomplicated sophistication.
