Switzerland's Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne has announced it will be open for bookings starting in September 2017.
The property will include four hotels, an Alpine spa and a medical center in a setting above the shores of Lake Lucerne. Guests will arrive by private boat transfer across the lake, where they will be greeted by a private railway line to take them to the doorstep of The Palace Hotel. Built in 1904 and today blending historic features with new detailing, the hotel has been re-created in a boutique style, with marble pillars, hardwood parquet flooring and hand-blown glass chandlers in a lobby that opens onto an outdoor terrace overlooking the lake. Each of its 108 rooms and suites is designed to offer a contemporary twist on the Alpine setting, with natural stone, wood and leather. All MICE guests have access to the full resort facilities, including the Alpine Spa.
The conference and banqueting areas at Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne will be the largest in central Switzerland. A 2,200 square meter conference center is equipped with the latest technology, and 30 flexible meeting rooms can accommodate up to 900 delegates, with a 500 square meter Lake-view Ballroom for larger events.
The resort is 20 minutes from Lucerne and an hour from Zurich Airport, with direct flights from several UK airports. Private speedboat transfers and an onsite helipad are also available.
