Le Montreux Palace is worldwide know for hosting all the VIP of the Montreux Jazz Festival every year. A couple of months ago I published about the great romantic weekend we spent there, however I wanted to make a little emphasis in the hotel itself. You know I consider myself a #hoteljunkie and I keep repeating myself (and other around me) that I could actually live in a hotel, so why not explore this Riviera Landmark with me.
We stayed here to celebrate our 2nd anniversary, and we wanted to make it EXTRA special by leveraging the fact that we are in Switzerland! We thought of many options, but Fairmont Le Montreux Palace seemed like the perfect escape within 2 hour range from Geneva, but beautiful enough to change our minds and plunge ourselves into Romantic getaway.
We stayed in room 515! We were welcomed by a beautiful surprise (that I let you discover below) in order to welcome us into our escapade! After we made a Hotel Tour, we visited most of the hotel, the Quincy Jones Suite, the wide hallways (made in the early 1900’s so that 2 women with huge dresses could cross each other) the ball room, the MP’s Bar & Grill & the Spa (only from outside, we went back on Sunday!!)
The Montreux Palace in 6 points:
- Category: 5 Star hotel, Fairmont Family, part of Swiss Deluxe hotels & Leading Hotels of the World
- Rooms & Suites: 236 including the Quincy Jones Suite suite! We stayed in room 515 with an amazing view, the renovated rooms have a decor that is the perfect balance between modern and classic elegance.
- Venues: 4 including the MPs Bar & Grill, Montreux Jazz Café, La Terrase du Petit Palais, Funky Claude’s Bar. They also offer the most amazing Brunch ever.
- Spa: Yes, and it is amazing! Willow Stream Spa.
- Atmosphere: Family friendly,
- LivinGeneva’s Tips : If you are already coming here, splurge on a lake view room it is 285% WORTH IT! You need to try the Brunch!
I think that my favorite part of the hotel was definitely THE BRUNCH, I had never seen anything like this in my entire life! In my other post I shared about this, but now I can even add some pictures the Chef himself sent me!
The great thing about this Brunch is that they have childcare if you need, so in case you have children; you can have an adult’s brunch while sipping white wine with friends and the kids are safe and silent in another room and well kept by the nannies… a dream Sunday right?
I cannot hide the fact that the venues are unique and decorated with a exquisite taste and elegance. My favorite was of couse…. The MP’s Bar & Grill, with their TDF green livingroom ( you know how much I ♥ green). We had the brunch there!
Note to self: Come back for a dinner or lunch 😉
The Funky Claude’s Bar has such a jazzy-lets-talk-all-night-around-a-cocktail ambiance that is fascinating. We ordered each a cocktail and were so surprised about the high bartender skills and tecniques they have! Bravo Guys!!!
Last, but not least the Willow Stream Spa that is so big you can move in without any issue! We were there for a full morning of Swimming, Hammam & Jacuzzi! Simply mega relaxing, during Summer you can tan in the exterior pool & chill in the sun!
In general I recommend this gorgeous property as a weekend escapade from Geneva and also as a longterm vacation if you are coming from far. With kids it must be a dream, with the lake, the gardens and the view….. there is always something to do. And do not forget it is super close to the first ski slopes at The Valais if you want to organize a city/ski weekend.
For the Montreux Jazz… well there is no other option than to stay here, what else?
I hope you enjoyed this Hotel Report, you have no idea how much I love hotels, service, hospitality, restaurants, and everything that surrounds them…It makes me go back to when I was studying and I was so passionate about 5 Star Hotel Service to perfection and Mise-en-place before dinner.
