Hello readers !
Are you ready for a new Hotel Report ?? This time I am taking you with me to the Lausanne Palace & Spa ! A marvelous hotel located in the Center of Lausanne (30 min train from Geneva).
It seems like I have a weakness for Swiss Deluxe Hotels… You can see more of my adventures in this article.
We went there for 2 reasons, for a friend’s graduation & to run The Color Run in Lausanne! Since it is very close we did not stayed there the whole weekend, but only went there for a night.
We were super lucky to be upgraded from our standard room to a lake view room! We stayed in Room 404 . This was magical and made our stay 10X better! Not only we were able to enjoy a magical sunset, but also fill ourselves of infinite views of the Leman Lake.
Did you know that Gabrielle Chanel stayed in this hotel?! Fantastic I know!! Therefore, they named their most beautiful suite under her name. What seems the correct thing to do right?
We visited the suite, just to dream about the times were the most elegant woman on history stayed there and enjoyed the view!
Restaurants & Venues.
The Lausanne Palace hosts 4 restaurants with all of them a different style. All of them recognised both by visitors and locals in Lausanne.
La Table d’Edgard.La Table d’Edgard is the Palace’s «Creative Laboratory». A Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, which follows the waltz of seasons and the golden rules of dietary balance. Be it with short cooking methods or time-consuming stews, the inventiveness of the Chef and his team expresses itself in a refined and light manner: organic, cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil replace cream and butter sauces which honours the organically grown meat and seafood prepared to perfection. An exclusive pleasure crowned by a unique view of Lake Geneva and the Alps, as well as a beautiful terrace for long summer nights.
La Table d’Edgard awarded 1 Michelin star and 18 Gault Millau points.
The Brasserie Grand Chêne.
The only typical Parisian Brasserie in Lausanne, the Grand-Chêne immerses guests in the atmosphere of
the 1930s. With popular traditional dishes such as the Alsatian Sauerkraut, the Café de Paris entrecôte, mussels and fries, rich stews or Shellfish platters. The Brasserie du Grand-Chêne welcomes guests every day of the week in a setting eminiscent of the bustling and buoyant Parisian life: green leather wall seats, copper ornaments and tags of celebrities who are restaurant regulars.
The Côté Jardin.
Le Côté Jardin was awarded 14 points Gault Millau. The restaurant where Breakfast is served every morning and also offers a variety of dishes for lunch and dinner!
Palace Sushi Zen
Sushi Zen offers all the specialities of the traditional Japanese cuisine revisited. Authentic sushi comes together with refined French dishes offering a unique gastronomic experience.
Not only the Palace has 4 restaurants, it also has 3 bars! It is actually like a small city inside Lausanne. You could stay there one week and not be bored by the Food & Beverage options only within the hotel 😉
Known as the best Spa in the city (and definitely the largest) the Spa is an oasis of calm and peace. We went there just before dinner to relax a little bit and pretend to swim to cross out our daily activity (it did not really worked lol, I was only floating around… and relaxing).
