Based on the long-respected belief of convalescing in scenic surroundings, the 5 star Waldhotel Health & Medical Excellence at Bürgenstock Resort is located in an area of natural beauty, enjoying fresh alpine air and views over Lake Lucerne.
Built into the landscape and designed to be gradually enveloped in the surrounding greenery, it embraces the concept of forest living while utilising the most modern approaches for holistic physical and mental well-being.
The Waldhotel is a revolutionary medical wellness centre offering physical and mental well-being through a ‘Healthy by Nature’ concept and state-of-the-art infrastructure. It features an elite team of multidisciplinary physicians, ranging from cardiology, internal medicine, dermatology, orthopaedics, psychosomatics, dentists to nutrition and gastroenterology, all with a depth of expertise to treat and prevent health concerns using treatments at the highest level. Guests are able to choose an exclusive and tailored Waldhotel Health Package based on five key topics: Diagnostic & Medical Check-up, Mobility & Activity, Weight Management & Metabolism, Body & Mind Balance and Beauty & Healthy Ageing.
Health conscious dishes are available at the Verbena restaurant (awarded 14 GaultMillau points) with its unique Waldhotel Colour Cuisine, using local and organic produce wherever possible to achieve farm to table cuisine. The Waldhotel Colour Cuisine supports the hotel’s health-preventive programs such as Detox or Weight Management. Guests may put into practice these dietary guidelines through sessions in the cooking lab.
To further its reputation as a destination for healthy living, the Verbena Bar is the first “dry” bar in Switzerland, instead offering exclusively non-alcoholic cocktails and beverage creations such as shrubs or kombuchas. The bartender uses exciting and extraordinary ingredients and experiments with different techniques, distillation and fermentation methods.
Each of the Waldhotel’s 137 terrace rooms and suites boast magnificent south-facing views of the Alps. During their stay, guests may take time to relax in the well-appointed Waldhotel Spa, with its breath-taking view of the Alps or enjoy a forest bathing session.
"With the Waldhotel, our guests have access to a health-friendly retreat with the convenience of a 5-star hotel, where an experienced, multidisciplinary team of doctors works closely with the specialists at the Medical Spa, the nutrition expert and chef Martin Stein," says Robert P. Herr General Manager of Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne. The Waldhotel offers a superior health and wellness experience for the most discerning guests.
