Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has celebrated the opening of Mandarin Oriental Palace, Luzern, the city’s iconic Belle Epoque landmark that has undergone an extensive and elaborate renovation.

Attending the official opening event was Grammy award-winning mezzo-soprano, Cecilia Bartoli – a long term Mandarin Oriental fan, who was joined by hotel general manager, Christian Wildhaber, His Excellency Chinese Ambassador Shi Ting Wang, Lijun Yu, Director Hans Holding (owning company), Fanziska Bitzi, Lucerne City Councillor, and other senior members of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group to pronounce the hotel officially open.

The hotel has undergone an extensive and elaborate renovation, overseen by local architects Iwan Bühler Architekten and London-based interior designers Jestico + Whiles, who have preserved the building’s rich history and heritage while delivering a contemporary design inspired by the beauty of the surrounding Swiss landscapes.

Dramatically positioned overlooking the shores of Lake Lucerne, the hotel is a stone’s throw from the charming old town and with spectacular views over the Swiss Alps.

Set to usher in an era of contemporary elegance and legendary service, the hotel is poised to become Lucerne’s most exclusive venue.

The property features 136 elegant and spacious guestrooms including 48 of the city’s largest suites, four restaurants and bars under the patronage of Michelin star experienced Executive Chef Gilad Peled, a serene and rejuvenating spa, and elegantly appointed event spaces.

To celebrate the opening, the hotel has created two opening offers to entice guests to be amongst the first to experience the spectacular restoration of this historic palace. Starting at CHF 700 per night, offers include guaranteed lake vistas from elegantly renovated rooms or the city’s largest suites as well as a rich daily breakfast for two, a CHF 100 (CHF 150 for suites) dining credit, and distinctive destination experiences.

Offers are bookable from now and are subject to availability.
