The Dolder Grand

The Dolder Grand is an extraordinary hotel nestled between forests and a golf course, perched on a hill above Lake Zurich. Its majestic presence overlooks the financial center of Switzerland, making it a notable feature when viewed from the lake's shore. The blend of traditional German hunting lodge and modern architect Norman Foster's curvatures beautifully combine into one captivating sight. It's interesting to note that the joining point of the original 1889 building and the 2008 extension is affectionately called "The Kiss."

It's interesting to note that the joining point of the original 1889 building and the 2008 extension is affectionately called "The Kiss."

What sets The Dolder Grand apart is its unique location. While situated about 15 minutes away from the bustling city center of Zurich, the hotel offers privacy and tranquility. Accessibility is not an issue as guests can easily reach the hotel via its own funicular (Dolderbahn), private car, or the hotel's limousine service and antique coach shuttle.

Arriving at The Dolder Grand is an exclusive experience in itself. The driveway features Barry Flanagan's sculpture, Leaping Hare on Curly Bell, while the foyer showcases an impressive bronze statue by French artist Albert Carrier-Belleuse dating back to 1870. The hotel also doubles as an art gallery, offering guided tours with art experts or through the use of an iPad.

The rooms and suites in this luxury hotel are truly marvelous. Each one has been meticulously designed with attention to detail, giving each guest a unique and personalized experience. It's like stepping into a destination within a destination, much like a Russian nesting doll.

The hotel's all-day spa is another highlight, featuring coed facilities as well as separate areas for men and women. Indoor and outdoor pools, including a stunning infinity steam pool, kotatsu foot baths, a nail lounge, a full fitness studio, a hair salon, a spa café, and a quiet room for meditation, provide the ultimate relaxation experience.

Art enthusiasts will be delighted to discover additional masterpieces within the hotel, such as Andy Warhol's Big Retrospective Painting, Salvador Dalí's Femmes métamorphosées – Les sept arts, and Joan Miró's Grand personnage: projet pour un monument.

The 175 rooms in The Dolder Grand reflect traditional Swiss understated luxury. Equipped with modern amenities, these rooms also come with butler and concierge service for long-term stays. Whether in the main original building or the newer modern wings, all rooms exude a contemporary and up-to-date vibe. The Junior Suite Grand category offers breathtaking panoramic views of the city, lake, and mountains through curved floor-to-ceiling windows and a balcony. Top-of-the-line amenities, including Nespresso machines, stereo systems, whirlpool baths, and newspaper service, are available for ultimate comfort.

The hotel boasts two exceptional restaurants. Saltz, an alpine-inspired eatery, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, while The Restaurant offers a sleek fine-dining experience with multi-course meals. The wine cellar is extensive, featuring an excellent selection of bottles from around the world, including Switzerland's finest.

It's worth noting that The Restaurant has specific operating hours, serving lunch from Wednesday to Friday and dinner from Tuesday to Saturday. Chef Heiko Nieder leads the culinary team, presenting a six- or 10-course menu filled with flavorful dishes like Brittany lobster served with melon, tomato, mole, and saffron. Vegetarian options are also available.

In terms of amenities, The Dolder Grand offers a bar, house car service, indoor and outdoor pools, meeting rooms, restaurants, and a spa, ensuring that guests have everything they need for a remarkable stay.

Overall, The Dolder Grand is an exceptional destination that seamlessly blends history, art, luxury, and tranquility. From its picturesque surroundings to its personalized service, it is truly an experience that will leave a lasting impact on every guest.
