Dolder Grand Hotel, Zurich
The famed healthspa/hotelhas been designed in 1899 byJacques Grosand has a perfect city location overlookingLake Zurich andthe Alps. The old hotel has been renewed as a modern luxury hotel by a famous team of professionals — architecture byLondonâ€™s Foster and Partners, interior design byUnited Designers, also of London, and the spa concept by spa-industry visionary, Arizona-basedSylvia Sepielli.
The topmost, 4,300 square-footMaestro Suiteis designed byHerbert von Karajan. The sweeping two-level suite features red leather chairs, dark timbers, a circular tower dining room, pale-marble bathrooms with whirlpools and steam showers (and one with a sauna), massive windows and a lounge-style terrace.
The Swiss surrealist painter andsculptorAlberto Giacometticreated theCarezza Suiteon the top floor of the spa wing. The furnishings and its organic shapes give a peaceful lounge feel, intensified by the neutral colors and the modern fireplace. The two-bedroom suite has a living room, TV lounge and marble bathrooms.
The spa wing, theMasina Suitetakes its inspiration fromGiulietta Masina, actress and wife of Federico Fellini. Night-blue and soft white evoke a feel of elegance and smoky glamour. A large Fendi sofa and a flat-screen TV are perfect for film noir nights. Floor-to-ceiling windows add further drama. Orange sofas, dark wood panels and pink furniture adorn Suite 101 created to reflect the legacy of the Rolling Stones. The decor has a retro vibe and an edge with distinctive, casual luxury. The suite features a bedroom, living room, dining room, an ensuite kitchen and meeting room for 10.
