Guests staying looking to indulge themselves during their Alpine break could do worse than check out the Gstaad Palace this Spring. The Swiss Alps’ landmark hotel, already known for its fabulous luxury and its eco-friendly progressiveness, has just introduced an exclusive new treat for its guests – a therapeutic spa and massage program featuring 100% organic skincare from Jardin des Monts.
Designed exclusively for the Gstaad Palace Spa, the new Jardin des Monts range provides locally-sourced therapeutic skincare to protect guests from the harsh effects of the dry air and brilliant sunshine that characterizes the Swiss mountain climate.
With its own Alpine garden set in the Bernese Oberland, not far from the Gstaad Palace, Jardin des Monts has been successfully tending its enriching organic ingredients for more than 150 years. Accessible only on foot, the blooming Jardin des Monts garden nurtures more than 30 plants and herbs known for their therapeutic healing and anti-aging properties, including lemon balm, lemon thyme, echinacea, Moroccan mint, lavender, edelweiss and bergamot to name just a few. All herbs and plants are cultivated, processed and prepared into skincare ingredients by hand, with no added preservatives.
The Gstaad Palace Spa is now offering two unique organic spa treatments exclusively for its guests:
The Relaxing Jardins des Monts Mountain Feeling Massage is a blissful, aromatic massage experience that will leave guests feeling as if they are on top of the highest mountain in the Alps. Warm eye pads laced with the petals of regional flowers literally bloom during the experience, while relaxing music and a special Jardin des Months herbal tea add to the soothing feeling.
The Energetic Jardin des Monts Mountain Feeling Massage is designed to leave guests feeling energized, combining the Jardin des Monts skincare range with the reinvigorating properties of natural beech wood. Guests can relax to music inspired by nature whilst enjoying a special Jardin des Monts herbal tea.
The Palace Spa at the Gstaad Palace offers a truly authentic Swiss spa experience, featuring a private spa suite, relaxation area and eight individual treatment rooms, set amidst a breathtaking landscape of mountain vistas. After treatment, guests can relax and enjoy with a choice of steam bath, sauna and pool, or else step outside and radiate in the warmth of the Jacuzzi or heated pool.
