It was up here at the Bürgenstock resort that Charlie Chaplin once hung out, Audery Hepburn got married, Sofia Loren lived for almost a decade and where the James Bond crew stayed during the shooting of Goldfinger. The site has undergone major redevelopment over the past few years and is now re-opening piece by piece. The Bürgenstock Alpine Spa recreates that sense of luxury, surrounded by peaceful nature and views of the Alps. The décor is modern and sleek using wood, stone, water and light to create a relaxed, calming atmosphere. It covers an area of 10,000m2 and offers three pools, an extensive sauna landscape and a fitness area. One of the highlights is the 35°C outdoor infinity pool overlooking Lake Lucerne. In addition to the spa, the resort features 12 restaurants, bars and lounges and four hotels, tennis courts, a cinema and an ice rink. Although many of the facilities are up and running, the grand opening is planned for the spring of 2018.
