Spa Pointer Interview with Ulrike Muthen, Spa Manager of Palace Spa:
Philosophy/Architecture/Team of the SPA
The Gstaad Palace and the Palace SPA are very special. Each stone of the Hotel could tell a long and compelling story. The Hotel has seen very sad and difficult times, but also glamorous and heart-warming events.
The Palace with its SPA is located at one of the most beautiful spots on earth – at least the locasl say so. When god created this region called „Saanenland“, he took a hand full of the best, most beautiful and valuable and opened this hand over the Saanenland. This is no naked, cold and frightening high mountainous region, but a cosy, warm and sympathetic mountain area with love to details.
This is what Familiy Scherz, the owner family, filled with life, people and history. This authenticity for tradition and closeness to natur is also reflected in the SPA. Regional stones from the nearby lake „Blausee“ have been used to decorate the SPA and regional artists designed art for the SPA with materials of farmers.This is why the SPA has a plain elegant atmosphere with a human touch.
Mister Scherz himself has done research in his hometown Gstaad for local bathing and wellness tradition, which then influenced the design of the SPA in 2007. The Palace is cinvincing through special details, and not gigantism.
Our guests wills find competent people here who will make you forget your everyday life. The SPA is an island and close to heaven, how a regular guest used to say. The Palace not only has a rare family tradition, but also a staff tradition. Many of our collegues continue working here since decades and keep their loyalty to our hotel and its guests. There is something special about this hotel, what you can not describe, but what you definitely will feel, when you are here as a guest.
Escape, for example, for 2 hours with our „ Hammam Experience“. The traditional idea of a Hammam will be performed with perfection. You will pass 7 different rooms, where all your senses will be addressed and no space left for your daily concerns. In the „dark room“ you will have a foot bath in the beginning for cleaing purposes, followed then by relaxing moments in the „white room“ or „endless room“. Then you will experience a traditional soap foam massage, which will be completed by visiting a steam bath. Then your journey leads you into the „floating pool“ to refresh and relax. Finally a moisturizing oil massage will be the highlight of your journey. In one word, it is a dream, just heavenly!
The Palace SPA only exists in Gstaad and in the Palace, because only here you can find the perfect mixture of facilities, technical know-how, natural resources and human touch. And my personal opinion, as someone who comes from Germany, is that I like it to be stopped and get the chance to bethink. This is something really rare today. The Palace Spa is a dream which has come true!
