Spa Profile: The Dolder Grand Spa
One of the most exclusive spas in Switzerland, The Dolder Grand Spa has won numerous awards and provides guests with plenty of space to pamper themselves and relax. In addition to a Ladies’ and Gentlemen’ Spa, there is an Aqua Zone with a swimming pool whirlpool terrace, steam bath, mixed sauna area, and more.
The property also has relaxation, chill-out and meditation areas that provide the perfect place for peace, quiet and relaxation. Spa Director, Therese Martirena, gives us a sneak peek into the spa and shares her favorite treatments, spa snacks, and more:
Why You’ll Love It: Our guests love that the spa is surrounded by nature and offers spectacular views of the forest and mountains. Based on this feedback, we are working on incorporating more outdoor programming that would include yoga, fitness classes, and more.
Key Features: The Dolder Grand offers a variety of amenities within its spa, including Spa Suites that feature whirlpools, steam/mud baths, a nail lounge for guests to get manicures and pedicures, a luxurious hair salon, an aqua zone that features an indoor and outdoor pool, snow paradise, a sanarium and plenty of lounge space, separate ladies and gentlemen’s spas with kokatsu foot baths, saunas, aroma pools, a gym, and a spa library and shop.
Spa guests can also take advantage of the wellness amenities, which include treatments in anti-aging/rejuvenation, laser medicine, dermatology and more. Those interested in improving their nutrition habits can even sign up for SWAMI genotype testing, which uses more than 90 personal facts to create the perfect diet for your genotype by determining the right selection and balance of 225 different food components from 800 different foods.
Insider’s Tip: We recently launched a new line of treatments and products with Dr. Burgener, which includes a gift box that guests will have access to. Whether it’s a serum or a cream, these products will provide you with options that you can adjust depending on the day or type of skin you have.
Bonus: Guests who book our Detox Day or Beauty Day packages (460 CHF/$475 USD) receive a surprise special gift and a spa bag, which includes great books on a variety of beauty and wellness topics for them to enjoy during their spa day. Also, a room that most guests may not be aware of is the Chill Out Room, where they can go to relax and enjoy activities like drawing, writing poetry or simply including a quote in our spa book, which is put on display in our spa library once it’s completely filled.
Spa Snacks: The spa features its very own cafe where guests can enjoy light meals, juices and teas as a takeaway or served on the spa terrace. All the nutrition is also set in our live balance themes and you only have food which fits for all the genotypes, which is either positive or neutral to influence your DNA. But non will harm your system, which is most important.
Most Unique Aspect: We are now offering a series of special treatments by Dr. Burgener, including Hydraheaven (260 CHF/$258 USD), which begins with a refreshing foot bath and scrub. It is then followed by a dry scrub for the entire body, which activates circulation and allows for improved absorption during the moisturizing treatment. Afterwards you will enjoy total weightlessness on a waterbed. The experience for all the senses is rounded off with a meridian massage, mini-facial and foot massage.
Splurge Treatment: For those looking for a one-of-a-kind “splurge” treatment, I would definitely recommend the Dr. Burgener Haute Couture analysis and treatment, which provides guests with their own three-month therapy box featuring products that cater to their specific skin issues.
Insider’s Favorite: My favorite spa treatments tends to change depending on my mood, but I really love our new “personalized luxury” Dolder Grand Life Balance packages, which are tailored to help you deal with the stresses of everyday life. One of my favorite treatments is the SWAMI Genotype testing (290 CHF/$300 USD), which uses more than 90 personal facts to create the perfect diet for your genotype by determining the right selection and balance of 225 different food components from 800 different foods.
Featured Products: The Dolder Grand has an exclusive brand partnership with Dr. Burgener Switzerland. This Swiss company is launching a range of professionally designed treatments and products, including facials, body scrubs and wraps, massages and special endermologie treatments called “haute couture” —specially tailored to meet the precise requirements of the Dolder Grand guests.
