This post is in collaboration with The Waldhotel Health & Medical Excellence and Bürgenstock Hotels & Resort Lake Lucerne.
There’s nothing quite like a getaway with your best friend, loved one or family member so when the Waldhotel at Bürgenstock Resort emailed to ask if I would like to experience four days with them I just knew it was the perfect excuse to see my sister. I’ve often wished that I too had made the move to Switzerland, everything runs on time, everyone is beautiful and it just has this clean, healthy aura, I leave knowing my lungs and skin are cleaner.
The Waldhotel at Bürgenstock Resort is located by Lake Lucerne and was reopened in August 2017 after a half a billion pound investment and oh my goodness you can feel the luxury as soon as you arrive! With not one but four hotels, eight restaurants, lounges and bars, a state of the art Health and Medical Centre and a 10,000m2 Alpine Spa, there are enough leisure activities to make you want to move in!
It couldn’t be easier to get to the Bürgenstock Resort, a quick plane and train ride followed by the most beautiful high-speed Catamaran Boat and then the incredible Funicular which takes you from the lake up to the mountains where you will find the hotel. I’m not going to lie Becky and I practically lived in our white fluffy robes during our stay, only stopping to change out of them for dinner at one of the restaurants or to go naked in the spa, which trust me is how the Swiss do it and boy does it make you feel free!
You can be as healthy as you want to be during your stay, work out in the breathtaking gyms, swim in the pools, go hiking in the hills around you, borrow a bike, book yourself in for one of the many types of fitness class or enjoy a PT session with the very motivating Mike and the team are more than happy to organise a pregnancy-suitable program.
But this hotel is like no other, it offers extraordinary levels of care, focusing on the specific needs of the guests and patients who decide to visit and stay, it has amazing packages based on five key topics: Diagnostic & Medical Check-up, Mobility & Activity, Weight Management & Metabolism, Body & Mind Balance and Beauty & Healthy Ageing. Obviously at the time of visit i was 18 weeks pregnant so only went to learn about these packages, however, post-pregnancy I might see if I can pop back and learn about weight management, metabolism and mobility!
If you’re looking for a beautiful getaway, a chance to clear your head and clean your body then look no further. You’ll come back relaxed, rejuvenated and re-educated in nutrition and fitness! I’ve popped a fact box below with all the key information but in the meantime, would you like me to host a Retreat in Switzerland? Let me know in the comments below!
