    Hotel description

    Located in the breathtaking Bernese Oberland, the renowned Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel and Spa exudes class and distinction. Opened in 1865, this luxury hotel enjoys spectacular views of the impressive Jungfrau mountain range and is surrounded by a colourful tapestry of valleys and sparkling lakes. The hotel has attracted a privileged and discerning clientele from countries worldwide since the late 19th Century, including prominent academics, artists and royalty. Steeped in the historic charm of La Belle Epoque, it is easy to see why this internationally-acclaimed hotel has played a pivotal role in the evolution of travel and tourism in Switzerland.

    The ambience of the ESPA Centre, located within the Victoria-Jungfrau Spa, is stylish and contemporary, uniting clean Eastern minimalism with a warm earth-toned palette of colour. The reception area with its glass surfaces and ebony furnishings is a balance of light and dark contrasts, mirroring the yin and yang concept central to Eastern medical thought, while treatment rooms are inviting and excite the senses with subtle lighting and soothing décor. There is an attractive Spa Bar which offers guests the refreshing option of dining within the tranquillity of the Spa area, serving an array of appetising light meals, beneficial juices and teas.

    Fine dining in distinguished surroundings is central to the hotel’s enduring appeal. In La Terrasse, guests can unwind to the relaxing accompaniment of the resident pianist, lit by the delicate brilliance of chandeliers and candelabra. The Jungfrau Brasserie serves national specialties which are complemented by a selection of fine Swiss wines, while La Pastateca takes its inspiration from contemporary Italian cuisine, offering a delicious array of antipasti, salads and pasta dishes in a sociable, stylish setting.

    Luxury and choice take priority in the design of the guestrooms, with a total of 212 individually decorated rooms and suites available. The magnificent Tower Suite occupies the highest point in the hotel; located in the dome on the roof with an opulent black, white and gold colour scheme, its north-facing roof terrace and south-facing balcony offer panoramic views from a spectacular vantage point. The spacious Junior Suites feature beautiful wooden floors, marble bathrooms, and refined décor. All rooms enjoy captivating views of the mountain scenery and ensure that guests can enjoy maximum benefit from the inspiring location occupied by this magnificent Spa hotel.

    The resort of Interlaken has a year-round appeal, offering a rich variety of sports in both summer and winter, and is an excellent base from which to explore the cultural magnificence of the region. Shopping in Bern and Luzern is both memorable and enjoyable in the numerous boutiques and traditional craft shops.

    The Victoria-Jungfrau Spa
    Internationally-acclaimed as a leading health and beauty centre, the Victoria-Jungfrau Spa is elegant and serene, promising relaxation and enhanced wellbeing. At the heart of the Spa lies the impressive swimming pool with its marble pillars and vaulted ceiling reminiscent of an ancient Roman bath. Additional features include indoor and outdoor whirlpools, steam room, sauna and relaxation areas.

    The facility is enhanced by the ESPA Centre. An extensive menu of Western practices such as Hydrotherapy and oriental therapies, including a range inspired by the principals of Ayurveda, are personalised to your individual needs. The ESPA philosophy takes a holistic view of wellbeing through which guests can experience total relaxation and restoration of equilibrium within both mind and body. There are 16 state-of-the-art treatment rooms, a private spa suite for two and the Spa Bar.

    Within the spa complex there is also the Sensai Select Spa, a haven of Japanese healing and beauty traditions offering the luxurious infusion of Koishimaru silk. Uniting the hidden power of silk and the Japanese hot spring into spa treatments, the Sensai Spa promises ultimate beauty and a reinvigorated spirit.

    Signature Treatments
    ESPA Purva Karma Four-Hand Massage
    Pure luxury. This treatment – requiring careful preparation – involves a foot ritual, full body exfoliation and gentle facial cleansing, followed by a soothing massage by two therapists, working simultaneously in synchronized harmony with warm natural oils and hot stones. The ultimate experience in relaxation, the relieving of tension and the restoration of inner balance.

    Sensai Indulgence in Silk
    This Sensai signature treatment abides by the exclusive Chrono-aesthetics method, a precise science that synchronises treatments with the body’s natural cycles for optimal results. The treatment incorporates a luxurious infusion of Koishimaru Silk, a precious variety from Japan known as the ‘silk of silks’. A gentle body polish prepares the skin for a healing soak in a private silk bath, followed by a personalised body and facial treatment to enable the skin to reach its full beauty potential.

    Swiss Alpine Herb Poultice Massage
    This exclusive treatment commences with a foot ritual, refreshing herb tea and soothing scalp massage, followed by a full body compress massage. The compress comprises warm herbal balls made from wild Alpine thyme, peppermint, nettles and mallow. A special massage technique is applied to ensure a sense of deep relaxation.

    Private Spa Diamond Ritual for Two
