    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    The Grand Hotel Quellenhof enjoys a privileged location in the foothills of the Swiss Alps, and as such benefits from a favourable sunny climate in summer, and snowfall in winter which makes Bad Ragaz an excellent destination for winter sports.The hotel was built in 1869 in the grand style which typifies late 19th Century central European architecture, and although the original structure has been completely rebuilt, a sensitive and carefully executed approach has ensured that none of the original appeal and sophistication has been lost. The spacious guestrooms of The Grand Hotel Quellenhof are tastefully furnished and offer panoramic views of the Alpine landscape. Suites are bright and bathed in natural sunlight which is accentuated by the pastel yellow hue of the walls, and the rich blue carpets intensify the luxurious ambience. The plush Royal Suite features a stunning parquet mosaic floor, grand piano and beautiful fireplace which complement the classic columns and alcoves in the living area, while a luxurious thermal water whirlpool bath allows guests to experience the therapeutic powers of the Bad Ragaz springs in the privacy of their own suite. The elegant Restaurant Bel-Air has been awarded 14 Gault Millau points, and offers international spa cuisine created by Chef Renato Wust, supplemented by attractive Japanese dishes by Tadashi Aoki. The refined decor and magnificent sun terrace for al fresco dining completes the profile of this superior establishment. The gourmet restaurant Aebestube has been awarded 16 Gault Millau points and boasts fine wines and cuisine in a spacious cave-like setting, and the intimate Zollstube restaurant provides the perfect ambience for the delicious regional and Swiss delicacies featured on the extensive menu. The To B. Health Club at the Grand Hotel Quellenhof is dedicated in its entirety to wellbeing and relaxation, based on the healing thermal waters of the Bad Ragaz springs. The magnificent centrepiece of the spa is the Helenabad which exudes classical Roman style with its high ceilings, ornate marble arches, and mosaic-tiled floors. The range of deluxe facilities include sauna, steam baths, aromatherapy cabins, whirlpool baths, Kneipp circuits, and a relaxation room with water bed, in addition to a Garden Pool during summer months.Therapies from all over the world from Oriental to Hawaiian are available, as well as the spa's signature treatments, which combine to offer healing and relaxation for mind and body. Treatment rooms take inspiration from the therapies in their design, exemplified in the Arizona desert theme of the LaStone® treatment cabin, and the minimalist Asia cabin where oriental therapies are performed. This dedicated approach to creating a fitting atmosphere which enhances the benefits of the therapies is similarly echoed in all aspects of design in the Grand Hotel Quellenhof, and is ultimately a key factor in the enduring appeal of this exceptional hotel.

    Original LaStone® Therapy Hot lava stones are laid on the energy centres of the body, which opens these chakra points and promotes relaxation. The body is then massaged with hot stones to stimulate circulation and relieve tension in the muscles.Lomi Lomi Nui Massage This traditional therapy originates from Hawaii where it was used for physical, emotional and spiritual purification. Lomi Lomi Nui is an holistic relaxation method which combines connective tissue massage and joint-loosening with energy work. The therapist uses their lower arms to provide powerful massage strokes, and aromatic essential oils are used to soothe or invigorate as fits the needs of the individual.Vinotherapy A concentrated grape seed oil rich in skin-rejuvenating properties lies at the heart of this effective therapy. To prepare for the treatment the body is cleansed and washed in a jacuzzi. This is followed by an exfoliating treatment using ground grape seeds, and a soothing bath on a soft-pack bed. To complete the therapy a gentle massage using grape seed oil invokes a feeling of serenity and deep relaxation.Spinal Massage using the Breuss/Dorn Method In the Breuss Method, the spine is massaged with St. John's Wort oil to relax the entire nervous system of the body, while the Dorn Method treats misaligned vertebrae through carefully applied pressure and rhythmic movement. These processes are combined in this massage therapy to treat a variety of back complaints, including lower back, sciatic and neck pain. Post-treatment benefits include an erect posture, increased sense of wellbeing and relaxation.
