La Réserve has expanded its collection of boutique luxury hotels with the recent opening of La Réserve Eden au Lac Zurich, Switzerland’s newest five-star hotel. A sister property to La Réserve’s existing hotels in Paris, Ramatuelle and Geneva, the former Eden au Lac hotel originally opened in 1909, but has now been completely revitalised.
Located on Zurich’s waterfront, the luxury property features 40 rooms and suites, two bars and restaurants that provide spectacular views of the city and the lake.
The hotel’s fabled facade, its blue and white striped blinds protecting elaborate balconies, lion heads and other historical sculptures, has been preserved as a reminder of an intelligent and elegant leisure spirit that began in the early 20th century.
In an almost archaeological approach, the bricks of the walls, marble of the basements, solid-wood floors and concrete details have been exhumed from beneath successive layers of plaster, tapestries or wallpaper. These newly revealed elements and natural materials infuse the place with a spirit of timeless modernity.
La Réserve Eden au Lac Zurich is a structural place with the elegance of the minimum, in which a number of artistic surprises along with sophisticated, curated objects are subtly exhibited: clever lighting in blown glass, sculptural brushed stainless steel door handles, light marble cladding, flattering mirrors and fine glass partitions.
There are eight room categories, ranging from 22 to 79 square metres. Located on the upper floors and overlooking the lake. Like the hotel, its rooms and suites reflect a quest for a structurally elegant and modern bare minimum.
Dining options include the Eden Kitchen and Bar, La Muna and La Muna Terrace.
