Fabled Fairmont Le Montreux Palace reveals facelift

Phase One of extensive renovation project completed at Swiss luxury hotel

Fairmont Le Montreux Palace, an iconic Belle Époque landmark since 1906, has completed the first phase of an extensive renovation project encompassing the refurbishment of 60 lake view rooms and enhancements to a third of its lake-facing facade.

The renovation project of the Swiss property draws inspiration from the breathtaking beauty of Lake Geneva and the hotel’s majestic architecture. Meticulous attention to detail has been the cornerstone, seamlessly integrating the essence of the surroundings into every design aspect.

The 60 newly refurbished rooms and suites exude a sense of tranquility and comfort, with a colour palette inspired by the ever-changing hues of the lake. Cream and blue tones, complemented by golden accents and subtle shades of pink, create an atmosphere of refined elegance that resonates throughout the furnishings, fabrics, and materials.

Highlights of the renovation include the preservation and enhancement of the hotel’s distinctive architectural features, such as intricate moldings and details. Solid oak floors, nacre embellished furniture, and hand-tufted carpets further elevate the guest experience, reflecting a commitment to craftsmanship and elegance. The spacious bathrooms exude a warm and romantic atmosphere with polished quartz vanity tops and custom-designed wallpaper featuring graceful water birds.

Renovated rooms & suites also introduce cutting-edge sound systems, transforming walls into speakers for an immersive audio experience, while a new in-room entertainment system seamlessly connects with guests’ personal devices.

Beyond aesthetic enhancements, the renovation prioritises environmental sustainability with upgrades to energy-efficient lighting and smart blinds, faucet aerators to reduce water consumption, and the elimination of single-use plastic from the guest experience.

In collaboration with heritage authorities, the facade renovation carefully preserves the building’s historical significance. Gilded balcony railings have been meticulously restored with gold leaf, seamlessly blending period materials with modern technology. LEDs installed on the façade lighting fixtures enhance the building’s charm while embracing contemporary standards.

The second phase of renovations, scheduled from October 2024 to April 2025, will transform an additional 70 rooms and the rest of the main facade. The final phase, from October 2025 to April 2026, will focus on the restoration of the remaining north facade.
