An alpine spa for the stars
The 5-star Gstaad Palace Hotel with its towers, peaks, and bays rises like a fairy-tale castle over the renowned winter spa resort in the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland. Built on a sunny hill, visible by day and by night, the Palace embodies Swiss tradition, style, and luxury. It has acquired an international reputation as a symbol for hospitality, comprising modern comforts, and has become a popular venue for stars from show business, movies, and even European royalty.
One key to the luxury experience in this hotel is its spacious high-class spa area. Since water is a vital element in any spa environment, it was necessary to find a modern building material that could match the proposed contemporary look and also be suitable for wet rooms, saunas, shower rooms, and pool areas. The architects of Tschanz Architektur were quick to realise that AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Indoor matched their requirements exactly. As a drylining solution designed for wet areas, it not only features a high resistance to water due to the 100% inorganic materials, it also meets the highest design standards – a true 5-star solution for the Gstaad Palace.
