Do you know the feeling when you walk into a hotel and immediately feel at home? I had this feeling at Royal Savoy Hotel! This top notch five star hotel only opened 5 years ago after a full renovation and definitely is one of my favorite hotels in Switzerland! The hotel is located on one of the prime locations in Lausanne. I explored the neighborhood and was surprised that Lake Leman is only a few steps away. All major things you should visit in Lausanne such as the Olympic park and museum are within walking distance. The friendly concierge gave me a map and some helpful tips on things I needed to see.
As mentioned before, I was impressed with this hotel right from the beginning. From the outside, Royal Savoy Hotel looks like a fairytale palace. The building is mind blowing! From the inside, the gorgeous lobby area is impressive with all its art work. This hotel is decorated with eye for detail. The grand central chandelier is impressive and is the key factor in the lobby area. I could spend a whole day here, lounging in one of the luxurious salons…
Everything is translated in the feel of 17th and 18th century luxury hotels combined with an up to date and trendy décor. Trust me, this is not just an ordinary hotel. It definitely is an Instagrammable place! From the luxurious glassed hallways to the Japanese garden retreats. Each inch resembles pure luxury.
Each room at the Royal Savoy Hotel is large and luxuriously appointed. All the amenities I would expect from a five star luxury hotel were there such as coffee making facilities and high quality furnishings. The bed was heavenly! I really appreciated the overall décor and style of the room with its wooden floors.
Marble bathroom was very large featuring a bathtub, a large walk-in (rain)shower and fancy Bulgari toiletries. Very luxurious bathroom! They are my favorite!
During our stay I explored the Spa du Royal, the one of a kind spa area at Royal Savoy Hotel! I was blown away. This spa area is ultra luxurious and guarantees a relaxed and exciting experience! An amazing indoor and outdoor pool, sauna, steam room, etc. It’s all there and maintained perfectly! For me, Spa du Royal is definitely one of the key factors of the hotel. At 1500 m², it is HUGE! There’s also a full fitness facility with the most up to date equipment. Although I didn’t experience a spa treatment myself, there’s an extensive menu to choose from! I bet the treatments are top notch!
Another highlight at the Royal Savoy Hotel is La Brasserie Du Royal, a fine dining restaurant with recipes from the region. This is also the place where they serve breakfast. Speaking of design, I’d rate this restaurant 10/10. It’s a beautiful restaurant. The quality of the food truly is outstanding! I received my eggs exactly as requested. Service was absolutely great!
A more casual experience would be the beautiful Lobby Lounge where they serve aperitifs and snacks in style.
I can’t say enough good things about the Royal Savoy Hotel. This well designed hotel is one of the most luxurious hotels in town with an intimate yet stylish design. This is not a hotel just for business travelers, also leisure travelers will appreciate the unique prime location and facilities. No wonder Royal Savoy Hotel is one of the best rated hotels in the area. Can’t wait to return to this jewel!
