Only 2.5 hours drive from Zurich and lucky to be invited to try out their new Spa. I could not think of a better thing to do to escape yet another rainy day in Zurich!

There is however much more than simply the spa to get excited about…this wonderful majestic building right in the middle of Lausanne boasts (from the higher floors) a wonderful view over Lac Lemon, Lausanne itself and the Alps.

Built in 1909, the Royal Savoy has a prestigious history with the Spanish royal family making it their home whilst in exile during the Second World War and King Bhumibol of Thailand also regularly residing there. In the 1990’s rock stars like Joe Cocker and Phil Collins stayed there whilst headlining at the nearby Montreux Jazz Festival.

Come, have a little tour and see what’s on offer now:

In summary I am sold and can really recommend either a day trip or overnite stay to this fabulous hotel. If you are staying overnite check out the fabulous trips you can do such as taking a boat across the lake into France to visit Evian.
