Dolder grand hotel, Zurich

The Dolder grand hotel was built and designed in 1899 by Jacques Gros, in Lake Zürich and the Alps.It is also the original "Curhaus" (health spa).
After a construction phase lasting four years, is has a new face :it has been transformed into a luxury-modern city resort, by a team of professionals including Foster and Partners for architecture, interior design by United Designers, and the spa concept by spa-industry visionary, Arizona-based Sylvia Sepielli.

carezza suit

Inspired by Alberto Giacometti, Swiss artist and sculptor. The outstanding feature of the Carezza Suite on the top floor of the Spa Wing is its sculpturally inspired fittings and furnishings. All the furniture and lighting is organic in shape, suggestive of works of art. The ceiling-to-floor windows create an almost limitless sensation of space

nspired by the maestro himself, Herbert von Karajan, conductor. Classical music influences classical architecture: at the highest point in the tower of the main building is the Maestro Suite. This extraordinary twotier, top-class suite offers occupants some 400 square metres (4,300 square feet) of living space
The spa :4000 square metre complex of classical tradition with a techno beat
