Mandarin Oriental to manage hotel on Lake Lucerne
Mandarin Oriental has confirmed it will manage and re-brand an existing hotel on Lake Lucerne, Switzerland.
The property, which first opened in 1906, is currently undergoing an extensive renovation and will re-open as Mandarin Oriental Palace, Luzern at the end of 2020.
The multi-million-dollar renovation will include the restyling of all guestrooms and suites, a redesign of public areas and the landscaping of the outdoor grounds.
When finished, the hotel will comprise 146 rooms and suites with views of the lake and mountains, a restaurant, bar, social and meeting facilities, spa and fitness room.
“We look forward to opening a new hotel in Switzerland, which will complement our growing portfolio in Europe, including our other Swiss hotel in Geneva," said group chief executive James Riley.
"Lake Lucerne has long been a popular destination for luxury travellers and it will now be home to one of Switzerland’s most exclusive properties, providing guests with Mandarin Oriental’s exemplary service for which the brand is renowned."
Lake Lucerne is located in central Switzerland and is the fourth largest lake in the country. It is known locally as Lake Luzern.
