Kempinski has decided to add two new hotel properties in Switzerland to its portfolio. The first hotel is a five-star property in Engelberg, Kempinski Palace Engelberg – Titlis Swiss Alps – which is set to complete construction and welcome guests from all over the world from the spring season and the second property is located in the mountain resort village of Melchsee-Frutt in the centre of the country. It will benefit from the international management know-how and worldwide distribution network of Kempinski and be managed from the coming winter season.
From spring 2021, guests at Kempinski Palace Engelberg can look forward to a property that will offer 129 elegant rooms and suites made of high-quality materials. The first hotel will also have historical features dating from 1904 that were preserved in close cooperation with the monument conservation authorities. The second new addition to Kempinski Hotels will also be very impressive.
Since 2011 and 2016, respectively, guests have been welcomed in the two modern hotel buildings at 2,000 metres directly on Lake Melchsee. While the main building scores with a unique spa landscape on 900 square metres and offers 63 rooms, one junior suite and three suites in an authentic lodge ambience, the more family-oriented second building impresses with alpine cosiness and features 33 rooms.
Martin Smura, Chief Executive, Kempinski Hotels said in a statement that the company is delighted to add the two outstanding hotels to the portfolio of its international hotel chain in the future. He shared that the elegant Palace Hotel with its long history more than lives up to the brand’s promise of the highest product and service quality and fits perfectly with other Kempinski flagships, such as Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin. He stated that the jewel will continue the history of the Swiss Grand Hotels, and also help in continuing the selective expansion of the company as part of its long-term strategy.
