The crystal lakes and majestic peaks of the Swiss Alps inspired the 2009 renovation of the Palace Wellness Spa at Badrutts Palace Hotel. Local artisans helped craft spaces from cembran pine and San Bernadino silver into an eco-friendly space with ten treatment rooms, including a hair spa, pedicure area, solarium, body treatment wing and private spa suites, as well as saunas, steam baths, and an indoor and outdoor heated pool. In addition to Anika Organic Luxury, Intraceuticals, Shodeea and La Biosthetique products, the spa also uses organic botanicals in treatments focused on mind-body balance. Many treatments draw inspiration from Ayurvedic, Thai massage and shiatsu traditions.

We at Five Star Alliance work tirelessly to ensure we bring you the best luxury hotels selection and information regarding amenities, location, and highlights so you are confident that the hotel you choose will exceed your expectations and serve your needs. Sometimes, however, you are left with a few questions that go unanswered, and that’s why we’re here. Be sure to explore our new blog series ‘Your Questions Answered’ to find answers to real questions submitted to us by our clients regarding traveling with kids, pets, the best beach hotels, and much more.
Question: We are looking to book a 3 night accommodation, checking in September 6th and checking out September 9th. There are 5 of us, 3 adults and 2 kids ages 3 and 8. We are looking to stay at the Palace Luzern in Switzerland.
Answer: The Palace Luzern has the following room types and options available for your dates of travel. The hotel has a maximum occupancy of 3 people per room, so you would have to have 2 adults and 1 child stay in one room, and then have 1 adult and 1 child stay in the other room. The hotel unfortunately does not have any room options that can accommodate 3 adults and 2 children or 2 adults and 2 children in one room. The hotel does have interconnecting room options, so we would suggest making 2 reservations for the following room type and requesting that they be interconnecting. (This request cannot be guaranteed and is based on availability, but the hotel would do its best to honor this request.) One More Night 3 For 2 Amex Exclusive - Double Room With City View 25sqm - For 2 adults and 1 child, the nightly breakdown would be 377 Swiss Francs plus 6.09 Swiss Francs per day in taxes for an approximate total of 1,151.70 Swiss Francs, which is approximately $1175.81. (This rate includes the extra person charge) The second room, with 1 adult and 1 child would be 327 Swiss Francs and 4.60 Swiss Francs per day in taxes for an approximate total of 994.80 Swiss Francs which is about $1015.62. (Please be advised that the One More Night 3 for 2 deal is already factored into the price, and to receive this discounted rate you must pay with an American Express card.) Rates and availability are subject to change prior to making a reservation.
To make a reservation for these room types, simply click on the hotel name link, enter your dates of travel, select the room type, and fill in the booking form. Please be sure to fill in the Special Request field stating that you will have a child staying in one room and request an extra rollaway bed to be added as well as request having your two rooms be interconnecting. Once you have completed the first reservation, simply repeat the process to make the second reservation and fill in the Special Request field requesting 2 twin beds and to have that room interconnect with your previous reservation.
Please be advised that the rates, availability, as well as any extra person charges are subject to change depending on the hotel’s policies.
