Today I would like to speak about my experience at hotel Royal Savoy in Lausanne, a Swiss French city, near Geneve. During this occasion, I discovered the new SPA du Royal, launched on first June 2016. Now let’s go to speak about my experience!
After the trip on the train, we arrived in Lausanne and from the station we gone on foot to the hotel, which it remains very near to the station. However, if you are the big lazy you can take the metro and stop at the “Délices” metro stop. There are two entrances, one for cars and one for those who are walking, and you will notice immediately how big and beautiful this building that looks like a real castle for princesses!
As soon as we got inside we were greeted by friendly staff who made us sit in the outside area of the bar: here there are plenty of tables to sit and have a drink. We arrived at 2:00 p.m. and we drunk two peach ice tea. In this beautiful space, surrounded by many trees, we then waited for the return of the lady who had greeted us and then accompanied us in the room, showing us every single thing.
My room at Royal Savoy Lausanne
>My room was the 119, on the first floor, with predominant view of the hotel entrance and a small balcony overlooking the street, towards Lake Lemano. The atmosphere was really great, but I especially liked that the bed was not placed in the front of the door: the room, in fact, had a small hall – complete with a built-in closet with safety deposit box – that led to the night area, where however there was also a chair and a desk.
The thing that most impressed me is definitely the light in every room, as well as the entrance and in the restaurant, there were lots of windows that allowed to illuminate the rooms with natural light (I like it!). In the room, then, there was also a practical tablet, a corner bar to drink tea or coffee, mini bar and a very nice bathroom with shower (the shower head is wonderful … it seems to be in the rain) and hair dryver. Inside the bathroom, however, they could use the Hermès products offered by the hotel Royal Savoy!
Overall, I can say that the room was very beautiful and there are a great attention for the detail, with historic paintings and photographs that showed the long history behind this hotel, that it was opened in 1909. The hospitality in our room was really very nice, because after our tour of the city in the afternoon and dinner, we ended up with the ready bed, slippers and a bottle of water on each bedside table.
SPA du Royal – Lausanne
Now let’s move into the SPA du Royal in Lausanne, the area that was just inaugurated in June. The Royal Savoy hotel spa spans across an area of 1,500 square meters and features an indoor and an outdoor area where there are pool, Jacuzzi, hammam, sauna, steam rooms, a spa only for women, 2 rooms for relaxation (there are some wonderful water beds, that invite you to relax and fall asleep right :-D), 8 treatment rooms, a private spa – where we were greeted me and my partner for the message – a fitness center with super technological equipment to train, hair studio and a boutique spa, where buy the products for the beauty and some clothing.
In our tour in the SPA we were accompanied by Jocelyn and Stephany that, before that, we were allowed to make a beautiful body massage in the company of two exceptional professionals. The massage lasted about 50 minutes, but I think I could stay forever on that bed to get me to massage with soft lighting and background music. The atmosphere was very relaxed, refined and private spa is perfect for a long romantic weekend!
Brasserie Du Royal Lausanne
Let’s end talking about the Brasserie Du Royal, designer and contemporary restaurant, where you can enjoy traditional dishes with a modern twist. The menù of this restaurant is designed by the chef from Alsace with triple star Michelin, Marc Haeberlin, and is proposed by Executive Chef Julien Krauss. As you can see on the official website of Brasserie Du Royal Lausanne, there are very many dishes and, in addition, you can also organize your lunch / dinner choosing to sit in one of four bright rooms.
In the morning, then, you can head to breakfast in the main room, where there is the open kitchen! Don’t forget, too, that the Brasserie Du Royal has a variety of wines and local produce, to be enjoyed at any time of the year. Me and my partner enjoyed a delicious European breakfast with bread and croissants, jam and butter, tea and water, but you find also the American breakfast with eggs, bacon, fruits and more. If you wish the breakfast can be delivered in your room, but on condition that you put the breakfast signboard out of the room until 2:00 am!
It was a wonderful and relaxing experience! If you want to spend a short but relaxing weekend in Switzerland, in Lausanne, I suggest you to discover the hospitality of the hotel Royal Savoy. Once again, I thank all the hotel staff, Jocelyn and Stephany for visiting the SPA, Lucy and Morgane of Pr-Ticular for the experience!
