Villa Honegg – A Stunning Boutique Hotel In The Swiss Alps
Villa Honegg is a special hotel with a rich story. It was originally constructed in 1905 by Emil Durrer-Traxler who managed to build his own hotel without even using an architect. It opened in 1906 and back then it had 72 beds which guests could rent for weeks at a time. It had tennis, boules, croquet and billiards. In 1997 the hotel was sold and then in 2007 it got a new owner once again. After years of renovations, in 2011, the hotel opened its doors once again.
Now Villa Honegg is the smallest superior 5-star hotel in Switzerland. It sits atop a hillside, above Lake Lucerne at an altitude of 914 meters above sea level. From up here the views are amazing. You can see the Alps, the lake, the valley and you can do that while swimming in the outdoor infinity pool.
The outdoor pool is constantly heated at 34 degrees celsius throughout the seasons so it’s always comfortable and ready to introduce its guests into a mirifical atmosphere with unique and unforgettable moments.
This charming boutique hotel now offers its guests 23 rooms, with dimensions ranging from 238 sq ft (22 sqm) to 1000 sq ft (92 sqm). They’re decorated with a lot of natural materials in the Art Nouveau style and using earthy and neutral colors. They’re all very inviting and elegant and even though there are no huge windows to connect them with the outdoors, the views are still a part of their charm.
The hotel has a restaurant with the options of both indoor and outdoor dining. Inside, the decor is elegant and welcoming and outdoors the focus is on the views. There are also other facilities which the guests can enjoy, such as a fitness center, a spa, a steam room, a sauna,a movie theater and two pools. The indoor pool has a large adjacent lounge space with comfortable seating and an underwater music system.
