The wellness-focused Chenot Group has announced the launch of Chenot Palace Weggis, a 20,000ft², 97-key retreat set between central Switzerland’s Lake Lucerne and the peaks of Mounts Rigi and Pilatus.

Designed by Swiss architect Davide Macullo, interiors draw from traditional Swiss alpine aesthetics whilst incorporating contemporary materials and construction techniques. New for the group’s portfolio, the project incorporates zen gardens and a contemporary art gallery, as well as a series of dedicated sleeping technology gueestrooms offering research-guided wellness accommodation.

“We are thrilled to launch our flagship property in Weggis, Switzerland today,” says Dr. George Gaitanos, Scientific Director and Chief Operating Officer of Chenot Group. “With the help of David Macullo and his specialist team, we have brought the Chenot vision to life, where the design emulates our philosophy of wellbeing as well as reflect the purity and tranquillity of the destination.”

Elsewhere, the 5,000m² Spa at Chenot Palace Weggis features a full-service integrated retreat created with natural stone sourced from the nearby alps, with a 20m indoor pool reflecting the view over the lake and mountains beyond. Hand-carved ceilings throughout are joined by sculptural interpretations of colours and shapes present in the natural landscape.

Davide Macullo, founder, Davide Macullo Architects, comments: “Chenot Palace Weggis is a vision that has become reality. It is a journey into the senses and for the senses. An organism that speaks directly to our most desired perceptions. Designed to put us at ease and allow us to enter into intimacy with our being, it embraces the philosophy of Henri Chenot which leads to the ideal of a healthy life, both physical and mental.”
