Grand Resort Bad Ragaz, Switzerland, opens new Presidential Suite

Europe’s leading Wellbeing and Medical Health Centre, Grand Resort Bad Ragaz, has announced the opening of its most luxurious residence to date - The Presidential Suite. Boasting exquisite features such as a dazzling Swarovski crystal ceiling and opulent gold dust in the wallpaper, the recently completed residence at this five-star resort leaves nothing to be desired.

The elegant 300 square metre Presidential Suite is situated on the fifth floor of the Spa Suites building. On setting foot in the entrance area, with its elaborate intarsia floor and thousands of glass crystals, guests will enter a fairy-tale world. The new suite is home to two impressive bedrooms, a spacious living room, a deluxe wine cabinet, a practical kitchen area, and even a cigar humidor, and is designed to offer guests a luxurious home away from home, set against the stunning backdrop of the Swiss Alps.

The spacious dining room, with its floor-to-ceiling windows, opens out onto one of four large balconies, which allow for spectacular views of the vineyards of the Bündner Herrschaft and the lush Graubünden Rhine Valley. The impressive living room has an adjoining lounge with a temperate wine cabinet which is kept stocked by the team of six butlers, working under Head Butler Andreas Karrasch. The high-tech equipment such as the Bang & Olufsen televisions and music system, the discreetly positioned screens and the lighting system and the blinds are all controlled via iPad.

Grand Resort Bad Ragaz was delighted to commission high-profile interior designer, Claudio Carbone, to design all of the furniture for the luxury suite. Throughout the new residence, Carbone has carefully incorporated customised ceiling lights and standard lamps made of either high-end Venetian Murano glass or decorated with exquisite Swarovski stones, as well as marble floors with elaborate inlay work and sophisticated rosewood furniture.

On the new Presidential Suite, Claudio Carbone says: “Here, the guest is truly able to feel the difference – each room offers a unique new experience for the senses.” Carbone considers impeccable craftsmanship and using only the very finest materials to be crucial to his work. The floor-to-ceiling windows also allow the surrounding landscape to itself become a further feature of the vast space.  

Upon entering the suite, guests are met by an elaborate beige Bianco Perlino marble intarsia floor and more than 30,000 glass crystals. Extravagant details, such as laser-engraved glass panels, lacquered rosewood panelling and large mother-of-pearl inlays in the dining table add the finishing touches to the exclusive interior.

Carbone deliberately uses recurring stylistic elements, such as the Venetian Murano glass baubles that seem to float effortlessly above the table. The light they cast is designed to remind guests of the thermal water that is central to the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz. In the dressing room, a chair upholstered with salmon leather is positioned below a Swarovski crystal ceiling, while the bathroom sparkles with the gold dust in the wallpaper.  

While the opulent bedrooms are decorated with ray leather inlay work, chairs upholstered with salmon leather and silk carpets, the two bathrooms, featuring Bianco Perlino marble, provide a wonderful wellness oases equipped with a sauna, a freestanding whirlpool bathtub and a steam bath. As in all rooms at the Spa Suites building, thermal water – which promotes health and wellbeing – flows from the taps.  

To ensure that the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz can meet its guests’ demand for large suites, the resort has three premium suites in addition to the Presidential Suite: the exclusive Penthouse (600 square metres), the luxurious Royal Suite (200 square metres) and the historic Imperial Suite (105 square metres). With its 267 rooms spread over two five-star hotels – the Grand Hotel Quellenhof & Spa Suites and the Grand Hotel Hof Ragaz – the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz offers different interior styles to suit every taste: from classic & elegant to traditional & comfortable, from historic & princely to ultra-modern & puristic. Europe’s Leading Wellbeing & Medical Health Resort leaves nothing to be desired – and not just with regard to the choice of rooms and suites.
