We are delighted to introduce a Spa to our range that truly understands the concepts of Holistic Wellness and offers an experience that will stay with you long after you have returned home.
The Givenchy Spa at Le Mirador Kempinski is located in Mont Pelerin between Lausanne and Montreux in Switzerland. Set in stunning surroundings by Lake Geneva, the Spa is easily accessible from Gevena and Lausanne, Bern train station or even cable car from Vevey! Due to the fact that Le Mirador Kempinski & Givenchy Spa is perched on a mountainside your experience will truly be like no other when you are gazing across Lake Geneva or watching a cloud pass you by at eye level!
An extraordinary collection of total body rejuvenation treatments are available at the Givenchy Spa; Deep Stone Therapy, energising Lomi-Lomi, reflexology and bespoke massages are just a sample of what you could enjoy during your stay. Maybe you would prefer a Private Day Spa Suite which offers 90 square metres of sanctuary in a naturally lit space, offering complete privacy and serenity. You might also want to take advantage of the Spa’s wet areas especially as the Spa pool’s glass domed roof allows you an unfettered view of Swiss skies as you recline and relax.
This Spa has certainly made it to many peoples ‘Must Do’ list when visiting Switzerland and here at Sanctuary Spa Holidays we can’t recommend it highly enough.

Set on a hill just above the ultra-glitz ski resort, The Gstaad Palace has been renowned for its authenticity, elegance and unique ambiance. Thus when designing the spa, the main focus was to create an outstanding wellness oasis which blends perfectly into the overall hotel concept.
The Palace Spa features authentic decor and ambiance which radiate a magical charm. The calming space filled with natural wood, granite and running water emulates the atmosphere of the mountains. It’s hard to drag yourself away from the salubrious relaxation area, where you sit around a wood-burning fire and sip herbal teas, but it’s the hydro pool that hypnotizes as you swim from the inside out into the open air, surrounded by snow in winter.
Its exclusive facilities are spread over 1800 m² and include eight treatment rooms, a Private Spa Suite, saunas and steam baths, relaxation areas with incredible views, an indoor pool and an outdoor pool with Jacuzzi, a state-of-the-art gym, a pilates studio and a unique hammam experience with seven rooms. With this major investment Gstaad created an exclusive and extraordinary wellness centre, which exceeds the expectations of even the most discerning spa connoisseurs.
The priority was to bring the mountain feeling into the spa, therefore a 60-metre-long stone wall was built with granite from the nearby Blausee region in the Bernese Oberland.

We’re extremely excited to announce that one of our favourite retreats, Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa, was honoured with the award for Destination Spa of the Year: Asia & Australasia at the World Spa Awards hosted in London on Sunday evening.
The World Spa Awards is a new initiative that has been introduced by some of the leading figures in the spa industry. Kamalaya faced exceptional competition from across the world and was shortlisted alongside three other finalists in the Asia & Australasia region. Four other regions were recognised by the awards including America (North & South), Africa, Middle East & Africa and Europe.
We’re told that each of the shortlisted properties underwent some serious scrutiny by an expert judging panel which included two site visits, one by an ‘official judge’ and one by a ‘mystery judge’ who stayed at the resort undercover!
We visited Kamalaya last year so the resort has also undergone our own rigorous selection procedure. We understand that the final winners were selected for best practice and excelling in client service (tick), a well researched and comprehensive menu of treatments (tick – over 70 therapies and treatments on their spa menu), high quality training (tick – the massages are out of this world!), and having a point of difference from the opposition through implementation of innovative ideas (definitely – Kamalaya offers ten wellness programs from Detoxification to Stress & Burnout that can be tailored to each guest’s specific health goals).
This award follows on from Kamalaya’s success in 2011 when the resort was named Spa Retreat of the Year 2011 at the Asia Spa Awards in Hong Kong; Kamalaya also won two awards for its cuisine: Best Conscious Cuisine at the 2011 Crystal Awards in Singapore and Asia Spa’s Spa Cuisine of the Year.
