Be aware that honeymoon hotels can sell out in the peak seasons (whether that be in the summer or winter). If you are interested in any of these hotels, I would recommend booking sooner rather than later. For each of them I have included booking links to ease the process.
1) Schlosshotel, Zermatt
No place is more perfect for a Swiss honeymoon than Zermatt, which sits in the shadow of the Matterhorn. And no hotel is more perfect than the tranquil Schlosshotel Zermatt.
This 4-star hotel has an understated exterior that blends in nicely with the picturesque landscape. It’s surrounded on all sides by snow-dusted Alpine peaks. Fields of wildflowers also grow around the hotel, making it the perfect romantic getaway.
The lobby and rooms complement the quiet countryside feel of Zermatt wonderfully. Earthy bare-brick walls and brown leather make it feel as if you’re relaxing at home. Huge fireplaces warm up the rooms in winter. The room’s open-plan kitchens are also great for cooking your own romantic meals.
2) Sunstar Hotel & Spa, Grindelwald
Grindelwald, with its unmatched views of Jungfraujoch, is one of the most romantic places in Switzerland.
The Sunstar Hotel & Spa Grindelwald takes full advantage of that as you can start your Swiss honeymoon break with a glass of complimentary champagne delivered straight to your room.
The rooms are at once cozy and expansive. Supple fur throws over the blankets make for a snug night’s sleep, and the views from almost anywhere are spectacular. But if you’d like the best views, be sure to request an Eiger-facing room.
The Sunstar’s saunas and Roman baths are also particularly notable. After a hard day hiking or on the trails, these facilities will have what you need to relax. Hit the dry-heat Roman bath, or make use of the Finnish log-cabin sauna. To invigorate your immune system, try out the hotel’s unique ‘odorium’ aroma steam bath.
The restaurants Adlerstube and Ambiance both make for excellent evening choices. In the former you can enjoy your meal on the picturesque terrace. If you visit during the summer months, the latter makes for a great choice with its outdoor BBQ.
3) Kurhaus Cademario Hotel & Spa, Lugano
Kurhaus Cademario Hotel & Spa is one of the best hotels in Switzerland for a honeymoon. The reason for this is simple – it’s in one of the most intimate spots in the country. The hotel boasts some of the best views of Lake Lugano around.
The Cademario is marketed as a wellness center due to its idyllic location on a south-facing slope. Its spa facilities are second to none, with several swimming pools and saunas available. One pool is located inside a cavern, and its mineral-rich waters are particularly invigorating.
The hotel also offers special services to newlyweds, included specially discounted suites. Floral arrangements and tailored beauty treatments are also made available to the bride and groom.
4) Hotel Bristol, Geneva
The Hotel Bristol is a stone’s throw from the shores of Lake Geneva. You can enjoy the world-famous Jet D’Eau on the opposite shore, or enjoy a charming walk down the Quai du Mont-Blanc. On clear days, you might even see the famous French mountain.
The interior of the hotel is peaceful and relaxing. The guest rooms are large and inviting, with deep carpets to warm the toes in the winter months.
5) Royal Savoy Hotel & Spa, Lausanne
The Royal Savoy is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the town. It offers a relaxed setting with a beautiful garden, a rooftop bar and a spa with almost endless treatment options.
The hotel is neither on the lake nor in the town center. While this sounds like a drawback, it’s actually a good thing. Its unique residential location makes it quiet and serene in comparison to other hotels.
It’s also one of the most beautiful settings imaginable for a Swiss honeymoon. The building looks like a fairytale castle, with turrets and soft lighting illuminating the exterior. It has a large spa onsite with hammam, saunas and fitness suites. If you’ve traveled far, the anti-jet-lag massages are great for ensuring you get the most out of your honeymoon.
6) Burgenstock Hotel & Alpine Spa, Lucerne
The Bürgenstock Hotel sprawls across 50 hectares of pristine Alpine wilderness, and the sweeping panoramas it offers from its balconies and patios are like nowhere else in Switzerland.
The views of Lake Lucerne aside, guests will be able to appreciate the rolling Alpine meadows and jagged peaks that loom in the distance.
The hotel is really four hotels in one, and each exudes its own character. From the classical lines of the Belle Époque Palace Hotel to the more modern, Cubist Bürgenstock Hotel, there’s something for all tastes (and budgets).
7) Hotel La Palma Au Lac, Locarno
The beautiful Hotel La Palma Au Lac sits on Lake Locarno, which straddles the Swiss-Italian border. As romantic Swiss honeymoon destinations go, this is one of the best.
Many rooms have private sun terraces where couples can sip champagne and enjoy the beautiful lake views. The hotel’s pizza/pasta restaurant continues this trend, with floor-to-ceiling windows so you can look out onto the lake.
The hotel’s location also allows for evening walks along the lakeside or in the historic town center. Its proximity to the center also means you can enjoy a wonderful meal in one of the many cozy restaurants found there.
8) Grand Hotel Suisse Majestic, Montreux
This beautiful, classical building is one of the best Swiss hotels for a honeymoon. It’s on the opposite end of Lake Geneva in the town of Montreaux. While it may be the less famous side of the lake, it’s no less beautiful.
Grand Hotel Suisse Majestic has a great restaurant onsite that offers fantastic lakeside views. But if you’re in the mood for sampling Montreux’s restaurant scene, there’s plenty to offer. The hotel also boasts easy access to Montreux’s high street for your vacation shopping needs.
The rooms are beautifully furnished and well-illuminated by natural light. If you’d like a lakeside view for the ultimate romantic backdrop, be sure to specify when booking.
In the mood for a nightcap? The hotel’s onsite covered bar is a great spot whatever the season. The glass-encased bar area allows you to enjoy the views while staying snug and comfortable.
9) Dolder Grand, Zurich
The Dolder Grand is a Zurich icon, and one of the best honeymoon destinations in Switzerland.
Its building is large and postcard-perfect with the surrounding woodland makes for an intimate and tranquil stroll.
The Dolder Grand sits on the side of a mountain, but it still offers easy city access. A grandiose funicular can bring you up from the nearest tram station. You can also head up by car, as you enjoy the breathtaking views of the hotel’s vast driveway.
The interior of the hotel makes for one of the most awe-inspiring honeymoon settings possible. Crystal chandeliers and classic art pieces are found throughout. The mood is completed with the abundance of large blooming flowers that can be seen everywhere.
10) The Cambrian, Adelboden
The Cambrian is great for newlyweds who want to escape the city completely. It’s one of the best honeymoon hotels in Switzerland, with breathtaking views of the Bernese Oberland.
The views are amazing from anywhere in the Cambrian. Flower-dotted meadows crowd around the hotel, and the Alps loom all around. The Cambrian is south-facing, and sits opposite a crowded horizon full of snow-capped mountains.
The hotel is also in a great place if you want to go skiing. It’s even better for the start of a hike, which allows walkers to enjoy the very best of the Swiss Alps.
11) Hotel Royal St George, Interlaken
Few conversations about Switzerland’s most romantic hotels are complete without discussing Interlaken.
This beautiful and breathtaking slice of land sits between two lakes (hence the name – ‘Interlaken’). It’s a great spot for those looking to enjoy a relaxing honeymoon, and equally appropriate for nature-loving newlyweds.
The Hotel Royal St George is easily the best Swiss honeymoon hotel in Interlaken. It’s a jaw-droppingly gorgeous building, with a huge ballroom that’s perfect for a romantic dance. The hotel is well used to hosting honeymooning couples, and pulls all the stops out. Their beautiful terrace offers views of the Harder Kulm, and is a great place for an evening nightcap.
Unusually among Swiss luxury hotels, pets are welcome. If you’ve got a dog or cat that you cannot bear to leave at home, then, you’re free to bring them.
The hotel makes the most of its awe-inspiring setting. The onsite restaurant has a verandah that can seat up to 50 people. Guests can even arrange to have a boat take them out onto the lakes.
12) Valsana Hotel, Arosa
Valsana Hotel is one of the best hotels in Switzerland for the health-conscious. It sits 5900 feet above sea level, with impressive views of Obersee Lake and nearby forests.
Despite its lofty perch, the Valsana is only 5 minutes away from the town center. The cable car station is even closer, and can quickly get you to the top of the Weisshorn. One of the most unique activities you can do here is visit the nearby Arosa Bear Sanctuary. Here you can see one of the sanctuary’s six bears, rescued from across Europe.
The singular vibe continues in the hotel’s interior. Aztec furnishings have been effortlessly married with the Swiss Alpine esthetic. This makes for a Swiss hotel honeymoon quite unlike any other.
The environmentally conscious will be pleased with the Valsana, too. This is due to the fact that it’s powered by an ice battery and heated by geothermal energy. Its carbon footprint is, therefore, impressively low.
The spa is small by many Swiss hotel standards, but no less impressive. Guests can enjoy any number of treatments, including their signature 90-minute massage.
13) Suvretta House, St. Moritz
If you are looking for a honeymoon hotel in St Moritz, take a look at the beautiful Suvretta House hotel.
Whether you are looking to be right on the ski slopes in the winter or close by to the hiking trails in the summer, the Suvretta House is perfectly located for whatever activity you choose.
Suvretta House is a mix between a castle and Alpine ski lodge. The hotel retains a lot of the original decor from its 1912 opening, and its lobby and restaurants retain a lot of charming old-school style.
Guests tired from their day on the trails will find many options to enjoy their honeymoon in the hotel’s spa and wellness facilities. This even includes a 25-meter swimming pool in addition to several other highlights.
If you are looking to enjoy the views, head outside to the the heated pool that offers wonderful views of the surrounding mountains.
