It towers majestically above Lake Lucerne, its view sweeping to the Grossen Mythen, the Hochflue, the Glärnisch and the Stanserhorn – and the mountains seem to wink back at the Hotel Villa Honegg. The Art Nouveau house high above Ennetbürgen on the Bürgenstock, converted and extended into an exclusive five-star superior hotel in 2011, welcomes its guests in a stylish ambience, candlelight and a scent of luxury that seems to be inherent to this house. Those who come here feel sheltered – indeed, in safe hands.
The agony of choice …
However, it is not only the tasteful interior design, the selected details and the discreet music that ensure this unique feel-good ambience – the fact that you feel so wonderfully welcomed with walking over the doorstep is all thanks to the attentive staff. You are greeted with a charming smile, and with a welcome drink in hand you are given a short tour of the hotel’s tasteful facilities. One thinks: Where to start the stay? With a cup of tea in front of the crackling fire in the cosy lounge? In the pleasantly heated outdoor infinity pool, where you can catch a glimpse of the deep blue Lake Lucerne through the steam? On the terrace, where the overwhelming mountain panorama touches your soul? Or in the restaurant, which invites you to enjoy its cosiness and Gault Millau points?
The mix makes the difference
The decision is taken from us: We are led to our room. The Villa Honegg has 23 rooms. The mix of natural materials and noble design is also refined here, the combination of these two so different elements has been executed absolutely successful and luxurious. And you notice: the well-being of the guests comes first, as everywhere in this house. From the 92-square-meter Master Suite with lake view to the Junior Suite with alpine panorama to the Classic Room with its own balcony, there is something for everyone. And if you are looking for more space or privacy, you can rent a private floor with a fireplace, your own dining room, lake view as well as alpine panorama. Or if you would like to go bigger, you can also rent the entire hotel for weddings or special occasions. To go even bigger, you can also rent the entire hotel for exclusive weddings or special occasions. The whole hotel would then be yours and you and your guests can enjoy a very private atmosphere with a tailormade service according to your wishes – for memories that remain unforgettable.
A spa in a class of its own
All rooms are furnished in such a way that you do not even want to leave the room. Which would be a pity! Because the hotel’s own spa is definitely worth a visit. Sauna, steam bath, various treatments, the 34 degree heated infinity pool and wellness loungers promise pure relaxation. And in between, the overwhelming view through the panoramic windows – can you ever get enough of it?
Culinary delights at their best
It goes without saying that anyone who visits a hotel like this has high expectations. And that goes for the cuisine, too. The chef and kitchen team consistently rely on regionality, products from the immediate surroundings are given preference. Also here: The down-to-earth is elaborately celebrated and first-class prepared, which a quick glance at the menu confirms. The Honegg meatloaf is legendary, the Älpler Magrone ravioli a poem and for the fine crème brûlée from Stanser Fladä you should definitely leave some room after the meal … The exclusive gourmet menu changes seasonally and tickles the palate with freshness and surprises, and whoever gets involved with the Experience menu will experience combinations that are as unique as they are harmonious. By the way, Villa Honegg has its own herb garden, which is lovingly tended. This means that nothing is left to chance when it comes to refining the dishes. In addition, busy Honegg bees collect honey for the guests’ breakfast.
By the way, there are many honeymooners at the Villa Honegg. No wonder, since the house and its surroundings promise pure romance.
