Montreux hotel to build Nautilus floating suites on Lake Geneva

If you are a world traveller who enjoys experiencing natural beauty and the latest holiday innovation, this initiative is for you.

Spheric interior with no view

Switzerland is the small country right at the heart of Europe where you can enjoy natural scenery: Mountains, water and ancient cities are common views. Its most celebrated, UNESCO protected location is Lake Geneva. On the north side of the Alps, shared between Switzerland and France, it is one of the largest lakes in Western Europe. The view alone is worth the journey to this little country. Soon, you will be able to take the experience to new heights by staying in a floating hotel which will open on the lake next year.

The 4-star Eurotel Hotel, located in Montreux, has announced the start of construction of a Nautilus structure, composed of three floating suites and a panoramic restaurant. In the shape of the mollusc shell it is named after, it will offer a unique opportunity to spend the night on the lake in a luxury hotel with all the services to make for an unforgettable stay.

“Our hotel is looking to the future of luxury hospitality. We will offer our guests an experience that will appeal to people who travel to the trendiest places such as Dubai, New York or the Caribbean. The Nautilus is the first project of its kind to come to life in Switzerland and will put us on the map. Our extravagant and sumptuous suites will offer the best views and the most outstanding service in our region.” Said Stephane Compagnon, Director of the Eurotel Hotel.

Equipped with the latest technology to ensure guests in the suites can order all services from the comfort of their room, the Nautilus will also be a sustainable building. A system to store and recycle used water and waste will be fitted in the rooms, as well as a hydroelectric generator. Carbon neutral and elegant, the Nautilus structure is a unique project in Switzerland. Designed to integrate the incredible panorama, a stay in the suite promises a peaceful night sleeping to the rhythm of the lake. 

After having received the official building permit from government officials, reservations opened on April 1st 2017 via the website, to start welcoming guests in June 2018. The first occupants will enter the suites when the Montreux Jazz Festival opens its doors for the 52nd edition.   Book now to experience the best Switzerland has to offer in natural beauty and luxury combined with cutting-edge, environmentally conscious engineering.
