  • Alex Lake Zurich

    Alex Lake Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland

    On the Western Shore of Lake Zürich, just between Zürich and Zug, is Alex Lake Zürich, a contemporary boutique hotel with a private marina and boat-loads of style. Perched on the water’s edge and set across five floors with a special architectural design of stone and glass, the newly opened hotel’s 44 rooms and suites all offer glorious lake views, terraces and kitchens. Prices start at S$404 per night, including breakfast.

    The hotel’s all-day restaurant and bar, The Boathouse, serves international dishes made with Swiss-sourced produce as well as regional wines. A stroll along the waterfront terrace provides spectacular views of the lake, and guests have access to all the features in the wellness area, which includes a sauna, steam room, relaxation area, fitness room, plunge pool, spa treatment room and even direct access to the lake if you feel like taking a dip in those clear waters. You can also use the hotel yacht, do water sports on the lake, ride their bicycles around town and more.

    One of the highlights of Lake Zurich is the leisurely boat trip to the picturesque town of Rapperswil, famous for its rose gardens, medieval castle and the longest wooden bridge in Switzerland.
