Housed in a palatial estate in a jewel-box Lucerne village Mark Twain once described as the “charmingest place”, it’s hard to imagine a dreamier setting for a world-class wellness retreat. Launched to great fanfare in 2020, the nearly 200,000sq m property marks the latest chapter in the illustrious history of the Chenot Method, a holistic, research-driven and highly personalised approach to longevity, recovery and wellbeing.
Still, it’s at the state-of-the-art wellness facilities where the true magic of Chenot Palace reveals itself. Beginning with a series of comprehensive diagnostic tests and medical consultations, which allow a dream team of leading-edge experts to personalise guests’ experience, each six-day programme promises a carefully supervised journey to reset the body and mind for better health. Results-driven treatments span a range of hydrotherapies, electrostimulation and biofeedback self-training through to more indulgent – but equally effective – offerings like neuro-acoustic deep relaxation, phyto-mud treatments and Chenot’s signature “energetic” massages.
Whichever programme you book, this robust cocktail of therapies is just the beginning. A core tenant of the Chenot Method, guests leave armed with tailored guidance on how to assess and prioritise their own lifestyle choices and a better understanding of what living a healthy, balanced life may mean for them.
