Swiss Retreat POHO Joins Small Luxury Hotels of the World

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Monday, 16 February 2009

POHO (Post Hotel Weggis) has been admitted to the global hotel organization Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

Amid breathtaking alpine scenery on the shore of Lake Lucerne, POHO is one of just ten hotels in Switzerland to join the collection of exquisite hotels.

 The boutique hotel opened only last year combining "cool design with pure pleasure" targeting the 20-45 age group with the promise of "chilling-out in style".

Small Luxury Hotels of the World only admits hotels with unique design, character and charm. POHO director, Mr Philipp Musshafen, said, "To be part of one of the best hotel groups in the world is a dream start and confirmation we are on the right track.”

 The hotel’s lakeside promenade offers stunning alpine views of the so-called “Riviera of Central Switzerland”, with chestnut trees, palms and orchids adding to its Mediterranean flair.

POHO offers 45 rooms which integrate high-tech items such as flat-screen TVs, Play Station 3s and GenevaLab sound systems.

POHO’s dining options range from pasta in every imaginable and unimaginable variety, plus off-bat tapas, in the avant-garde POHO Dining Lounge. Rustic, down-to-earth and authentically Swiss hearty fare from bratwurst to bauernrösti is on the menu at the Weggiser Stübli restaurant and bar. Sharing its historic 100-year-old ancestral gallery, with original Dutch stone walls, POHO Wine Cellar run by cellarmasters Bretscher & Jud houses over 500 wines.

At the hotel, a unique POHO Wellness World features a mystical black swimming pool with sensuous underwater photos by New York artist Howard Schatz, sauna, steam bath, solarium and gym with the newest 'technogym' equipment and endurance appliances, such as the Cardio Wave, Galileo and Kinesis.

While The POHO Lakeside Center is the ultimate outlet for water sports enthusiasts in summer, from waterskiing to wakeboarding, there is also a Lido / indoor swimming pool for year-round bathing.

The adventurous can also go para-gliding, nordic walking or explore a rope park of 2.5 kms. When the snow falls, the resort is a base for winter sports. In the summer, the Lakeside Terrace is at the centre of social life.

The new POHO was born from the old Post Hotel Weggis and former Weggis Casino, with a modern facelift to architecture from the former 80s, in tones of white, yellow and ocher refreshed with blue and turquoise balconies. By night the façade radiates contemporary urban light.

POHO is only an hour's drive from Zurich and sister hotel to one of Europe’s leading luxury hotels, Park Hotel Weggis.
