Grand Resort Bad Ragaz launches their Presidential Suite
July 30, 2014: Grand Resort Bad Ragaz in Switzerland has recently launched their completed Presidential Suite which is quite the epitome of luxuriousness. The elegant, 300 square metre residence situated on the fifth floor of the Spa Suites building has two bedrooms, a spacious living room, a smokers’ lounge, a wine cabinet and a kitchen. From four balconies, guests can enjoy the views of the vineyards of the Bündner Herrschaft and gaze out over the Rhine Valley.
High-profile interior designer Claudio Carbone has incorporated customised ceiling lights and standard lamps made of Venetian Murano glass or decorated with Swarovski stones, marble floors with elaborate inlay work and rosewood furniture. Upon request, the Presidential Suite can be extended into the Presidential Floor, which spans 600 square metres and has a total of six bedrooms, each with its own separate bathroom, living area and balcony. The new suite is available from CHF 5,500 to CHF 8,000 (around EUR 4,500 to EUR 6,600) per night and the Presidential Floor from CHF 12,000 to CHF 16,000 (around EUR 9,900 to EUR 13,200).
Mr Carbone designed all the furniture for the luxury suite. In the entrance area, the guest is met by an elaborate beige Bianco Perlino marble intarsia floor and more than 30,000 glass crystals. Extravagant details, such as laser-engraved glass panels, lacquered rosewood panelling and large mother-of-pearl inlays in the dining table add the finishing touches to the exclusive interior.
The Venetian Murano glass baubles seem to float above the table, reminding guests of thermal water that is central to Grand Resort Bad Ragaz. In the dressing room, a chair upholstered with salmon leather is positioned below a Swarovski crystal ceiling, while the bathroom sparkles with gold dust in the wallpaper. The living room has an adjoining smokers’ lounge with a humidor and a temperate wine cabinet which is kept stocked by the team of six butlers working under Head Butler Andreas Karrasch.
The bedrooms are decorated with ray leather inlay work, chairs upholstered with salmon leather and silk carpets. The two bathrooms featuring Bianco Perlino marble are equipped with a sauna, a freestanding whirlpool bathtub and a steam bath. As in all rooms at the Spa Suites building, thermal water – which promotes health and wellbeing – flows from the taps. The high-tech equipment such as the Bang & Olufsen televisions and music system, the discreetly positioned screens and the lighting system and the blinds are all controlled via iPad.
