Gstaad, Switzerland – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
The winter season is coming and one of Switzerland’s historic resorts, Gstaad Palace, is inviting travelers to take time and experience the new Chopard Luxury Journey package. The high-flying travel package combines a VIP tour of the luxury watchmaker Chopard with lavish accommodations at one of the last family-owned palace properties and convenient helicopter transfer between the two.
Located in the most exclusive chalet village in the Swiss Alps, Gstaad Palace has been a touchstone of Swiss hospitality since 1913. Beyond its famous ski trails, shopping, signature Hammam spa experience and its Champagne truffle fondue, the 5-star hotel has partnered with Chopard to offer guests an exclusive and timely experience to celebrate this year’s winter season.
Founded in 1860 in the small village of Sonvilier, Chopard is considered a benchmark of precision luxury watches. Its collections count elegant timepieces for gentlemen and ladies – such as the seasonally appropriate “Super Ice Cube” sporting 66 carats of diamonds and water resistance to 100 feet – as well as racing watches and tailor-made jewelry. A proud member of the Responsible Jewelry Council, the company is notable for redesigning the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or.
The new Chopard Luxury Journey from Gstaad Palace is an excellent adventure for the height of Swiss ski season, including four-night stay in a beautiful Double Deluxe Room with breathtaking view of the Swiss Alps, Swiss breakfast buffet and dinner at Le Grand Restaurant, a helicopter flight from Gstaad to Fleurier for a private guided VIP tour of Chopard Watches Manufacturer – guests can experience how Chopard time pieces are made followed by lunch and a return flight back to Gstaad, and use of the Palace Spa with indoor swimming pool saunas, steam baths and outdoor pool with Jacuzzi.
Package rates include half board and start from approximately $3,750 per person, based on double occupancy. The Chopard Luxury Journey Package is valid from December 16-20, 2012; January 13-February 6, 2013; and March 3-10, 2013.
