Clinique La Prairie
Clinique La Prairie first opened its doors in 1931 as an innovative medical retreat that combined the cutting-edge science of cell therapy with holistic wellness. Even at the very start, the exclusive retreat prided itself on honouring the traditions of luxury Swiss hospitality. Since then, Clinique La Prairie has continued to be a world leader in medical wellbeing, offering a unique and beneficial experience to many generations of international guests.
The medical spa, with its collection of both high-tech and traditional therapies, provides a unique escape and offers its guests the rare opportunity to relax and unwind. With sweeping views over the Swiss Alps and clear waters of Lake Geneva, the spa offers a retreat within a retreat: a beautiful, sensory space for every guest to enjoy.
Since the very beginning, diet and nutrition have supported Clinique La Prairie’s approach to health and wellbeing. The team of expert nutritionists provide personalized education for all the retreat’s guests and can offer tailored advice, while the clinic’s menu supplies a variety of internationally-inspired dishes and desserts.
Originally built in the 19th Century, the recently renovated Château welcomes guests with an immediate luxurious, light-filled interior. The Château, which comprises 14 individual rooms and suites, is completed with terraces that provide a stunning view of the breath-taking Swiss Alps and the shores of Lake Léman.
The original home where Professor Niehans completed his scientific research on cellular therapy, La Résidence has the biggest history of any of the clinic’s rooms. Comprising nine rooms and suites, each offering traditional Swiss architecture and design, it’s undeniable that the accommodation provides incredible views of manicured private gardens and the Lake Léman.
Clinique La Prairie’s Medical Center was built in 1991 and features a contemporary architectural design. The twenty rooms and six suites are equipped with world-class medical technology and intended to enable hospitalized guests to fully recover without compromising on comfort. Set in the higher floors of the medical centre, the rooms have also been developed to overlook the lake and Swiss Alps.
