THE GSTAAD PALACE SPA INTRODUCES 100% ORGANIC SKINCARE AND EXCLUSIVE TREATMENTS FROM JARDIN DES MONTS
Here’s a fantasy for a winter day. Imagine you’re in Switzerland. At the uber-chic Gstad Palace in uber-chic Gstad.
Well, if you can afford it, the resort’s Palace Spa is tapping into healing fashioned high in the Swiss Alps with the introduction of 100% organic skincare from Jardin des Monts.
The new products provide locally sourced therapeutic relief from the ravages of brilliant sun and dry air at high mountain altitudes for guests of the refined hotel in the most charming chalet village in the Bernese Oberland.
Set in a Swiss chalet not far from Gstaad Palace, Jardin des Monts tends its own Alpine garden, first planted back in 1845. Reachable only by foot, the garden blooms with more than 30 herbs and plants such as lemon thyme, Moroccan mint, lemon balm, echinacea, bergamot, lavender and edelweiss – to name a few.
