Kempinski Palace Engelberg general manager Andreas Magnus said: “The urge for beautiful and high-class retreats has never been felt so much needed as now.

“Escaping from our frantic lifestyles has become crucial and we are very much looking forward to offering our guests a place to unwind and restore balance of both mind and body in a luxurious setting.

“Crafting bespoke experiences for people with impeccable taste and creating a remarkable sense of place is part of our Kempinski DNA.”
