We were recently guests at the five-star Lenkerhof Gourmet Spa Resort in the Bernese Oberland. I can tell you one thing in advance: all gourmets and wellness lovers among you will definitely be thrilled with a stay at the Lenkerhof. It offers the perfect combination of relaxation and enjoyment. I would be happy to tell you more about our stay.
The Lenkerhof Gourmet Spa Resort
The Lenkerhof Hotel looks back on a unique history of 350 years, when the tradition began with the hotel’s own Balmen spring. Lenker spring water was already synonymous with relaxation and well-being in those days. Today, the Lenkerhof offers 83 individually furnished rooms. The warm welcome and the hotel’s own welcome drink ensure a holiday feeling from the very first minute.
Whether you want to hike through the Bernese Oberland in summer, visit the Simmen Falls in Lenk on your bike or spend some leisurely time by the pool, the Lenkerhof offers the perfect starting points. In winter, you can take advantage of the numerous snow sports on offer, and the Lenk-Stoss ski lift is located almost directly next to the hotel.
The individual rooms ensure cosiness and the balcony convinces with a wonderful view of the Wildstrubel massif. We were allowed to stay in the premium double room. The bright and spacious double room offered a rain shower, comfortable box-spring beds, a cosy sitting area with sofa and TV as well as a Nespresso coffee machine.
I really liked the warm colours of the room and the carefully selected materials and details. The comfortable box-spring bed ensured a restful night’s sleep. We were even greeted with a small culinary treat.
Wellness at the 7sources beauty & spa
The wellness area of the Lenkerhof covers 2’000 square metres. The name “7sources” comes from the 7 springs, the so-called “Siebenbrunnen”, which form the source of the Simme and rise above the Simmen Falls on the massif of the Wildstrubel.
The wellness area offers seven saunas and experiences: Sulphur grotto, Finnish sauna, herbal sauna, bio sauna, ice grotto, stone oil sauna as well as steam bath. This is how relaxation works, I personally found the herbal sauna wonderfully invigorating. For even more relaxation, there is an indoor and an outdoor pool. There is even a water slide for the children. And those who like to work out can do so in the hotel’s own gym.
The name Lenkerhof Gourmet Spa Resort clearly says it all. I therefore recommend booking a Gourmet Package at the same time in order to benefit from the culinary variety at the Lenkerhof. With this package, hotel guests can choose from the hotel’s own restaurants. In the Spettacolo restaurant, guests can choose five courses from 15 dishes every evening. At the Oh de Vie restaurant, guests can choose from four dishes on the evening menu, and at the Bühlberg mountain restaurant, there is a free choice of four dishes.
We enjoyed our dinners in the Spettacolo restaurant and were absolutely thrilled by the unique dishes. Which was by far not “only” a feast for the palate, but also for the eyes. Every evening, there was a choice of 15 dishes, including creations with fish, meat and vegetarian dishes.
I also started the day well in the Spettacolo restaurant with a rich and varied breakfast buffet with regional and international delicacies.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Lenkerhof Gourmet Spa Resort once again for their hospitality.
