There was one occasion when a guest wanted to surprise his wife for her birthday… and what better way to wow your partner than having an elephant deliver her present in the hotel lobby? It sounds absolutely out-of-this-world crazy, but it really did happen! The elephant was fetched from a nearby travelling circus to Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, where the lady in question had a truly unforgettable birthday surprise. And that’s not all. Once, to make a pool party more interesting, Badrutt’s Palace Hotel swimming pool was populated by sea lions. The effect was absolutely staggering, although the clean-up took much longer than the aftermath of a usual get-together!
New Year’s Eve
And if all this seems incredible, Badrutt’s Palace Hotel really pulls out all the stops once a year, namely on New Year’s Eve. Each year, the party has a different theme, transforming the hotel into a giant playground for adults and kids alike. In 2015, Badrutt’s Palace turned itself into the land of the rising sun, home to a beautiful princess who lived with her powerful sultan in their magical palace Badrutt. The theme was ‘A Thousand and One Nights’ and it was a roaring success… Favourite tales like Sindbad the Sailor, Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves all came alive once again for an extra special night in Badrutt’s Palace Hotel.
The year before that, the hotel metamorphosed into ‘Château Badrutt’, a fairytale world of dreams, legends and fantasies. Rooms were adorned with regalia and coats of arms, giant illuminated manuscripts, flag parades, trumpets and chandeliers to convey the atmosphere of the everlasting medieval legends of dames and knights.
You can probably tell that Badrutt’s Palace Hotel absolutely dazzles its guests with a different New Year’s Eve Party each year… If you’re curious about what’s in store for this year, the theme will be announced soon – so stay tuned.
The sky’s the limit
It goes without saying that private parties can also be tailored to the guest’s every need, making every celebration, from birthdays to weddings and everything in between, utterly unique and special. Say, for instance, that you fancy a barbecue party in the middle of winter. For Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, that’s absolutely no problem at all. Past requests that have been fulfilled include an indoor BBQ, with a real green lawn on the floor for a more authentic feel. After all, Badrutt’s Palace Hotel’s philosophy “nothing is too big for us” applies, of course, to parties too: all you have to do is imagine the scene, and the Badrutt’s team will take care of the rest.
