Last winter the first European Hard Rock Hotel was unveiled, and being one of the coolest leisure groups in the world, Hard Rock didn’t mess about knocking up a new place but instead took over a historic building, complete with chapel, in central Davos.
Ideally located just off the resort’s main street and midway between the ski lifts and the various sectors of the huge Davos Klosters ski area, the Hard Rock Hotel oozes the kind of cool rock-star credibility for which the company is famous, perfectly blended with high-class Swiss quality. So essentially you can feel both rock-star cool and very, very comfortable at the same time. And then go skiing.
What’s unusual for Switzerland is that foreign buyers can actually purchase one of the hotel’s serviced apartments. The residences at the Hard Rock Hotel in Davos are a collection of 31 high-specification, one- and two-bedroom apartments, with the service levels and convenience of hotel living.
Buyers are able to benefit from VIP access to a suite of first-class amenities within the Hard Rock Hotel, from a spa, pool and gymnasium, to private dining or drinks at The 5th – the only rooftop bar and terrace in Davos with 360-degree views. Apartment owners also benefit from private parking and card access to the ski room.
The hotel’s exclusive 1000m2 Rock Spa®, the world’s first fully immersive music-centric spa, is a particularly unique facility. Utilising amplified vibrations, pressures and patterns as the foundation of its treatments, the groundbreaking experience takes guests on a rhythmic massage journey. Bass vibrations ripple through the massage table as treble beats come from above, sending pulses through the body and leaving guests feeling energised and invigorated.
Designed by world-renowned architect Woods Bagot, the spacious one- and two-bedroom residences are sleek and contemporary, combining Swiss quality and design with a Hard Rock twist, and range in size from 60m2 to 128m2. Residents can also enjoy a variety of exclusive perks and events – providing a modern-day opportunity to ‘live like a rock star’.
When you are not in residence, your apartment can be rented out via the hotel, providing a rental return estimated at around 5%. You may also be able to claim that some billionaire, prince or perhaps a lesser president has stayed at your place, as the residences commend a premium rental during the annual meeting of the world’s movers and shakers at the Davos World Economic Forum each January.
