One of the oldest hotels in Gstaad, Le Grand Bellevue, is becoming increasingly successful. The Grand Bellevue was named "Best Swiss Hotel of the Year" by Sonntagszeitung and attracts tennis fans every summer for the EFG Swiss Open Gstaad. Known as the Wimbledon of the Alps, the competition has been bringing together the tennis elite for over 100 years.

The 5-star superior hotel, built in 1912 and located in the heart of the village, has 57 rooms. The Grand Bellevue was acquired in the year of its centenary by a young visionary couple, Daniel and Davia Koetser. Since then, it has undergone a major renovation. In addition, Le Grand Bellevue recently unveiled expansion plans for five exclusive residences, as well as twenty-eight Suites in three new connected chalets. The hotel's restaurant, LEONARD's, was also recently awarded 16 points by Gault & Millau Switzerland.

The Grand Bellevue opens its doors for the summer season on 10 June until 2 October, offering a range of seasonal activities that go well beyond tennis. Gstaad's sporting events, such as the Swatch Beach Volleyball Major, the Glacier 3000 Run or the Hublot Polo Club Gold are among the most exciting gatherings in the country. In addition, for music lovers, the 66th Gstaad Menuhin Festival will offer the finest classical music, including no less than fifteen concerts dedicated to Beethoven, with highlights including "a Missa solemnis offered on two consecutive evenings as an opening concert and a concert performance of the opera Fidelio starring tenor Jonas Kaufmann", according to the official 2022 programme. In September, country music will be heard from afar, as Country Night will attract the biggest stars of the country music scene.
