Due to the current pandemic, people haven’t been able to get out of their houses much. The social distancing restrictions have been pretty rough on everyone. Fortunately, there is a way to make the current shelter-in-place restrictions work to your benefit, by booking yourself a long stay at a luxury hotel. Just recently, Swiss hospitality company Le Bijou announced what they describe as their “COVID-19 Service.” The customizable package offers optional add-ons like round-the-clock nurse care, personal doctor visits, and in-room coronavirus testing services. The package is perfect for anyone who wants a top-notch quality hotel experience in Switzerland, without compromising their health in any way.
It was a logical move for the Swiss hotel to commence a Cornonavirus-friendly package. After all, Le Bijou prides itself on being one of a growing number of hospitality chains to offer fully automated hotel units. And they make that pretty clear when you begin your booking process; their slogan is “Hotel service, without the other people.” Automated rooms mean that guests have no need to interact with anyone during their stay, including check-in. There are no staff members at Le Bijou, apart from cleaners. Instead, guests have access to a private app along with a remote 24-hour concierge service where they can order a personal chef, groceries, massages, and cabs.

Le Bijou co-founder Alexander Hubner dubbed their hotel units “luxury Airbnbs.” This is a pretty accurate description, as each of their units includes special luxury amenities like fireplaces, private gyms, jacuzzis, saunas. The rooms also come with a full-service kitchen so that guests can have their choice of gourmet meals. The price of a stay a Le Bijou is pretty hefty, especially an extended stay that includes their latest health-centered package. A 14-day stay could cost around $77,500. The luxury chain has 42 properties which are dispersed across several Swiss cities.
