A place to connect to nature, make time for yourself and the things that matter

Imagined by the global architecture firm BIG | Bjarke Ingels Group designed Hôtel des Horlogers for architecture and nature to be one, complying with Minergie Eco Standards. Thanks to an avant-garde concept, visitors are immediately immersed in the natural environment of the Vallée de Joux, one of the cradles of Swiss complicated watches. BIG conceived the hotel so that all the rooms would offer a breath-taking view over the Risoud forest. Departing from the usual codes of hotel architecture, the building consists of slabs descending towards the valley and tilting slightly to embrace the topography while creating a continuous path into nature.

Inside AU*M breaks down boundaries, allowing harmony to arise between architecture and nature. The interior concept is inspired by a walk through the Risoud forest. An interior passageway follows the hotel’s atypical zigzagging structure and connects the 50 rooms, varying into different categories, from the Valley Guest Room to the Signature Suite. The hotel also encompasses two restaurants and a bar open to everybody, wellness area with two treatment rooms, a hammam, a sauna, a relaxation space, one sensory shower and a fitness room  as well as three seminar rooms. The two restaurants take their guests on an exclusive culinary journey and impress with the use of local products and ingredients, enhanced by a selection of regional wines as well as locally brewed beers. In addition, the hotel has its own fruit and vegetable garden. 

As a meeting place for locals, mindful travellers in search of the power of nature, watch, architecture and food lovers, Hotel des Horlogers invites visitors to connect with nature, make time for yourself and the things that matter. Its sustainable approach encompasses local partnerships to reduce its carbon footprint, support local communities and participate in the region’s economy.

Rooms and Suites
