Journey to another universe at this extraordinary hotel
Remember at Christmas catching a glimpse of that huge gift under the tree and reading your name on the tag? That’s the feeling I had walking down Kameha Grand Zurich’s dimly-lit corridor and seeing my bedroom door: huge, silver and reading 2046 Space Suite.
Inside I stepped along a soft, silvery carpet, through a hallway twinkling with stars and into a murmuring room with a levitating bed. I'd just entered outer space. Well, almost. Kameha Grand Zurich’s Space Suite offers an experience as close as you’ll find anywhere. Designed by German photographer Michael Najjar (the first artist to have trained as an astronaut), this room leaves no space rock unturned with details running down to the finest margin. As well as the floating bed, silver seats, an astronaut’s glove emerging from the wall and carpets printed with Milky Way images, you’ll encounter delightful details. The light options range from moonlight to starlight, spotlights clustered on the ceiling resemble rocket engines and no windows give the feeling of utter solitude and zero gravity.
Each guest receives a personalized log-in card and can spend the evening watching a selection of intergalactic movies on the curved plasma or reading the selection of space literature. Before you go, remember to add your details to the log book. Other themed rooms at the Kameha Grand Zurich range from a Gentlemen’s Suite with a roulette table and rotating TV to a sultry Burlesque Suite ideal for a romantic break.
