The BEATUS Wellness & Spa Hotel features one of Switzerland’s largest and most magnificent hotel parks. Surrounded by hundred-year-old trees and gorgeous rose bushes, you are just steps away from the wonderfully refreshing shores of the lake. The rustle of the wind in the trees overhead will carry your cares away.

At the Hotel, immerse yourself in one of Switzerland’s most significant (2,000 m²) and most diverse wellness oases! Explore the unique outdoor salt-water pool and indoor sports pool. The sauna world features seven different saunas and steam baths, plus a relaxation room with waterbeds and a terrace, the "Café le Palmier" with Vital-Bar, and a fitness studio.

Hotel Beatus will spoil your pallet from dusk to dawn with a ¾ gourmet board. From the substantial breakfast buffet or bathrobe breakfast in the wellness world, to the Vitalità lunch, the "Blechchueche" afternoon cake spread, to gourmet dinner with a choice of menus... there is plenty here to nurture your appetite and your soul.

For those looking to get active. Hotel Belvedere have experienced guest-relations managers that know the Thunersee region and the Bernese Oberland like the backs of their hands. From Monday to Friday, they carefully put together a cultural, sports and excursion programme to suit all tastes and levels of ability.

Merligen lies on the serene Lake Thun, with the old town of Thun and its proud castle at one end, and Interlaken, with its glorious views of the Jungfrau, at the other. Lake steamers stopping close to the Hotel Beatus regularly visit all the charming lakeside villages, and provide a delightful way of exploring the area. Alternatively, a regular bus service links the lake resorts with Thun and Interlaken in just 30 minutes. Merligen is a peaceful village, with just a few shops and cafés. Gentle lakeside walks are well signposted, and further well-trodden paths take in sights such as the vineyards and castle at Oberhofen, and the picturesque villages of Faulensee and Beatenberg. Guests will be overwhelmed by the choice of day excursions: there is plenty to explore. See Interlaken for full details and for multi-centre options.

In Merligen you'll have a telephone service - if you want to know more about the area or have any queries give us a call.
