Since its launch in mid-2022, FIVE Zurich has steadily built a reputation for its luxuriously expressive architecture and attitude to comfort as well as its unique approach to food and entertainment venues. Now, with the recent addition of their East Wing and Amazing Rooms, and their laudable achievement of LEED Platinum certification for sustainability, FIVE Zurich further attracts youthful, climate-aware, travellers in with their contemporary approach to guest care.
e so-called “Amazing Rooms” found in the new East Wing of FIVE Zurich present travellers with a unique opportunity to benefit from modern comforts with numerous spaces for socialising and play. The 62 lifestyle rooms offer all guests access to the Hotel’s 5-star amenities and services, including the luxurious ReFIVE spa with an indoor pool and hot tub as well as a top-of-the-line gym. Each Amazing Room includes a King-sized bed, luxurious rain shower, and a 55-inch SmartTV for the days you just want some decadent escapism. The new space comes with ease of access to the new games room (complete with pool table, ping pong, and classic arcade games); a conveniently located café with a coffee station, snacks, and sandwiches – a good spot to work from; and a unique sensorial tunnel with eye-catching light installations connecting the East Wing to the main complex.
For Markus Rapatz, General Manager, FIVE Zurich, the East Wing was designed with lifestyle in mind, “As a trailblazing hospitality brand, FIVE is consistently crafting experiences to enhance the Vibe at FIVE – and the new ‘Amazing Rooms’ at FIVE Zurich are a testimony to FIVE’s commitment to curating bespoke best-in-class guest services. These sophisticated rooms offer guests a FIVE-styled environment in which to work, relax, and meet and mingle – all at the same time.”
FIVE Zurich has much to offer travellers looking for culinary variety and adventure without compromising on fine-dining delights, dietary restrictions, or the ability to socialise with friends without restriction.
All of the dining destinations FIVE Zurich, are styled with a carefully tailored focus on youthfulness and the importance of unique identity and context for successful immersive experiential moments. For FIVE Zurich, it is not only about the food; instead, the food is only exceedingly complimentary to the spaces created for burgeoning joy. FIVE Zurich is where vibrant glamour at contemporary gourmet Chinese dining restaurant Maiden Shanghai (which has been recognised by the prestigious Gault&Millau) may be found alongside graffiti wall art at Soul Food meets Street Art restaurant Soul St. which is nestled below the unabashed glamour of The Penthouse bar restaurant and club that is perfect for dancing the night away, guests are greeted with an immediate sense of familiarity but also an energetic embrace of belonging and “coolness”.
FIVE Zurich venues are not for the staid and buttoned up; they are for the young-at-heart who look for spaces of inspiration. At the very entrance, before stepping into the trendy Tune In lounge, guests are greeted by striking floor-to-ceiling murals of Mohammed Ali, Elton John and Rihanna – that reflect the rich legacy of guests at the hotel.
FIVE Zurich ensures luxury without sacrificing sustainability-focused approaches to hospitality. With an ever-shifting landscape created through the devastating consequences of climate change, it is heartening to recognise unique efforts to prevent further damage to our environment coming from established industries. With this in mind and to mitigate their own environmental impact, FIVE Zurich has made substantial changes to their construction needs, infrastructure, and resource usage; an initiative recognized by the acclaimed Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system. The LEED system is the world’s most widely used sustainability-focused green building rating system. Since its inception, over 100 000 buildings worldwide have received the rating, but few have achieved Platinum certification for BD+C and ID+C; FIVE Zurich is the only hotel in Switzerland. Further, the hotel’s laudable 84 points also make it the third-highest rating according to property size under LEED v4.
LEED-certified buildings are proven to use, on average, 25% less energy and 11% less water than non-greened structures. They experience 19% lower maintenance costs and 27% higher occupancy satisfaction, largely due to the creation of healthier spaces for guests to stay and work in.
FIVE Zurich’s Swiss-sophisticated sustainability approach has not compromised on expansion or luxury, as seen with their East Wing’s Amazing Rooms and the extravagant gourmet dining and entertainment options on offer.
