The hotel was originally constructed as a "golf hotel" in Schönried.
The name was changed to "Hotel ERMITAGE Golf".
Hoteliers Heiner Lutz and Laurenz Schmid bought the Hotel ERMITAGE Golf.
The first indoor-and-open-air salt-water pool was opened in Switzerland at 1,200m above sea level.
The hotel was extended around the salt-water bathhouse with 37 new bedrooms and suites.
The main building, with 39 bedrooms and junior suites, was officially opened along with a sauna park with three different saunas.
Official opening of the spa area "Vitalità" with treatment rooms for massages, facials and body treatments as well as a fitness room.
Further rooms were added to Vitalità for special treatments: Rasul bath, Golden Nostalgia and Hamam.
The fitness room was extended and the Vitalità area was extended once again with additional treatment rooms and a new changing room.
Official opening of the large outdoor sports pool and the new lounging area. An additional floor was added to the salt-water bathhouse in addition to 15 new bedrooms and suites.
Vitalità was expanded again to include a spacious new reception with sitting area, an "Alpienne" room, additional massage rooms and an air-conditioned exercise room.
The new building project was commenced with the excavation of the new "Résidence" quarters.
From March, the hotel was closed for eight months for the biggest expansion and extension project in hotel history. The two new quarters of "Saanen" and "Résidence" are up and running.
On the 21st of December, the hotel opened its doors once more under the name: "Wellness & Spa Hotel ERMITAGE". Guests now have at their disposal: 3,500 m² of wellness, 7 new restaurant parlours, spacious new suites, as well as the Panorama Hall with its magical view of the mountains.
The ERMITAGE Wellness & Spa Hotel was sold to Heiner Lutz's brother, Jürg Lutz, and his sons Julian and Ambros.
On 29 May, after a two-months pause for renovation and expansion work, the hotel will open a new and improved 3,700 m² Wellness Oasis, new indoor-outdoor SOLBAD salt-water pool, cosy Cheminée Lounge, Thai-style quiet & relaxation room, new smoothie bar and a modern fitness centre.
