We have now stayed at the Beatus four times since last summer and have more stays reserved. Our first time there was last August which we enjoyed so much we booked for October. Then that led to several days there in late January/early February and we were then back in late April. So - summer, autumn, winter and spring at the Beatus on lake Thun and we could not have found a nicer, more relaxing, place to be. There is plenty to see and do in the Oberland but if you do not want to travel around there are many activities right at the hotel: swimming, saunas etc and a full programme - many things each day - of sports related activities like yoga, aqua gym, stretching classes plus short trips out on the lake in one of their boats. There are also hiking excursions with transport included from the hotel and back. We think of our time there as a cruise - but on land! The food is wonderful, service terrific and the whole atmosphere totally relaxing. We can't recommend the hotel highly enough and we can't wait to get back for our next stay!

We stayed 3 nights in this beautiful, peaceful and relaxing hotel, embrassing the amazing Merligen beach landscape... Both the room and the service within the whole hotel were really first class, special price to our waiter ‘Magic’ Mike, who made the impossible possible every single night for us! 🙏😊😉 We can only recommend this place and will definitely be back one day soon!

Just spent 4 nights at BEATUS wellness and spa resort in Merligen at the Lake of Thun. The location is great with a perfect lake view. Great wellness facilities (incl. a 35 degree celsius outside saltwater pool). Food was awesome and staff made a fantastic job - we will be back soon again.

Thanks to Canswiss and his review we stayed at the Beatus for 4 nights in August. The hotel surpassed our expectations in every possible way. Our room (Junior Suite on the top floor) was modern with a fantastic shower (wish I could have brought it home!), well laid out, very quiet and had wonderful views across the lake to the Niesen and other mountains. We didn't have the best of weather while there but just watching the clouds coming over the lake was so relaxing. The hotel is right ON the lakefront with no road or path between it and the lake and the panoramic views are wonderful. The gardens are just breathtaking. Beautiful flowers and old trees all meticulously kept up - we saw two young women "deadheading" what seemed like thousands of plants which must be a really daunting task. It was a pleasure to walk around the gardens and just enjoy the flowers. We took the "3/4 Board" plan which included a full breakfast, a soup and salad lunch, little cakes at tea time and a 5 course dinner. All the meals were good although we never managed to eat all 5 courses at dinner. The service was more than excellent in all areas - thoughtful waiters (especially Til who is, apparently, a trainee), top-notch housekeeping and reception and spa staff who helped us plan our days and answered all our questions. In fact we were impressed with the entire staff, from the GM Sebastian Moser on down. A special vote of thanks goes to Sybille who runs the Reception for her help and kindness in getting our stay rescheduled at the last minute when my husband suddenly became ill. She could not have been kinder or more understanding. The spa is large, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. It is just a pleasure to visit. I had several spa treatments which were very professionally done. (Probably best to book those ahead because the spa is very popular). We loved the outdoor, salt water, 35° pool and its jets and "speed ring". We have stayed in hotels all over Switzerland in the last 50-something years and the Beatus tops them all. We are already booked for a stay this winter and hope to be back next summer for a week.

We visited the Beatus Merligen upon its re-opening after the Corona lockdown. Between my wife and I we have stayed here many times both together and apart, and we were both looking forward to the beautiful location on Lake Thun, the lovely spa, delicious food, and great hospitality,… but we also wished to support the hotel and its people as they re-opened in these difficult times. From the initial on-line investigations to our arrival and throughout our stay the hotel communication emphasised the new actions and guidelines in place to keep visitors safe and healthy. Arriving at the hotel there are a number of safety precautions taken at reception, everything you would expect (sanitiser, plastic shields, facemasks and gloves for staff), and all guidelines were explained as part of the check-in. Outside of this (and facemasks for all staff) the only significant changes we noticed were the on-line menu’s at the bar and restaurant (use your own smartphone – worked easily) and the breakfast buffet being changed to a “buffet with server” mode. Over our three days there the food was excellent, the cocktails were inspired (barrel aged Negroni!), and everything in the room was clean and perfect (and the view out across the lake is spectacular as always!!!). The Beatus is a lovely older hotel with some modern touches. Located directly on the lakefront with a wonderful garden and hotel-park it was a true haven for our (post-lockdown-ed) psyche’s. The fact that the weather was warm and sunny, and we could even take a (very) bracing swim in the lake after a hot sauna was a very large bonus. Throughout our stay we did notice some staff struggling a bit with facemasks, extra cleaning, and many small changes to their usual routines, and we do hope for them that current regulations will continue to relax (if and when appropriate). However, - without exception - everyone that we had contact with was gracious and hospitable, and all seemed happy to be back to work. Compared to previous stays (which were also lovely), this current trip was special due to the circumstances. The hotel direction and staff are clearly putting in the extra effort, and it shows. Additionally, the hotel (and more importantly the spa) was closed to external visitors (only for hotel guests at this time), so despite being fully booked the facilities never felt crowded, …raising the level of relaxation and the feeling of luxury even higher.
