This beautiful four-star hotel located in the heart of Montreux, on the shores of Lake Geneva, was built in 1907 in a Belle Epoque style.


Composed of three types of rooms and suites (Deluxe, junior suite and standard room), a bar/restaurant (Les Magnolias), 3 conference/seminar rooms, a spa & wellness area and a fitness area, this hotel in the heart of Montreux offers a magnificent view of the pearl of the Swiss Riviera and the Alps and Lake Geneva.



The objective of our collaboration with the Excelsior Hotel in Montreux was to take photos and videos to present the hotel and visually enrich the website whose redesign was managed by our communication agency as well as the hotel’s social networks.


The project consisted of different stages and shootings. During one day of shooting, our team took both indoor and outdoor shots. Our team preferred the morning for outdoor shots, to enjoy the light, with in particular our drone for shots of the hotel and the nature that surrounds it, with the lake and mountains. It was the indoor shots of the hotel’s various spaces that completed the shooting. The reception, the rooms, the spa and fitness area, the seminar rooms and the restaurant for gourmet photos, our photographers were able to shoot the different spaces available for guests within this hotel.

Finally, it was the production of a video that finalized this project, also presenting the different spaces of the hotel by following the arrival of a guest at the hotel, from the reception desk with the recovery of the key to the room. This video combining shots of the hotel’s different spaces is used on the website to present and promote the hotel.


A word from the photographer:

“It’s a pleasure to work in a place with a beautiful setting like the Excelsior.”
