he Oetker Collection comprises of a selection of world-renowned luxury five-star hotels, all managed by professional hoteliers.
Officially established in 2008, when the hotel collection was formalised under The Oetker brand, it actually dates back to the 1870s when Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa first opened its doors. The Oetker family purchased the Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa in 1923, igniting their love affair with, and acquisition of, magnificent hotels in spectacular locations.
Currently, The Oetker Collection consists of nine stunning Masterpiece Hotels and more than 150 private villas and estates around the world, including in France, England, Geneva, Italy, Brazil and The West Indies. Each stunning property is unique and iconic with its own timeless features, varied architectural style, design and décor, from impressive châteaux and grand city mansions to secluded mountainous and island retreats.
However, despite each hotel being unique, what’s common throughout The Oetker Collection is the beautifully appointed accommodation, fine dining and first-class service, with many of their hotels included in the exclusive ‘The Leading Hotels of the World’ collection.
