Throughout their lives, the entrepreneurial couple have been committed to their values of "commitment, responsibility and meaning" - both professionally and privately. With enthusiasm, untiring commitment and support from his wife Rhéane, Felix Suhner has built up the small hotel group over the last few years. After 20 years in the operations, the graduate hotelier and trained chef decided to shift his tasks to the development of the hotel group. Together with his wife and the team of the Balance Familie, additional values for guests and hotels are created true to the vision of "living the good". Their passion is hotel architecture and the design of wellness oases. In their spare time, they find ideas for new concepts together with their two children at international trade fairs and in the hottest hotels at home and abroad.
Our values determine our actions and guide us in our everyday lives. Our values commit us to accepting our responsibility and direct our daily work clearly and unambiguously. Our values say what we stand for, what we represent and how we want to be perceived. Whatever we do, we do it focused on our three core values - committed, responsible, meaningful.
Our maxims show us how we should behave - and work - in everyday life. Our brand, our identity is experienced and perceived primarily in direct contact with people. This creates an image in the other person; an idea of what the Balance Familie is and embodies. That is why we have formulated binding guiding principles for our behaviour, which consist of three supporting pillars: Yes-philosophy (committed), clear leadership (responsible) and harmony (meaningful).
1641 The "Baselbieter Rütli" Bad Bubendorf was first mentioned on 20 April 1641 in a Basel official letter to the bailiff Jakob Zörnlein in Waldenburg.
1741 Exactly 100 years later, Hans Jakob Rudin builds a wooden bathing hut. In 1742 Antonia Katharina Heuslerin bought the bath, built a stone house around it and applied for a licence.
1763 Due to foundation damage, the main building had to be demolished in 1770. It was replaced in 1763/74 by a 3-storey new building under the then owner, David-La Roche.
1804 During a period of about forty years all news about the bath are missing. On 21 March 1804, Mathias Flubacher bought the Sonne in Läufelfingen, the entire possession and righteous of the Bath zu Bubendorf including inventory for 23,000 pounds. And he had the existing buildings extended.
1830 On November 20, 1830, a meeting took place in the open air in the Bubendorf bath, which was attended by several hundred patriotic peasants and had the purpose of demanding equal rights between city and country citizens with a petition.
1837 im 1837 still brine baths were furnished, but some decades later the bath enterprise was stopped.
1979 In 1977 Rudolf Huber-Krattiger (called dr Bärtli-Huber) acquired the Bad Bubendorf and in the years 1979-1981 had it developed into a modern restaurant and hotel. At the same time the Lukarnen were reconstructed. After all this reconstruction work, all the buildings were placed under a preservation order.
1999 At the end of 1998 Bärtli-Huber sold his Bad to the two gastronomy specialists Roland Tischhauser and Felix Suhner.
2007 Bad Bubendorf receives an extension, which differs externally strongly from the historical building, which is under monument protection. The modern new building contains variably usable seminar rooms, a noble Italian restaurant, a trendy bar-lounge area, 26 hotel rooms, two premium spa suites with whirlpool and sauna as well as a beauty and fitness room.
