    Our opinion

    The Hotel Beau Rivage Geneva is an incredibly sumptuous hotel, made for those with refined tastes.

    Hotel description

    In the heart of Geneva, the five star Hotel Beau Rivage possesses an enviable waterside position and offers a slice of luxury in this world-renowned city. The grand palatial exterior is coloured a sophisticated combination of soft grey and white. Boxes of blue flowers sit beneath the windows on French balconies, and clusters of trees on either side add to the beauty of the property. Enter the hotel and take in the glory of the Atrium. Heavily inspired by Roman design, marble pillars support the ceiling, which is left open in the middle to let light pour down past the bannisters of the several landings from the top square window. Satin armchairs in a luxurious purple define this comfortable and elegant place to relax in the morning, accompanied by the trickling of the central water fountain. Ascend the grand staircases to the first landing, trailed by purple carpets all around, with the additions of ornate side-tables lit by gold lamps and antique cabinets which establish the welcoming feel of a charming stately home. The guestrooms continue this feel, with an abundance of comfortable soft furnishings, as well as rich, thick curtains, and bed throws, all of which are designed in light, fresh colours, such as duck egg blue, light fuchsia, and lilac. The high ceilings carry delicate chandeliers of glass or gold, and artistically arranged vases of flowers decorate the corners of the rooms, complimenting the simple wall panelling, the frescoes, and the artwork. Guests spend their nights here basking in the exclusive, captivating elegance of these private spaces. Through the windows, guests can admire views across the rooftops of the city itself, the relaxed flow of the streets, or Geneva’s most iconic monument: the Jet d’Eau. In the evenings, dine in one of the hotel’s culinary options. The most prestigious of the Hotel Beau Rivage’s restaurants is Le Chat-Botte, managed by Michelin-starred Chef Dominique Gauthier. Housed within the hotel’s wine cellar, the restaurant follows a Mediterranean colour scheme that is as lively, yet refined, as the flavours of the food. This is the ideal venue in which to spend your final night in Geneva, perhaps on the exclusive Chef’s table. Alternatively, the Patara Fine Thai Cuisine Restaurant offers an eclectic, vibrant palate of Thai food, served in an equally exotic dining room. Guests here can enjoy a varied and authentic range of dishes, with captivating spices, aromas, and combinations. After dinner, take a digestif on the terrace, or in the Atrium Bar. The Hotel Beau Rivage is a grand and enchanting palace hotel that provides five star luxury to those looking to spend a few nights in Geneva as part of a tailor-made touring holiday around Switzerland. We would highly recommend it to clients putting together a tour comprising four and five star properties.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    Geneva is a haven for cultural exploration, as well as retail therapy and culinary delights. Workshops, boutiques, and museums all provide an insight into Geneva’s cultural history and the watch-making that it is so well-known for. The Jet d’Eau fountain, as well as being a key landmark, once provided the workshops throughout Geneva with power. For a further taste of cultural history, take a guided tour of the Palais des Nations, the European Headquarters of the UN, or admire the architecture of the Vieille-Villa. The St Pierre Cathedral has 157 steps leading up to the top of its tower. Many contemporary art museums are situated in the Quartier des Bains, and, dotted across the city, are four world-exclusive museums: the Red Cross and Red Crescent, Le Musee International de la Reforme, the Patek Philippe Museum, and the Bodmer Foundation Library and Museum.
