The superb 1865 former Beau-Rivage private house is located in the heart of Geneva, on the lakeside, with panoramic views of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc. Conveniently located for work or leisure, Beau-Rivage is just a stroll away from the shopping and business districts.
A member of The Leading Hotels of the World and Swiss Deluxe Hotels, Beau-Rivage Geneve, like its sister fice-star properties in Neuchâtel and Lausanne, is independently owned by the Mayer family. Currently in their fifth generation, this family is expert in luxury hospitality and still welcome guests personally upon arrival.
Designed by the celebrated British interior architect Leila Corbett Elwes, each of the 91 rooms has its own character with no two pieces of furniture the same. The Select Suites, named after notable historic guests, all have private balconies overlooking the lake, Old Town or Geneva harbour. After painstaking renovation the Mayers have created a hotel that feels more like a home, albeit a grandiose home, with marble columns, a large fountain in the lobby entranceway, New Orleans style balconies on each floor and a luxurious spa and wellness center.
A destination for in-the-know foodies, the Beau-Rivage boasts one of the most exciting culinary talents in Switzerland. Dominique Gauthier's one-Michelin-star restaurant, Le Chat Botté, serves modern French cuisine, including a menu prepared personally by the chef himself at the private eight-person chef’s table. By contrast, for Le Patara offers authentic upscale Thai cuisine.
Evening aperitifs are served in The Atrium Bar, or on the beautiful terrace of Beau-Rivage, with its breath-taking view of the Lake. Relax with a cocktail in hand and enjoy the nightly live piano music.
