Mandarin Oriental, Geneva
A lakeside setting complements the striking designer beauty of this elegant luxury hotel.
The Mandarin Oriental, Geneva was the first hotel built in Europe following the end of World War II. Close to the city's cultural and cosmopolitan delights, this landmark enjoys a beautiful location at the far end of Lake Geneva. Elegant modern décor is used to create a soothing residential feel in the 189 guest rooms and suites. Offering stunning views overlooking the Rhône River and Mont-Blanc, the suites provide an ideal setting for upscale family and business stays. Particularly impressive is the Presidential Suite, which includes a large dining room, Jacuzzi, fireplace and stunning terrace gazing over the city and Mont Blanc. An eclectic dining scene sets this hotel apart. The dramatic Rasoi by Vineet serves gourmet Indian cuisine, while the wonderfully kitschy Le Chalet by Mandarin Oriental offers classic Swiss fare. With the hotel as your base, popular activities include cycling through the countryside, day-tripping to the Burgundy region of France, boating on the lake and horseback riding through the forests of Haute Savoie.
