The exquisite Beau-Rivage hotel is ideally located on the shores of Lake Geneva and offers stunning views of the famous Jet d’Eau fountain and the snow-capped Alps in the distance. Upon entering the hotel lobby, guests will notice a beautiful fountain, armchairs and lush plants in a blue-and-white tiled courtyard. Built in 1865, Beau-Rivage is the last property in the area to remain within a single family, the Mayer family, for five generations, retaining the best of each era and remaining faithful to the hotel’s individual spirit over the years.
The Beau-Rivage includes many exclusive spaces, with each suite and room elegantly decorated, and all equipped with beautiful furniture, period lamps, rare trinkets, Clarins products and large bathtubs for ultimate relaxation. For an extra touch of luxury and comfort, stay in one of the duplex apartments, which include private spas bathed in daylight, exceptional mountain and lake views, plus cosy beds from which you can admire the night’s stars. The quiet grounds offer a peaceful sanctuary from the hum of the bustling city streets — a real retreat from the stresses of daily modern life.
One of the highlights of staying at the Beau-Rivage is the opportunity to dine at some of the finest gastronomic venues in the city. Guests can indulge at the one Michelin-star restaurant Le Chat-Botté, with its Mediterranean tones and atmosphere, and its innovative menu, carefully crafted by chef Dominique Gauthier. As an added bonus for wine aficionados, the restaurant’s cellar is one of the most extensive in Switzerland with many hidden treasures, all recommended by top sommeliers. For an unforgettable experience, dine at the Chef’s Table in the kitchens of Le Chat-Botté for a private, tailored meal.
The Bar offers an ideal haven with a calm, intimate ambience where there’s a wide selection of classic and creative cocktails, as well as fine meals, light snacks and afternoon tea with homemade cakes — to be enjoyed while reclining in deep armchairs. Patara is another dining choice within Beau Rivage; it offers a gentle distillation of exotic Thai flavours and aromas.
