Lakeside luxury in the heart of the city, with a Michelin-starred restaurant and Alps views
Empress "Sissi" of Austria died here, Czechoslovakia was signed into existence (for a time) here, and Sotheby's auctioned the jewels of the Duchess of Windsor here. History seeps out of every corner of this landmark, which has been in the same family since it opened in 1865. But its legendary past and the Grand Hotel décor of the public areas and 90 rooms isn't all the Beau-Rivage has going for it; it also has the Michelin-starred contemporary French restaurant Chat-Botté, Patara for fine Thai dining, a prime location on the banks of Lake Geneva and gorgeous views from the terrace and balconies.
In the Area
The hotel is within walking distance of the UN's Palais des Nations, the historic town center, the English Garden park and the shopping paradise of the Rue de Rhône, but the main center of activity for Beau-Rivage is Lake Geneva right out front. From there guests can sail, water-ski, fish, row, windsurf, swim or sit back and enjoy a lake tour. At night, a short stroll leads to several celebrated restaurants including Bistrot Du Boeuf Rouge; and an even shorter one, just off the lobby, leads to the Atrium bar, which has live music in the evenings.
