Set on the shores of Lake Geneva, in a magnificently landscaped 10-acre park, the exquisite, laid-back luxury of La Reserve hotel makes it one of the finest places from which to explore this stunning part of Switzerland.
Designed with the inspiration of an African lodge, in the shadow of the Swiss Alps, Michel Reybier’s 5-star hotel and spa was created with the vision of Parisian interior designer Jacques Garcia, with spaces that echo the rich culture of Africa, and the dramatic splendour of its landscape.
With each of the 29 suites and 73 rooms opening out onto the beautiful gardens of La Reserve, oiled oak flooring, leather topped desks and sumptuous velvet armchairs offset vast beds dressed in the finest Egyptian cottons and linens, creating an elegant space in which to relax and retreat.
Refined contemporary opulence is abound throughout, with marble mosaic and black granite bathrooms, while walls are adorned with original photos evoking the magic of historical expeditions to India and Africa.
Home to five spectacular restaurants, including its gourmet signature Le Loti, it’s internationally celebrated chef Frank Xu’s elevated interpretation of far eastern gastronomy at Tse Fung, one of the world’s most renowned Asian fine dining destinations, that made it the first Chinese restaurant in Switzerland to be awarded a Michelin star.
With the truly exceptional Nescens Spa offering state-of- the-art programmes, treatments and consultations based upon an innovative better-ageing approaches created by pioneers in cellular and preventative anti-ageing medicine, as well as a comprehensive repertoire of luxurious beauty treatments, rejuvenation and total relaxation is nothing but inevitable.
