La Reserve Geneve Hotel & Spa
Plans to go to Switzerland? Join the wellness revolution, become a healthier version of yourself by investing in a wellness holiday. Now the question is which spa hotel to choose? The ultra-exclusive La Reserve Geneve Hotel & Spa, known as one of the world’s best luxury spas, is the ultimate spa stay to nourish your mind, body and soul in style.
Beautifully located on the shores of Lake Geneva, away from the hustle and bustle of posh Geneva, La Reserve Geneve Hotel & Spa is set in 10 acres. It’s only three miles from the town center and two miles from Geneva Airport.
How to sum up this lakeside luxury hotel in Switzerland? Well, apart from its seriously sublime spa, La Reserve Geneve Hotel & Spa offers serenity, great facilities, excellent service, fantastic food and chic accommodation. But, like the city of Geneva itself, it’s not a wallet-friendly place. La Reserve Geneve Hotel & Spa draws a diverse crowd: savvy spa-goers, Swiss luxury lovers, stylish couples and successful business moguls. Like sister-hotel La Reserve Ramatuelle in the South of France, this healthy hideaway is owned by Michel Reybier.
Good to know: As if you were in Venice, the elegant Venetian water taxi whisks you smoothly over the lake between the private harbour of La Reserve and Geneva city center. La Reserve Geneve’s private jetty is also available for tying up guests’ private boats. Travelling with kids in tow? La Petite Reserve is a no-go zone for parents – a wonderful playground for kids.
Inspired by an African nature reserve, the interior with its leopard-print carpeting and wildlife artworks, was designed by Jacques Garcia of Hotel Costes fame. La Reserve Geneve Hotel & Spa boasts 85 rooms & 17 suites, all elegantly styled. Featuring terraces or balconies, the sumptuously rich & luxurious rooms and suites provide comfort & calmness. There’s a complimentary mini-bar, a choice of pillows and luxury natural materials. When we stayed here, we were spoiled with a chocolate cake. So yummy!
La Reserve Geneve Hotel & Spa is home to five restaurants. The Asian Tse Fung Restaurant, serving the signature duck, is our favorite choice. Here, its décor is dominated by red velvet, black lacquer and silk. During summertime, you can dine in style on Tse Fung’s terrace. Le Loti Restaurant serves exquisite dishes like truffle risotto, a chocolate fondant and an old-style rum baba, Café Lauren is ideal for health freaks and the poolside Summer Lodge offers a more casual menu. Moreover, La Reserve’s breakfast is a feast for the senses and the perfect start of a perfect day. During the colder months, the Summer Lodge becomes the Winter Lodge for some sliding sensations (there’s a skating rink) and culinary delights. Isn’t it cool?
La Reserve Geneve’s spa sets the standard for the spa world. Here, charge your chakras, cleanse your aura and clear out your head space. Furthermore, this 2,000-square-meter temple of wellbeing, with rave reviews, is famous for its La Prairie beauty treatments and exclusive Nescens Better-Aging programs. Spa programs include genetic tests, medical check-ups and blood tests, all to achieve tip-top wellbeing. La Reserve Geneve’s indoor pool area is the ultimate chill-out zone, while the state-of-the-art gym and tennis courts are perfect if you’re in an active mood. Furthermore, there is pilates, yoga, aquagym and much more. Be sure to book time at the hammam and sauna for some soaping, steaming and scrubbing. In short, the possibilities are endless. Healthy food is served in the shimmering white surroundings of Café Lauren, which is also a lunchtime rendezvous spot for local spa members. Don’t forget: the greatest wealth is health.
