Beau Rivage Geneva Hotel Lac Leman

You are planning a romantic getaway this Valentine’s Day or beyond? Why not Geneva! Voted Best European City Break Destination three times in a row, the city that Calvin once wanted to make a “New Jerusalem” has indeed a lot to offer.

Located on the shores of Lake Léman and at just a stone’s throw from the Alps, Geneva is an attractive tourist destination. It is easy to access by car, by plane or by public transport and offers visitors not only spectacular sights but also many interesting things to do… without the downsides of mass tourism.

Geneva is home to several outstanding 5-Star hotels, one of which is the Beau-Rivage, a luxury hotel with a unique style and one of the finest gourmet restaurants in Geneva, Le Chat Botté, awarded 18/20 by Gault&Millau and a Michelin star.

Since 1865, when Jean-Jacques Mayer founded the Beau-Rivage, it belonged to members of his family. Today, the owners Jacques Mayer and Catherine Nickbarte-Mayer can look proudly back on a long and prosperous history of their establishment. The Beau-Rivage is one of the rare hotels in Switzerland that is managed by direct descendants of the founder.

Alexandre Nickbarte-Mayer, son of Catherine, was appointed General Manager of the Beau-Rivage in 2016 and represents the fifth generation in the family.

To celebrate the month of Love, the Beau-Rivage concocted a number of bespoke romantic experiences including in-room service, spa treatments and an exquisite Michelin-star dining menu. Just recently, our Bombom Bijoux girls Ana and Nicole went to discover the hotel’s special offers for February, the month of love. Here some of their personal highlights.
