Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues Geneva
Time Out says
Rooftop lake views and French furnishings at Geneva's orginal luxury hotel.
Claiming to be Geneva’s very first hotel, the Four Seasons has been welcoming upmarket guests to its elegant surroundings since 1834. These days it’s one of a string of luxury hotels sitting regally on the banks of Lake Geneva, but it’s still among the best. The 115 guest rooms are sumptuously decorated with plush fabrics, classic wallpaper, thick draping curtains and chandelier-style light fittings. Many have balconies overlooking the lake. If you can bear to step away from your room, you’ll find more luxury in the spa, including an infinity pool with a superb view, a rooftop terrace and spacious treatment rooms. As for food, munch on seasonal Italian dishes at Il Lago or choose Izumi for high-class Japanese cuisine from the team behind Nobu. The latter has a rooftop terrace perfect for watching the sun go down over the lake.
