History and location

Beau-Rivage Palace

History

The Beau-Rivage Palace has never closed its doors since 1861, and over the years has played host to many illustrious guests. Victor Hugo, Charlie Chaplin, Coco Chanel, Nelson Mandela and Tina Turner are just a few of the many famous names.

Considered to be one of Europe's finest hotels, the Beau-Rivage Palace remains true to its traditional values while at the same time constantly breathing new life into the hotel, matching the rapid and fascinating development of the "history of travel". Here we call it "Tradition in Motion".

The latest manifestation of this constant updating is the refurbishment of the Palace Wing by talented interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon.


Location

Nestling in 4 hectares of gardens on the shores of Lake Geneva and with a view of the Alps, the Beau-Rivage Palace enjoys an exceptional location, but is nevertheless just 10 minutes from the city centre, in the Ouchy harbour district.
