An invitation to an elegant escape 

Travelling in a hot-air balloon is like staying at the Beau-Rivage Palace: it’s always done with refinement.
In soothing silence, the views on the lake are majestic and striking. Gaze into the far-off distance, your eyes catching only on the crests of the snow-capped Alps. With trunks and luggage on board, hats and cosy coats, beautiful jewellery, and dressed to the nines,
it’s time to give your stay at the Beau-Rivage Palace a ‘flight of fancy’ with an “Air de Fête” !

The Christmas log of Beau-Rivage Palace

Limited edition

Prepared to order and in limited numbers, the Beau-Rivage Palace’s Buche de Noel yule-log cake is an annual highlight of Christmas in Lausanne. This year’s version created by our team of pastry chefs features a delightful blend of chestnut laced with lemon pulp. Break through its highest-quality dark chocolate shell and see how the sweetness of the chestnut takes on a unique tang thanks to the delicate hint of citrus.
