Cultural heritage and modernity on the banks of Lake Geneva

Since 1861, Beau-Rivage Palace has been proving that tradition and innovation – just like cultural heritage and modernity – complement each other very well. This ambassador of the highest Swiss hotel tradition is a great example of the country’s typically excellent hospitality.

The walls of this majestic building could tell 1001 stories ... about defining moments in history – such as the signing of pioneering treaties – about artists seeking inspiration, about royal families and famous celebrity guests. The legendary Beau-Rivage Palace guards many secrets.

Classed as one of the best hotels in Europe, it is made up of two buildings connected via the so-called La Rotonde, built in 1908. Ideally located on the shores of Lake Geneva, the Beau-Rivage Palace is nestled in a natural setting, a stone's throw from the centre of Lausanne. Like the International Olympic Committee, the palace is an institution in the Ouchy district.

Only 10 minutes from the vibrant city centre, the 5-star hotel benefits from the Mediterranean atmosphere of this port area. The hotel's four-hectare garden and splendid terrace are like a rejuvenating bubble. The view of the nearby Lake Geneva and the mountains of the Alps brings a unique serenity, as if out of time.
