Lausanne adventures in the lap of luxury


Middle East travellers can continue to expect tailored service on visits to the luxury Beau-Rivage Palace, on the shores of Lake Geneva in Lausanne, following the appointment of a new management team at the top Swiss hotel.

The hotel’s new general manager, Francois Dussart, says one of his top priorities will be to enhance the hotel’s reputation for catering to the special needs of Middle East guests, starting with Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr.

Those planning short trips to Europe during the Ramadan and Eid period can take advantage of special two-night packages at the Beau-Rivage Palace offering accommodation for two in a superior lake view room at ($217) per per person per night.
The price includes buffet breakfast, fruits and flowers in the room, a gastronomic diner in the hotel’s La Rotonde French restaurant, and complimentary tickets to Lausanne’s fascinating Olympic Museum. Guests also have free access to the hotel’s fitness centre.

Dussart, supported by a new resident manager, Kor Dormans, said: “The Beau Rivage Palace has become increasingly popular with visitors from the Middle East over the years because of the special attention it pays to the particular requirements of guests from that region. We intend to continue meeting their needs in new and innovative ways.”
Middle East guests arriving via Geneva International Airport can reserve a chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce to whisk them away on a 40-minute drive to the hotel, which is set in private, lakeside grounds.

With all guest rooms boasting private balconies, giving superb views across Lake Geneva to the Alps, the hotel has a line-up of restaurants, as well as its own spa offering health and beauty treatments.
