Beau Rivage offers deals

The Beau-Rivage Palace ... offering Middle Est couples romantic Valentine's Day getaway breaks.

Switzerland's Beau Rivage Palace is luring Middle East travellers with the offer of romantic Valentine's Day getaway breaks.

With an idyllic setting on the shores of Lake Geneva in Lausanne, the Beau-Rivage Palace has a history rich in romance. Diana Ross was married there, and so, more recently, was another international singing star, Phil Collins.

Situated in Lausanne's most stylish area, with the medieval town centre and its small alleys, boutiques, and lively cafes, just a short stroll away, the hotel is offering Middle East couples Valentine's Day packages from $289 per person.

"We always ensure special treatment for couples arriving here for romantic getaways, and our Valentine's Day offer this year is aimed especially at the Middle East, where our client list is growing," said Christian Marich, the hotel's general manager.

Guests can spend Valentine's Day in a superior double room with magnificent view over the lake and the snow-capped Alps, with complimentary fruits and fresh flowers.

Other attractions include a candlelight dinner for two at the gastronomic French restaurant, as well as a sumptuous buffet breakfast on the following day. Ladies will receive a tulle heart, filled with white and red rose petals, for use as pot-pourri.

Middle East guests can take advantage of an extended Valentine's Day offer, with double room rates at $202 per person per night, valid from February 10 to February 16.
