The Beau-Rivage was built in 1865 by Jean-Jacques Mayer, and has remained in the hands of the same family for five generations; one of the rare hotels in Switzerland that is still run by the founder’s direct descendants. Following a meticulous renovation from 2007-10, the hotel has been restored to its original grandeur, complete with precious pieces of furniture and art collected for over 150 years. Six historic suites imbued with the spirit of a bygone era have retained traces of their original décor, wood paneling, and fine Italian frescoes. These magnificently restored suites all have balconies looking out over the spectacular scenery of Lake Geneva and its Jet d’Eau (water jet).
