Mandarin Oriental, Geneva, Switzerland

The Mandarin Oriental, Geneva has a superb location on the River Rhône, located within the heart of Geneva’s shopping, historic and business districts. Unparalleled service and luxury make it the ideal choice for the discerning leisure and business traveller alike.

The hotel features 181 spacious rooms and suites, with the suites on the seventh floor all enjoying private terraces with supreme views of the River Rhône, Old Town and surrounding snow-capped mountains. Following a complete renovation in 2013, the hotel’s accommodation is decorated in warm earth-tones of chocolate, beige, brown and plum, with modern art accents and state-of-the-art technology. Boasting the largest bathrooms in the city, each guestroom features separate bathtub and large walk-in rain-shower.

The renovation introduced a selection of new Mandarin Junior Suites and Superior Suites on the hotel’s sixth floor including the 210 sqm Royal Mandarin Suite with its own private elevator. These spacious rooms blend contemporary design with effortless elegance andare decorated in a sophisticated palette of fuchsia and silver or in delicate tones of gold and burgundy, with Italian marble bathrooms.

The hotel’s fine-dining signature restaurant “Rasoi by Vineet” offers the cuisine of renowned chef, Vineet Bhatia, who specialises in “evolved” Indian food. The restaurant is decorated in vibrant colours of reds and purples to create a truly stylish Indian escape with an outside terrace providing a welcome addition in the warm summer months. A beautifully designed open tandoori oven, located at the entrance of Rasoi and visible from the lobby, provides a striking centrepiece.

European-style luxury “Café Calla” offers modern and refined all day dining for hotel guests and locals alike. Its chic décor of beige, bronze and amber shades makes it sophisticated yet casual and an ideal venue for casual daytime diners or for a business luncheon. A stylishly designed glass walled wine cellar stands in the corner of the restaurant and provides an exciting venue for private wine tastings with the hotel’s sommelier.

In addition, the stylish MO Bar provides a modern luxury bar experience; a special corner of the hotel with rich chocolate brown woods and deep blue leather and velvet seating. Open all day every day, it has been designed as a contemporary yet classic bar with an extensive cocktail menu offering three distinctive and interwoven themes from past, present and future.
