Built by the Mayers in 1865, the Hotel Beau-Rivage is still run by the same family, even today. The hotel has always sought to attract those who in search of traditional luxury, charm and discretion, and thanks to its attentive service and modern comforts has become one of the most exclusive addresses in Switzerland. And one of the most panoramic: the views from the rooms extend all the way across Lake Geneva to the Alps beyond. The hotel is located in the heart of Geneva's commercial centre.
The Aga Khan was there, as were François Mitterand, Tina Turner and Igor Stravinsky, Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni, Björn Borg and Alain Prost. The famous Hotel Splendide Royal wears its name like a badge of honour. And with good reason, too. For this hotel has been the number one address in Lugano for a good one hundred years. And not just for the rich and famous, but for all those wishing to explore the fascinating world of Ticino or visiting the region on business.
Combining traditional style, elegance and spaciousness with modern luxury and comfort is the recipe for this hotel's welcoming informality. Its favoured location, nestled between lakes and rivers and located at the foot of the Jungfrau massif, affords stunning views of its beautiful surrounds. 224 large rooms, conference rooms, 3 restaurants (15 and 2x13 GaultMillau points), bars, smoker's lounge, monumental spa complex.
