The Four Seasons was the very first hotel in Geneva, built in 1834, and is rich in history, having welcomed discerning travellers from all over the wold. A stay at the Four Seasons des Bergues still offers guests the ultimate lavish lifestyle, and the service is warm and to a very high standard, living up to the Four Seasons’ sterling reputation.
This is a gorgeous hotel. I have always loved the charm of neoclassical facades, and find this hotel’s to be particularly striking, particularly given its priviliged position on the shores of Lake Geneva, enjoying views of stunning natural surroundings, including the lake, the Alps and Geneva Old Town.
Opulent interiors enhance the sense of luxury living; the bedrooms are adorned with beautiful antique furniture, marble features, crystal chandeliers, rich fabrics, all chosen to provide the utmost comfort by Designer Pierre Yves Rochon, whose impeccable taste has ensured each space feels classic and elegant.
The rooms enjoy beautiful views framed by larlge windows, and all have high ceilings and additional seating areas for extra comfort.
The larger suites boast private terraces to better enjoy the stunning scenery.
Indulge in treatment at the Spa, soak in the rooftop indoor infinity pool and relax in the sauna and hammam. A team of wellness practitioners are available to tailor spa treatments to your personal needs.
Dinner at Michelin-starred Il Lago is highly-recommended to try authentic Italian cuisine from Chef Sena's seasonal menu.
Or head to the hotel rooftop to sample Japanese fusion Nikkei cuisine at Izumi - the view from here is spectacular. Le Bar des Bergues offers lighter fare, cocktails and a convivial atmosphere. In summer, guests can dine outside Le Bar on the beautiful terrace.
Do you travel with your pets?? You can take dogs here if you’re travelling with them and they will be utterly spoilt by the wonderful team of staff.
British Airways have a brand new fabulous Business Class lounge at Geneva airport - perfect for a relaxing wait before your flight.
Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.
