Founded in 1865 by Jean-Jacques Mayer, Beau-Rivage has remained in the hands of the same family over five generations. Faithful to its founding philosophy, the family perpetuates the Beau-Rivage spirit with great passion in reverence to the grandeur that has been shaped over time by distinguished guests and eminent visitors. Along the coveted promenade of the shores of Lake Geneva, Beau-Rivage enjoys a privileged location in the heart of Geneva: close to the business district; five minutes from the Old Town with its famous cobbled streets and museums; and within ten minutes drive from the airport and international organizations. Since its opening, Beau-Rivage has cultivated an authentic art de vivre (lifestyle), and today it vaunts 80 splendid rooms and 15 magnificent suites, each of which are a real discovery. For over 150 years, the hotel and its sublime treasures offer every visitor the unique privilege of beauty and refinement.
