The city of Geneva is sleek, sophisticated, and a must see for intrepid travelers. It really is a cosmopolitan hub, bursting with the chatter of a hundred languages. In fact, it is so highly regarded that it is commonly mistaken for the Swiss capital.

It is by the banks of the river Rhône that you will find the Mandarin Oriental Geneva hotel, a stylish hot-spot designed for the modern jet-setter. As soon as you step into the lobby of this luxury hotel, it becomes clear that the needs of the guest come first.

“A jewel in Geneva's crown”

We have had the pleasure of staying at the Mandarin Oriental on several occasions over the last few years, and have always been deeply impressed. Whilst its services do lean towards the business set, staff are expertly trained, and know the value of providing all visitors with a memorable experience.

During our most recent stay, we experienced a stunning roof terrace suite, offering extensive views over the city. With a sun lounger to hand, and a cold drink to one side, I can’t see how anybody could fail to be charmed by Geneva - particularly from way up high, where the light is glorious.

The rooms are perfectly designed for business visitors, with a desk and a fax machine in one corner. Ours was spacious, clean, and luxurious. I could happily see myself working out of the Mandarin Oriental, if I was ever to end up on an extended Swiss business trip. The only problem would be keeping me away from the sauna and the steam room downstairs.

The décor in the rooms is smart and appealing, with an emphasis on contemporary accents and features. It is stylish, without being ostentatious, and rewards those with a keen eye for graphic design. The bed was an unforgettable feature, coming as it did with luxurious goose down bedding, and an extensive pillow menu.

You can’t talk about the Mandarin Oriental without mentioning its Michelin Star restaurant, Rasoi. It was the first fine dining Indian restaurant in Geneva, and it continues to be one of the best. The dishes here are world class, and service with a smile is guaranteed, so visit for a bite to eat at least once during your stay, if possible.

I warn you though, it is wickedly enjoyable to feast on Michelin quality food, and then saunter off to the MO Bar for after dinner cocktails. The hotel does have its own gym, so feel free to work up a sweat, if your lamb chops and lobster leave you feeling a little tight around the middle.

The Mandarin Oriental is a wonderful place to spend time, no matter what your business in Geneva – work or leisure. The customer service is impeccable, the rooms are luxurious, and the city is right outside the front door.
