Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues Geneva

Opening its doors two centuries ago, Geneva’s first hotel is also its grandest. More akin to a palace than a traditional hotel, the neoclassical Hotel Four Seasons des Bergues welcomes guests near and far to revel in its old-world pomp and splendour.

Architect François-Ulrich Vaucher built and completed the Hotel des Bergues in 1834 based on plans supplied by André Miciol. However, Pierre-Yves Rochon most recently renovated its modern interior, paying homage to its grand roots. From marble floors to gilded furniture, all the frills are on show — as well as ultra-modern touches and amenities.

Pastel and metallic shades of eggshell blue, beige, gold, silver, bronze, lilac, and mint feature heavily in rooms and common areas. As does a pleasing mix of both modern and opulent furnishings — and fresh flower bouquets. Each room also boasts a private terrace and window views of either Lake Geneva or the snow-capped Alps.

Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues caters to a diverse range of guests, including states people, families, and business travelers. As such, its selection of amenities extends to meetings, events, and family-friendly activities, such as longboarding and family fishing.

The hotel boasts a spa — Spa Mont Blanc, featuring a hammam, steam room, fitness studio, wellness club, pool, hair salon, views over the rooftops of Geneva, and outdoor activities and group training sessions. The spa offers tailored treatments, including pampering and skincare for adults, men, kids, and teens alike.

Restaurant Il Lago, Izumi and Le Bar des Bergues

At this 5-star hotel, dining is top-class — the jewel being the Michelin-starred II Lago restaurant. A place to experience Italian gastronomy at its finest, Sorrento-born Chef Sena curates elevated tasting menus designed to share.

Exotic tastes are catered to at the Hotel des Bergues, too, with the introduction of Izumi — a Japanese fusion restaurant highlighting Nikkei cuisine. Situated on Hotel des Bergues’ rooftop, both stunning views and tantalizing light, fresh fare is on offer.

Guests can grab a rooftop drink here or head down to Le Bar des Bergues for a more formal affair. Conversely, the neoclassical bar is located in a drawing room of the hotel, taking guests back in time. At Hotel des Bergues, 24-hr in-room dining is also available.
