What with some of the world’s big­gest or­gan­i­sa­tions hav­ing an of­fice in Geneva, you would as­sume that this city is for the suited. Well, you are wrong. Geneva’s back al­leys are abuzz with res­tau­rants that boast cuisines from across the world, gourmet choco­late shops and ex­quis­ite watch and jew­ellery brands that al­low for am­ple re­tail ther­apy.

As the cold winds freeze Lake Geneva and white pow­dery snow cov­ers the Alps, the city trans­forms into a stun­ning win­ter won­der­land, per­fect for some ice-cold fun. So, hit up the gor­geous La Réserve Ho­tel on the shores of the lake, which is renowned for its spa, Sun­day brunch and stun­ning views of the sun­rise.

The ho­tel’s au­tumn week­end pack­age in­cludes two nights with break­fast, Sun­day brunch for two at its fa­mous The Loti restau­rant and the op­tion of a late check­out on your day of de­par­ture. Can you think of a bet­ter way to kick-start your Swiss va­ca­tion?

Rates start from Dh1,880 per night in a su­pe­rior room for sin­gle or dou­ble oc­cu­pa­tion. The of­fer is valid un­til Novem­ber 29, for a stay of a min­i­mum du­ra­tion of two nights from Fri­day to Sun­day in­clu­sive. Visit www.lare­
