Hot tips and must-visit places.
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.lareserve.ch/en.
