As the oppressive summer heat engulfs the region once more and the luxuries of an afternoon walk or morning swim at the beach have long been forgotten, a refreshing destination offering breathtaking views at every turn, an endless list of outdoor adventure and palate pleasing cuisine beckons. And what better place than the ‘city of peace’.
Comfortably nestled between lake and mountain, Geneva lies on the cross-roads of Western Europe. Lovers of the finer things in life can relish in the city’s endless indulgent offerings. Its high-street shopping and reputation for its luxury watches are unrivaled throughout the continent whilst the warmth of the Genevan hospitality ensures travelers feel secure as they enjoy strolling by the jet d’eau, shopping bags in toe.
Epicureans are in safe hands with the city hosting over six Michelin starred restaurants heralding a cosmopolitan mélange of both international and local chefs seeking to thrill the gastronomical elite. Your inner thrill seeker is encouraged to escape its comfort zone to experience the natural beauty and exhilaration from paragliding over the Jura mountain range to hiking the impenetrable Alps and mountain biking amongst some of the most scenic paths in the world.
The five-star Inter Continental Genève is an oasis within this oasis, and summer holidaymakers can relax by one of the most sought after swimming pools in the city soaking up the European sun beside crystal waters while the dedicated team meets your every need. Guests can truly take indulgence to the next level at the Clarins Institut Spa which specializes in blending the art of aromatherapy and phytotherapy using treatments from Europe’s number one body care brand – a much needed reprieve after a day of hard shopping!
Inter Continental Genève guests enjoy the memorable views of the iconic Mont Blanc and Jura Mountain range, and its impressive rooms and suites exude the opulence that has become second nature to those from the Gulf.
