Le Mirador Kempinski Hotel overlooking Lake Geneva
We rarely write about resorts or hotels in Europe, but when we do it means they’re simply amazing. This time we’ve focused on the Le Mirador Kempinski hotel, located in Switzerland, overlooking Lake Geneva. The hotel is just an hour’s drive away from the International Airport in Geneva and Bern. It can be reached via helicopter, as it sports a helipad, by cable car or by train – the idyllic Lavaux train.
The hotel shares absolutely superb views of Vevey and Lake Geneva, while being fiercely guarded by Mount Pelerin. The young staff offers exquisite services, assisting you even while lounging in your own private patio. The hotel’s Givenchy Spa makes sure you get pampered in every way, while, at nights, you may choose to get inside you state of the art room, endowed with amenities that will make you forget the word “home” ever existed.
If it is the outside that you prefer, then you can practice kite-surfing and skiing or you may embark upon journeys to the local Chillon Castle – a bit of culture never hurts, does it?
You won’t go hungry, don’t worry, as the local Le Trianon is ready to pamper your taste buds with every dish you dream of. There’s also Le Patio, a restaurant focusing on informal Mediterranean dishes, and Au Chalet, a traditional Swiss outpost.
Nightly rates start at €250 per night. You may choose every one of the total 64 rooms available if you book yours in time.
