Cultural heritage and modernity on the banks of Lake Geneva. Since 1861, Beau-Rivage Palace has been proving that tradition and innovation, just like cultural heritage and modernity - complement each other very well. This ambassador of the highest Swiss hotel tradition is a great example of its typically excellent hospitality. This majestic building walls could tell 1001 stories about defining moments in history – such as the signing of pioneering treaties, about artists seeking inspiration, about royal families, and celebrity guests. The legendary Beau-Rivage Palace guards many secrets.
