The return from bliss to an active life should be gradual. The hotel offers various free activities: lake tours in a small private boat, cycling, tennis and Nordic walking. You can do plenty of activities right within the hotel grounds – the 4-hectare garden is at your disposal. Before going to sleep, you can have a relaxing tea made up for you (there are several kinds to choose from) and be offered a comfortable pillow (you can choose from several options). When your cheek touches it, you will smell an Egyptian aroma of Cinq Mondes that will deliver you straight into the arms of Morpheus…
Playgrounds, entertainment programs, special dishes and menus – they are standard things in many palace hotels. However, here at Beau-Rivage Palace we have decided to excite and genuinely surprise our young guests. For example, kids can participate in the “Be our concierge” workshop: a child is dressed in the uniform and given an opportunity to help the hotel’s concierge, who will talk about all their profession entails. Those who have a passion for cooking will certainly enjoy the chef’s dessert workshop. Beginner gourmets can not only show off in a chef’s hat, but will also learn how to cook delicious sweets and desserts to surprise their parents. Many will be delighted by tips from a florist, during the special workshop aimed at mastering the secrets of creating beautiful bouquets. But that’s not all: a professional bartender is ready to reveal the secrets of mixing Bori, a traditional Beau-Rivage Palace non-alcoholic cocktail, and other beverages, meaning that children and teenagers will be able to mix them on their own.
Adults will have a chance to feel like children again in the Charlie Chaplin museum, a temple for movie lovers and admirers of the great comedian. The 3,000 square meter interactive space will take you into Chaplin’s world of comedy and poignancy.
Beau-Rivage Palace is the place where Anne- Sophie Pic, the only woman in Switzerland to be awarded three Michelin stars, creates her incredible masterpieces. Throughout the year, her restaurant holds fascinating gastronomic events – themed evenings, wine tasting and guest appearances from other famous chefs. You can spend a memorable romantic evening on board a small cruise ship, the same one that sailed here 100 years ago. During the three-hour dinner, prepared under the guidance of Anne-Sophie, guests will enjoy stunning views, a delicious menu and the special atmosphere of the Belle Epoque (gastronomic cruises take place on Tuesdays and Saturdays, from 18:45 to 22:30). The perfect venue for simpler dinners and relaxed meetings is Cafe Beau-Rivage (you should definitely try the tartar, perhaps the best in the city).
Anne-Sophie devotes some days to a special menu with wine: for example, on September 8 th, 2016, the dishes will be designed to match a selection of fine wines from Chateau Leoville Barton in Bordeaux. The menu will cost CHF 480 per person, including wine. For reservations please call 021 613 33 39 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
