La Réserve Genève: A Fashionable Holiday Haven and why you must visit it.
As the holiday season unfolds, it’s the perfect time to indulge in a lavish escape that combines luxury, style, and festive cheer. We decided to choose for our destination one of my favourite hotels: La Réserve, by Michel Reybier Hospitality. The hotel is nestled on the shores of Lake Geneva, it features timeless elegance and unparalleled sophistication. It’s an opulent retreat that promises an unforgettable holiday experience for everyone, including families.

From the moment you step into the lobby, La Réserve Genève exudes an air of refined luxury. The tasteful interiors, adorned with plush furnishings and contemporary art pieces, create an ambience that seamlessly blends classic charm with modern allure. The African lodge inspiration makes you forget that you are in Switzerland. Animal-inspired patterns, pictures, canvas and spirit are everywhere. However, the main star is the Elephant, the symbol of this hotel ( and other La Réserves and Michel Reybier brand). Another thing that I love is the scent, deep, intoxicating, and full of spices that promise all guests that this stay will be unforgettable. As an interior design enthusiast, I appreciate the meticulous attention to detail that permeates every corner of this five-star hotel.
Lobby of La Réserve Genève Hotel.
Just picture yourself strolling through the hotel’s immaculate halls adorned with tasteful holiday decorations, showcasing your most stylish winter wardrobe. Drinking special holiday drinks or hot chocolate. You can capture Instagram-worthy moments against the backdrop of the hotel’s seasonal decorations, including a large elephant and a stunning Christmas Tree. This place will let you create memories that will linger long after the holiday season ends. And if you missed the holidays, then don’t worry hotel looks beautiful each time of the year, with its fireplace, tasteful furniture and this unique scent that brings comfort and relaxation.
Opulent Living. Most comfortable room with views.
The rooms at La Réserve Genève are a haven of comfort and style. Elegantly appointed with sumptuous fabrics, designer furniture, and breathtaking views of Lake Geneva, each room is a dream. The holiday season is the perfect excuse to revel in the plush surroundings, perhaps even putting on your most glamorous attire for a photo shoot against Christmas deco. This is exactly what we did.
In the suite, you will forget your daily life and relax. We stayed in the suite with a lake view, it was a peaceful place. There was Champagne from Michel Reybier waiting for us and delicious pastries made by the chef Pierre-Alain Rouchon, including a chocolate elephant. My children also received some delicious freshly made cookies and sweets. The welcome was just beautiful.
A Culinary Extravaganza at La Réserve.
No perfect holiday is complete without indulging in exquisite culinary delights. La Réserve Genève boasts world-class restaurants, each offering a unique gastronomic journey. Imagine savouring delectable dishes crafted by renowned chefs while dressed in your chicest holiday ensemble.
You will be able to find something that you and your family will love. I like to have a light lunch at Le Café Lauren. This restaurant is located in the Nescens Spa and you can try the ani-aging and healthy cuisine there. For the dinner, I love Le Loti Restaurant which was reinvented in 2021. The decor is just magnificent:
A blend of distant influences joyfully intertwined by Jacques Garcia. In this dreamlike travel journal, blue, beige and ochre create a soft and luminous atmosphere that continues outside. Everywhere, the mysterious jungle atmosphere dotted with ferns and exotic flowers invades the premises, under the attentive gaze of the legendary parrots.
Some of my favourite dishes are Lobster spaghetti, Shrimp Popcorn and more.
The ambience of the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurants adds an extra layer of sophistication to your dining experience. So even if you are in Geneva for only 1 day you can come to the restaurant and taste some of their delicious dishes.
Last but not least there is also Le Tsé Fung Restaurant, the only Michelin-starred Chinese place in Switzerland. I never eaten there, but I have heard it’s fantastic.
Below you can find some pictures from our breakfast in the room. It’s not the first time I had breakfast at La Réserve and I hope it wasn’t the last time either. Mostly because it’s one of my favourites breakfasts. French toast is just 10/10 and everything is just melting in mouths.
La Réserve’s Nescens Spa is an oasis in the city. Ideal for rejuvenating treatments at the spa, swimming or sauna. After all, nothing looks better on us than radiant skin and a relaxed body. Part of the spa is also a hair salon by iconic Rossano Feretti. I feel very lucky as I met Rossano and he styled my hair 4 times already. He only comes to Genève once per year, but rest assured that you will be in a good hand there. Carlos and Amelié are trained by Rossano and they will make you look like a star.
Family Angle and Kids Club.
Without a doubt La Réserve Genève Hotel is the best family hotel in Geneva and surely one of the best in Switzerland. Their kids club La Petit Réserve is a dream for children. My son has been there since he was a baby and he still loves it (he is 6 now). Trained staff organized amazing and creative activities for the children. They are happy and relaxed and parents can enjoy their stay. Also, they decorate the room, especially for the children, there are beautiful toys and a tent, not to mention all the essentials. This time we came with the baby too and the hotel offered absolutely everything for him. From a little elephant teether to a sleeping bag.
La Réserve Genève hotel is also pet-friendly. I always travel with my Yorkie Minature as he is part of my family. I love it when he is also welcomed at the place we stay. It was like this at La Rèserve. He was offered a beautiful bed, food, and bottled water.
La Réserve Genève Hotel offers a holiday escape that transcends the ordinary. Inviting guests to experience the luxury and refinement. From couture living to culinary excellence, this Swiss retreat is a haven for those seeking a stylish holiday retreat. You can create memories that will last a very long time. I hope you will like it as much as I did and if you already stayed there, then please let me know about your stay in the comments.
