Beau-Rivage Palace

    Though it dates to 1861, Beau-Rivage Palace in Lausanne, Switzerland, is by no means fusty and old-fashioned. A recently completed $74 million refurbishment—which spanned 12 years—has kept this Belle Epoque gem on the banks of Lake Geneva looking shiny and new. But despite its contemporary spa and upgraded interiors, the Beau-Rivage retains a gracious old-world charm, especially in the formal, circular Dining room at the Michelin-starred La Rotonde restaurant.Facilities A full spa includes use of the outdoor pool, steam rooms and Jacuzzis, just a short walk away from the shores of Lake Geneva. Dining An assortment of bars and restaurants should make your evening meal spectacular no matter what type of cuisine you crave, but a visit to the hotel’s wine cellar with more than 75,000 bottles and 600 listings will make sure you enjoy your food with the proper accompaniment. Concierge Recommends Lausanne and its surroundings boast 101 ways to relax and pursue sports, the hotel likes to say. Have the concierge recommend a daylong excursion complete with afternoon activities along the waters of Lake Geneva. Rates From about $375 to $5,935.
