Europe’s Largest Hotel Suite Is Swiss and Among the World’s Most Expensive
The Geneva Suite at the Grand Hotel Kempinski in Geneva is not only the largest continuous hotel suite in Europe, it also proves there is safety in numbers. The 11,625-square-foot residence takes up the hotel’s top two floors and features bulletproof bay windows, a dedicated security room armed with closed-circuit television, and a security guard to ensure high-profile guests have peace of mind during their stay. The palatial playground also includes a hammam, a billiards room, a fully equipped kitchen, a private chef, and even a governess to oversee children. When business beckons, an office with video-conferencing capabilities is available.
Swathed in Brazilian wood and limited-edition Baccarat crystal, the suite comes complete with a living room on each level, a dining room, three bedrooms, and an upper terrace facing gorgeous Lake Geneva and its harbor’s 450-foot Jet d’Eau fountain. While it is tempting to stay indoors in the lavish enclave—priced from about $51,500 per night, making it one of the world’s most expensive hotel suites—guests may also venture out to enjoy another of the hotel’s immense amenities: the largest private indoor pool in the city.
