AirX’s concierge service transports passengers directly from Geneva Airport to their luxury five-star hotels via private jet. In this guide, we’ve curated a selection of the finest luxury hotels in Geneva so you can choose the perfect place for your stay. 

Best for business travellers: the Mövenpick Hotel  

Your trip is strictly business-oriented, and you’re just dropping by before you jet off to your next destination. You want a convenient location, boardroom access, and a hotel with restful rooms and excellent cuisine. The fully soundproofed Mövenpick Hotel is ideal for you.  

It’s situated right at the airport and offers 19 meeting rooms. The cuisine is everything you’d expect from a luxury hotel, and if you have time to take in some sights, there’s a shuttle service at your disposal.  

Best for conferences: The Hotel President Wilson 

While the Hotel President Wilson is also a good home base for tourists and families, its central location makes it a prime spot for men and women with a mission. Although the hotel offers all the leisure amenities you’d expect, its focus on enterprises is reflected in its well-equipped business centre.  

Apart from offering everything you need to work solo, meeting rooms, conference areas, and an impressive convention centre are available. Of course, first-class catering need not be a challenge. The hotel will happily provide your delegates with a range of premium dining options.

Best for families and groups: the Four Seasons Des Bergues, Geneva 

If you’re hoping to base yourself near Lake Geneva, the Four Seasons group has the ideal spot for you. The family-friendly hotel offers beautifully furnished rooms and suites and has built a well-deserved reputation as one of the best luxury resorts on the shores of Lake Geneva.  

Besides having easy access to the city and offering options for countryside outings, you’re sure to love the cuisine, which ranges from Japanese to Michelin-starred Italian—looking for an unusual dining experience? Book a picnic on the water! Are you relaxing with friends? The luxurious in-house spa is the place to be.  

Elegant and pet-friendly: the InterContinental Genève 

Hoping to have your dog as a travel companion? Expect a welcome at the InterContinental. For the pinnacle of luxury, choose the La Résidence penthouse suite with its magnificent decor and panoramic views over the city, lake, and mountains.  

However, even a regular room at this hotel is designed to delight. As for dining, summer poolside treats and full-menu meals at the Woods restaurant are just two of your in-house options. 

The hotel’s concierge is also at your service for local recommendations and city tours to help you make the most of your break. But if all you want to do is relax in the lap of luxury, the hotel’s spa is the perfect place for a pampering session. 

Best for views: the Fairmont Grand Hotel 

Situated in the heart of the city on the banks of Lake Geneva, the Fairmont Grand Hotel offers the best in Genovese dining and incredible views of the lake and Mont Blanc.  

The hotel’s French, Swiss, and Italian cuisine are popular attractions that draw diners around the city to the historic landmark building. Amenities include a spa, fitness facilities, and an indoor heated pool.  

Childcare services are a big plus for couples who hope to enjoy the city’s attractions without catering for the kids all day. But your children needn’t feel left out. The hotel offers an array of child-friendly experiences, particularly during festive periods such as Easter and Christmas.  

Best for luxury decor: Hotel D’Angleterre 

No list of Geneva’s luxury lakeside hotels would be complete without the Hotel D’Angleterre. The decor and atmosphere are old-world elegance personified, but the services and amenities are thoroughly modern, creating a striking contrast.  

This hotel offers all the fine dining and amenities you’d expect from the best luxury 5-star hotels in Geneva and the location is superb. However, what really stands out is the stunning interior. True to its name, there’s an English flavour to many of the offerings, including high teas at the hotel or out on the lake’s waters. For an extra-special couple’s outing, venture in the hotel’s chauffeured Bentley and enjoy a romantic, fully catered picnic on the lake shore. 

Best for laid-back Swiss ambience: Les Armures Hotel 

The “old town” areas of European cities are filled with character and a sense of history, and Geneva is no exception. Just a short distance from the lake shore and its large hotels and resorts, Les Armures is a 5-star boutique hotel with a charming, informal ambience.  

Expect nothing less than luxury, however. This little gem has been praised for its authentic Swiss cuisine, and although it is not one of the largest hotels, it still offers a fully-equipped sauna and fitness centre.

Most romantic: La Réserve Genève Hotel, Spa and Villa 

For all the excitement of a city break and all the peace of a private estate, venture 5 km from Geneva’s city centre to discover La Réserve Genève Hotel, Spa and Villa. Set on a 10-acre property overlooking the lake, the property offers award-winning dining, beautifully decorated rooms, and an oasis of peace near the heart of Geneva.  

The outdoor pool area in its spacious garden offers iconic views: an ideal retreat after an energetic game of tennis or a cardio workout in the fitness centre.  

The spa may be among Geneva’s most beautiful and offers Swiss skincare treatments, therapies, and more. Perfect as a romantic couples’ retreat, childcare is available for couples seeking quality time together. 

Best home away from home: Swiss Luxury Apartments 

Are you hoping for hotel service but eager to make choices and enjoy greater privacy? Swiss Luxury Apartments offers an exciting 5-star option with extras no regular hotel can offer.  

While your apartment has its own kitchen, you can have bespoke room-service meals prepared by an excellent chef, enjoy full maid service, free laundry, and even a shopping service. Unlike most hotels, the building is closed to the general public, so your privacy and quiet are assured. Childcare services are offered, and there’s an in-house spa.  

Chateau hotels near Geneva are four-star rated: reasons and recommendations  

Travellers may look forward to the authenticity and historic charm of a chateau stay and be surprised to find that the best options are rated four-star establishments. However, there are reasons for this. The historic nature of these buildings limits the alterations that their owners may undertake to achieve a five-star rating. For example, regulations to preserve the character of these buildings may mean that changes to achieve energy efficiency are not permitted.  

For the same reason, it may be difficult to include other five-star features, such as multiple restaurant options. Despite this, four-star hotels still offer fantastic luxury experiences for travellers to Geneva. Here are two special recommendations for you.  

Best chateau stay near Geneva: Château D’Ouchy (4-star special mention) 

Although rated as a four-star hotel, the Chateau D’Ouchy deserves a special mention. This renovated medieval castle is under an hour’s drive away from Geneva in the popular lakeside resort of Ouchy – known for its breathtaking views. If you’re looking for regality and grandeur, the Knight’s Suite and Riviera Suite are highly recommended. 

Best for golf enthusiasts: Château de Bonmont (4-star special mention) 

Another special mention goes to the Bonmont. It’s home to an 18-hole golf course set in acres of woodland only slightly more than half an hour from Geneva. The intimate boutique hotel, set in a historic chateau, houses only 18 rooms with a 4-star rating. Step out onto greens overlooking the lake and enjoy views of Mont Blanc. With its spacious rooms, this country breakaway is a must for golfers. 

Whether you’re a business traveller on a tight schedule or a holidaymaker on the trip of a lifetime, AirX’s private jets offer you luxurious travel and personalised service. Choose a jet, choose a menu, set the schedule – arrive in Geneva refreshed and ready for a fabulous trip.
