Geneva Kempinski opens again

The Grand Hotel Kempinski, located in the heart of Geneva, has officially reopened after two years of renovation works.the hotel offers stylish, contemporary accommodation, a new restaurant concept and ample conference and meeting space.

The Grand Hotel Kempinski Geneva is located at the shores of Lake Geneva, with views over the Jet d’eau (Geneva’s famed water fountain) and the Mont Blanc. The refurbishment started in 2005 and was conducted in two stages. Skillfully designed by tjca architects from Geneva, the aim was to make the lake the reference point of all public areas and to blur the border between building and water.

Deceptively simple materials have been used in the public areas, such as velvet in beige and burgundy tones with the occasional touch of light blue to subtly recall the ever-present lake. All 423 rooms, including 43 suites feature all modern amenities such as satellite TV and wireless Internet access.

An entirely new concept in food and beverage, the second floor - hence the name ‘FLOORTWO’ - places side by side a restaurant, a lounge and a bar. While each venue has its own specific feel and culinary style, guests can choose to order from the menu of any of the venues. During summer, the restaurant and bar will be extended by the spacious, maritime-styled terrace, again offering magnificent views over the lake.

The hotel hosts one of the largest in-house conference facilities in town, where a 630 m? ballroom features prominently. Other amenities include an indoor salt-water swimming pool with sauna, massage facilities, steam bath and techno-gym equipment. On the ground floor, a large luxury shopping arcade features an art gallery, deluxe jewelers and fashion boutiques.
