Mandarin Oriental, Geneva launches its new Royal Penthouse suite, one of the largest of its kind in the city
Mandarin Oriental, Geneva has launched its newest signature suite for guests seeking the ultimate in comfort and spectacular views. Providing 325 square metres of contemporary elegance, the Royal Penthouse is one of the largest suites in Geneva. It features a splendid 175 square-metre terrace with panoramic vistas of snow-capped mountains, the River Rhone and the city’s Old Town.
Making the most of the Royal Penthouse’s situation on the hotel’s 7th and highest floor, its designers at BUZ Design have created an open-plan suite that is flooded with daylight pouring in through floor-to-ceiling windows and from which guests can enjoy expansive views of Geneva. The suite includes a master bedroom with hammam shower, two further en-suite bedrooms and a spacious living room carefully zoned into separate dining and lounge areas and with a cosy setting next to a fireplace. The suite features a sound-proofed entertainment room with the latest audio-visual equipment.
The Royal Penthouse can be converted into a one-bedroom suite or combined with the Royal Suite on the 6th floor, via a connecting private lift, to form the Imperial Residence, a sensational six-bedroom suite offering 577 square metres of pure luxury.
Each of the four main areas of the Royal Penthouse incorporates the colours and charms of a season. The master bedroom reflects spring, with carpets picking-up the blues of the lake and mountains and the bright yellows of tulips and other flowers. Autumnal hues fill the living room, while cool winter colours prevail in the entertainment room and a bright summery palette has been used in the second and third bedrooms.
For this newest suite at the hotel, BUZ Design has created a homely, welcoming terrace. In addition to its large size, the terrace’s stunning vistas give it that special wow-factor, making it perfect for entertaining. Parties on the terrace can be catered for in the suite’s well-equipped pantry.
Royal Penthouse guests will enjoy exclusive amenities and services, available either on a complimentary basis or at an indicated charge, to ensure a stay is tailored to their needs. Recommended moments include holding a film night in the suite’s entertainment room or selecting delicious dishes from the in-suite dining menu, prepared by a dedicated chef, to enjoy on the terrace or round the dining table. Outside the hotel, guests can witness the skill of watchmakers at work or fly 60 minutes to enjoy a picnic at a spectacular spot near Mont Blanc, western Europe’s highest peak.
“Our Royal Penthouse is a wonderful addition to Geneva’s luxury hotel scene. We are proud to add this contemporary suite, with its amazing view, to our collection of signature suites,” said David Collas, general manager of Mandarin Oriental, Geneva.
The Royal Penthouse comes with a wealth of amenities, such as return transfers with private driver from the airport, packing and unpacking services, an in-suite mixology session or a tasting of Yakumanka and Rasoi by Vineet signature dishes prepared in the privacy of the suite.
