On a ten-acre parkland on Lake Geneva's shore, this "elegant and subtle" Belle Époque hotel has a wooden pier left over from the steamboat days of the small port Ouchy. Cathedral-ceiling rooms have been updated with Asian carpets and bathrooms "full of marble." Chef Anne-Sophie Pic invents seasonal surprises at her eponymous restaurant, where a selection of aged Armagnacs is at hand. Stained glass windows surround the hotel's main staircase.
