Geneva’s first all-suite hotel, The Woodward, is set to be launched next Spring by the Oetker Collection with the luxury property being located on Lake Geneva, Switzerland.
When completed, the hotel will feature 26 suites, two restaurants headed up by Michelin-starred chefs, a tea room, two bars, and a private cigar lounge.
The property was originally built by French architect, Francois Durel in 1901 and located in a former national bank. The hotel is currently undergoing its refurbishment overseen by world-famous architect Pierre-Yves Rochon.
Most of the hotel’s suites are set to boast stunning lake views and will have “distinct character” and unique design details such as marble fireplaces and libraries.
Guests of The Woodward Geneva will also be able to enjoy a vast spa, including a Wellness Institute by Maison Guerlain, two saunas and steams rooms, as well as Swedish baths, a jacuzzi, gym, and a 21-metre indoor swimming pool – which will boast the title of longest in Geneva.
Timo Gruenert, Chief Executive of Oetker Collection, said: “Our hotels are all unique masterpieces in their own right, and The Woodward fits in perfectly with its extraordinary location, refined interior design, and exciting culinary offerings.
“We will deliver warm, luxury hospitality and I am convinced that our company’s values of family spirit, elegance, and genuine kindness will bring this iconic building to life, and ensure guests will quickly feel at home in this new jewel on Lake Geneva.”
