With superb views of Lake Geneva and a prime locale near the Perle-du-Lac park, Hotel President Wilson offers a serene stay in the busy city. It has several great bars, including a whisky bar; a spa with La Mer treatments; and a beautiful pool. The restaurants reflect Geneva’s international reputation: Enjoy Lebanese delicacies at Arabesque, Michelin-starred French fare at Bayview by Michel Roth and Japanese-French fusion at Umami. Above it all is one of the world’s finest suites: the Royal Penthouse Suite, spanning all 18,000 sq ft of the eighth floor with 12 bedrooms (two masters); top-notch safety features like a private elevator and bulletproof windows; a large terrace with views of the lake and the Alps; and plenty of room for entertaining. Antiques, a grand piano and a blue billiard table set the tone in the elegant space.
