A sleek hotel just walking distance from the United Nations, InterContinental Geneva is popular with diplomats, heads of state and visiting royalty. But it’s not just for those on a diplomatic mission; there’s plenty to enjoy including a heated outdoor pool with a Mediterranean restaurant; a spa by Clarins; and Woods, a delicious restaurant that champions Swiss ingredients and cuisine, even listing their provenance on the menu. Up on the top floor, combining the Royal and Presidential Residences creates the incredible Imperial Residence, which has been home to countless delegations. Naturally, there are two of nearly everything, including master bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms and even two hammams. Architect Tony Chi imbued the space with a classic yet modern feel with luxurious details throughout. Views of the lake and mountains shine through floor-to-ceiling windows.
