Mandarin Oriental, Geneva has launched its newest signature suite for guests seeking the ultimate in sumptuous 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.
For flexibility, 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,” explained J Lee Rofkind, founder of BUZ Design. 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, which designed the floor’s Junior Suites, has created a homely, welcoming terrace, a lush, peaceful haven. 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.
