The newly remodeled Beau-Rivage Palace will install new lakeside igloos for guests to enjoy during the holiday season.

On ten acres of gardens, adjacent to Lake Geneva, with stunning views of the Swiss Alps, Beau-Rivage Palace in Lausanne, Switzerland will now offer guests a new holiday experience with the installation of lakeside igloos. The installation will take place from December 2016 through the end of January 2017.

“As soon as the first snowflakes start to fall, guests are invited to treat themselves to a unique Swiss winter experience in one of the igloos dotting the gardens,” says Nathalie Seiler-Hayez, general manager of the Beau-Rivage Palace.

Fashioned by a team of designers from the Swiss décor site Chic Cham in collaboration with Espaces Contemporains, these chalet-chic Nordic retreats come in two different styles. One is a classic Alpine style, with wooden elements and red and green accents; the second igloos offers a modern experience and is decorated with frosted silvers and golds. Each igloos can host up to six people for tea time.

Guests at Beau-Rivage can also enjoy the ice skating rink in the Lobby Lounge terrace with a special menu of seasonal delicacies at the skating rink’s chalet, and be warmed up by a Finnish wood burner and warm blankets. Out in the garden, children can participate in pastry and macaron workshops, pony rides and toasted marshmallows. A New Year’s Eve gala will offer Champagne and tap dance performances from Martin’s Tap Dance.

Beau-Rivage Palace also features an award-winning spa and a two-Michelin starred restaurant — Anne-Sophie Pic — which is helmed by France’s only three-Michelin-starred female chef.
