Evian. Live stress-free

Latitude – set the scene: 10/10

Located in the heart of Evian, the jewel of the Evian Resort. The resort overlooks Evian-les-Bains, allowing for breathtaking views of Lake Geneva and the Swiss Alps. The moment you step foot in the area one already felt completely relaxed and pampered, not only by the fresh crisp air and the crystal clear water but also by the beautiful green environment and the surrounding scenery.

Style and ambiance: 10/10

The palace style establishment combines the the most stylish and elegant contemporary décor. Once passed the grand hotel entrance, guests are welcomed by the eye-opening scenery of Lake Geneva. One really enjoyed the ambience of the hotel especially as it provided the upmost serenity and peacefulness.

Furthermore the resort has an array of outstanding leisure facility on offer. In particular the outdoor spa area was phenomenal and truly pampering.

Service: 8/10

A warm welcomed from the Hotel Manager and the rest of the team was both a delight and very personal. Such personalised service really goes a long way these days. However, during the night it is a significant difference as there was an evident lack of staff. One tried to order some french fries and a burger only 5 minutes pass the given time, the night audit was so stubborn and refuse to do anything as his reason is he doesn’t understand the request – which seemed rather simple for a hotel of this calibre. One was really disappointed due to not having the ultimate delight of some late night snacks.

Where the magic happens – Rooms / Suites: 10/10

One stayed in a Residence Lake View, satisfactory in size. The interiors were very chic, the streamline of the room and the colour tine is very comfortable and calm. One was delighted with the abundant natural sunlight coming from the little terrace with the stunning view of Lake Geneva. It must be mentioned that the bath was also truly indulgent.

One experienced the breakfast and afternoon snack at La Véranda as well as dinner at Les Fresques. The breakfast was a little bit disappointing as the options weren’t sufficient, however the service was satisfying and the view of La Véranda was flawless. The club sandwich for afternoon snack at La Véranda was good but nothing special.

One believes compliments are requisite for the fantastic dinner. Service was hospitable and attentive. The food offering was truly divine.

Doubtless one of the best hotels one has stayed in for the past few months. From time to time one must indulge oneself in the most upmost tranquil atmosphere.
