Overlooking the Rhône River, just a few steps from the historic Old Town, the chic Mandarin Oriental Hotel du Rhône, Geneva will complete a significant refurbishment this July. All public areas of the hotel have been redesigned by internationally acclaimed interior designer, Adam Tihany, giving the hotel a contemporary, fresh look and introducing two unique dining concepts, a contemporary but classic bar, and seven new, well-appointed Junior Suites.
An Indian restaurant “Rasoi by Vineet” will be an exciting addition to the Geneva dining scene offering the cuisine of Michelin starred chef, Vineet Bahtia, who specialises in delicious and creative “evolved” Indian food. The restaurant will be decorated in vibrant reds and purples, creating an authentic Indian environment, with an outside terrace providing a welcome addition in the warm summer months. An open tandoori oven, located at the entrance of Rasoi and visible from the lobby, will provide a striking centrepiece.
“Le Sud”, a French-style brasserie, founded by award-winning Chef Paul Bocuse, and based on his Lyon Brasserie’s “Nord-Sud”, will provide an all day dining venue. The restaurant’s chic décor of beige, bronze and amber shades will provide a sophisticated yet informal ambience, ideal for both business meetings and casual daytime diners. At night the restaurant will transform itself with dramatic lighting, creating a more intimate dining experience.
The stylish new MO Bar has been designed as a contemporary, luxurious bar experience; featuring comfortable chocolate brown and deep blue leather and velvet seating. Open daily until 2am MO Bar is expected to become a popular location for informal meetings or friendly gatherings. Talented bar staff will provide an extensive array of sophisticated cocktails, while delicious tapas-style dishes will be available through the day.
Complementing the ground floor refurbishment will be six new spacious Junior Terrace Suites and a luxurious Terrace Suite with its own private spa room. Art Deco in style, featuring private terraces and Mandarin Oriental’s sophisticated guest technology, all the new suites will enjoy panoramic views of the Rhône River, Geneva’s historic Old Town and the surrounding snow-capped mountains.
