The innovative hotel group YOTEL has announced the upcoming opening of YOTEL Geneva Lake.

This design-led tech-inspired property promises to be a cutting-edge Nordic-inspired hospitality and entertainment destination created in partnership with Caviar House Airport Premium-Switzerland.

A strategic location

Expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2022, YOTEL Geneva Lake will accommodate guests in a space distinguished by its smart design and creative use of technology.

With its Lake Geneva location, the property will act as a gateway to the region, providing easy access to destinations including Geneva, Nyon and Lausanne.

“We are delighted to be adding to our overall growth strategy by opening YOTEL Geneva Lake in the metropolitan region of Lake Geneva,” said Hubert Viriot, CEO, YOTEL. “The hotel will offer easy access from all parts of Romandie and feature fun and futuristic design coupled with state-of-the-art F&B and ample co-working and meeting spaces.”

“We are equally excited to partner with Caviar House Airport Premium – Switzerland. Challenging the status quo of traditional hospitality, YOTEL Geneva Lake will not only revolutionise travel in the region but, in our innovative spirit, offer the ultimate hospitality hub for both business and leisure travellers alike.”

Peter G. Rebeiz, chairman and CEO, Caviar House Airport Premium – Switzerland, added: “HYGGE will be Switzerland’s first gastronomy destination inspired by the Danish concept of hygge, providing mouth-watering dining experiences in a cosy atmosphere and at an affordable price – ideal for hotel guests and locals alike.”

“HYGGE will also offer extensive meeting and co-working spaces, featuring the latest in computer technology and telecommunication – perfect for supporting global business meetings, organise sophisticated events and an ideal environment for freelancers, entrepreneurs and small companies to work and socialise.”

A new hub for work and play

YOTEL Geneva Lake will comprise 237 guest rooms with the group’s signature technology and design features including YOTEL’s adjustable SmartBed, sensory mood lighting and the ability to connect mobile devices to SMART TVs. Guests and local members will have use of the site’s gym.

This accommodation will be joined by the entertainment, meeting and co-working destination developed by Caviar House Airport Premium – Switzerland, HYGGE, featuring a Danish-inspired restaurant, bar and café and designed with contemporary Nordic architecture.

Guests will be able to check in using self-service stations or the YOTEL app and mobile devices are to be able to be used as SmartKeys.

The hotel is conveniently located near Geneva airport. This area is home to a number of non-profit organisations, multinational companies and top universities. The French border is also nearby.

The hotel is owned by Conamo SA and asset managed by Stoneweg SA. Architectural practice ris + partenaires is leading the design and Creneau International has been appointed as the interior designer for the hotel’s public spaces.
