The Woods Restaurant
Located in the ground floor on the left side of the lobby area, the woods restaurant welcomes guests for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch! They have a lovely terrance that can be great during warmer days to eat outside.
The Brunch is served from 12h00 – 15h00 every Sunday in the restaurant, there is a hot and cold buffet, live carving stations and a sumptuous choice of desserts prepared by the Pastry Chef Julien Malanska! Claiming as one of the best brunchs in town it is now on my Brunching 2 Do list.
I have not had the chance to stay in the hotel yet, but I had the fortune to visit all the rooms (including the suites) and I can tell you that they are fabulous. They are all decorated by Toni Chi too and even the first category looks comfortable, spacious and practical.
I love the detail of the real orchids and black and white pictures framed, it is such a cute thing!
As you climb up the categories you will see more and more amazing surprises, Nespresso machine, marble bathrooms and more living space. As you climb up the floors you will see better the Jet d’Eau and the lake view, which is unique in Geneva. The hotel has a unique feature which is the 360°C view of Geneva being one of the highest points in the city; this translates into stunning views from the Mont Blanc, Leman Lake, Jura, Mont Saleve and all the way to Lausanne.
Resuming all of the above, the Intercontinental Geneva is a great hotel tastefully decorated by New York designer Toni Chi. It has a different location than all the other hotels in Geneva, where most of the hotels are located in the lake front, the Intercontinental is 10 min away from the Perle du Lac, leaving us to discover another side of the city. Which makes it the perfect hotel to stay in when going to the United Nations or an exposition at Palexpo. Plus it is amazingly connected to the public transport having their own Bus stop “InterContinental” is kind of a huge deal isn’t it?
If you are a local and do not know what do in a hot Sunday summer, pop-up to the Intercontinental to chill by the pool. Have a cocktail made my the winner of the Bartender contest Diageo, Olivia Hairay and let yourself enjoy a quality time in this city’s oasis. In case it is a cloudy day, pamper yourself in their Spa by Clarins, enjoy the Brunch and relax in their lobby with a Cafe Gourmand next to one of their chimneys.
I hope to see you there one day!
