Oetker Collection is delighted to announce that the newest addition to the portfolio of Masterpiece Hotels is now open: The Woodward in Geneva.
With only 26 accommodations, the suite-only hotel on Quai Wilson is located right on Lake Geneva, with aweinspiring views of the water and the majestic Mont Blanc. Dating back to 1901, the post-Haussmannstyle building has undergone a meticulous reimagination by world-renowned architect and interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, along with BEA SA architects, to emerge with world-class dining experiences L’Atelier Robuchon and Le Jardinier, and wellness destination Club Woodward, which includes an extensive Guerlain Spa.
The Woodward gives rise to a new class of hotels that feel more like an ultra-chic private home than a hotel, and is set to become an elegant social hub in Geneva, raising the bar in terms of gastronomy, design and wellness.
Timo Gruenert, CEO of Oetker Collection comments: “We are delighted to open the doors of The Woodward in a city as vibrant and significant as Geneva. This new jewel in the collection – our first hotel in Switzerland – strikes the perfect balance between delivering the warm, authentic hospitality for which our Masterpiece Hotels are loved, while hailing a new era for this class of intimate city hotels: the ‘grand boutique hotel’.
Our company’s values of family spirit, elegance and genuine kindness will bring this iconic building to life once again and ensure guests will quickly feel at home on Lake Geneva.” Christophe Aldunate, President of Bastion Management adds: “It gives us great pleasure to see The Woodward open its doors as part of Oetker Collection, an iconic brand that upholds the highest standards in hospitality and who we trust to be the custodians of this historic Geneva landmark, all while delivering an exceptional guest experience with modern flair and charm.”
