Oetker Collection recently announced that Woodward, a new hotel situated in the heart of Geneva on Quai Wilson, will be the next property to join its portfolio. The property sits directly on the shores of Lake Geneva, and offers panoramic views of Mont Blanc. Owned by Bastion Holdings, the hotel was originally built in 1901 by French architect François Durel in a post-Haussmann style. At present, it is being completely transformed and carefully reimagined by world-renowned architect Pierre-Yves Rochon.
The hotel will feature 26 suites, each of which suites has been carefully curated to possess its own distinct character and individual design details, with signature flourishes including marble fireplaces and bookcases. The hotel will also have a 1,200 m2 spa including a Wellness Institute by Maison Guerlain and a 21-metre indoor swimming pool – the longest in Geneva. There will also be a state-of-the-art gym, two saunas, two steam rooms, two Swedish baths and a Jacuzzi.
Guests will also be able to enjoy exclusive treatments by Guerlain across six wellness suites, including one for couples and a corner dedicated to men. Beyond the historic façade, guests will find classic-meets-contemporary interiors, providing a stylish city sanctuary with spectacular lake and mountain views. The property is likely to open doors to guests next spring.
Timo Gruenert, Chief Executive, Oetker Collection said in a statement that all the brand’s hotels are unique masterpieces in their own right, and the Woodward fits perfectly with its extraordinary location, refined interior design and exciting culinary offerings. He shared that the property will deliver warm, luxury hospitality and the company’s values of family spirit, elegance and genuine kindness will bring the iconic building to life, and ensure that guests feel at home in the new jewel on Lake Geneva.
