More than just beauty in Geneva

Better Aging meets design and science comes to the rescue – escape the rat-race in utter luxe and cure your weary body at the ever so fabulous La Réserve Hotel & Spa Genève this summer.

This is a designer lakeside retreat where beauty, Swiss science and luxury merge for an ethos of Better Aging Science by Nescens. Who are these guys? They have pioneered the antidote to living as well as long as possible, created by Professor Jacques Proust – a pioneer in the biology of aging and anti-aging medicine.

Alone the setting is itself a rest-bite from the hectic buzz of Geneva, it is a Retreat & Spa with the addition of a wonderful large open-air pool set among the lawns.

Inside, a Spa designed by Jacques Garcia epitomizes what an urban sanctum should look like with his signature seashell pendulum lights, moody colour tones around the indoor hydro pool and designer coolness in white of Café Lauren. This is no ordinary Café – here the hotel’s gourmet champion chef has created a balanced dietary heaven inspired by the tastes of nature and the science from Nescens.

There are several treatment rooms, Sauna and Hamam and rain showers. Sports and fitness is catered for with outdoor tennis courts and a full in-house gym with TechnoGym and Kinesis™ equipment as well as a full exercise class regime of Yoga, Cardiovascular and Pilates style classes. Nautical Aquagym is also instructed in the indoor pool.

At the heart of the Spa are the programmes of Better Aging by Nescens – Spas can certainly beautify, but if you’re looking to be transformed with the appliance of science, La Réserve Genève’s Medical Spa is the place to go and experience their signature treatments starting with your Anti-Aging Bioindividuality™.

The spa’s medical team then create a personalized program targeting the specific needs of the guest, such as stress reduction or slimming and toning. The 24 treatments on offer are extensive, including massages, body wraps and body scrubs (several using caviar), and guests are invited to play sports, join fitness classes or have personal training.

Three healthy personalized meals a day served at the hotel’s plush Café Lauren with outdoor terrace ensure that the guest’s diet is kept in check too. Don’t fret if you just want to have a treatment or let La Prairie work their magic with Caviar, Gold and Ice Crystal facials.

Life is good when you are at La Réserve Hotel & Nescens Spa Geneva – no wonder it’s a haunt for celebrities as well as the affluent locals. Here’s to Better Aging in absolute designer comfort.
