La Reserve is a city hotel, hidden away in ten acres of stunning park land on the shores of the beautiful Lake Geneva, providing the perfect backdrop for your wellness break. This is the place to come to hideaway, forget your cares, and simply focus on yourself on a wellness retreat.
Don’t be put off by the distinctly underwhelming exterior, which resembles a red-brick council building rather than a luxury hotel. For when you enter inside it's indeed very stylish - think African game reserve meets Euro-chic. With sumptuous rooms which provide a tranquil space to relax, a fantastic selection of dining options, and so much more, La Reserve leaves nothing to be desired. The spa is more impressive still - a 21,000 square foot dreamy vision with indoor pool, gym and luxurious treatment rooms to ensure that all your wellness needs are met and you're left never wanting to leave.
Some come to La Reserve for its effective weight loss programmes that include challenging personal training sessions with calorie-controlled meals and a variety of stomach-shrinking wraps that will take the inches off in no time. But it’s for its anti-ageing programmes that it gets its plaudits; you can choose to do 4, 7 or 14 nights. You start with a thorough medical examination which will assess how you are ageing, your bone density will be checked, along with your current nutrition deficiencies and your fitness levels. This is the domain of osteopath Sebastien Ducasse. He will examine your bone structure and natural movement, and will get a programme in place to correct any imbalances. Then you will work with the nutritionist who will give you an instant print-out of your antioxidant and inflammation levels, (this is your pre-indicator for any nasty diseases). Stunningly prepared healthy food can be enjoyed in Café Lauren, but you are here for the expertise of the practitioners to address your bad lifestyle habits and to get a full health MOT. By the time your retreat is up you are sure to feel as though the clock has been turnt back, looking and feeling like a much more youthful version of yourself.
Whatever your reason for visiting La Reserve, you can rest assured that you are in expert hands and will get the care and attention you need.
