Switzerland: Summer in Geneva
OUR LATEST DISCOVERY
Hotel Intercontinental Geneva Pool and Poolside Restaurant
Every weekend the Hotel Intercontinental Geneva opens its large outdoor swimming pool to the public. The poolside restaurant serves light, healthy, inventive dishes, such as vegetable tempura (shown below) and mezzes, as well as healthy drinks such as the Detox Smoothie (shown below). They use local and Swiss ingredients as much as possible, buying them directly from farmers and producers and working in close conjunction with OPAGE, the Geneva cantonal promoters for agriculture, so the vegetables and fruit are of a surprising freshness.
The price is 50 CHF for the entire day during the week, and 90 CHF on weekends. It is best to reserve ahead, since on nice sunny days people head for the lake or pools, and Geneva is lacking in large outdoor pools. The spa is right next door and poolsiders, and it is also available pool guests.
