  • I often go to the the Paquis baths. Nice place that offers such opportunities: a beautiful beach at the Lake, a sauna, hamman and Turkish bath. Events are held throughout the year. It is possible to restore. Breakfasts, salads, and daily specials are offered all this feet in water :-) There are also excellent fondue!

  • The beach and the promenade with cafes in the Centre of Geneva. Here you can swim, sunbathe on special wooden decks, or simply take a walk along the waterfront and sit in a small cozy Café.

  • Being in a Sauna in the middle of a lake in Geneva is priceless (unlike everything else in Switzerland), you can spend a few hours of full relaxation with great views, take a swim in the cristal clear waters of the lake and finish with an amazing fondue just outside of the Bains des Paquis. Remember you are expected to go in completely naked, don't forget to bring 2 towels and flip flops. Prices are great and people are super friendly and helpful.
  • Great and affordable food, nice view, great for swimming or have a sauna. Summer and winter! One of my favourite spot in Geneva!
  • My first time experiencing Swiss fondue, so I cannot speak from experience. However, I really enjoyed the place, even with the large group I was with. The fondue was delicious, and they had a nice wine selection. I look forward to my next visit.
  • Great place, friendly staff, always good food. Massages and great fondue in winter. In August there are early morning concerts starting at 6am. Only negative point is, that there is no non-smoking area at the lake, be prepared to be surrounded by smokers when relaxing at the lake.
  • It's a great place with a very nice view. In winter it's nice to have a fondue here. The interior might be not that cozy (it's more of a beach house during the summer time), but the food is good, the staff tries to be fast and the price is great for Geneva standards.
