A traditional Mongolian yurt has recently been installed in the park of the Hôtel du Léman in Jongny, Vaud.

The new yurt will offer guests a unique gastronomic experience, in a tranquil setting at the gates of Lavaux, overlooking Lake Geneva.  

With its luxurious array of shimmering colors, and perfect “cocoon-like” sound proofing, the yurt makes an ideal location for anyone looking to celebrate a birthday with family or friends, organize an aperitif with colleagues, or run a motivational evening for their sports team!  Measuring up to 50m2, the yurt can accommodate up to 35 people at a time.

On the menu is a special 3-course dinner, proposed by chef Laurent Omphalius and priced at Fr. 85.- per person, which includes chestnut soup (served in the cauldron outside, weather permitting), a meat or fish-based Mongolian fondue, with rice noodles and julienne vegetables. The homemade dessert is a mouth-watering combination of pineapple and coconut rolls with lychee sorbet.

Ideally located in the heart of Geneva, only steps from the lake and the Place des Alpes, Eastwest Hotel opened its doors 10 years ago. To celebrate this anniversary in the chic nomadic style that characterizes the hotel, Eastwest will take its guests on a journey from East to West through 10 exciting destinations. From Switzerland to Thailand via Japan and Denmark, this gourmet and cultural itinerary will make a stopover in a different country each month.

EASTWEST - the spirit of a private home in the heart of Geneva

A boutique hotel of understated luxury, Eastwest has attracted guests for 10 years with its intimate atmosphere and casual elegance in the spirit of a private home. Its refined contemporary setting is a subtle blend of East and West. A choice meeting place for a cosmopolitan Geneva clientele, the restaurant reflects the hotel’s traveling spirit, offering creative, modern world-inspired cuisine. The open-air patio and its wall of streaming water framed by vegetation is a real urban oasis. From February this year, the patio is transformed into a winter garden for the season, offering a new idyllic space that can be privatized for events or dinners under the stars.

Enjoy 50% off a healthy juice or snack with every "menu" purchase!

Everyone’s talking about healthy eating at the moment…workshops are popping up all over Geneva and Vaud about how to live more healthily, and invariably this includes making sensible choices about your diet.  We all know it makes sense, but do we have the time required to research the recipes, buy the food and then prepare it? How much easier it would be if that could all be done for us!

One local company which does just that is TAKINOA. Knowitall.ch met with Sales Manager, Delphine Graf, at their boutique restaurant in Nyon to find out more and the company and discover the secret behind its huge success in this region.

Founder, Eric Lebel

Launched officially under its current name back in 2013, TAKINOA is the brain child of Eric Lebel, a passionate mountaineer who was constantly searching ideas for healthy food that would give him the energy he needed when walking in the mountains.

Delphine told us, "As Eric researched various food options for his hikes, he soon realised that he was not alone in wanting to know more about healthy eating…indeed, it wasn’t just sporty people who were looking for healthy food, people from all walks of life were keen to improve their eating habits by introducing more healthy, balanced meals into their diet."
