“Weekend with a girlfriend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Last year I purchased a 'Dein Deal' voucher for a one night stay at the Jiva Hill Park Hotel. We finally used the voucher end October 2012.
I can only say that from my first reservation request by e-mail to our departure, the service, speed and friendliness of all the staff was excellent. An absolutely well performing team…but not overdoing it!
We have never felt in any way that we were ‘second’ class due to the special deal. Our ‘Deluxe’ room, subtle luxury, tastefully decorated with all the modern technologies, a very big bathroom (stand-alone big bath, shower for 2 persons), water, coffee & tea, etc. Very big terrace, overlooking the golf and the Jura mountains.
We chose to have dinner at their Shamwari restaurant, the set menu ‘Saveur’ for Euro 49. We were very happy with the outcome – excellent, well presented and quite sufficient. Very good choice of wine. Another nice thing is that it is not very noisy in the restaurant and the tables are quite far apart. To be recommended.
Breakfast buffet was also very good and in summer you could even take it outside on the terrace overlooking the countryside towards Geneva and the French Alps.
We also tested the inside swimming pool, jacuzzi and hammam. The Spa is not very big but nicely done and comfortable. Everything clean and tidy.
So all in all a very enjoyable experience in all aspects.
As the hotel is not far from Geneva airport, it would also be a nice location for company meetings, dinner parties, team building events, etc.
Many thanks to everyone at the Jiva Hill Park hotel! We will come again <3 !

Room Tip: I think that all the rooms are quiet as there is nothing around the hotel. Otherwise I don't kno...

I almost don't want to leave this review, as this place is really a jewel, a perfect jewel:).
I stayed here with my three dogs last month and I was treated so beautifully I hated to leave!
I had a wonderful suite with a hot tub, I felt as if I was on vacation in Big Sur in the French alps, but still so close to geneva. Beautifully appointed room and a bathroom of the quality one would find in a multi million dollar property's guesthouse in the south of france. very sexy, absolutely perfect.
the staff were all SO charming and kind, very chivalrous. I have written other reviews before of hotels where I state, the marker of a great hotel is how it treats its single female guests (perceived often rather stupidly as lacking resources or power) but here this was not the case. Every single staff member was lovely, kind and perfectly professional and respectful with me.
A very big chapeau to Mohammed at the front desk, what a lovely person. Thank you so much for the great room and for making sure I was happy.
Great spa, beautiful grounds, like being on vacation in Geneva. Highly recommended. !

We live just over the boarder in Geneva and very much enjoy spending the weekend at this hotel. Whilst it is a short drive from Geneva it feels a million miles away. The hotel is so quiet and peaceful and the views of the Jura Mountains from your room are excellent. The indoor pool is the perfect place to relax and there are treatments available on site. The Shamwari Restaurant is also a great experience with a vegetarian menu - unusual for France/Switzerland and very welcomed by my husband!

We spent four nights here at the start of our holiday in Europe and had an absolutely amazing experience. We had a ground floor room with a garden terrace which was fantastic and really well designed with views over the golf course to the Jura mountains. The bathroom was also outstanding with a huge double shower, a large bath and double sinks. We also loved the dressing room area, the coffee machine and the electric black out blinds! It was great in the morning to wake up, lean over to press a switch which opened the blinds to such a breathtaking view!

The pool, gym and spa facilities were also perfect. I did read a comment about the music and I agree that some of the "chilled out" remixes were laughable but we did really enjoy that!!!!

The breakfast was one of the best breakfasts that we have experienced which was made even better by the views of the alps and Mont Blanc! We ate at the restaurant on a couple of occasions and the food was outstanding. However the cost of eating at the restaurant was as breathtaking as the views!!! It was an amazing experience though and we enjoyed every moment of it, especially the extras. We also ate at the bar one evening in between games of pool which was more informal.

There is so much to do in the area and Geneva is just a short drive away but Jiva Hill have also created a place where you can just stay, relax and use their facilities.

My only minor criticism is that we only experienced the evening turn down service one of the four nights we were there which we thought was a little inconsistent but perhaps a small imperfection is not a bad thing!!! However when the price you pay for such an experience is so high maybe perfection should be expected.....maybe our next visit.....

Dear Madam,

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your room and that you have tried the various services offered by the hotel. This is thanks to feedback as yours that we are aware of that could be improved or corrected.

Indeed, the location of the Jiva Hill allows doing and discovering many things; currently we are considering the establishment of excursions in order to make discovering the area to our customers.

I do not understand what happened with the evening turn down service, but know that I'll make sure this kind of anomaly does not happen again.

We would be delighted to welcome you again, best regards

Amazing place. I spent 4 days there being on a business trip in Geneva.
I think it's the most beautiful hotel I ever been. Spacious room, perfectly clean, well equipped, terrace with the view at the mountains.
Room was gorgeous, but bathroom was breathtaking. You can choose between a shower and a big bathtub standing in the middle. You can slide the door between a bathroom and a room, and have a bath watching tv or listening to the music (perfect sound).
Restaurant serves very high quality food, waiters explain what they serve, tell you about ingredients, which was additional value for me.
Jiva is located in the countryside, about 30-40 minutes from Geneva. Staff can arrange a shuttle bus if you are a bigger group, or a taxi. The best is to be there with your own car.
It is a place for people who wants to relax, away from the city noise.

Dear Madam,

We have been aware of your comment and we thank you for this post very warm.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us during these four days. You seem to have been fascinated by the interior of the rooms; they were imagined and developed by Jean-Philippe Nuel, a Parisian interior decorator.

The restaurant offers gourmet cuisine constantly renewed to vary the flavors, and we strive to train at best our staff in order to bring you a unique culinary experience.

We are looking forward to welcome you, best regards,

Fabrice Mercier

My husband and I went for a weekend getaway. After passing a few strip malls and some industrial farms, we crossed the road and arrived at Jiva Hill. The grounds are beautiful with (perhaps not surprisingly, being a golf resort) beautifully manicured lawns and an artificial lake. Actually, as it turns out, parts of the golf greens are artificial too, so as to keep open all year.

This artificial feeling became a bit of a theme for our stay. The junior suites are in little, self contained bungalows, adding to the Barbie feel of the place. And throughout the gardens there is an omnipresent soundtrack of contemporary "classics" converted to generic muzac with an electronic comp. Our sunbathing was accompanied by generic ballade versions of modern masterpieces like Lady Gagas Pokerface and Prodigy's Outer Space.

Leaving the faintly amusing plasticness of the place aside, a great time was had by all. The junior suites are very comfortably appointed with all modern conveniences and luxury toiletries; the private jaccuzi on the terrace was great. The spa treatments were excellent. The service was very friendly and mostly impeccable. The food in the restaurant was good, with the best part being the great cheese board (the home made fois gras terrine was not bad either).

Jiva Hill is a nice weekend escape for couples in the greater Geneva area looking for a time-out of relaxation and luxury, and I would recommend it as such. A very comfortable, although faintly unreal, experience.

Dear Madam,

First of all, we would like to thank you for the comment you took the time to write and to publish on our TripAdvisor page. Every comment is scrupulously red and analysed, and gives rise to a critical review which is spread to all the members in the staff. Indeed, it’s a matter of principle for us to learn more about our guests’ experience: our master ambition is to offer to our clients a stay as they imagined and they hoped for. All our staff feels concerned by and is working hard to meet our clients’ expectations and needs, and this is this commitment which enhances the magical feel of the Jiva Hill. Our clients are our best advisers, and whatever the import of their opinion may be, positive or negative, we remembers it preciously in order to take advantage of it and to improve more and more our service quality.

We were delighted to learn that your stay was a great time for you and your husband, and that you spent it in excellent conditions. As you mentioned it, the Jiva Hill is a resort made up of a restaurant, a golf course, a well-being centre (swimming pool, sauna, hammam, fitness centre, body care centre), a watersport center and many outdoor activities. Concerning the architecture, the design and the atmosphere of the place, the Jiva Hill is a kind of aesthetic melting-pot, marrying Nordic and South-African inspirations, giving a complete feeling of change of scene in the greater Geneva area. Our resort is the ideal place in order to enjoy a well-being break outside of time and space, and each detail is thought so as to reach this goal, from the interior design of the rooms and the common areas to the landscaped park. The staff members taking a great part in the success of a stay, they are trained to adopt a “Luxury attitude”, that is to say to familiarise themselves with the attitudes and behaviour which are specific to our own vision of contemporary luxury. They are trained to have an understanding of the needs and expectations of our guests in order to ensure that we meet it and give you entire satisfaction.

Once again, we thank you for your comment, and we truly hope that we would have the opportunity to greet you on another occasion.

Sincerely yours.

Fabrice Mercier
