The Woodward is a masterpiece of Oetker Collection hotels and the first suite-only hotel in Geneva, overlooking Mont Blanc. Originally built in 1901 by French architect François Durel, it is an outstanding property with rich historical and artistic value.

Oetker Collection appointed architect Pierre-Yves Rochon, a well-known name in luxury design, for the challenging task of fully restoring the buildings' original Belle Époque-style façade and ensuring a cohesive modern interpretation of classic interiors.

Embarking on a complex project with a demand for great attention to detail is no easy task, but our team is always ready and committed to it.

The Woodward has impeccable design details such as handmade wallpaper, Lalique door handles, and Christian Liaigre signature furniture pieces. A light palette with great emphasis on beige tones is the main element of interior spaces with touches of pastel blue that reference the azure waters of Lake Geneva. Our ambitious vision for the bespoke amenities at The Woodward was to create them in perfect alignment with marble fireplaces, embellished lacquered wood bars and a calming pastel colour palette.


Choosing the timeless design, we've created a line of items in minimalistic linear shapes in classic black and white colours, ideally in tune with the marble design around the room. Our designers have purposefully crafted lacquered black trays and contrasting white tissue boxes and amenity boxes, thinking about the placement of items within the space and how it would grab the attention of a guest. Our team has given attention to the standard room amenities, which are rarely found in current properties, creating pouch mirrors with the Oetker Collection emblem in creamy white leather.

We always work closely with the hotel team and developers to deliver the best bespoke items considering the environment. With our team, even the youngest guests are taken care of. For The Woodward Geneva, we have designed and produced a range of exciting kids' items, including kids' activity books, bags and hats. Completely in tune with the property's elegant and simplistic design features, we have created bespoke kids' amenities that are exciting for children to discover and carry around.
