The Mandarin Oriental hotel in Geneva has partnered with Swiss watch brand Hublot by offering guests an exclusive package that combines an overnight stay in one of the hotel’s luxury suites with a private visit to one of the region’s famous ateliers.

Guests booking into the hotel’s “Suite Luxury of Time” will enjoy a private limousine transfer from Geneva International Airport, and be welcomed with in-suite Champagne.

During their stay, they will be taken on a scenic drive from Geneva to nearby Nyon where they will be greeted by a master horloger who will take them on a bespoke private tour of the atelier, revealing the secrets of some of the world’s most luxurious and intricate timepieces.

The visit will end with a special workshop during which guests will take the seat of a master Horloger and discover the mastery that goes into assembling a Hublot watch.
