ULTIMA COLLECTION ANNOUNCES ITS FIRST URBAN RETREAT: ULTIMA GENEVA GRAND VILLA
Ultima Collection announces the launch of Ultima Geneva Grand Villa, an urban sanctuary which opened its doors on 1 April 2020. Located on the shores of Lake Geneva, Ultima Geneva Grand Villa will be a luxury residence available for private hire only, offering travellers a stylish gateway to the Alps. Ultima Geneva represents a new chapter in Ultima Collection’s development, bringing the luxury comforts for which the Ultima brand is renowned to an urban environment. The Grand Villa is also the first of a series of properties to be located in and around Geneva, which once opened will offer both city centre and country destinations.
Located just 20 minutes from the city centre, Ultima Geneva Grand Villa will sleep up to 16 guests and will be comprised of one master bedroom, seven bedrooms and a one-bedroom guest villa, all of which are en-suite. Built over three storeys, the extraordinary villa will be in keeping with Ultima Collection’s commitment to providing an environment of pure relaxation, conviviality and privacy. The property features incredibly high ceilings and is bathed in natural light, offering a sumptuous home with a subtle yet elegant design narrative. An understated mix of contemporary lines and traditional architecture will be complemented by the brand’s signature design aesthetic of leather and natural materials, nubuck, sumptuous textiles, and rare marble sourced from Italy and Brazil, punctuated with bold art pieces and statement soft furnishings.
