In addition, guests can enjoy 1994-themed pool and ski parties, and summer events that will have everyone reminiscing about iconic ’90s songs and style.
“When we opened our doors as a newly transformed resort in 1994, we never thought we’d have so much fun becoming one of the Midwest’s premier vacation and conference destinations in Lake Geneva,” said Steve Magnuson, managing director. “We’ve been creating memories for visitors for 25 years, and there is no better way to celebrate than to offer our guests, neighbors and associates special celebratory experiences and have fun with it.”
For foodies, Grand Geneva is offering a variety of dining specials – including the exclusive 25th birthday peanut butter bomb dessert. The resort’s award-winning restaurants, Geneva ChopHouse and Ristorantè Brissago, will also offer distinct tasting menus highlighting dishes served at the resort 25 years ago, including appetizers such as seared scallops with white truffle honey, pancetta crisps and a borola gastrique; a chicken schnitzel dish with Yukon gold potatoes, fried capers and a citrus buerre blanc; as well as a tuna tartar with avocado-cucumber salad, sweet soy glaze with sriracha. Guests can toast the resort’s silver anniversary with a bottle of Grand Geneva Select 25, the hotel’s private label bottle of bourbon, the resort’s own Grand Geneva Amber Ale draft beer, and the limited edition 25th birthday canned Brute beers.
The party doesn’t stop there. Just in time for this momentous occasion, the resort recently completed the renovation of its largest conference space, the Forum Convention Center, completed updates to its boardrooms for smaller meetings, and refreshed its beautiful Grand Suite accommodations.
