Hans Heijligers

Originally from the Netherlands, Hans Heijligers spent 35 years of his hotel career abroad. He mainly settled in Asia where he led the entire Western region of Japan while serving as Managing Director at InterContinental Osaka for 3 years. Since 2016, he has held the position of Director of the InterContinental Hotel Group (IHG®) in Japan. As of the start of the 2022 school year, he wanted to return to Europe to get closer to his family and to take up a new challenge: to promote the place of the prestigious and legendary InterContinental Geneva in the eyes of the whole world.


A cosmopolitan city surrounded by majestic landscapes, Geneva feels both timeless and ahead of its time. This Swiss city is home to international diplomacy, scientific research and luxury craftsmanship. It is a destination that sets the global pulse, at the crossroads of cultures, the arts and ideas.

Since 1964, InterContinental Genève has welcomed guests from around the world. We regularly host diplomats, heads of state, eminent artists and celebrated athletes, many of whom have made and continue to make history here. With discretion and security core to our philosophy, InterContinental Genève has long been the trusted caretaker for global summits and diplomatic meetings.

Overlooking Lake Geneva and the city of Geneva, InterContinental Genève offers you seclusion and tranquillity at the heart of the United Nations district. From here, you can enjoy panoramic views of Mont Blanc and the Jura mountains. Inside, you can discover paintings, sculptures and other exclusive masterpieces created by international artists for the hotel. The modern yet classic interior reflects the elegance and cosmopolitan environment of Geneva, and is the result of an extensive renovation by New York designer Tony Chi.

For about 60 years, InterContinental Genève has been dedicated to the comfort, well-being and privacy of our guests. Whether it is business or leisure that brings you to Geneva, we are committed to sharing this legacy with you, so that you can make the most of your stay and remember it for years to come.

In the city where history has so often been made, InterContinental Genève welcomes you. Let this moment be yours.
