In fact, it isn’t really a hotel at all. It is more of a palazzo – at the same time, Giardino Lago is likely the most charming restaurant with rooms overlooking Lago Maggiore. After all, you really can enjoy time to yourself here. There are only 14 rooms in total. And a suite. They are all located in the extensively restored, historical part of the building. Each one features a unique design with fabrics from Designers Guild, exquisite smoked-oak flooring and delightful glass elements in which the reflection of Lago Maggiore can sometimes be glimpsed. Many other hotels can only dream of such a perfect location, so close to the water that you can almost jump straight in from the terrace.
If I see the lake, I don’t need any sea.Anna Schäfer, Michael Frowin and Jochen Kilian (Kabarett-Revue)
In the early morning, when the sun hasn’t yet risen above the mountains, the deep blue surface of the lake lies completely still. And the air! So mild. However, there is an explosion of Italian flair as soon as the palm trees are illuminated by the first rays of sun. Ticino is not said to have a Mediterranean soul for no reason. It is a place of power. Giardino Lago is located at the heart of this region, in Minusio near Locarno, at the northernmost point of Lago Maggiore. A beautiful promenade runs along the shores of the lake in front of the hotel. An excellent starting point to discover Ticino’s mountains, lidos and historic villages – should you wish to leave the terrace.
“di più” comes from Italian and can be roughly translated as “a little more”. More innovation, more professionalism and more Mediterranean dolce vita. This means that in the dipiù Spas, you can look forward to more than simple relaxation.
