A relaxed boutique hotel with style

Lakeside luxury

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.

Simply time for yourself

Rooms and suite

It is actually more of a palazzo than a hotel: the 14 rooms and the suite housed in this villa on the shores of the lake combine maritime chic with Mediterranean nonchalance. Due to the hotel’s historical structure, no two rooms are the same at Giardino Lago. Any yet they all have something in common: the colours white and turquoise exude a cool and laid-back feel, modern glass elements create a sense of open space and the fresh design is reminiscent of balmy summer evenings. Always, of course. Always including breakfast buffet and Wi-Fi.

The lake and Ticino

Dolce vita all day

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.
