Where sky and earth meet: our hotel on Lake Lugano

Inspired by the unique beauty of the land and its lush, unspoilt nature, an architectural masterpiece was created in cooperation with renowned Milan architecture firm R4M, where the distinctive style of owner Eva-Maria Schwenn can be seen in every flourish. Discreet yet impressive, the hotel on Lake Lugano stands where sky and earth, mountain and lake meet. In harmony with the idyllic natural landscape surrounding the lake hotel near Lugano, we have created a synthesis of art and nature that reflects the four elements – air, water, earth, and fire – in all its facets, and stays true to its roots. Roots that reach back to the Lepontine Celts who once settled in this area.

Water

Water has an almost magical allure. And it’s no wonder – water is life. At our hotel with pool near Lugano, we have harnessed the power of water to give you renewed well-being. Water played a vital role as a source of life in Celtic culture, a tradition we have revived in the SPA of our hotel. The Celts believed that every spring, every river, and every lake was inhabited by divine beings, and sought contact with them via various rituals to call on their healing powers. We have reinterpreted these rituals to whisk you away into new realms of well-being. So, book your stay at our 5-star superior hotel on Lake Lugano, dive into the waters of the lake and our unique infinity pool, and enjoy renewed vitality.

Earth

Aromatic herbs played as important a role for the Celts as they do in our exceptional hotel near Switzerland. The Druids, as the Celts called their healers, were well versed in the versatile healing powers of a wide range of herbs. But they didn’t only use these green power sources for medicinal purposes, they also used them as incense and wore them on their body as talismans. At our 5-star superior hotel on Lake Lugano, we have harnessed this ancient earth knowledge to develop delicious recipes, exquisite scents for our exclusive suites, and numerous beneficial treatments, all drawing on the power of aromatic herbs to give you a feeling of renewed vitality. And, of course, we only use the best natural products by leading manufacturers such as Ebenholz, Pino, and VITALIS Dr Joseph. Simply surrender yourself to nature’s embrace.
