Be as free as a child. Be free at our resort Parco San Marco.
ARIA Retreat & SPA is primarily aimed at guests aged 16 and over, who will discover an oasis of peace and tranquillity where they can enjoy unique moments of relaxation on Lake Como and Lake Lugano. Here on the shore of Lake Lugano we have created a unique realm where adults and children alike can discover the finer side of life. Children will find their paradise with the numerous activities and highlights on offer at our Resort Parco San Marco: family restaurants, Family SPA San Marco with children's pool, Club Bim Bam Bino, and much more.
In this oasis of regeneration, adults will enjoy the luxury of time – for themselves and with their families – while children will have time for adventures and unique moments.
With the eyes of a child: our open-air world of playful adventure
The 35,000m2 park surrounding our hotel on Lake Lugano and family-friendly Parco San Marco is a place of peace and tranquillity, a place of discovery and a place of freedom to play. In the midst of this natural paradise, an unparalleled place of power, we have created a unique open-air world of playful adventure right at the heart of Parco San Marco that promotes free play and encourages flights of fancy. It features a fun pool with water slides, an adventure playground with climbing tower and sand boxes, a little pirate ship, a large archery area, and an inline skate park with skateboard halfpipe.
Club Bim Bam Bino – adventures out in nature and much more
We see the world through the eyes of a child. That’s why we have developed an age-appropriate children’s programme for children from 6 to 12 years old in cooperation with Parco San Marco, which is offered seven days a week from April to October. We roam through nature together, discovering wonders both big and small, create all kinds of artworks with natural materials in our children’s workshop, investigate some of life’s big questions in our children’s university, listen to enthralling stories, or test our physical ability during yoga or while climbing. Those who wish to do so can eat their lunch and evening meal together with the trained supervisors. And before the little ones fall into bed, tired but happy, they can let loose in the children’s disco.
Timeout for parents: our babysitting service
Spending time with your children is important – and so is some alone time for yourself and as a couple. That’s why, in addition to our extensive children’s programme, we also offer a special babysitting service for children under two years old, as well as for older children on request. You’ll have all the time in the world for a special treatment in our wellness hotel near Lugano, a romantic trip out on the water or on dry land, a long evening meal by candlelight, and for all the other things there’s just no time for in your daily lives. The babysitting service costs 20 euros an hour (40 euros an hour from midnight onwards) and can only be guaranteed if pre-booked 24 hours in advance.
