The designers of Giardino Lago, a 15-room retreat on the northern shore of Lake Maggiore, have taken inspiration from the region’s Mediterranean climate to create a hideaway that’s both calming and enriching. Whether visitors are arriving with the hotel group’s private airline, dining al fresco by the lake, or taking in the views from the 400-square-meter roof lounge, they'll benefit from first-class service, an exclusive range of facilities, and the region’s brilliant year-round sunshine.
MADE BY ORIGINALS
Daniela and Philippe Frutiger have a deep connection to the Giardino Hotel Group that stretches back to their chance encounter at the group’s first property in Ascona in 1994. Since then, the Frutigers have transformed the Swiss brand to include three hotels and a beauty and cosmetics line. Philippe comes from a culinary background and was educated in hotel management in his homeland of Switzerland, while Daniela is a trained beautician and pharmacist who handles the spa operations and interior design.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Impressive views of Lake Maggiore are showcased through expansive windows and from bright, open-air communal spaces, such as a white parasol-dotted patio, a roof lounge, and a curved exterior staircase. Just as architects Francesca Alder-Schweizer from Bofor Design and Rolf Balmer from Raumforum designed the building with the surroundings in mind, the interior designers used warm Mediterranean hues and local stone and woods to the same wondrous effect.
