Each dish incorporates salty, sweet, bitter, sour, spicy and tart components in harmonious unison, tantalising your taste buds and nourishing your body. Local herbs and invigorating spices ensure that your meal is easily digested, while the different flavours and textures offer a rich sensual experience. Enjoy food that simply does you good – without having to look too hard.

Ecco Zürich

The Ecco restaurants in Ascona and St. Moritz have a reputation for unique culinary virtuosity blended with a purist approach to taste – and both have two Michelin stars to prove it. With his food concept, Ecco founder Rolf Fliegauf artfully combines the natural flavours of seasonal ingredients to create the unmistakable Ecco cuisine: distinctive, intense, unexpected. In Zurich, Rolf Fliegauf has passed on the baton to his trusted associate Stefan Heilemann. Also awarded with 2 Michelin stars.

The outdoor pool & Ocean Bar

A Mediterranean dream. Large blocks of natural stone bordered by a fine wooden deck nestle on the edge of this turquoise jewel. At 25 metres long, the outdoor pool at Atlantis by Giardino stretches away in front of the forest like a holiday dream come true. Enjoy a refreshing lunch or drink at the Ocean Bar.
