The name that now unites all Giardino retreats and resorts was born here. Nestled between the picturesque Alps and the idyllic shores of Lago Maggiore, Giardino Ascona exudes the true definition of “la dolce vita”, offering casual luxury and outstanding hospitality. Lavender, mimosa, lemon and olive trees thrive in the garden, which is the green heart of this well-established retreat. Pools, bars, lounges, daybeds and sun loungers blend in with the scenery, inviting guests to contemplate and unwind. A world of its own – private retreats around the water lily pond help guests relax from the moment they arrive.
The 54 rooms and 18 suites, with sizes between 25 and 70 m2, have a modern, Mediterranean feel with summery shades, dark real wood parquet flooring and high-quality fabrics and furnishings. The balconies and patios appear to be natural extensions of the wonderful green landscape. And for anyone wanting a little extra support: the preventative health programme Ayurveda by Giardino gently balances body and mind. This is more than a luxury for the senses. It’s five stars for the soul.
