Fodor's Review

Combining a soothing atmosphere, personal service, and unpretentious savoir-faire, this stylish refuge on the lake spoils its guests. At dinnertime the casual lakeside terrace lures many locals for astounding entrées such as tender mahimahi fillet glazed with ginger, sesame, and chili and served on a bed of coconut-lemongrass risotto. Individually decorated rooms are equipped with a range of high-end amenities, but are missing phones and other old-fashioned items. This is the hippest hotel in Ticinoand one of the only in the canton to dare break from the traditional hotel mold.
