Fodor's Expert Review Dellago

Lago di Lugano, Melide, Ticino, 6815, Switzerland Fodor's Choice

Combining a soothing atmosphere, personal service, and unpretentious savoir-faire, this stylish refuge on the lake not only pampers its guests, but is one of the hippest hotels in Ticino and one of the few in the canton to dare break from the traditional hotel mold. 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.

PROS

  • breakfast comes with homemade jams, fine teas, and unusual breads
  • there's a hotel paddleboat for excursions on the lake
  • the dockside lounge pours outstanding cocktails

CONS

  • rooms facing the busy street are noisy
  • most rooms do not allow children
  • some rooms are on the small side
