Globetrotting: Lake Lugano, Italy The Destination You Need

Overlooking the emerald waters of Lake Lugano in Cima di Porlezza, Como, on the southern slope of Mount Bronzone, nestled in a subtropical park of 40,000 square meters and a forest of over 200,000 square meters is ARIA Retreat & SPA. Designed for true lovers of nature and beauty, this environmentally-friendly architectural hotel harmoniously integrates with the landscape in a serene embrace with the lake.

At the heart of this project is the 360° well-being of the customer, which is built through tailor-made service and a personalized offering of services and facilities.

ARIA Retreat & SPA works on the concept of the emotional experience for its guests: the CEò spa with a wellness center, the Dolce Vita Lounge & Terrace lounge bar, and the fine dining restaurant La Musa Restaurant & Rooftop Terrace all contribute to making the offering of this luxury hotel truly experiential. There are fifteen suites within the property. The first “terrace” houses the 130-square-meter heated indoor pool with a significant relaxation area; large windows provide this space with great brightness and a splendid lake view. From the same floor, through a water passage, you can reach the heated saltwater outdoor infinity pool. The next floor houses the CEò spa, an important wellness area with panoramic saunas, a Turkish bath, private spas, an outdoor jacuzzi, and treatment rooms. Also on the same floor is the Lounge Bar La Dolce Vita with its picturesque terrace and reception. Above the pools and the spa, but set back, rise the three distinct residential blocks composed of LOGGIA SUITE, GRAND LOGGIA SUITE, and PENTHOUSE SUITE. An elegant, refined, and comfortable interior design studied in every detail. Very bright spaces with luxury furnishings, exclusive materials, and precious fabrics characterize the interior of each suite, all of which are hypoallergenic.

A stylish lounge bar with elegant and welcoming surroundings, offers a magnificent view of Lake Lugano and a summer terrace for moments of pure relaxation immersed in beauty. A proposal that spans throughout the day: From small but delicious snacks, simple yet refined and high-quality creations by chef Michele Pili during the day, to an aperitif or after-dinner drink. The Cocktail Menu offers a selection of home-made infusion alcoholic and non-alcoholic creations, conceived by Matteo Zecchini, ARIA’s maitre and sommelier, after many years of experience in the international world of drinks. La Dolce Vita, with its terrace, is primarily dedicated to ARIA guests, but the opportunity to enjoy a drink with a view of the lake is also offered to external guests, subject to reservation and availability.

ARIA Retreat & SPA offers guests the opportunity to experience true emotional experiences within the facility and in the Lake Lugano and Lake Como regions. The resort’s reception staff suggests “33 things to do” in culinary, cultural, and sporting experiences that make a wedding, honeymoon or vacation at ARIA unique and unforgettable.
