  • About this holiday

    This Belle-Epoque villa lives up to the suggestions of its name, with a palatial façade and charming rooms. Looking out onto the Borromeo Gulf on Lake Maggiore, the Grand Hotel Majestic has harnessed these fantastic views by acquiring its own private beach.

    Our opinion

    The Hotel Grand Majestic is elegant and luxurious in a lakeside position.

    Hotel description

    The Grand Hotel Majestic enjoys an enviable lakeside position on a promontory that juts out into Lake Maggiore and is surrounded by well-kept gardens in the English style with lawns and trees. The Grand Hotel Majestic has a private waterfront, its own small beach on the lake and a private jetty. Just off shore is the tiny island of San Giovanni. The hotel dates from the 1870s, is privately owned and has been refurbished over recent years to extremely high standards. It is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. The feel of the hotel combines that of the Belle Epoque with contemporary touches. There are 80 bright and elegant rooms, many with lake view. Some rooms interconnect. The hotel has two restaurants, La Beola, which is an indoor gourmet restaurant and Il Portico which is open air. The Grand Hotel Majestic is in an ideal location for relaxing and sightseeing. The hotel has an indoor pool with sliding doors onto the gardens and lakeside. The recently opened beauty and wellness centre offers a pampering array of treatments and massages as well as a fitness room and sauna. Outside you can play tennis or relax on the long, panoramic terrace. The Grand Hotel Majestic is only a few minutes on foot from the picturesque resort of Pallanza.
