    Our opinion

    A unique, luxury, five star hotel on the border between Italy and Switzerland, with excellent, attractive features for single travellers, couples, and families alike.

    Hotel description

    The five star superior Hotel Eden Roc proudly sits on the banks of Lake Maggiore in Ascona, Ticino. This area of Northern Italy is known for its stunning natural beauty, as green mountains rise on either side of the deep blue waters of the Italian and Swiss Lakes, separated from the tranquil hotel swimming pool by a row of swaying palm trees. Behind the yachts and private boats of its own personal marina, the Hotel Eden Roc is a modern building with an abundance of large windows and long balconies. Divided into the Hotel Eden Roc and the Eden Roc Marina, the vast selection of room types are split across two main areas, and linked by a low-rise lobby and public area. Gardens, trees, sun loungers, and parasols extend right up to the water’s edge, providing idyllic, verdant spaces in which to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Inside, a traditional grandeur is introduced in a sleek, sophisticated fashion. In the Eden Roc Marina, the dining room is decorated with intricate chandeliers, floral curtains, and vases in the centres of tables. The radiant white colour scheme, minimalist furniture designs, and double-storey windows, bring these traditional features up to date. Guests can enjoy the fresh mountain air while dining on one of the restaurant terraces, in the walled waterside courtyard at La Casetta, or in the pretty poolside garden at the Restaurant Eden Roc. During the day, guests are encouraged to indulge further at the ultra-modern Wellness Centre and Spa. The main spa rooms are lit by an ethereal blue light, with a choice between a crescent-moon-shaped dipping pool and a larger half-indoor half-outdoor swimming pool. Enjoy a range of personalised treatments, before relaxing in the spacious lounge, the sauna, or enjoying a beauty treatment. At the end of a relaxing day, retire to your room. Each guestroom has been individually appointed, with quirky, colourful features and bold artworks which inspire a themed colour scheme. All are spacious, with textured, tactile fabrics, and large windows and balconies that open up onto unbeatable views. For the ultimate Ascona experience, upgrade at the time of booking to a room with a direct lake view. The area around Ascona is perfect for day excursions, with plenty of cultural activities in neighbouring Locarno, and excellent train connections to cities such as Lugano, and Italianate Bellinzona. We would recommend including this hotel as part of a longer rail touring holiday around Switzerland, stopping off in a range of towns and cities and staying in a tailor-made collection of luxury hotels.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    Next door to Locarno, recognised for having the warmest climate in Switzerland, a stay in Ascano is a more tranquil option for relaxing and enjoying the sunshine on the lakeside or in a quaint pavement café. Spend an afternoon in Locarno, visiting the important religious and cultural sites, including the 17th century Church of St Anthony, the 16th century Church of San Francesco, the mid-17th century New Church, and the late 15th century Sanctuary of the Madonna del Sasso. Ensure you have time to visit the brooding Visconti Castle, which hosts a permanent exhibition of Roman glass. Venture out into the surrounding landscape to climb the Cardada Cimetta to witness both the highest and lowest parts of Switzerland in one sweeping gaze: Lake Maggiore and the Valais High Alps. Perhaps weave your way through the Magic Valley or the Verzasca Valley, where the water has a distinctive rich green-turquoise colour. Lake Maggiore is the perfect place to enjoy a serene lake cruise or partake in some thrilling water sports.

    Sports nearby

    Two 18-hole golf courses are very close by.


    Additional beds are available on request and are complimentary for children under 3; child-minding facilities are also available at the kindergarten.
