Grand Hotel Lugano
Set on the shores of Lake Lugano, this magnificent 5-star resort is a property of immense charm, nestled within a private, subtropical park. Once the home of a noble Russian family, the impressive mansion was transformed into a hotel in 1885.
“For over 30 years our family has taken care of every last detail at Villa Castagnola, leaving nothing to chance. Our aim is to surprise you, inspire you and provide you with a unique experience. We look forward to meeting you in person and wish to warmly welcome everyone as our valued Guests.”
Ivan Zorloni, General Manager and Claudia Zorloni–Garzoni
