Hotel Splendide Royal is the ideal place for exploring Ticino. With its more than 130 years of history making it one of the oldest hotels in Ticino, the Splendide has a charm suspended between past and future, underlined by the Mediterranean Riviera atmosphere with touches of art nouveau, and by its natural calling to the "Dolce Vita". Tradition and contemporary spirit come together here for a unique hospitality experience.
A historic building of the Belle Epoque overlooking the lake, it offers a privileged view over Ceresio. Particular attention is paid to the little things, which make a holiday or stay here unforgettable. Starting from the kitchen: the gastronomic restaurant I Due Sud (16 GaultMillau points) is the hotel's jewel, thanks to the inspiration and professionalism of Chef Domenico Ruberto. Hospitality and skill are guaranteed in the dining room by Simone Ragusa, already named the Best Sommelier in Switzerland.
The kitchen is the all-around protagonist, starting in the morning with breakfasts full of zero-kilometre products, passing through to the Mediterranean flavours of Ristorante La Veranda, followed by a cocktail on the terrace as an aperitif, up to dinners overlooking the lake.
The latest addition is the Lifestyle Spa: a swimming pool with the comforts of a lounge and the view of a terrace, customised wellness pampering and Biologique Recherche Paris products exclusively for Ticino. With the addition of the wellness offer, Hotel Splendide Royal - a historic member of The Leading Hotels of the World - is transformed into an urban resort where every season has its own reason.
