Property Description

Just 300 m from Lago Maggiore, in Switzerland. It is a very elegant location, which though easily reached, is away from the hustle and bustle of Locarno, Ascona and Lugano. The wellness hotel Esplanade, amongst the most highly regarded in Ticino, provides business people and holidaymakers with placid seclusion in an evocative atmosphere.The hotel is surrounded by 40,000 square meters of exotic vegetation and over 1000 palm trees, blessed by the extraordinary mildness of the Ticino microclimate. The hotel offers splendid views over Lago Maggiore and the surrounding mountains.The 67 rooms and junior suites, boasting a fine range of amenities and warm parquet flooring, make our guests feel welcome and offer magnificent views: the lovely exotic palm grove and, from the balconies overlooking the lake, the splendid setting of Ticino's mountains.At the 'La Belle Epoque' restaurant, the chef Mauro Grandi and his collaborators prepare savoury meals based on meat or fish as well as a rich offering of exquisite vegetarian meals, excellent first courses and a panoply of exquisite deserts. A choice of top-class wines accompanies the delicious aromas and flavours.At the Esplanade, the 7 conference and banquet rooms enjoy natural light and breathtaking views. They can seat up to 140 people.The Wellness & Beauty “Le Palme” offers heated outdoor pool, saunas, Turkish bath, whirlpool bath, relaxing area, fitness room, tennis courts, bicycles and a vast range of body and facial treatments.
