Via del Segnale 10, 6612 Ascona, Switzerland  

Located on the very edge of Switzerland, almost in Italy, Ascona gives you a sense of “la dolce vita” but with a contemporary touch. Doing nothing is an option here but not an obligation. The same is true of Giardino Ascona.   It is a fresh, five star design hotel that redefines recuperation on Lago Maggiore Yoga in the morning yachting in the evening.  Pool today, paddle tomorrow.  You define what recuperation mean to you.  The green mountains of Ticino, the first palm trees of Italy, and in the midst of them all: the Hotel Giardino Ascona.  The building is constructed in the Tuscan style, and the enormous garden s like something from a fairy tale.

Giardino has always differed from other luxury hotels in Switzerland.  The Giardino Hotels amaze guests with their very own interpretation of luxury, creating a uniquely relaxing atmosphere so you can feel completely at ease.  Welcome home.  


Summer is never far away here.  The 51 rooms and 18 suites of the Hotel Giardino Ascona are bright, modern and yet unbelievably cozy.  Some have views of the Ticino mountains, others of the garden and the waterlily pond.  High quality materials, summery colors and dark wood flooring bring the natural world inside, while open, airy layouts allow guests to relax and rest their senses.
