Il Sereno brings a new era of luxury to the banks of Italy’s iconic Lake Como. Awarded the title of “Most Anticipated New Luxury Hotel Opening in 2016” by Luxury Travel Advisor magazine, Il Sereno’s ethos of understated elegance presents a freshness to this well-established destination.
The 30 spacious suites, ranging from 40 square meters in size to The Penthouse at 200+ square meters, all make full use of the natural light and awe-inspiring scenery with floor-to-ceiling windows and views of the peaceful waterfront. Keeping with the Sereno promise that there is no substitute for space and a view, this intimate yet sophisticated property complements the breath-taking mountains, and tranquil waters with ease.
Guests can relax at the hotel’s full-service spa, situated under original, century-old arches. The property features a private beach, as well as a dock, allowing guests to arrive via one of the hotel’s boats, custom-built by Ernesto Riva. The 60-foot-long freshwater infinity pool suspended over the lake is without a doubt one of Il Sereno’s show-stopping features, and the large sundeck is perfect for spending a leisurely afternoon under the Italian sun.
Revered Milan-based architect and designer Patricia Urquiola achieves a stylish modern look at Il Sereno, moving away from the Faux Renaissance and Neo Classical designs that dominate the area. The New York Post, who predicted that Il Sereno “will bring a dose of highly contemporary style to the shores of Lake Como”, placed the hotel among the World’s Top 19 Hotels to Visit in 2016. Urquiola worked with the exquisite scenery and complements the natural surroundings with a flawlessly simple, yet contemporary design.
