Hotel description

This enchanting hotel beside Lake Maggiore is set in an old villa with a huge garden and offers 72 rooms, junior suites and suites. It is the original character of the whole property that makes any stay here unforgettable. Both the interiors and the garden are really charming and offer plenty of quiet spots to relax in, like beside the romantic lily pond with adjoining swimming pool. Bring your tastebuds with you otherwise you’ll be missing out the best bit of all: The multi-award-winning cuisine from head chef Rolf Fliegauf has been a popular choice on the Swiss and international gourmet scene for years. Last but not least there is also a small but lovely spa as well as a kids’ club, making it ideal for a family vacation.
Luxury: Personal service & lots of details
Guests staying at the Hotel Giardino Ascona can look forward to all-around excellent service - grand, discreet and at the same time very personal. The rooms and suites have been decorated in either a classic or modern style. It’s the little details that lend the hotel its luxurious feel, like home-made sweets at bedtime, herbal teas from the garden, free bicycle hire, as well as very friendly assistance when planning activities outside the hotel.
Gourmet: Natural taste and professional wine recommendations
The gourmet restaurant Ecco is run by master chef Rolf Fliegauf, who has been awarded with two Michelin stars. At the age of 31, the head chef is the youngest two-star chef in Switzerland. His cuisine is innovative and creative, with the focus on the natural taste of the ingredients. Expert wine recommendations make the perfect accompaniment to his culinary masterpieces (many of which almost look too good to eat!) You will also find a well-stocked bar (also with smaller food selection) and in summer a pool bar.
Boutique: Small hotel with individual charm
The intimate atmosphere of a centuries-old villa is what gives the Giardino its special charm. Despite the professional feel a very personal, almost private atmosphere dominates. Nice little touches are what make any stay here, and special requests are very welcome. The individual design and decor of the rooms underlines the boutique style of the hotel.
Eating & drinking: Gourmet cuisine all day long
In the morning guests can enjoy a diverse breakfast buffet where you can also order pancakes or eggs of your choice as extras. During the day the restaurant Aphrodite serves antipasti and light meals. In the evening you have the choice between the Aphrodite (open daily 7-10pm) and the gourmet restaurant Ristorante Ecco (Wednesday to Sunday 7pm-12am).
Leisure & sports: Wellness, fitness, golf and water sports
The hotel facilities include a small spa with several saunas and treatments using products from the in-house range DIPIÙ as well as Aveda. The spa also offers medical Ayurveda and has gym that you can use as you please. If you fancy a stylish cruise on Lake Maggiore, the concierge organize for you to hire the hotel’s own designer yacht (909 Benaco by Frauscher) including skipper. The concierge will also book you a round of golf at discounted prices at the 18-hole course nearby.
Location: between the lake and town
The Hotel Giardino is surrounded by a beautiful, park-like garden on the outskirts of Ascona, just 5 minutes’ walk from Lake Maggiore.
