With the only private beach on Lake Maggiore, the Hotel Splendid stands out from all the many other first-class hotels around the lake. But this is far from the only reason why you’ll enjoy a stay at this historic luxury hotel. Housed in an attractive, palatial building right on the lake shore, it offers 102 rooms and suites in 6 categories with classic Italian furnishings as well as a modern equipped health club, a restaurant with panoramic-view terrace and a bar overlooking the lake. The atmosphere is characterized by the long history of the building, which began in 1873. Even in its early days the Hotel Splendid boasted a fashionable Italian style and a certain touch of glamor that has remained to this day. After you’ve received a warm welcome from the uniformed doorman, you’ll walk into a mirrored lobby with sparkling chandelier. Dark wood, leather, marble and silk fabrics convey a timeless elegance. Hotel by the lake: Right on the lake shore
The location is unbeatable. The lake steals the show and can be seen from many of the rooms, the hotel terrace and from the beach. The cherry on the cake at the Splendid Hotel is a small, well-kept sandy beach. In summer there’s an almost Caribbean atmosphere here under large palm trees and white parasols. A private jetty extends a fair way out into the lake and can be used for bathing or boat moorings. Romantic hotel: Historic chic & unforgettable moments
For a few romantic days away by a lake, a luxury hotel is the perfect accommodation. From the standard category to the Presidential Suite all rooms boast a historic, chic style. The higher categories have more space, but also offer excellent furnishings, like four-poster beds and upholstered seating, silk wallpaper, paintings and fabulous marble bathrooms. Most rooms also have a balcony with unobstructed views over Lake Maggiore. The hotel’s gourmet restaurant and lakeside terrace guarantee a romantic stay. From here, or from the beach, you might even get lucky and experience the fantastic sunset over the lake. Food & drink: Exquisite breakfast & gourmet dining with lake view
Breakfast is a large gourmet buffet that offers everything you could wish for. The buffet is available between 7 and 10am. For lunch (12-2.30pm) and dinner (7-9.30pm) the hotel restaurant serves gourmet Mediterranean cuisine in an elegant dining room or outside on the lakeside terrace. For an aperitif or nightcap there is a lounge bar with an elegant but informal atmosphere and also a beautiful panoramic terrace. Leisure & sports: Pool, beach, spa and water sports
If you prefer a soft green lawn to a sandy beach, you’ll love the lush garden with large pool, sunloungers and parasols. In addition the Hotel Splendid offers its guests a relaxing Roman-style spa with steam room, salt sauna, Jacuzzi and various treatment rooms. A small but well-equipped fitness room is also available. Why not try out one of the hotel’s canoes, pedal boats or small rowing boats, or practise your serve on the hotel’s own tennis court. Location: On the southern edge of Baveno
The Hotel Splendid is situated at the southern edge of Baveno on the road that hugs the shore of Lake Maggiore and extends to Stresa. Surrounded by a beautiful garden, it directly overlooks the lake and the Borromean Islands.
