Despite having been a world-class destination since the Roman nobles began building vacation villas overlooking Lake Como, the ancient city of Como has never been the site of a five-star hotel. That void will be filled with the June 6, 2018 debut of the Vista Palazzo Lago di Como as the city’s first and only five-star luxury property. The intimate lakeside 18 room and suite hotel in the heart of Como on the city’s majestic waterfront Piazza Cavour, is the result of an 18-month renovation of a romantic looking 19th century Venetian-style palazzo that has long been one of the most photographed structures on Lake Como. It is the latest project by Lario Hotels, the family owned and operated hotel group, which has been delivering the Lake Como experience to guests for more than 90 years.
The accommodations, offering sweeping views of Lake Como, will be characterized by a luxurious residential ambiance, showcasing the best in Italian craftsmanship, such as: the intricate hand-hewn marquetry of the rich indigenous wood floors; the use of Dedar fabrics; the incorporation of several kinds of Italian marble; and the utilization of decorative elements representing the best in Italy’s legendary design aesthetic. They will all boast marble-clad bathrooms with inviting soaking tubs and separate showers. Guests will be able to take advantage of a broad range of services arranged by a personal concierge, including spa treatments, workouts with a personal trainer and meals prepared by a private chef. Should you wish to socialize, the entire penthouse floor will beckon with Ristorante Sottovoce, offering a memorable Italian cuisine experience, a bar and a library, all with unparalleled lake views.
The Vista Palazzo Lago di Como will be the first five-star property in the Lario Hotels’ portfolio, joining three highly rated boutique hotels in and near Como. Vista Palazzo Lago di Como is scheduled to open June 6, 2018 with deluxe double rooms starting at $820 a night; the rate for the 580-square foot top floor Corner Suite with Turkish bath will start at $1292 a night.
