Yacht-inspired luxury on Lake Lugano

There may not be a more aptly named hotel than Switzerland’s The VIEW Lugano. Perched on a verdant green hilltop overlooking the brilliant blue Lake Lugano, the secluded boutique hotel could easily be mistaken for a multi-million-dollar mansion. And with personalized amenities (including your choice of pillows, sheets and fragrance) and a complimentary electric car to use during your stay, The VIEW Lugano just might feel like home, too.

A yacht-inspired design endeavors to keep interiors simple so that the stellar lake vistas take center stage at every turn. Pale marine teak, glass and an antibacterial, stone-like material called krion dominate the building’s design in undulating patterns in a deliberate nod to the sea. Minimalist furnishings and geometric elements further emphasize the all-suite hotel’s modern superyacht aesthetic.

Style meets substance in the high-end hotel’s service. From your arrival experience to your final breakfast, every moment is carefully choreographed to ensure a seamless stay.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Thanks to The VIEW Lugano’s complimentary fleet of eco-friendly e-bikes and electric Smart cars, you can get around the region with ease.
  • Soak up lake views everywhere on the property, from the 18 suites to the TreCinqueZero Terrace. Be sure to admire the vistas from the top-floor pool, which is accompanied by a large vitality pool and hot tub.
  • You’ll want to spend plenty of time luxuriating at The VIEW Spa, where chocolate-themed treatments and a sensational salt room offer unique ways to unwind.
  • The VIEW Fine Dining focuses on multi-course menus inspired by the Dolomites region. Savor seasonal dishes like roasted lamb dumplings, beef ribs seasoned with wild herbs, and black-truffle-accented pigeon with a bright wild black currant sauce.
  • Breakfast in bed can be an everyday indulgence at The VIEW Lugano. The onsite restaurant serves complimentary breakfast, but the meal can also be delivered to your room for no extra charge.

The Rooms

  • A blend of woods and neutral tones keeps suites sleek and cozy. The subdued color palette also keeps the focus on those gorgeous lake views.

  • All 18 suites feature spacious balconies with plush seating so you can watch the sunrise over breakfast in privacy.
  • An elongated layout means all accommodations boast vistas of Lake Lugano that can be enjoyed from your bed, balcony or tub. The furniture is strategically laid out so you can take in the water from any angle.
