Il Sereno, designed by Patricia Urquiola, brings a new era of luxury to the banks of Italy’s Iconic Lake Como
This sophisticated, luxurious hotel opened this year to be one of the most elegant and wanted destinations in Italy. Il Sereno was awarded with the title of “Most Anticipated New Luxury Hotel Opening in 2016” and it features 30 oversized suites all with their own furnished terraces and impressive lake views.
Patricia Urquiola and her team truly worked hard on this project and envisioned every detail of the hotel, from the architecture to the interior design. Design customized furniture, rugs, wall coverings, lighting and even foulards for the staff, Urquiola created a contemporary hotel contrasting the classical designs around Lake Como.
The 30 spacious rooms 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.
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.
Michelin star chef, Andrea Berton, is at the helm of the hotel’s signature restaurant, Ristorante Berton Al Lago, featuring an exquisite menu inspired by the region.
