A distinguished palace from the late 19th century in a magnificent location on the waterfront that offers spectacular views of the beautiful landscape
Dating back to 1887, this boutique property facing Lake Lugano within walking distance from the town center, was originally known as the Hotel Splendide; the ‘Royal’ was only added in 1924 as a nod to the many royal guests, including Vittorio Emanuele di Savoia, and Maria Queen of Romania. Today, the hotel retains a regal air in the marble lobby and the Presidential suite, complete with stunning frescoes, a Murano chandelier, and views to the Alps, and yet offers all the contemporary amenities one expects from a luxury hotel.
A state-of-the-art personalized service is provided by the well-trained, skilled staff who quietly ensure the guests experience through courtesy, dedication, and attention to detail.
FOOD & DRINK:
La Veranda Restaurant: The Restaurant La Veranda with its spectacular view over Lake Ceresio, serves light Italian cuisine where nature and the lake are a constant and inspiring presence. During the summer months, guests can enjoy outside dining on the terrace overlooking the lake.
The Emerald Bar breathes the cozy ambiance, perfect for a drink with live music.
Set in a privileged location on Lugano’s promenade, the Splendide Royal ensures spectacular views over the lake and the Alps, while being just a few minutes’ walk from the city center and the famous Via Nassa shopping street.
