Spring is in the air and coming soon to Mandarin Oriental, Lago di Como. This charming five-star resort, nestled on the shores of beautiful Lake Como, has some attractive enhancements to its accommodation, gardens, dining and wellness activities.
Renowned interior designer Eric Egan and landscape architect Patrizia Pozzi have deployed their talents to continue surprising and delighting guests. And to celebrate these new heights of luxurious living, the resort is offering a New Season, New Sensations package that includes luxury accommodation, dining and spa benefits and a complimentary car transfer, allowing guests to indulge and relax in style.
The jewel in the crown of the resort is the recently renovated Panoramic Suite with private swimming pool. This delightful and spacious 116-square-metre suite includes a comfortable and luxurious bedroom, expansive bathroom, large living area, private kitchen with dining area, and a guest bathroom. French doors fill the suite with natural light and open onto a large private terrace with unparalleled views of the lake.
The resort’s restaurants are another cause to celebrate. The 2020 Michelin Guide for Italy recently awarded one Michelin star to L˜ARIA, run by Chef Vincenzo Guarino, only seven months after opening.
Immersed in the lush botanical park of the resort, with a wide terrace for al fresco dining, the lakefront L˜ARIA serves an authentic Mediterranean cuisine based on traditional dishes. With an open-plan kitchen, guests can watch Chef Guarino and his team weave their magic. There’s even a Chef’s table that allows four guests to be front-row spectators.
Another eatery with a stunning view from the lakeside terrace is CO.MO Bar & Bistrot. Ideal for informal drinks and dining at any time of day, the restaurant has introduced a daily pizza menu and signature pizzas by Chef Guarino. Also new this year are special evenings dedicated to the art of mixology, with live music entertainment to match the unforgettable sunsets and original drinks.
And there’s more news from The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Lago di Como, the resort’s renowned haven of holistic wellbeing. Making the most of the stunning and graceful view of Italy’s iconic lake, guests can enjoy relaxing yoga and tai chi interludes or even venture out on personalised hikes along the panoramic hills surrounding the lake.
For guests wishing to entertain, the resort’s Villa del Lago is the perfect venue for any kind of event, providing plenty of privacy and sweeping views of the lake.
Also revitalised are Mandarin Oriental, Lago di Como’s sustainability initiatives. The hotel is fully supportive of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group’s pledge to eliminate all single-use plastic across its global portfolio and is busy sourcing viable eco-alternatives. In addition, the resort has two electric Tesla X cars on the property. The vehicles are available for short-distance transfers, exploring the surrounding towns and villages, or quick trips into the city of Como.
