Located in the hills that curve around this pastel-hued Swiss town, The View Lugano is a boutique hotel overlooking the mountain-rimmed Lake Lugano. A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the property’s chic interiors evoke the sensation of being aboard a luxury yacht — think full-length windows, gleaming teak floors, handmade furniture, wave-like lines and nautical accents. A large wooden terrace, designed to give the impression of a ship’s bridge, is the perfect spot to sit back, relax and soak up the sights.

Each of the hotel’s 18 suites opens out on to a deck offering views across the bay. Within the rooms, the attention to detail is second-to-none, from chromotherapy showers and iPads to cashmere throws and a choice of room fragrances. To truly switch off, guests should make a beeline for The View Spa, where they’ll find a relaxation area, Himalayan salt room, Kneipp circuit and two pools, plus a sauna, whirlpool bath and hammam. The menu features a range of targeted treatments, from bespoke facials and body wraps to jetlag-busting massages and hydrotherapy.

A state-of-the-art fitness centre offers the latest equipment as well as virtual training options, kickboxing training, and yoga and Pilates classes (aquatic versions are also available). For those looking to explore the local area, The View Lugano offers electric smart cars and e-bicycles. Must-dos include a visit to the Ticino wineries and a bike ride around the lake.

Featuring an open kitchen and a wine cellar packed with the finest vintages, The View Lugano showcases the culinary art of the Michelin-starred, Milan-based Innocenti Evasioni restaurant. The men behind the menu — owners Eros Picco and Tommaso Arrigoni — create traditional Italian fare with a modern twist using only the freshest of seasonal produce.

The View Lugano acts as a window to the world: Paris, London and Venice and many other destinations are under an hour’s flight from Lugano Airport. With its convenient location and excellent business facilities — including a meeting room that seats 70 — this is the ideal destination for corporate travellers.
