The Giardino really stands out. Best in class food, amazing breakfast buffet, great facilities such as pool (indoor and outdoor), gym and soccer field. You also can rent bikes for free to discover the lakeside of Ascona. It just takes you 20 minutes from the hotel to Ascona. Their concierge can organise any kind of table a the hot spot...

We visited this superb lake town in the second half of September, 2016 which is just the beginning of Autumn. The Giardino Hotel was just fabulous in every respect. However a special mention and appreciation of the Concierge service is a must.

This wonderful hotel simply wreaks of class. Comfortable, friendly and in a superb spot sandwiched between the town and a golf course. The food was fabulous and the whole experience was perfectly memorable.

Beautiful location on quaint Ascona. Excellent service, you cannot overstate this. The food was extraordinary. Next to a golf club. The location is nice but not particularly set to go for a walk and run into restaurants as it is a good two miles from downtown. Luxurious and romantic.

This hotel is fantastic. Since my stay in this hotel in Ascona, I stayed at their other hotel by the lake in Minusio and I can safely say this chain deserves more praise and attention. Such an amazing example of hospitality! Staff is extraordinary, food is great quality and just generally everything here screams taste, quality and tranquility. Perfectly located...

The name that now unites all Giardino Retreats and Resorts was born here.

Breathe, relax, stroll, chill, move, marvel or simply enjoy - this Soul Retreat provides undiluted relaxation with character.

The culinary highlight is undisputably the Ecco restaurant which has been awarded with two Michelin stars. It stands for outstanding aroma cuisine and puristic intensity, which is restaged every day through the inspired ideas of Executive Chef Rolf Fliegauf. The dipiù Spa promises a world of vitality, beauty and equilibrium and offers ample space to find peace to strengthen body and soul. With its products and treatments dipiù proves that it stands for quality, authenticity and sustainability. ... more   less
