Grand Hotel des Iles Borromees Spa
Luxury lakeside hotels rarely come as authentic and strikingly palatial as Des Iles Borromees & Spa, found on the shores of Lago Maggiore.
The 19th century heritage of Grand Hotel des Iles Borromees & Spa – a favourite of Ernest Hemingway, no less – is there to be seen in quite literally every aspect of its appearance, design and layout. From the onsite galleries of centuries-old art reproductions, to the Victorian-style glasswork, silk drapes in the suites and vases bursting with seasonal flowers upon every antique sideboard; get ready for a journey into aged Italian splendour.
All Sienna marble, Murano glass chandeliers and wood-framed artworks, the guestrooms and suites evoke the epic grandeur you would expect, with no expense spared on the standard of décor throughout. If cost is no object, the signature suites are well-worth any investment, with their whirlpool bathtubs, private terraces and separate drawing room adding something special, though almost every room at Iles Borromees & Spa offers its own balcony, beautiful views and that same sense of authenticity, found through the carefully constructed interior design and finishing touches of every space.
