About Swiss Diamond SPA Hotel Lugano
Set directly on the shores of Lake Lugano, Swiss Diamond SPA Hotel Lugano resides in Morcote, known for its glorious, sunny climate and its enchanting Italian Alps vistas. The five-star hotel is meticulous in detail, elegantly designed with Italian architectural elements and superbly outfitted with world-class comfort and amenities. Each of the 84 guest accommodations face Lake Ceresio, Mount Generoso or the property’s lush gardens, and gourmands will enjoy lakefront dining while feasting on Mediterranean cuisine. A pristine spa and wellness area complements the relaxed setting, as does an outside terrace with a swimming pool and garden area and a solarium, overlooking the water. Five minutes from the city center, Swiss Diamond runs its own shuttle to Lugano and is steps from the hiking trails of the surrounding mountains.
The setting amidst the Italian Alps and the shores of Lake Ceresio is a sensory pleasure for body and mind and immediately puts visitors in a tranquil state of peace. Relaxation and the chance to renew are discovered as well at the 300-square-meter SPA and 150-square-meter wellness area, which is stylishly designed with lovely mosaics. Wellness amenities like an indoor pool, sauna, Turkish bath, hammam and gym entice guests; in addition, a lakeside swimming pool and solarium area provide an alfresco spa experience during the summer months.
Therapeutic services at the five treatment-room spa and Diamond Medical Aesthetic Center include anti-aging, bio-energizing and vitamin facials; reflexology; LPG treatments; electrostimulation and peeling wraps; and massage modalities, including hot stone, anti-cellulitis and shiatsu. Nail and haircare services are available in the salon.
Guests as young as three are welcome in the spa, though those up to the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
