An Incredible New Site on the Edge of Lake Como

Following the renovation of the historic lakefront property, the new Mandarin Oriental, Lago di Como opens its doors. The hotel is surrounded by natural beauty, enjoying a private, serene setting on the sunlit shores of the Lake and is nestled within verdant botanical gardens. The 19th Century Villa Roccabruna is at the heart of the resort and features 21 rooms, 52 suites and two private, stand alone villas. Acclaimed interior designer Eric Egan has overseen the refresh of the resort's accommodation and public areas, creating a sense of modern Italian elegance and subtle oriental charm. The lush botanical gardens that surround the resort are home to more than 50 different species of plants, trees and flowers. Italian landscape designer Patrizia Pozzi chose materials and styles that refer to the neoclassical elements of the original Villa and gardens, creating an inspiring setting that provides places for private relaxation and escape.

Acclaimed Executive Chef Vincenzo Guarino and his experienced team oversee the restaurants and bars, offering an authentic cuisine based on traditional Mediterranean dishes, inspired by local seasonal produce. CO.MO Bar & Bistrot, with its spacious terrace overlooking the lake, is the ideal place for informal dining at any time of day, and for a traditional Italian aperitivo or after dinner drinks created by expert mixologists. Contemporary fine dining restaurant, L'ARIA, is tucked away within a lakefront building in the heart of the gardens, serving Vincenzo Guarino's creative expression of Mediterranean cuisine. Extending out from the shoreline, the resort's swimming pool and spacious sundeck float on the lake. Guests can bask on sun loungers by the pool from mid morning to sunset and enjoy refreshing drinks and snacks at the Pool Bar throughout the day.
