    Resort and SPA with great views


    Nice 4 Star Hotel. Nice big and high ceiling rooms. Friendly staff. Good breakfast buffet. Nice tropical garden with pool.
    Even though it is 4 Star they seem to like kids. Kid corner with quite some toys.

    Unique Quality: The awesome view from the breakfast terrace. You really feel like you are faraway on a holiday...the view is so nice and tropical with palm trees and the lake.

    Directions: A bit outside Locarno. About 10 minutes by bus from train station. They have a shuttle service you can use. Nothing really close by. 10 minute walk to the lake down the hill but then a nice walk way all the way in to Locarno city centre.

Travel Tips for Locarno

Weather forecast: Heavy Rain and Sunshine :)

by sabsi

We woke up in our flat at Thuner See and it was raining heavily. We decided to go to Ticino because we thought it might not rain there.

Well we went on a three hour drive, passed a few mountain passes in the pouring rain and thunderstorms, went through the Gotthard tunnel and expected to come out and the rain had stopped....only to come out of the tunnel and it was the same weather - getting even worse.

When we arrived in Locarno the streets were flooded and we could hardly drive. We went into the carpark and thought we never want to go out here again - came outside ... and it stopped!! Within 5 minutes it was really warm and sunny - and on the radio we heard later that in Locarno there was more rain in 10 mts that day than normally in all August.

Island Palace

by JudyinPA

At Isola Bella there is a palace, once visited by Napoleon. It is located on the high point of the small island with views in all directions. The flower gardens are a "not to be missed". Below the palace are several souvenir stands and restaurants. Boats are available from Stressa or any of the 28 stops along Lake Maggiore.

Movie festival

by ealgisi

For those who like open air theathers, this is something you shouldn't miss.
Every year in the main square, the city organizes the International Movie Festival, with famous authors and famous movies.

Suggestion: book in advance from, tickets and fast sold out.
