Villa Orselina
Lake Maggiore, Switzerland
Scenic mountain views • Uninterrupted sea views • Perfect for proposals
Villa Orselina is a luxury spa hotel in Ticino with an enviable location high on the hillside above Lake Maggiore.
Combining Swiss hospitality with an Italian sense of dolce far niente, this wonderful hotel is perfect for a romantic break surrounded by the beautiful scenery around Locarno.

From the minute you step inside the hotel, you will feel your cares start to slip away. The luxurious accommodation is contemporary and inviting, and you can choose from 28 tastefully furnished rooms and suites.

Crisp white linen, soothing pale décor and wide panoramic windows overlooking the lake landscape below make the rooms feel peaceful and give you a sense of calm.

During your stay, the exceptional hospitality from Villa Orselina’s courteous staff will ensure you want for nothing.

A highlight of this luxury hotel in Locarno is the superb spa and wellness facilities, which have been specially designed to offer you all the pampering your heart could desire.

Float away on the summer breeze in the outdoor pool surrounded by beautiful views, or relax in the steam bath or Finnish sauna.

The Spa has a wonderful selection of high-end beauty treatments and spa therapies to help you feel revitalised and refreshed.

For more active holiday, the hotel has a tennis court and is near several golf courses.

Once you are thoroughly revived, your thoughts might turn to dinner, and Villa Orselina doesn’t disappoint. The flagship Il Ristorante offers the delicious Italian creations of head chef Riccardo Scarmaccio, who recently received 14 Gault Millau points.

A light, bright dining room with lovely views and a lovingly created wine list will make this a dining experience to remember.

More casual choices are available at La Pergola, which occupies a pretty setting beside the pool surrounded by subtropical gardens.

Be certain to round off your day in the elegantly furnished Grand Bar, where you can relax and enjoy a well-mixed drink.

Generally good. Overall smiling personel.+

Good reception at arrival and departure too. Restaurant was perfect in service, menus and quality. Breakfast was nice. The gentle lady in the spa (sorry, forgotten her name) was very professional and sweet. Housekeeping was discreet and nice but I regret that the last night my bed wasn't made as the other nights. I was asked if I needed anything to which I said no, thinking it was for the towels, soap, shampoo etc. I was handed over the program of the next day with the satisfaction card. I've been in another 5* hotel and the amenities were more.. just more in quantity. I had one bartender who was civil but not really nice. The second bartender was very nice and customer oriented.

A magical place+

My husband and I stayed in Villa Orselina for two nights on our way from Brussels to Ancona. We did not really know what to expect but from the moment we walked in and found ourselves speechless over the stunning views of the lake to the time of our check out and the warm smiles that bode us good bye, we were overwhelmed by the attention to the detail and the warmth of the staff, the quality of the accomodation and the beauty of the location. They all contributed to making our stay magical. We are already considering returning for a longer stay. Everything you might need and more. magical
