Modern love • Millennial luxury comes alive at this Patricia Urquiola designed award-winner where the most luxurious of the thirty suites feature The Penthouse, a lake view showstopper with its own private terrace and garden retreat. Why would you ever want to leave your private penthouse? A cruise on the lake aboard two all-wood yachts, also designed by Urquiola, of course. Or hike along forested hills along the lakeshore. There’s also the enticing offerings of Chef Raffaele Lenzi to coax you out with simple, imaginative twists of your favourite Italian classics at Michelin-starred Ristorante Berton Al Lago. And just in case you can’t get enough of the cuisine, partake in a cooking class and wine tasting to bring the region’s romance home with you. Unique interiors feature architecture as art, so everyday design elements bring joy, including gorgeous, sculptural architectural details like the hotel’s Jenga-inspired spiral staircase, a twist to mid-century modern. Botanist Patrick Blanc joined the party to create intricate vertical gardens and awesome sculptures, living works of art––le Mirroir Vert du Lac, Le Canyon and Les Racines Echasseesm––the world’s only tryptic exhibition of Blanc’s artwork.
