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.
