    Creating a benchmark for casual luxury in Switzerland with Giardino Lago near Locarno, Giardino Mountain near St. Moritz, and Atlantis by Giardino in Zurich, the boutique Giardino Hotel Group presents Giardino Ascona, a standout retreat committed to charismatic design, casual ambience, and recreational splendor. Located in a spectacular sunny bay of Lake Maggiore along a tranquil parkland setting next to one of Europe’s finest golf courses, Giardino Ascona, with its 54 rooms and 16 suites, is awash in Mediterranean joie de vivre. Here, Tuscan-style villas are surrounded by a garden where the broom blooms in an intensive yellow, the scent of lavender and mimosa sweeps across the green, and water lilies open their blossoms on the lake. This peaceful venue is deliciously augmented by a two-star Michelin restaurant headed by the masterful Executive Chef Rolf Fliegauf and by a world-class dipiù spa offering traditional and Ayurveda cures and therapies that preserve one’s health holistically.

    MADE BY ORIGINALS

    DANIELA AND PHILIPPE FRUTIGER

    The lives of Daniela and Philippe Frutiger have been connected to the Giardino Hotel Group ever since they met at its first property in Ascona in 1994. Together they repositioned and expanded the Swiss hotel brand into a successful business encompassing four hotels and a beauty and cosmetics line, dipìù. Philippe trained as a cook before learning the ropes of the hotel business in his native Switzerland and abroad. His wife Daniela, originally from southern Germany, is a trained beautician and pharmacist, and presides over interior design and spa operations. The Frutigers’ key values—quality of life, sustainability, and service leadership—are exhibited throughout their properties in a fresh interpretation of luxury for the modern traveler.
