In what could be a very promising luxury hotel option for Italy, Mandarin Oriental is taking over management of the CastaDiva Resort & Spa on Lake Como.
The property will be rebranded as Mandarin Oriental, Lake Como in spring 2019 following a refurbishment.
This will be Mandarin Oriental’s first resort in western Europe and will complement the existing Milan hotel. According to the press release:
“Located on the shores of Lake Como, and surrounded by lush botanic parkland, the resort is a landmark of historic importance, comprising 76 spacious rooms and suites housed in nine villas, dating from the 19th Century. Two of the villas will be bookable in their entirety giving guests their own private retreat. Almost all accommodation has lake views that can be enjoyed from either a balcony or terrace. The resort features four restaurants and bars, including a lakeside terrace for al fresco dining, a large spa with an indoor swimming pool and an outdoor floating pool on the lake. There is also a variety of social and meeting facilities in the resort’s grounds.
Lake Como has been a popular travel destination for centuries, and is regarded as one of the most beautiful resort areas in northern Italy. The lake is surrounded by villas, gardens and villages and offers visitors a wealth of scenic views, hiking trails, boating and other water activities. It is easily accessed from Milan Malpensa airport.”
