Looking back to the time when I was at this hotel made me smile. This was by far, the most romantic hotel that my boyfriend has ever booked for us.

This small boutique hotel tucked away in Gandria, away from the mainstream touristic parts in Lugano is absolutely perfect for honeymooners and couples.

We arrived at the hotel by a ship ride (more romantic than arriving by bus or taxi isnt it?). U can arrange with the hotel such that the ship will stop to alight you right in front of the hotel instead of the usual fixed stops.

This hotel is run by a lady so you get very personalised service rather than the usual mainstream hotel staff kind of service.

Check-in was fuss-free and we were served a welcome drink upon arrival.

Our room was located at the 2nd floor. We had 2 balconies!! One was big enough for us to camp outdoors or lay a mattress to lie under the stars!

It was a very beautiful sight in the morning to just open up your door to the balcony and see the boats or ship that pass by while you are just lazing around in your room or reading the papers at the balcony.

The room was very well furnished in a Victorian/ Baroque/ Renaissance kind of style which I absolutely loved. I am a sucker for sofas, bed frames and curtains with matching textile.

It was very quiet in the hotel. You can be totally lost in your own world in this hotel. There were few other couples whom we saw during breakfast and dinner. Like I said, this hotel is perfect for couples.

Breakfast spread was generous, you get bread, condiments, cereals, cold cuts, eggs and you can take with you a pot of tea. Theres juice, water, hot chocolate & coffee as well.

We also had dinner on our last evening at the hotel. Portion was generous as well.

I definitely enjoyed my stay here and would look forward to coming back again!
