Lobby

Sereno Lago Di Como is one of the most talked about hotel openings that is set to debut in Europe in spring 2016. This ultra-luxe hotel is currently being built on the shores of Lake Como, Italy, following the success of Le Sereno St Barth. Sereno Largo di Como is being positioned as the most posh hotel to be built on the lake, which has views of the southern Italian Alps.

The hotel will have a contemporary, relaxed feel and will be created by Milan-Based designer Patricia Urquiola. She also designs for B&B Italia, Baccarat, BMW, Louis Vuitton and other luxury brands.

The pool

Of course, since the hotel will sit on the shore of Lake Como, it will have its own docking facilities and custom boats for transportation around the lake. If this hotel follows the popularity of the St. Barth’s location, we suggest booking one of the 30 oversized suites well in advance. Looking for the ultimate in Italian opulence? We hear the penthouse will have a private terrace, garden and rooftop lap pool.

Those not booking the penthouse can still enjoy the 60-foot-long infinity pool that will be located just in front of the lake. The pool will be surrounded by a sundeck where food and drink will be served, natch; it's also a neat place for weddings, we say. For more outdoor fun, Sereno will also have gardens designed with secret passage ways. 

The chef of the restaurant hasn’t been announced yet, but we believe the Italian dishes will impress with ingredients being sourced from the Valtellina and Piemonte region.
