The expected project aims for a sustainable hotel offering and family lifestyle that enhances the living experience respecting the environment. The project focuses on the aesthetic, historical and cultural character of the surrounding community, while creating a new, vibrant and contemporary place, authentic and fully embedded in the locality.
Pristine, natural surroundings, an array of exhilarating activities and fascinating cultural experiences are all within easy reach, providing the best of resort-style living in a sanctuary of tranquility and beauty.
Wellness & Spa
Saying goodbye to the noise and lights of the city is easy. The neat, cultured landscapes of Ascona change into untamed mountain forests where you will find meditative silence and the fresh mossy fragrance of the gently swaying larch trees.
Located in Ticino, Switzerland, the south-oriented resort is superbly situated and offers a stunning panoramic view over Lago Maggiore. The region is a year-round tourist destination and boasts diverse sports and culture activities ranging from skiing to golfing, hiking and boating. The Cardada Gondola is just 300 m away and the Locarno film festival is an annual highlight not to be missed.

Our project will show that a leisure lifestyle can enhance the living experience without compromising or disrespecting the environment. Performance is measured in terms of environmental values, social development and the appropriateness of the project meeting the expectations of users and public interest. Focusing on the aesthetic, historical and cultural character of the surrounding community, we take measures to preserve it through design and development, while creating a new, vibrant and contemporary place.
The development will implement and engage in practices that are financially, socially, and environmentally sustainable. For this we are fully committed to support the preservation of natural and cultural heritage and the local community.
Being located in a place of great natural beauty, our project aims to protect and preserve the bio-diversity, as well as using local produce. Besides this, we will support initiatives in our local community, whilst recognizing that sustainability is a continuous process we are committed to now and in the future.
