The first new hotel in the region in decades features 30 suites and was deisgned by Milan-based architect and designer Patricia Urquiola. Il Sereno is the third property to join the Sereno Hotels portfolio after Le Sereno Hotel & Villas in St. Barthélemy and Villa Pliniana, also located on Lake Como.
The design-based hotel is home to a signature restaurant, Ristorante Berton Al Lago, which features a menu inspired by the local region.
"We are thrilled to open the doors of the much-anticipated Il Sereno Lago di Como," said Luis Contreras, owner of Sereno Hotels. "This project has been a true labour of love between Sereno Hotels and Patricia Urquiola; and we are excited to introduce an entirely new design concept to Lake Como.
"We know devotees of Sereno Hotels and new guests alike will enjoy the exquisite design coupled with unparalleled attention to detail, amenities and relaxed service our brand is known for."
