Lake Como Mandarin Oriental opening spring 2019

Resort on the shores of Italian lake will have meeting facilities, four restaurants and a lakeside terrace.

The Mandarin Oriental, Lake Como will open in spring 2019 following a complete refurbishment of the current hotel’s facilities.

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group is taking over what is currently the CastaDiva Resort & Spa on Lake Como in Italy.

Located on the shores of Lake Como, and surrounded by lush botanic parkland, the resort comprises 76 rooms and suites housed in nine villas, dating from the 19th century.

There will also be meeting facilities in the grounds.

"We are delighted to be extending the Mandarin Oriental brand to the shores of Lake Como which has long been a destination of choice for luxury travellers," said James Riley, group chief executive of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.

Almost all accommodation has lake views and 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.

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.
