Il Sereno Hotel by Patricia Urquiola
Discover the modern allure and sophisticated architecture and interiors of Il Sereno Hotel: a new luxurious hotel located in the iconic destination of Lake Como and designed by award-winning designer Patricia Urquiola.
Il Sereno is the first contemporary luxury hotel in the iconic destination of the Lake Como, in contrast to the classical designs that can be found around the Lake. The hotel is the new-in precious gem of the Contreras family, who owns the Sereno Hotels Group, brand specialized in high level boutique hotels.
Designed by renewed award-winning Milan-based architect and designer Patricia Urquiola, the hotel features 30 over-sized suites, all with their own furnished terraces and lake views. Modern and custom furnishings created by Urquiola complete the elegant and sophisticated design, with understated earthy tones of grey and walnut with touches of blue and green hues to incorporate the colors found in the surroundings of the iconic Italian Lake.
Guests can uncover hidden passageways along the garden for calm strolls and enjoy walks to the historic close Villa Pliniana. At the center of the hotel’s main garden a 60 foot infinity pool allows guests to literally float above Lake Como surrounded by a broad sun-deck and bar where they can relax or enjoy light bites and refreshments. Adjacent to the pool is a small beach that offers guests direct access to the lake.
Decorated Milan restaurateur and Michelin star chef, Andrea Berton, is at the helm of the hotel’s signature restaurant, Berton Al Lago, and rounding out the all-star team, acclaimed botanist Patrick Blanc contributed his signature vertical botanical gardens throughout the property, including a spectacular “green sculpture” work of art.
The restaurant has a large outdoor terrace right on the lake, in addition to a section that is built over the water inside the centuries old boat house and foundation over which the new Il Sereno was built.
