The first time we visited Lugano, we stayed at a hotel right on the lake. We enjoyed it then as we watched the August 1 fireworks. This time, Villa Sassa became our Lugano destination as family connected us with Roland Henkel, the Director of the hotel. The hotel was a hit with the family that we decided to stay another night. Our grand daughter was delighted to see that in their huge family room, she has her own separate bedroom. Our rooms are very spacious with lots of storage for long stay, a kitchen, a living room, a lounge and just outside is the swimming pool. The decor, though for others was a bit outdated, made us recall our own versions of the 90's. It simply added to our enjoyment.
On our first evening, we went for drinks in the restaurant-bar and enjoyed the spectacular view of Lugano which we failed to see last time not having stayed at a higher location. For dinner, we walked to town and it was easy given the age range of our family present at 13-69. We enjoyed breakfast at the restaurant overlooking Lugano. Being a spa, breakfast has its good selection of healthy options. The full blooms of the begonias in the garden added to the beauty of the place.
Younger members of the family really enjoyed the pool. Next time, we plan to stay a bit longer and try some of the offers at the Spa.
What we notice is that the staff quietly but effectively run the hotel and gave us a very enjoyable stay.
