“Beautiful Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

We were greeted very warmly. Due to an error that was completely our own fault, some adjustments were required to our reservation but these were made with a minimum amount of fuss and very quickly. My husband and I were travelling with our ten year old son and wanted a two bedroom suite so we reserved the Zermatt suite. It was perfect. The view was beyond breathtaking. The room was pristine and had lovely contemporary decor. It was on the top floor of the main building and was very quiet with two private balconies. We had dinner two nights in the restaurant and the food was exceptional. The breakfasts are also wonderful. The spa facilities looked very nice but we only had time to enjoy the indoor pool. The drive to the hotel was a small challenge but manageable with a GPS and someone who is used to European roads behind the wheel. I would highly recommend this gem for someone wanting a location out of the town centre.

Room Tip: We loved the main building

Stayed one night on our 40th anniversary European trip and I can't speak highly enough of the staff and the hotel.We had a junior suite so not cheap but well worth it, the staff made a special effort in the room rose petals ,champagne, chocolate cake, a wonderful view from our balcony .our only regret we could only stay one night on the trip and didn't have time to enjoy the Spa etc which also looked great. We will definitely go back and stay longer and I don't like heights so for me to to do the twisty drive to the hotel again it must be good!!

Room Tip: View of the Lake.

If you need some days to relax and to enjoy the countryside, this is your place.

The hotel is still close to Lugano so you can plan your day easily.

We got a very big room with great view to the valley and the lake. Everything was clean and perfect.
We used the service restaurant everyday for breakfast and dinner and although it was a little bit expensive the quality and the taste were really good.
Staff were really nice and supportive..

We also used the SPA: the swimming pools and the rest of amenities were really good. The down part was the massage I got. I thought it was going to be something special (because of the price and the place itself) but it was just a normal massage that you can get everywhere else.

Beautiful modern hotel in older hotel shell. Stunning views of Lake Lugano from public areas and terrace of our room. Greeted with a glass of wine which was much appreciated after the treacherous drive up the hill to the hotel.
Excellent, if pricey restaurant. Wonderful pools (3).
Isolated location 25 minutes slow twisty drive from Lugano. Don't think of staying there without a car or if you feel uncomfortable driving along narrow twisty roads. Limited food alternatives in the vicinity of the hotel.
Airconditioning seemed to be adjusted by master switch in the middle of the night.

Room Tip: Chose room with terrace & lake view

It's hard to find a hotel in the Tessin area which is a true 5*. The Kurhaus blew me away. Honestly i didn't expect much, but the minute we checked my 3 day mini vacation started. Fast and friendly check in! We had a very nice room with a stunning view! Great breakfast, nice Spa area, nice inside and outside pool area! Don't you are high up in the mountains, so there are not a lot of restaurant choices and the once with are there close at 10 PM. Besides hiking, biking and relaxing there is not much to do up there! It's a quiet place and you will LOVE IT!!! I can't wait to return next time I am in Switzerland!

We spent 5 days at Kurhaus Cademario in the beginning of July 2014.

Booking a room with lake view is a must – the elevated location gives this hotel a magnificent view of Lake Lugano as the attached photos show.

We enjoyed 4 varied à la carte dinners at the hotel restaurant where a high quality breakfast buffet is also served. The restaurant staff was always very friendly and attentive. Do not miss the excellent cappuccino/latte.

A fitness room is available for those who want to exercise, and the large DOT.SPA area provides many different pools and saunas as well as a wide range of treatments. It is a good idea to book eg. massages in advance.

We would love to come back to Kurhaus Cademario for another memorable stay.

This was the last of our hotels on our Switzerland trip and as they say..saved the best for last. Room overlooks Lugano and the lake with fantastic views. Milan can be seen in the evening. The entire hotel and spa is very customer focused and will take care of any request. The spa and outdoor pool are as advertised, food is excellent and rooms very comfortable (bath is a bit small) but would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for lake view...well worth it.
