Right on time for the start of spring, interior designer Carlo Rampazzi has created new designs for 30 rooms and suites at the luxury hotel Eden Roc on Lago Maggiore. In doing so he has attached particular importance to incorporating existing furniture and creating a harmonious overall impression by adding a fresh dash of colour. The star architect from Ascona has ushered in the next era with his new design: elegant lakeside lifestyle and chilled-out savoir vivre now take on a whole new sense of relaxed, upbeat serenity. The modern standards meet the demands of even the most discerning globetrotters.
In some suites the layouts have been expanded, thereby optimising guests’ sense of living space. The bathrooms have been fitted with beige Sicis mosaic along with Imperial White granite. The plan is to extend this new look as part of another stage of refurbishment next winter.
Repair work in the pool area has also been completed: this was necessary due to the flooding that occurred last November.
The new rooms can be booked directly through the hotel website. You will also find attractive offers for a short break during the Ticino spring at www.edenroc.ch.
