    Welcome drink


    Perched 850 metes above sea level, and offering one of the finest wellness and spa experiences in Switzerland, the eminently luxurious Kurhaus Cademario has been attracting guests for over a century. The location is truly breathtaking - Lake Lugano sparkling below, the majestic Malcantone mountains presenting a craggily dramatic backdrop - but its the brilliant spa that really enchants. Spreading over 2,200 square metres, it has everything you need to relax and rejuvenate, and the hotel’s team of wellness experts are on hand to offer everything from beauty treatment to medical massages.

    There’s plenty to do in the surrounding countryside as well, from the cultural highlights of lakeside Lugano to mountainous hikes and forested rambles. In the evening, return for a fabulous Mediterranean-inspired feast at the hotel’s restaurant, which boasts stunning panoramic views. Elegantly sophisticated, Kurhaus Cademario is the ideal Swiss spa getaway, and the perfect alternative to visiting the Italian lakes.

    With a sleekly contemporary design inspired by the elements, Kurhaus’ DOT.Spa will more than satisfy all of your wellness needs. The facilities are truly impressive. If you fancy a swim, take the plunge into the saline contrast pool, or explore the linked indoor and outdoor pools, which feature a waterfall and integrated massage outlets and benches. Afterwards, sweat it out in the Hammam and Turkish steam bath, Finnish sauna or saltwater Tepidarium, or, if you prefer, brave the Frigidarium or ice shower. The Spa’s wellness experts offer a comprehensive range of pampering beauty treatments and rejuvenating massages, using only the finest and most luxurious beauty products.

    Accompany your spa sessions with some bracing fresh air by exploring the surrounding countryside. The Malcantone mountains offer a variety of hikes, from gentle paths threading through ancient chestnut forests, to uphill climbs leading to spectacular views. If you prefer, the hotel has complimentary mountain bikes, as well as guides showing the best routes. If you fancy a bit of culture, take a trip to nearby Lugano. Nestled on the beautiful lake of the same name, it’s long been considered a cultural hub. Take a stroll through the beautiful Belvedere gardens, before popping into Santa Maria degli Angioli for a beautiful Renaissance fresco painted by a student of Leonardo da Vinci.

    Chef extraordinaire Franco Passoni has an infectious passion for his masterful creations at 'La Cucina' and he 'does everything in his power to satisfy customers, not merely feed them'. Inspired by the stunning landscape, he cleverly combines colours and flavours resulting in delicious and authentic Italian dishes, and an excellent international wine list complements the seasonal menu. Dining is an elegant affair and gentlemen are requested to wear trousers in the evening.

    Snacks, light dishes and salads are served by the pool which has a casual and relaxed atmosphere. Agra Bar is a cosy place to retreat to in the cooler months where you can ponder over the list of cocktails & regional wines and soak up the views of Canton Ticino. You'll be enchanted by the seasonally changing views from both La Cucina and Agra Bar which are open year round.
