Grand Hotel Tremezzo Celebrates 102 Years of Hospitality

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Lake Como, Italy – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Guests are invited to travel back to a time of eras bygone with the celebration of Grand Hotel Tremezzo’s 102-year anniversary. Designed to embody class and sophistication, the 98-room hotel was built to satisfy the demands of turn-of-the-century tourists flocking to the world’s most beautiful lakeside retreat.

The cosmopolitan hotel opened its doors 102 years ago today, on July 10, 1910, creating the ultimate symbol of Italian hospitality on the shores of Lake Como. The centenary family-run hotel owes its origin to Lake Como native, Enea Gandola, who, after being inspired by his many travels throughout Europe, returned home to create a grand hotel of his own that would represent a haven of beauty while commanding the best views of the famed lake for their guests.  Art Nouveau in style and décor, design elements evoke a sense of majestic grandeur with elegantly appointed rooms and suites featuring panoramic views of the lake and surrounding gardens. 

A veteran of two world wars, the iconic palace has remained a sanctuary of peace and tranquility throughout the years, offering guests a welcomed retreat filled with serene pools, unparalleled views of the Bellagio and signature culinary offerings.  The hotel has played host to a number of elite visitors and was referenced in Greta Garbo’s 1932 hit film Grand Hotel as a simple, quiet and happy place.

Today, owned and managed by the De Santis family, the timeless hotel recently unveiled an ultra-exclusive all-suite rooftop floor featuring three junior suites, three corner suites and two front suites, each boasting their own private terrace, outdoor heated jacuzzi and breathtaking views of the lake. In keeping with the hotel’s lavish standards, luxury amenities include a private butler, champagne mini-bar and a rooftop skybed for romantic star gazing.
