Kurhaus Cademario Hotel & Spa
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Cademario
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 December 2013

The hotel has been tastefully renovated in 2013. The location is wonderful overlooking Lake Lugano and is ideal for hiking trips.
The rooms are very comfortable and well equipped. If you have the choice do not take room 129 on the 1st floor, which is located right above the kitchen. Food odors enter the room.
We had a light dinner in the bar, the food and wines were excellent.

Room Tip: Do not take a room on the 1st floor near the kitchen.

Located 3 hours away by Car from Zurich, at the hilly village of Cademario, the drive was quite challenging but the view was priceless. The Hotel's Highlights: Spacious room with the breathtaking view of Lake Lugano, large balcony, the lovely decoration and interiors, the relaxing DOT Spa with its huge an modern spa, outdoor pool overlooking the lake, the friendly and attentive service at the restaurant and at the bar (La Terazza & La Cucina), food and beverages are surprisingly reasonably priced (they were of very good quality and tasty) and the free non-alcoholic beverages at the mini bar. On the other hand, Kurhaus Cademario's Lowlights were the renovation at the garden (we weren't able to check it out to have a walk) plus the reception when we arrived could have been friendlier. We were fortunate enough to be the very first guests at the hotel right after the major renovation. The Infrastructure of the hotel was immaculate. It was not fully booked. Kurhaus Cademario Hotel & Spa is definitely one of favorite Hotels in Switzerland and we are coming back. Thank you for the wonderful time.

Kurhaus Cademario is a lovely gem hidden in Ticino's Lugano region. We went there on the weekend of 14-15th of December, and the weather was absolutely beautiful - the hotel is surrounded by great hiking paths, so we were able to see a lot of the amazing scenery. The hotel and SPA itself is stunning - the decor and style are absolutely up my alley, as I am somewhat of an architecture buff and Cademario took my breath away. The staff are lovely, speak English, French, Italian, German and I wouldn't be surprised if many more languages, they are very friendly and the atmosphere they create complements the style of the hotel very well. The SPA is almost luxurious, all facilities brand new and amazing. We haven't been able to try the cuisine, but the breakfast was fantastic. An absolute must when in Lugano area- the views from the restaurant terrace are to die for!

Kurhaus Cademario was completely renovated and reopened in May 2013. Spa, rooms, pool, restaurants, everything is new! The style of the hotel is comfortable - you feel like at home. The breathtaking view is the most spectacular unique selling propostion of the hotel. From the hotel you have very nice opportunities for hiking trips.

None of the hotels in the town of Lugano appeared attractive, unless and of course, youre only here to squirrel away your hand earned finances into its established banks, or lose it in the casinos.
Lugano is not a particularly attractive place to visit, compared to other towns and villages dotting the lake shoreline, and my weekend break was intended to be enjoyed relaxing, enjoying the spectacular landscapes, wine, and food. This I was able to achieve by staying in this newly renovated hillside Spa hotel.
In typically Swiss style, uncomplicated designs, finest materials, and a cuisine to support this, made our stay a delight. The rooms are very well appointed, to very high standards...nothing was missing. Spa facilities are reasonably priced, and of very high standard. The hotel of course offers all the usual services, like airport transfer, taxi, consierge.
Although a bit secluded, and not too easy to find due to poor signposting, we were glad to have made the choice of staying here. Its a good stepping off point for rambles in the hills, passing small villages, stopping for refreshment, and simply enjoying the good life.

Room Tip: A room facing the Lago is by far the best option...at the end of the day, the views are better than...

The hotel was recently completely refurbished. Great attention to details and harmony with nature. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, modern spa with indoor and outdoor swimming pool and spacious treatment cabins. Spectacular view on the lake and Lugano region. Access road narrow and bendy, not very easy to find. Good for a relaxing break.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with lake view

After a long trip in Europe and seeing many hotels, this was a perfect way of ending our trip. The road to the hotel was not easy but once we arrived the friendliness, attention and the warm feeling given by the staff was just great! The room was cozy and had everything you might need...not to talk about the spa which has a very good concept. The restaurant has a beautiful view over the Lugano lake, something to enjoy as long as you can. We will definitely come back!!

Room Tip: Don't miss the lake view!
