Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set in lush exotic grounds, the Esplanade Hotel Resort & Spa rises up majestically above Minusio, in a peaceful, sun-drenched residential district of Locarno, just 300 metres from Lago Maggiore. The location is extremely refined and easy to reach yet away from the hustle and bustle of the city centers of Locarno, Ascona e Lugano. The Esplanade provides the perfect setting if you cherish peace and quiet in an alluring atmosphere - whether you are here for work or pleasure. ... more   less
