Discreet Luxury at the Splendide Royal Lugano in the Swiss Alps
October 6, 2009By: Daniel L. Moses
Splendide Royal LuganoLuigi Pirandello, writing in 1896, probably said it best: "Sempre amai questo lago or fosco ed ora morbido, come azzurro vel di seta." Even if you don't speak Italian, the beauty of the words from this poetic verse come through, echoed only by the beauty of the lake shores high in the Swiss Alps at the Splendide Royal Lugano, a resort hotel that does justice to the incredible natural surroundings in the heart of the Italian-speaking South of Switzerland. And if marveling at the glorious Lugano Lake, framed on either side by Mount San Salvatore and Mount Brè, isn't your cup of tea, than the words "discreet luxury" won't entice you at all. But discreet luxury is offered in abundance at the Splendide Royal Lugano. You'll also have the chance to translate Luigi Pirandello's famous words, and when you do, it will be impossible not to agree. Grazie.
