As with every year, there are many new things that will be waiting for our guests with the opening of the new season in 2017.
Whether they be great works or minor surgery, we always try to give our best to make your stay on Lake Lugano is as beautiful as possible.

Last year we surprised you with the new Sky Lounge, our rooftop terrace bar, which is the perfect place for your aperitif or a drink after dinner at one of our restaurants.


For the opening of our new season on March 24 2017 we decided to focus on our suites. Firstly, is the Easy One-Bedroom Suite whose bedroom provides a modern and attractive touch through the use of grays and taupes throughout. This category of suite with beautiful private gardens, is located in the most central part of the Resort, and is perfect for families with young babies because the reception and the San Marco restaurant can both be easily reached by a short walk with a stroller.

One Bedroom Suite WohnzimmerThe number of our One-Bedroom Suites are going to increase and these rooms with lake views are accessible by little bridges. In addition to this, there will also be some great changes in Dependence del Parco.
The first of the new constructions in the Dependence del Parco is the Grand Suite. The suite, which can accommodate bookings starting from four people, is 90 square meters. Perfectly situated, you can directly access the resort’s beach, the largest private beach on Lake Lugano, by foot in just a matter of minutes.

2017 has also started well for Parco San Marco thanks to its first-place ranking on Holiday Check for hotels in Lombardy, listed as the best beach hotel in Italy! Not bad really!

We will leave you speechless with our new culinary concepts and your children will thoroughly enjoy the new theme to the Club Bim Bam Bino where they can play and know the world around Parco San Marco with our animation team, and more.

Do not waste any more time, there are still a few suites available! See you soon!

Shopping around the corner from Parco San Marco

Lake Lugano and the city of Como are a must for those who love shopping and Dolce Far Niente.


In the beautiful city of Como you can find many ateliers in the city center, nestled within the ancient medieval walls that surround the city. Fashion boutiques with the latest creations from some of the world’s most famous fashion designers all tantalize your desire to shop and, in the heart of Lugano itself, you can find the famous Via Nassa where the ground floors of elegant buildings house the boutiques of prestigious Swiss luxury watch and jewelery makers.

And once your shopping is over, take a walk on the promenade along the lake or enjoy an aperitif in one of the cafes on the Piazza del Duomo or around Piazza Cavour: very chic!

In Mendrisio, about a 40 minute drive from Parco San Marco, is the Foxtown outlet village: here, with wonders as far as as the eye can see,  the only thing that will be empty is your credit cards ! ;-) You can find pretty much everything here from kids’ fashion, sports clothing stores, shoes and bags to large French and Italian fashion houses. With its 160 shops, a casino and several dining options, Foxtown is really a must-see.


Alternatively, if you love to run around market stalls, we can recommend the best markets for you that can be found less than an hour away by car.

Porlezza market, for example, is within walking distance from our resort and is held every Saturday. In Como, the market that is held three times a week – on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays – is divided along the outside of the walls, running from Viale Varese to Porta Torre and offers clothing, local produce, fruit and vegetables.

Alternatively, every Wednesday, the famous market of the small town Luino is set up. This is, in fact, known as one of the largest street markets in northern Italy and a visit to these colorful stalls is an absolutely must during your stay.

We look forward to welcoming you to Parco San Marco and for you to enjoy all the shopping opportunities close to the resort.
