The new sibling of the famous St Barth’s hotel opens in mid-2016. The hotel will build on the unique formula that has propelled its Caribbean sister to such success. Namely: relaxed privacy, understated elegance, and inspiring design. This stylish new offering promises to add a whole new layer of luxury to Lake Como’s prestigious collection of peaceful waterside hotels. Il Sereno sits on a scenic promontory along the lake’s eastern shoreline, with Instagram-perfect views over the water, the dramatic mountains, and the adjacent village of Torno. TLTB loves the idea of a varnished wood motorboat for use by clients who like to steer themselves as well as a traditional wooden Vaporina, water-limousine - with interiors by Patricia Urquiola - for transporting those who’d rather be chauffeured around the lake. Urquiola is also the designer of the hotel interiors. Rejecting the more tradition style of many lakeside offerings she has created a contemporary sanctuary with a sense of timeless elegance and understated sophistication.
