Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has taken over management of CastaDiva Resort & Spa, an existing resort on Lake Como, Italy.
The property will be rebranded as Mandarin Oriental, Lake Como in spring 2019 following a refurbishment of facilities.
This will be Mandarin Oriental’s first resort-style property in western Europe and will complement the group’s Milan hotel.
Located on the shores of Lake Como, the resort features 76 spacious rooms and suites housed in nine villas, dating from the 19th Century.
Two of the villas will be bookable in their entirety giving guests their own private retreat. Almost all accommodation has lake views that can be enjoyed from either a balcony or terrace.
The resort features four restaurants and bars, including a lakeside terrace for dining al fresco, a large spa with an indoor swimming pool and an outdoor floating pool on the lake.
Lake Como has been a popular travel destination for centuries, and is regarded as one of the most beautiful resort areas in northern Italy.
The lake is surrounded by villas, gardens and villages and offers visitors a wealth of scenic views, hiking trails, boating and other water activities.
It is easily accessed from Milan Malpensa airport.
CastaDiva Resort & Spa was acquired in 2017 by funds managed by Attestor Capital.
