HOTEL EDEN ROC
History & Story
The Hotel Eden Roc was built in 1971 and acquired by the Kipp-Bechtolsheimer family in 1989. The purchase of a neighbouring hotel in 2000 doubled the capacity. The resort was expanded further in 2010 when the Kipp-Bechtolsheimer family took over another neighbouring hotel with 16 rooms and restaurant. This merger has resulted in an extensive resort with private beach, spacious panoramic landing stage, 95 luxury rooms and suites, four restaurants and 2000 m2 spa.
During the winter of 2014/2015, 30 rooms in the hotel were completely redesigned and this was followed by the renovation of further rooms in the winter of 2015/2016 and 2016/17. All renovations have been made by Swiss interior designer Carlo Rampazzi.
Date added extensions
2010: Eden Roc Marina with a further 16 rooms and a restaurant
Main Strengths, Special Touch
A private bathing area, a spacious panoramic landing stage with private yachting marina, 95 luxurious guest rooms and suites with bright and colourful interior designs, four exceptional restaurants garnering a total of 46 GaultMillau points as well as a 2,000 m2 Spa and hotel’s own water-sports school.
Absolute peace and quiet directly on the shores of Lake Maggiore in Ascona.
Ascona is Switzerland’s lowest lying town. It is located at 196 meters above sea level in the southern part of Switzerland. Ascona is famous for its mild climate, its Old Town and a lake promenade which is dotted with street cafés and boasts a Latin ambience.
Key sites/activities in the area
The hotel’s location and the affiliated water-sports school offer the perfect setting to take up waterskiing, sailing or wakeboarding. Back on dry land, the splendid Ticino valleys beckon for bike tours and extended hikes. Golfers will find 18 courses with various levels of difficulty in the local area and over the border in Italy. Two of these are just a stone’s throw away.
Gold on your plate: a perfect steak and a cold beer with chill-out music, grilled vegetables and a glass of red wine, or fresh fish accompanied by rhythmic salsa music? The Eden Roc Beach is the perfect place for private beach barbecues.
The Kids’ Club provides plenty of activities for children and teenagers. The varied summer leisure programme offers activities for every age group. The youngest guests are affectionately taken care of by professionally trained babysitters so that their parents can relax and enjoy their holiday.
