Il Sereno, Lake Como, Italy

Penthouse Suite

When the hotel name loosely translates to “serene,” you know you’re in for a peaceful stay. Those familiar with Le Sereno St Barths will enjoy the similar intimacy of this sister hotel but with a contemporary edge, thanks to design by Patricia Urquiola. Sitting right on the edge of Lake Como, every room has a dazzling view, but the three-bedroom Penthouse Suite, situated on the top floor, has the absolute best. The floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights fill the suite with natural light and enhance these beautiful lake vistas; however, we think the most peaceful way to soak up the view is in the private terrace’s hot tub.

From $3,495 per night. Contact Samy Ghachem,, +39 031 547 7800,
