Infinity pool between sky and lake

The magic of Mandarin Oriental on Lake Como is renewed with a spectacular, floating infinity pool designed by Herzog & de Meuron and a redesigned spa of 1200 sqm

Mandarin Oriental, Herzog & de Meuron, Lake Como

Built using the local Cardoso stone, identical to the one found on the bottom of Lake Como, the pool takes on a dark hue that, with a unique optical effect, makes the water very similar in colour to that of the lake. Connected to the new NAMI Café with a ramp, its catamaran structure reduces the impact of the waves. The resort has been enriched with a redesigned spa of 1,200 square meters.

A significant part of the redesign was the introduction of natural light, used to enhance the spaces and create a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. New windows have been opened to let in direct sunlight, and a sky light in the ceiling of the new courtyard becomes a focus point in the treatment area. The view of the lake has been enhanced by a new arched window over 4 meters wide, broadening the view of the enchanting outside landscape. 

 The treatment area, with a design recalling Asian culture, revolves around this new courtyard. The Cardoso stone floors, the wenge wood furnishings, and the carefully finished details contribute to creating an environment of extreme elegance and order. The spa offers two luxury suites and four treatment rooms, as well as a thermal area with a jacuzzi, a Finnish sauna, an ice waterfall and a bio-salty sauna.
