Created to compliment Lake Como’s natural beauty, guest rooms are custom made to reflect Urquiola’s vision of blending a clean modern aesthetic with biophilia-inspired designs. The Lake Como resort also comes with floor-to-ceiling- windows which look out onto the surrounding forests, mountains, and of course, the iconic lake.
