Aria Retreat & SPA
Lapitec chosen for new 5-star luxury hotel, immersed in nature. Over 2,000 m2 of slabs cover the exterior and interior of the new luxury destination overlooking Lake Lugano.
Built on a lush green slope, with views directly over the Italian side of Lake Lugano, Air Retreat & SPA is a brand new 5-star luxury hotel set within a 40,000 m2 park, and home to five restaurants and three swimming pools, tennis courts, a fitness centre, a private beach, and a wellness centre of 1,500 m2. Naturally, the 15 suites all come with a view, and are of three types, starting from 51 m2.
The rooms and extensive facilities of the resort are housed in an architectural complex that blends perfectly with the landscape. Inaugurated in the summer of 2021, the structure was designed by R4M Engineering around the concepts of “freedom, light and air”, the motto of the resort. This philosophical approach permeates not only the range of services offered by the hotel, part of the Leading Hotels of The World group, but the building itself, designed by the Milan studio to limit environmental impact and obtain green certifications through the use of technologies, equipment and materials of the highest standards. The solar panels, cutting-edge heating systems, home automation solutions for controlling consumption and, in the interior spaces, the warm wooden surfaces, are joined by a high-performance ventilated facade made from large size Lapitec slabs, a material produced from a mixture of 100% natural minerals, free of any chemical additives, dyes or other petroleum derivatives.
The ideal outdoor material
Free of surface porosity, Lapitec does not absorb water, is resistant to changes in temperature and extreme temperatures, and is not susceptible to impact, scratches or damage, making it an ideal material for both vertical and horizontal surfaces in outdoor contexts.
