The renaissance of a Zurich hotel

The Urban Retreat in the heart of Europe

Experience what Zürich, the city in the heart of Europe, is about: an urban vibe to the rhythm of nature. Atlantis by Giardino strikes the perfect balance between these two worlds. As an urban retreat, it seamlessly unites the luxury of a five-star superior city hotel with the natural surroundings of its green and peaceful location at the foot of the Üetliberg mountain.. The freshly renovated Atlantis by Giardino whisks you back to its glamorous age as a stage for international guests and a meeting place for Zurich locals.

Glamorous and nonchalant

Events for Zurich locals and guests

Steve McQueen and boxing legend Muhammad Ali were guests. Freddie Mercury gave a private performance on the bar’s grand piano. The Atlantis hotel once radiated an atmosphere of splendour – yet it still remained fairly casual. Now, other things sparkle cheerfully at Atlantis by Giardino – see all events here or download the flyer there: Atlantis by Giardino – Summer Events.

The Summer Issue 2016

A picture is often worth more than a thousand words – but pictures don’t tell us the stories behind them or where the inspiration came from, and, above all, they don’t give anyone a chance to have their say. In the Giardino magazine, we give both pictures and words free rein to reveal the charm and character of what lies in store. This summer’s highlights:

30! 30 years ago, Giardino discovered a new kind of luxury of relaxation
Art Avant-garde – Zurich and the art of the moment
Surf Philippe Frutiger is making waves in the Engadine
Happy Somehow, things are always cheerful at Lago Maggiore
Weltmeister Oliver Bierhoff talks about “The Team’s” visit to Ascona

Luxurious nonchalance

“Giardino” is Italian and means garden. Intense, diversified and full of natural perfection. A place of regeneration and so full of individuality, that every detail deserves its own moment. The Giardino Retreats and Resorts are just like this garden and offer a surprisingly fresh interpretation of luxury hotels and creative cuisine. They all combine casual ambiance, superior service and charismatic design to a places of Mediterranean joie de vivre – whether in sunny Ticino, alpine altitudes or urban areas. Giardino unites the most attractive facets of Switzerland with a good dosage of sunny hospitality.
