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:

Giardino hotels’ helicopter shuttles and tours

A cut above

Those who have always wanted to be a high-flyer get the opportunity to be just that with the air taxi offer. This is made possible by the Giardino hotels and Mountainflyers with the helicopter shuttle. Whether single- or twin-engined, an Airbus helicopter or an Agusta: the air taxi is arguably the fastest and most fascinating way to travel the Alps. From the airport to the hotel, from hotel to hotel, or as a spectacular means of embarking on a heli-skiing tour – travel times are cut by up to 75%, with prices from CHF 2,970. With state-of-the-art helicopters, almost 40 years of flying experience and its own flying school in Berne, Mountainflyers is an established, service-oriented and trustworthy provider. Fares are stated per flight excluding landing charges, handling fees, the overnight stay costs for the aircraft and crew, as well as any permit costs.

The Summer Issue 2018

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:

I love Switzerland – Let Giardino show you what makes travelling worthwhile
Back to rhythm – True relaxation with Ayurveda
Cool pool – More than just a rectangular body of water
Behind the stars – What Ecco’s Rolf Fliegauf serves at home
And … action! – What’s so special about the Locarno Film Festival

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.
