Special suites are also available, each with its own unique characteristics. The Terrace Garden Suite is located on the first floor and counts with a separate living room and two bathrooms, as well as its namesake: a private terrace with views to the lake. The Suite Greta is an ode to Greta Garbo, actress from Hollywood’s golden era, who referred to the Grand Hotel as a “sunny, happy place”, and this suite is fashioned just like that. Covered in gold, the large windows offer panoramic lake views. Suite Emilia is located inside the Villa Emilia and offers the utmost privacy in the complex, with private access to the T Spa, and is decorated in perfect white, blue and grey to harmonize your stay. The Signature Suite, a precious homage to the elegance of yesteryear, is a spacious room fit for royalty, with views to Bellagio and the surrounding mountains.

The crown jewel is definitively the Villa Sola Cabiati, located just 5 minutes from the main Palace, a private space with direct access to Lake Como and its own private pool and garden. Decorated to perfection, the Villa Sola counts with its own staff team, including manager, butler, chamber maid and housekeeper, and offers full and quick access to the Grand Hotel’s amenities. The Villa was built in the 16th century and later bought by the Dukes of Serbelloni in the 18th century, effectively transforming it into the most spectacular locale at the lake.
