Upscale resort will be Swiss-Belhotel’s first in Italy
Swiss-Belhotel International has announced the signing of its first ever hotel in Italy, located between the beautiful and historic cities of Verona and Venice.
Scheduled to welcome its first guests within two years, Swiss-Belresort Evergreen Garden Village will be an exclusive adults-only resort located in Vedelago, in the northwest Italian region of Lombardy.
The locations puts guests in an ideal position, just one hour’s drive from Verona, – the setting for several Shakespeare plays including ‘Romeo and Juliet’ – and only 50 minutes from the world-famous water-based wonders of Venice.
The property will feature 156 spacious rooms and suites, plus a range of facilities including two restaurants, two bars, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, a gym, tennis court and wellness centre.
From this expansive upscale resort, guests will be able to discover some of northern Italy’s most exquisite heritage, including artistic fairs, operas, botanical gardens and ancient architecture, including Villa Emo, which dates from the 16th Century and has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
‘Treasured tourist destination’
Gavin M. Faull, chairman and president of Swiss-Belhotel International, said: “We are delighted to be making our debut in Italy, one of the world’s most treasured tourist destinations.
“Swiss-Belresort Evergreen Garden Village is a truly beautiful property; nestled among the ancient landscapes of Veneto, it is an idyllic sanctuary where guests can unwind in style and enjoy the extensive facilities.
“Alternatively, curious visitors can use the resort as a luxurious base from which to explore the surrounding region, including the captivating city of Verona, which inspired three Shakespeare plays; the cosmopolitan city of Vicenza, with its UNESCO-listed collection of Palladian Villas; and of course Venice, the breath-taking ancient city of canals and bridges.”
Swiss-Belresort Evergreen Garden Village will become the Asian hotel group’s first property not only in Italy, but also in Western Europe, reflecting its continued global expansion strategy.
