Hotel Eden Roc & Albergo Carcani
The Hotel Eden Roc in Ascona started as a small hotel on the shore of Lake Maggiore, and developed into a luxury resort that, with three buildings, 95 guest rooms and suites, four restaurants, and a 2000 m2 spa, has already been named Switzerland's most beautiful holiday hotel several times. The following provides an overview of the most important events in the history of the fourth member of the Tschuggen Hotel Group:
The Hotel Eden Roc in Ascona opened, offering both hotel rooms and holiday apartments
The Kipp-Bechtolsheimer family acquired the Hotel Eden Roc. After the Tschuggen Grand Hotel, the former Sporthotel Valsana, and the Carlton Hotel St. Moritz, the five-star hotel in Ascona was the fourth member of the Swiss Tschuggen Hotel Group.
With the acquisition of the neighbouring Hotel Eden au Lac and the historical house La Casetta, the capacity of the award-winning luxury hotel increased to 79 rooms and suites.
The resort was expanded further when the Kipp-Bechtolsheimer family took over the adjoining Hotel Ascolago with its 16 rooms, spacious restaurant, and jetty, connected it to the main building, and renamed it the Eden Roc Marina.
A further hotel joined the Group with the acquisition of the Hotel Carcani on Ascona's main piazza. Following a five-month period of complete renovation, the hotel reopened in spring 2012 as Albergo Carcani.
