The garden is home to 54 species of plants and flowers and six of the nine Villas are named after plants that grow in the park.

The resort’s beating heart is Villa Roccabruna, the former residence of Italian soprano Giuditta Pasta built in 1799. At the lakefront villa Pasta would entertain artists, musicians and writers such as Italian composers Vincenzo Bellini and Gioacchino Rossini, writer and poet Alessandro Manzoni, French novelist Stendhal, and artist Maria Cosway. Original architectural elements of the Villa have been preserved, including a historic fireplace, original coffered ceiling and parquet flooring.

The resort is located on the eastern shore of the lake, allowing the property to capture plenty of sunlight including stunning sunsets.

Mandarin Oriental, Lago di Como’s unique European, antique fan circa 1880, is reflective of the sophistication and elegance of the hotel. It was chosen for its striking design, with garlands of golden flowers and silver foliage, which reference the beautiful shores of Lake Como.
