The Albergo Losone is rare in style. Since its inception in the 1950s as the first European motel this hotel founded by the Glaus family has experienced considerable development.

In the park over 400 palm trees create a Carribean flair. Far from any disturbance this oasis spreads over an area of 27'000 m2. The Albergo Losone satisfies the wishes and needs of all family guests - from toddlers to grandparents - and has been recognised as best Swiss family hotel from 2003-2010 by the Sonntagszeitung, a leading Swiss Sunday newspaper.

The hotel offers:
  • 9 hole pitch and putt golf course 
  • house-own Tennis Academy 
  • bikes and helmets for the whole family 
  • various cosmetic treatments and massages in the Vitalspa "Oasi di Bellezza" 
  • "Sassi Caldi della Maggia" steam bath 
  • playground, indoor playarea and supervised activities for children over 3 (minimum 8 hours daily depending on season) 
  • pet zoo with goats and ponies 
  • free wilan internet access also in the rooms and at the pool
  • Ticino Experience www.ticinoexperience.ch 

Thanks to the generous planning it is possible to split interests between quiet- and activity zones latter including the swimming pool, playground, restaurant and bar. As a result it is possible even in the high season to find a quiet spot and perhaps curl up with a good book in the shade of palm trees. The pool is always heated and open 24 hours a day.

History

The story sounds like a fairytale and so from the beginning: once upon a time...
It begins with a young man called Charly Glaus who hails from the so-called Gasterland in Canton St. Gallen. Due to the lack of family funds he was unable to attend secondary school nor serve an apprenticeship as education at that time was so expensive. Not to be deterred Charly worked as a messenger and used his wages for evening classes. He was an avid reader and in 1945 achieved this main goal: to become a Swiss railway conductor...

The story sounds like a fairytale and so from the beginning: once upon a time...

It begins with a young man called Charly Glaus who hails from the so-called Gasterland in Canton St. Gallen. Due to the lack of family funds he was unable to attend secondary school nor serve an apprenticeship as education at that time was so expensive. Not to be deterred Charly worked as a messenger and used his wages for evening classes. He was an avid reader and in 1945 achieved this main goal: to become a Swiss railway conductor.

Early in the 1950s he was convinced that the USA motel boom would also suit the Swiss market. He quickly realised his dream by opening his own motel in Losone. Cash was not plentiful, so at the very beginning he and his wife Charlotte were unable to install glass windows throughout resulting in rooms on offer for CHF 6.00 nighly with a glass window and for CHF 4.00 without!

From the first moment he was determined to upgrade his basic motel and unstintingly he and Charlotte worked to make improvements to both comfort and appearance of the establishment. Within 5 years the motel had been so vastly altered that he renamed it Albergo Losone.

By the 1970s daughters Ursula, Silvia and Michela also started working at the hotel and in 1977 the Albergo Losone was awarded 5-star rating.
On August 7 1978 catastrophic flooding occurred forcing 140 guests and all staff to spend a stormy night on the roof. The Maggia River caused total damage. However within 52 days the Albergo Losone reopened its doors.

A generation change in the early 1990s resulted in management being transferred to daughter Ursula and son-in-law Thomas Mosberger. The present director, Diego Glaus, has been in charge of Albergo Losone since 1995.

From 2003 to 2008 the Swiss Sunday newspaper Sonntagszeitung has named Albergo Losone as best Swiss family hotel every year.
