Doeltschiweg 234, Zurich, Canton of Zurich, Switzerland
Located at the foot of Zurich’s Uetliberg mountain, Atlantis by Giardino is uniquely positioned to enjoy the surrounding woods while also just a short ride to the city center. A post-war modernist gem awash in luxurious materials, bespoke furniture, and breathtaking views of lush forests and cityscapes, it once played host to numerous pop stars, from Grace Jones to Freddie Mercury to Frank Zappa. The hotel is home to two restaurants. Two-Michelin-starred chef Rolf Fliegauf brings his exceptional food concept from Ascona to the property’s Ecco Zurich restaurant, which is run by his trusted associate and former sous-chef Stefan Heilemann. The other eatery, Hide & Seek restaurant, combines chef Bastian Mantey’s love of Asia with his European roots. A spectacular 25-meter outdoor pool offers up views of mountain forests, while an indoor pool in the spa is perfect for bad weather days. The dipiù spa boasts modern and Ayurvedic treatments along with food that follows Ayurvedic principles.
