Swiss-Belhotel International, the award-winning global hospitality chain owned and operated by New Zealander Gavin Faull, has announced the signing of its first ever hotel in Italy. Set to welcome its first guests within 24 months, Swiss-Belresort Evergreen Garden Village will be an exclusive adults-only resort located in Vedelago, the northwest Italian region of Lombardy. This puts guests in a perfect position, just one hour drive from Verona, and only 50 minutes from the world-famous water-based wonders of Venice.
Swiss-Belresort Evergreen Garden Village will feature 156 spacious rooms and suites, plus a complete range of facilities including two restaurants, two bars, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, a gym, tennis court and wellness centre. The property will become Swiss-Belhotel International’s first property not only in Italy but also in Western Europe, reflecting the hotel group’s continued global expansion strategy.
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 the enchanting Villa Emo, which dates from the 16th Century and has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
“We are delighted to be making our debut in Italy, one of the world’s most treasured tourist destinations,” said Gavin M. Faull, Chairman and President of Swiss-Belhotel International. “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,” concluded Mr Faull.
