Our history, our future

The history of ESTATE & ESPLANADE is rooted in the deep groove of History: Kurhotel Esplanade was founded in 1913 as a residence and health resort, according to the course of time that saw the opening of other similar businesses dedicated to the body care by mineral- rich or thermal water in Europe during the same period.
In 1925, after being transformed into a prestigious hotel, due to its undisputed fame the Esplanade was chosen as the location for drafting the agreements of the Pact of Locarno.

Attended and loved over the decades by celebrities, politicians and artists, in 1993 it returned to its primordial vocation, specializing in the welfare of its guests and becoming a stylish, elegant SPA hotel.
An important past, an innovative present, an exponential future.

"...excellent water, very healthy air, wonderful weather, especially in summer, walks close to natural forests, English gardens, sentimental romantic places (...) enchanting and magic view" (from a writing dated 1858 about Kurhotels in Locarno)
