Like the kindness that runs through the veins of the Splendide, meaning nothing is ever too much trouble, Giuseppe Rossi’s ability in international hospitality comes naturally. He has been GM at The Splendide for 10 years – welcoming its guests personally and touring the hotel every day to bid a personal hello to each guest he sees.
His career in luxury hospitality began at the Hotel Splendide Royal in 1982. Here, in what was perhaps a case of the hotel’s great past meeting its great future, he was mentored by the legendary hotelier Lauro Aniello. In these early years Rossi took temporary leave from Lugano to develop his career and worked across Europe in some of the most prestigious management roles in both international hotel chains and leading first class hotels.
Since his return to the Hotel Splendide Royal, Rossi’s depth of experience and natural ability have helped to both develop the reputation and strengthen the global standing of the hotel.
Giuseppe Rossi is a General Manager who takes his great responsibility in his stride. His love for the Splendide is apparent from the moment you meet him. He is a gentleman, and a scholar, to whom the needs of his guests are always paramount.
