All brand new but still typically Reka.
Clean lakes, high mountains, woody hills and a mild, Mediterranean climate – more than ever Ticino, with its wide variety of touristic possibilities, ranks as one of Swiss families’ top destinations. Reka has deep roots here. It runs 5 resorts, including the very first founded in 1964, the Reka Holiday Village in Lugano-Albonago. Now the pretty holiday houses with spacious flats on the sunny slopes of Monte Bré have been completed rebuilt. The magnificent spot high up above Lugano with stunning views out over the lake across to the Malcantone will now be thrilling many more generations of holiday guests.

Unforgettable memories in the new Holiday Village
Look forward to discovering the new community house and reception area. Enjoy the wide gastronomical variety at the Ticinese “Grotto-Stil” and its spacious terrace with the breath-taking view out over the lake. The typical Reka games and sports facilities (barrier-free throughout), the Rekalino club for child care and lots of room for teenagers all complete the family-friendly offers - especially something that is an absolute must : the panorama pool and children’s paddling pools.
One of the things we value most is sustainability
On our way towards CO2 neutrality and the most sustainable holiday offers in Switzerland, Reka is also following its ambitious strategy in Lugano-Albonago. The new building is being built according to the SIA Energy Efficiency Path standards. Sustainable development is guaranteed throughout – for the material used for wooden constructions or energy supply with self-generated solar or eco current.
Our sustainability concept at a glance:
- Optimization in compliance with the most up-to-date ecological standards
- Timber construction as a renewable resource
- Adapting the holiday resort to the needs of Reka guests, including barrier freedom
- High-density construction and conservation of resources thanks to building recycling
- Implementation of Implenia’s own environment concept with focus on waste, water, noise, air, soil
Easy to reach by rail, bus or car
As in the past, Reka’s new Holiday Village will be linked up with public transport. Furthermore, there are 42 covered and 17 exterior parking spaces.
New : own bike infrastructure
Just like at other Reka resorts, there will now be a perfectly equipped bike station at Lugano-Albonago with all you could need for carefree bike holidays with mountain bikes, racing bikes, gravellers or touring bikes. The resort will have the Swiss Bike Hotels label.
