The lovely, 45-foot indoor pool is adjacent to a calm green garden.
While the Villa Kennedy's exterior may recall Camelot, the interior decor is rooted firmly in contemporary Europe. The 163 bedrooms (including 29 suites) are thoroughly modern, yet exude an organic, personalized ambiance. The hotel sums up its use of neutral tones, timber floors, and glass paneling as "minimalist deluxe," a subtle decision to appear homey and never Spartan or gaudy. Sizes range from the 350 sq. ft. Classic Rooms to the vast and palatial 3260 sq. ft. Presidential Suite, one of the biggest of its kind in Germany.
Guests can begin their day of shopping and sightseeing with the opulent spread of the Villa Kennedy's buffet breakfast, often offering tropical fruit even at this latitude. The colonnaded restaurant, Gusto, serves continental cuisine with unusual twists (the lobster tagliolini followed by lemongrass pannacotta is pure heaven) in a charming courtyard setting.
