For a vacation that’s all about the mind, body and soul, Lake Garda’s spa hotels are an essential stop. From the modern Garda Thermae Wellness, Beauty & Medical Spa in Arco sul Garda to the 5-star Lefay Resort & SPA at Gargnano and its luxury packets, you can experience true relaxation among a backdrop of history and natural beauty.
In addition to a pampering SPA with thermal baths, saunas and massage rooms, these hotels also offer aesthetic treatments for face and body and weight loss programs accompanied by special nutrition. They also offer fitness areas, pools and other sports facilities. Some are set in historic castles or villas and have views over the lake.
Whether you’re looking for a big hotel in the historic town of Torbole, an intimate agriturismo in the sleepy village of Vivere or something with more space in Riva del Garda, the best lake garda spa hotels have that sense of place where time seems to stand still. They offer that feeling of awe from your very first moment at the hotel: a grand entrance with marble fountains and statues, light contemporary interiors and the most sublime lake views you could imagine.
Many also have terraces for breakfast or a glass of wine after dinner, and some of the suites at the luxury hotels in Lake Garda have outdoor Jacuzzis as well. Some are set in old, secluded villas with beautiful gardens and olive trees. Others are dotted along the lake shore, in towns like Salo on the west coast with its beautiful marina and mountain backdrop or Sirmione in the south with its castle fortress.
