Luxury boutique hotel La Speranzina opens on Lake Garda

A small boutique wellness retreat has opened on the shores of Lake Garda in Italy.

The Speranzina Relais and Restaurant is privately owned and operated by the Giordano family and is located at the end of the Sirmione peninsula.

Designed as an “über-luxury” retreat, the property has just three guest bedrooms – two of which are fitted with private spa areas.

The 101sq m (1,000sq ft) Royal Suite Maria Luisa offers a spa area housing a treatment area, steam bath, a Finnish sauna, an ice fountain, spa pool and tepidarium.

There is also a relaxation area, fitted with a heated spa couch, designed for “body regeneration” and relaxation.

Suite Spa Kristina, meanwhile, is slightly smaller in size at 79sq m (850sq ft) and boasts a private balcony directly above the blue waters of Lake Garda.

The Kristina suite’s private spa has a treatment area, spa pool, a Finnish sauna, a steam bath and a chromotherapy shower.

Italy-based spa specialist Wellness & Spa Solutions has designed the spa areas and the hotel was created by Italian architects Studio Azzali.

Speaking to CLAD Roberto Cemin, president of Wellness & Spa Solutions, described the design as a mixture of luxury and comfort.

“The design of each suite is studied in the smallest detail, leaving nothing to chance,” Cemin said.

“From the faucet to the colours and aromas used for chrome and aromatherapy, each element is in accord with the chosen style, marrying perfectly the idea of relaxation combined with elegance and uniqueness.”

The hotel has been developed following the success of the La Speranzina restaurant, which has become a culinary destination and has gained a mention in the Michelin online guide.

As part of the transformation of the restaurant into a wellness resort, the eatery will be kept open 24 hours a day to cater for guests.
