Mixing classic glamour and storied history, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo in Lake Como dreams up the perfect, elegant Italian stay...
Arrive at this stunning and – for lack of a better word, grand – lakeside property and you will immediately feel as if you’ve been transported through time. While a main street separates the hotel from the manmade beach club and floating pool, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo offers spectacular views of the entire lake and surrounding Alps. For those that prefer some more peace and tranquility, the Flowers Pool is located in a gorgeous garden behind the hotel.
Built in 1910, the iconic hotel and its’ beautifully appointed rooms have since been renovated and effortlessly bridges the traditional Art Nouveau style steeped in history, with a more modern sensibility. The family-run hotel hosts a truly attentive staff and offers a mixture of 76 rooms and 14 suites in total. Some of the rooms overlook the garden, however most of the hotel’s rooms face the lake – so booking a suite isn’t required (but highly recommended!). If you choose to opt for a more modern sumptuous suite, prepare to never leave, as the grand terraces (some with a private Jacuzzi!) and insane views are an experience in itself.
The super-stylish spa offers treatments from one of the world’s most exclusive, distinguished beauty providers, ESPA. Secretly hidden in the greens of the garden is a rare find for a spa in Europe – the T Spa Suite – a couples suite, where you and your loved one can have the ultimate private spa experience. From the incredible indoor infinity pool and panoramic relaxation room to the fully appointed modern gym, Grand Hotel Tremezzo’s T Spa is a spectacular oasis to say the least.
On the culinary front, there are a few restaurants on property that offer plenty of options for all. The main formal dining room, La Terrazza, offers more formal Italian Fare and doubles as the breakfast room with a delicious buffet. L’Escale is a fondue-focused restaurant that offers a more casual, fun option. For lunch with a view, T Beach offers an array of fresh cuisine or a classic pizza and during the summer holds weekly BBQ’s at night and DJ parties. And last, but most definitely not least, the classic hotel bar is both luxurious and charming with light bites served throughout the day and at night.
Grand Hotel Tremezzo adds a sweet touch with a complimentary candy bar in the lobby, with the selection changed daily!
TIME TO GO: June through September. May might be nice, but keep in mind it could be chilly!
PERFECT FOR: Couples, Honeymooners & Young Families
Keep in mind that it’s not exactly the best place for young kids as there are no ‘kids camps’ or programmed activities, but the hotel will help with babysitting
THE LOCATION: Uniquely located in the heart of Lake Como, Grand Hotel Tremezzo has unparalleled views of Bellagio while offering a sense of seclusion. Behind the lakefront property is a lush park that spans 2-hectares, with a floodlit clay tennis court and a running path.
