Regenerate yourself and live better with Spa, Beauty Farms and Wellness Centers on Lake Garda
For a holiday dedicated to well-being, Lake Garda offers a wide variety of hotels with spas, five star hotels, thermal centres and luxury resorts. Guests are welcomed, cradled, and cuddled with great professionalism by highly trained staff in these accommodation facilities.
One of the advantages of the lake, aside from its mild climate, are its numerous thermal centres, that make the lake an esteemed destination all year round. The term “spa” was born here, as in latin it means salus per aquam (“Well-being comes from the water”), as ancient romans already knew far too well.
It’s not surprising that some of the best spas in Italy are on Lake Garda.
In a spa the central element for healing and well-being is water, which can be used in different ways, like water baths, steam baths, and showers, while being accompanied by massages and alternative treatment like ayurvedic medicine.
In winter, when the days get shorter, the cold gets more intense, and stress from work and life in the city increases, Lake Garda offers many oases of peace where people can find refuge and relax, focus on their bodies, and free their minds from daily worries.
The hotels with spa on Lake Garda offer different packets for their clients, varying on their tastes and needs. Their pamphlets are distributed all around the ring surrounding the crystal waters of the lake, one of the main tourist destinations of Italy.
It’s possible to organise a stay in a hotel on Lake Garda like a proper wellness trip even for just a few days, or to live a romantic weekend with a significant other in one of the splendid resorts of the area. With a simple internet search it’s possible to find many discounts on spas of Lake Garda.
