Hotel Lido Palace
was one of the most exquisite of our experiences in the region. Overlooking the breathtakingly scenic Lake Garda in the northern Italian town of Riva, the hotel exceeded all our expectations for a truly extraordinary luxury sojourn. Open only two weeks, we didnít expect to find such a well-run shipóin every sense of the word. A brilliant set of renovations fused the hotelís historic Belle Époque architecture with a metal and glass addition that soars out and above the water like the prow of a great, elegant ship. Outside, the original faÁade, park, and gardens retain a fairytale Old World essence, while the interiors are a seamless construct of contemporary chic, with a Zen-like modern design and decor inside the hotelís 34 rooms and 8 suites. The facilities are designed for the utmost in pampering and rejuvenation, and the jewel in the hotelís crown in this regard is its state-of-the-art Centoundici Spa. Simply one of the best in any luxury hotel weíve ever encountered, it features a team of highly skilled therapists, high-tech equipment, and restorative services based on the natural healing properties of white grapes and other naturopathic modalities. The hotelís team of chefs is genuinely talented, dreaming up inspiring, ingenious, and artful dishes with fine precision. The maitre d'restaurant is truly masterful, as he discreetly orchestrates every detail of your dining experience to bring forth a symphony of culinary melodies coupled with remarkable wine parings.Our Family Loved Most
