    Lefay Spa and Hotel can be found located nestled in 11 hectares of natural park land on the banks of Lake Garda. And if youíre looking for a hotel with a view, then this is the place for you.

    This hotel marks a divergence in entrepreneurs Alcide and Liliana Lealiís career paths. Originally in the airline business, having founded Air Dolomiti, which offered the highest quality of service for businessmen commuting from Northern Italy to the rest of Europe, the Lealiís launched Lefay Resorts in 2006, lending their impeccable service experience to the hotel trade. And weíre very glad they did.

    ďA particularly special experience is swimming in the infinity pool looking over Lake GardaĒ

    Upon arrival, we were stunned by the hotelís wonderful location. With unspoilt views across Lake Garda, this is a seriously special spot. We were warmly welcomed and efficiently checked in.

    During our stay, we experienced the deluxe junior suite, which boasted incredible views over Lake Garda. Being an eco-friendly hotel, we were delighted to learn that everything in the suite is 100% natural, from the wood floor to the soaps and shampoo. The suite itself was extremely comfortable, and as an added bonus, it also included our own private balcony, complete with table and chairs, where you can really relax and enjoy the stunning views.

    Our suite was definitely a highlight for us, but another incredible selling point is the spa and swimming facilities. Complete with an indoor pool, as well as two large outdoor pools, there is certainly no shortage of places to swim here. You can even swim through from indoors to outdoors through an automatic door. A particularly special experience is swimming in the infinity pool looking over Lake Garda; itís simply magical.

    Another highlight of the spa is its sauna facilities. There are five saunas in total; the Aromatic Sauna (stress eliminating), the Caligo Sauna (muscle and tension relaxation), the Olive Tree Sauna (detoxifying), the Water and Fire Sauna (metabolic stimulation), and the Lady Sauna (florally perfumed, for women only).

    Aside from swimming, during our visit I also opted to have a massage. I chose the Sport - La Brezza Accanto Al Confine massage, which is a rebalancing and muscle focused, relaxing hypertonic muscles and increasing the tone of those that are too relaxed. It was divine. Afterwards, I also experience the La Luna nel Lago salt-water lake, which was also beautifully relaxing. I would definitely recommend booking in for a treatment during your stay.

    If youíre looking for something a little more energetic however, you are also in luck. There are numerous walking routes around the resort, which are also a must do whilst there. And if youíre just looking for a great meal, look no further than the hotelís two restaurants - La Grande Limonaia, and La Vigna. La Grande Limonaia is Lefayís main restaurant that is also open to non hotel residents in the evenings, with Trattoria alla Vigna open for lunch and dinner, exclusively to residents.

    If youíre looking for a beautiful Italian stay, an eco-conscious resort, or a detox retreat, then Lefay Spa and Hotel is certainly the place for you. We were very impressed with our experience from start to finish.
