Grand Hotel Tremezzo claims to be the home of the world’s most stylish spa
The shores of Lake Como in Italy are best known as the retreat of Hollywood celebrities, world leaders and jet-setting tycoons, and not without reason. Take the T Spa at Grand Hotel Tremezzo, for instance.
Ensconced in an 18th century Villa Emilia and spanning 1,000 sq m, T Spa wraps the patron within the folds of its authentic marvels: be it the design and decorative materials, from the teak floors to the handcrafted wood furnishings made by Italian artisans and the magnificent Hammam covered with white Lasa marble, or the spectacular panoramic views over Lake Como and the exclusive organic treatments.
T Spa’s indoor infinity swimming pool which is a strip of azure creates an illusion that it’s connected directly to Lake Como. Meandering through the ground floor of the building, T Spa Infinity pool creates different experiences, depending on the requirement. The two baths offer five different types of Jacuzzi, some of which hidden away in the private grotto, such as beds with air bubbles, cascades to massage the back, water jets and oxygen bubbles from the mosaic bottom of the pool to massage the soles of the feet and finally the hydro massage in the circular lake-front Jacuzzi.
Dating back through antiquity, heat has been used by different cultures to promote relaxation, with T Spa continuing this rich tradition, offering a myriad of ways to unwind amid the elevated temperatures providing multiple benefits. Moving between steam, dry heat and ice; from Mediterranean steam room to sauna with panoramic views to the ice fountain and a heated relaxation area decked in opulent onyx stone, all combine to allow mind and body to indulge in the deepest states of relaxation relieving all aches and pains, and improving circulation.
For the ultimate privacy and elegance, T Spa Suite is an incredible experience for couples, a completely secluded small villa designed with warm wood, it combines a sumptuous whirlpool tub, sauna and Turkish bath with contrast shower and cascade jets. Once treatments are complete, guests are invited to enjoy the villa’s private garden to meditate or luxuriate in the lush green surroundings. The signature treatments are designed by ESPA exclusively for T Spa, incorporating the finest herbs that naturally grow on the shores of Lake Como and others inspired by the fragrant flowers of the Grand Hotel Tremezzo garden.
For finishing touches such as manicures and pedicures, the Mosaic Studio is a delightful space featuring an authentic Venetian mosaic floor, lovingly preserved and refurbished alongside a focal glass Penta-light chandelier. The manicure tables themselves are tailor made in deep grey oak keeping in tune with the multifarious floor. Such intricate attention to detail makes T Spa a true lakeside oasis of wellness for both body and mind.
T Spa is housed in Grand Hotel Tremezzo, a family-owned enterprise dating back to 1910. The 90-room hotel commands one of the most enchanting positions on Lake Como with spectacular panoramic views of both the town of Bellagio, the Riviera delle Azalee and the stunning Grigne Mountains. A “hidden” T Spa Suite is offered to those looking to experience a whole new private-spa experience.
