T Spa, Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Lake Como

In April 2015, I made a day trip to Lake Como whilst on a work trip to Milan. It was grey and foggy most of the time but even then, there was something mystical about it. After a pretty manic few months, the Mr. and I jumped at the prospect of returning for a summer break. This time, I intended to properly explore and unwind in Lake Como, and I haven’t looked back since. Last time, we visited the T-spa at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo and we couldn’t wait to return, especially because it has been expanded to include the three-storey Villa Emilia.

This time, we were kindly given a very handy press discount by Grand Hotel Tremezzo (they’ve also kindly allowed me to use a few of their photos where I hadn’t captured). As the T-Spa was just voted “Best Glamourous Getaway” at the Tatler Spa Awards 2016 and Virtuoso Best of the Best spa awards “Best Spa 2016”, I was pretty excited to say the least!

The hotel is super chic, luxurious, charming and pretty. It’s a hotel just brooding with old-world romance; think – the Grand Budapest Hotel filled with the warmest, most charming staff, pastel bean bags and bursts of its orange colour scheme throughout. The spa is almost neoclassical in style with gorgeous mosaic flooring and scents of rose and bergamot everywhere.

Having set ourselves up on the private beach, we spent the morning soaking up the sun on the most stunning floating outdoor pool and laughing at our lack of ability at using the Boomerang app. It was perfect! The pool is literally water on water; the turquoise pool floats directly on Lake Como; the gentle lapping of the waves makes it exceptionally relaxing as you feel like you’re being cradled gently. It’s an unforgettable experience to watch the sun rays shimmer and dance on the surface of the water against a stunning backdrop of mountainous Italian countryside.

After a good sun soak, rotations of bronzing and dipping in the crystal clear pool to cool off, and then a spot of al fresco lunch, we were ready to spa it up. The spa is probably the only thing that could tempt me away from dozing off on the big bean bags by the water!

The spa has recently been renovated so now hosts a Finnish sauna, Mediterranean bath, steam baths, two relaxation rooms, an outdoor jacuzzi, a hammam, the best cold mist shower ever (around 10 degrees Celsius with scents of mint and tea tree), an ice bath and a stunning infinity pool with incredible water jets. It’s become an enchanting oasis and is truly a haven of relaxation with gorgeous laso marble and handcrafted wood furnishings. I absolutely loved it!

Lifestyle Enthusiast - Lake Como - T-Spa

Ileana and the team at the T-spa made us feel like royalty. We spent the afternoon in utter bliss; between the incredible treatments, panoramic views, treatment showers, multiple relaxation rooms and pools, we emerged with the sort of glow only possible after full relaxation. I’ve had ESPA treatments before and they are consistently great so I had high expectations that were met every step of the way. My masseuse, Luna’s Swedish massage was no exception – absolutely fantastic. I also had one of the best facials I’ve ever had when Georgia gave me a rigorous but relaxing personalised ESPA facial. My skin is still glowing (and it’s been three days!)

With the booking of a treatment, you can enjoy all of these facilities so it’s definitely worth allowing plenty of time around a treatment to explore.

I can’t imagine anyone not falling in love with the T-Spa and the Grand Tremezzo Hotel, we absolute did. It’s a must do for a relaxing break in the Italian lakes or a perfect day trip from Milan.

I’d highly recommend the Grand Hotel Tremezzo for one of the best spas I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. It’s a little slice of heaven that I’ll look back on with nostalgia many times for sure. I’ll be back for certain.

  • That floating outdoor pool is fabulous, I love Lake Como

  • I went to Lake Como in May with my parents and we all absolutely loved it. The Grand Hotel Tremezzo was fully booked at the time but based on your review and pictures it looks heavenly!!

    • Thanks for commenting Maggie, it really was heavenly – I had a wonderful time in the spa. I think that's a good reason for you to go back then if you're planning a trip to Italy again time soon. 🙂

  • Wow, I can see why they were voted most glamourous! The Grand Hotel certainly lives up to its name. Thanks for sharing your experiences and the amazing photos!

  • Oh my word! This looks like a movie set – absolutely stunning. Does George Clooney come with the rooms? 😉 Seriously, I have Italy back on my agenda this year and these pics may have convinced me to add a trip to Lake Como. Also, how great does the spa look? Love nothing more than a beautiful chilling area after a great massage!

    • Haha if only! Yes, if you’re there for summer definitely add Lake Como! If short on time it’s an easy day trip from Milan by train too. The spa is fabulous – do try it if you get the chance! I’m so keen to go back as soon as I possibly can!! X
