Lake Como, Italy
Seventy five rooms in the CastaDiva Resort & Spa are housed in seven villas spread among extensive botanical gardens in the village of Blevio on the eastern shores of Lake Como.
Most have a balcony, terrace or private garden, and each is uniquely decorated and laid out. Rich colours and sumptuous fabrics throughout the bedrooms and public rooms create a Baroque feel.
The property was once the residence of 19th-century opera singer Giuditta Pasta, and old and new combine as eighteenth and nineteenth century buildings now sit alongside very modern touches. For example, the ethereal fountain and light show at the floating swimming pool, which hangs over Lake Como, is accompanied by beautiful arias.
Two private villas on the shores of the lake have their own staff. The three-bedroom Norma is ideal for families while Amina is a one-bedroom love nest.
The huge spa at the CastaDiva has two treatment rooms and four spa suites, with the relaxation area’s glass floor enabling chilled-out guests to see through to an ancient dock below. A relaxation and a hydrotherapy pool join a Swedish sauna, ice cascade and Turkish bath to ensure that you will feel totally pummelled and pampered.
As the sun goes down, sip a drink on the Bellini Bar’s terrace or at the Pool Bar. Follow that with dinner – whether private dining on your terrace or at a table in the romantic candlelit L’Orangerie restaurant, the backdrop will always be the sparkling blue waters of Lake Como.
