Choose from classic hotels at the water’s edge on Lake Como; sleek spa resorts on Lake Garda and luxurious hotels that epitomise the jet set life; discover the best hotels on the Italian Lakes with Kuoni
This part of Italy is all about waking up each morning to breathtaking views over the water, dining al fresco overlooking the gardens and mountains, and spending the day pottering about the charming cafés, boutiques and family-run gelaterias, or exploring nearby towns before lounging by the pool in your beautiful lakeside hotel. Choose from classic hotels like Grand Hotel Menaggio at the water’s edge on Lake Como; sleek spa resorts such as Lefay Resort & SPA Lago Di Garda with its innovatively-designed spa home to saunas, grottos, indoor and outdoor pools, including a saltwater pool and an infinity pool overlooking the lake; and luxurious hotels that epitomise the jet set life (Grand Hotel Majestic has its own private beach and jetty, plus botanic gardens). Families are well looked after here, with plenty of hotels that offer services and facilities for the little ones, as well as interconnecting rooms and babysitting services – we love Hotel Caesius Thermae & Spa Resort which has five swimming pools, two of which are just for children.
