With a long weekend fast approaching, surely this has to be one of the best places to go to unwind before the festive season…?
Party season is almost upon us, but with a long weekend coming up, one last getaway to destress can be forgiven. And what better place to relax than at the T Spa at Grand Hotel Tremezzo, on the side of Lake Como in Italy.
There are many reasons why this spa is known as one of the most exclusive spas in the world. Whether it’s the location in the 18th century Villa Emilia sat nestled beautifully beside Lake Como, or the design and decorative materials of the spa itself, from the teak floors to the handcrafted wood furnishings made by Italian artisans, and the magnificent Hammam covered with white Lasa marble, to the spectacular panoramic views of its surroundings, the luxury is always evident.
The most beautiful feature of T Spa is the indoor infinity swimming pool which is a strip of azure, leading to the 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.
The Hammam suite offers a traditional Turkish bath in a luxuriously large and airy chamber with a domed ceiling made of precious Italian Lasa white marble, designed to revitalize mind and body and to allow deep cleansing of the skin and thorough purification, all of which translates into softer, more elastic skin with a great glow. Alongside cell renewal, the steam has a soothing effect on skin problems. For an experience that involves all the senses of the body, T Spa features emotional showers, a wellness programme that combines cold water and hot water with scents, sounds and colours, all designed to relax the body.
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.
