A Sumptuous Place To Stay: Grand Hotel Tremezzo

Check out all the details about this enchanting property, Grand Hotel Tremezzo, which features an unforgettable stay, amenities, spectacular views of the entire lake and surrounding Alps.

Grand Hotel Tremezzo.

The Grand Hotel Tremezzo is an enchanting property with an imposing lakeside location that instantly transported us to the bygone era of the Grand Tour – arguably one of Italy’s finest. While a main street separates the hotel from the man-made beach club and floating pool, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo offers spectacular views of the entire lake and surrounding Alps.

The hotel’s origins date back to the early 1900s (the era of romantic grand tours, long voyages, and illustrious travellers). Lake Como was already an obligatory stopover on the international tourist circuit and a favourite destination with the elite: rich and cultured foreign visitors from England, Germany, France and Austria, as well as Belgium and Switzerland, and even from Tsarist Russia. Enea Gondola was a gentleman from Bellagio who had travelled widely in Europe with his wife Maria Orsolini. After their return to Italy, they wanted to create something of class and sophistication on one of the world’s most beautiful lakes, a grand hotel that could satisfy the demands of this new type of tourist. The Gondolas chose this extraordinary location, bordering on the gardens of Villa Carlotta, which alone commands the best view of Lake Como.

With 90 uniquely decorated rooms + suites, up to 200 guests can be accommodated at Grand Hotel Tremezzo. Soaring ceilings, gilded furnishings, silk drapes and antique artworks are to be expected when you enter their room. Not to mention the rooftop front suite Balbianello, overlooking the Riviera delle Azalee, boasts the creme de la creme of Bellagio views and a contemporary design sense within. Suite Greta is another top contender with its ample floor plan, reclining sunbeds, golden-hued design direction and spectacular salute to its namesake Hollywood actress.

On the culinary front, there are a few restaurants offered, with plenty of options for all.  The main formal dining room, La Terrazza, offers more formal Italian Fare and doubles as the breakfast room with a delicious buffet.  L’Escale is a fondue-focused restaurant that offers a more casual, fun option. For lunch with a view, T Beach offers an array of fresh cuisine or a classic pizza, and during the summer holds weekly BBQs at night, and DJ parties. But most definitely not least, the classic hotel bar is both luxurious and charming, with light bites served throughout the day and at night.

The super-stylish spa offers treatments from one of the world’s most exclusive, distinguished beauty providers, ESPA. Secretly hidden in the greens of the garden is a rare find for a spa in Europe – the T Spa Suite – a couples suite, where you and your loved one can have the ultimate private spa experience.  From the incredible indoor infinity pool and panoramic relaxation room to the fully appointed modern gym, Grand Hotel Tremezzo’s T Spa is a spectacular oasis, to say the least.

This Lake Como wedding venue finds its stride in sleeping the couple and their guests for their entire stay, along with hosting the major inaugural weekend events like the Welcome Party and Rehearsal Dinner. Guests with counts of 100 and below can celebrate comfortably at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo. It is highly recommended taking advantage of the many group activities they offer for the days surrounding wedding events. Riva boat tours of the lake, cooking classes, wine tastings, spa days, tennis matches, golfing excursions, day trips to Bellagio and other lakeside villages, guided walks through the exotic gardens of neighbouring Villa Carlotta, the endless indulgences are a major part of the appeal.
