Grand Hotel Fasano
A journey back in time to past epochs in the noble luxury hotel directly on Lake Garda
7 June 2020
Once upon a time, not so long ago, there was a noble castle directly on Lake Garda, surrounded by a 12,000 m2 What sounds like the beginning of a fairy tale is in fact the beginning of your holiday at the Grand Hotel Fasano! Swap your stressful everyday life for the lightness of being. Check in with us at this exceptional, elegant 5-star luxury hotel in Gardone Riviera.
A journey into the past
If walls could talk, they would probably have a lot to tell at the Grand Hotel Fasano. The castle was built in 1888 as a hunting lodge for the Austrian imperial family and soon developed into a hotel for the well-heeled elite. Upon entering the building, we join the long list of important personalities who have visited here: For example, Paul Heyse, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, Gustav Klimt and Prince and Princess Albrecht zu Schaumburg-Lippe. After the hotel had been turned into a hospital during the war and was severely damaged, it was restored and reopened in 1948. Since then it has become one of the most exclusive luxury hotels on Lake Garda and beyond. What makes the Grand Hotel Fasano so special today? It is above all the comfort of the 5-star hotel, the excellent cuisine and the noble wellness area, paired with the deliberately preserved noble style of past eras.
A stay at the Grand Hotel Fasano is not only a journey into the past, but also into the future - at least as far as its great cuisine is concerned, which we claim is years ahead of its competition. The culinary centre of the Grand Hotel Fasano is the gourmet restaurant "Il Fagiano", which offers everything that the cuisine of Lombardy and Northern Italy has to offer. Freshly caught fish with the best view can be enjoyed on the beautiful lake terrace of the Trattoria "Il Pescatore", while you can look forward to traditional Italian dishes at the "Magnolia". Afterwards, we warmly recommend toasting to the Dolce Vita with a cocktail at the beach club "La Darsena" - musical accompaniment included.
Relaxation or active?
Just do nothing for once and put your feet up or spend your holiday actively? That is entirely up to you. Everything is possible, nothing is compulsory! Because you can never get enough of wellness anyway, at the Grand Hotel Fasano you will find several wellness and spa areas on 3.500 m2 in front of you. The Aqua Spa, reminiscent of an ancient Roman thermal bath, promises absolute relaxation. Massages, facials and body treatments are available at the exclusive Aveda Destination Spa, of which there are only two in Italy. And in the new Aqua-Parc bathing area you can dive into the water and simply swim away from everyday life.
For those who prefer to seek their happiness on the water rather than in it, Lake Garda offers an almost endless range of water sports. And also to improve your handicap a holiday at the Grand Hotel Fasano is ideal: There are four fantastic golf courses in the immediate vicinity, including the 18-hole golf course Palazzo Arzaga designed by Jack Nicklaus II with the only golf academy approved by PGA Europe or the Gardagolf championship course.
During the day, let yourself be pampered by the sun, the delicacies from the gourmet kitchen and the exclusive spa treatments, before ending the perfect day in the evening with a glass of champagne on your balcony. And while you let your gaze wander over the lake, you are suddenly quite sure that a "happily ever after" does not only exist in fairy tales...
