Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Nestled in manicured gardens, just a five minute stroll from the centre of Desenzano, the Hotel Park is renowned  for its excellent service. The communal spaces here carry a heavy Art Deco influence with flashes of azure blue, gold and mahogany scattered throughout. Rooms are spacious and elegant with views of the gardens, historic town centre or the lake. The recently renovated restaurant is luxurious and modern serving up an extensive buffet breakfast each morning and gourmet food each evening. There is also a  bar terrace which spills out into the verdant gardens and in the warmer evenings is littered with candles, fire pits and lanterns creating a truly romantic and enchanting atmosphere.

The rooftop is home to a gorgeous pool offering panoramic views of the town and lake as well as the majestic mountains beyond. Sun loungers, parasols are provided free of charge and from June, the pool bar opens meaning you can enjoy a refreshing and traditional Italian aperitif as you bask in the Desenzano sun.

Transfer time: approx. 45 mins by coach from Verona airport.

A holiday in Desenzano combines a picturesque lakeside resort setting with the vibrant atmosphere of a thriving Italian community.

Narrow streets lead up to the medieval castle that overlooks the town and offers panoramic views of the lake. Desenzano has two harbours and two public beaches.

The resort has the best ferry and hydrofoil services on the lake so the main lakeside towns, including Garda, Peschiera and Sirmione, are very accessible. Bus and train connections are excellent and Verona, Venice and Padua are within easy reach.
