Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Boasting panoramic views of Lake Garda as well as the luscious gardens surrounding the hotel itself, Hotel Poiano is home to some of the best views the resort of Garda has to offer. The hotel is comprised of various buildings tucked away within the fruit trees scattered through the garden and all the rooms are bright and airy, reflective of their environment.
Outside, there is an Olympic sized swimming pool as well as a smaller children's pool surrounded by sun loungers and umbrellas with gorgeous lake and mountain views. The spa within the hotel boasts an indoor salt water heated pool and whirlpool, sauna and aromatic steam room (local fees apply for entry) and for those looking to stay active during their stay, there are tennis courts (pay locally for use and hire of equipment) and free use of Hotel Poiano's mountain bikes for Inghams guests (subject to availability).

Breakfast is served each morning in the dining room and out on the terrace in warmer weather with both hot and cold options on offer, perfect for starting your day before heading out for a walk along any of the fabulous hiking routes close by. Dinner is a three course affair with choice to suit every taste from grilled swordfish and Salsa Verde to more classic dishes such as spaghetti Pomodoro.

A charming resort on Lake Garda's eastern shore, the bustling town of Garda is one of the lake's finest destinations. The shopping here is varied and the large lakeside Friday market is a popular tradition. Much of Garda is traffic-free, allowing you to safely stroll the old cobbled streets. Regular ferry and hydrofoil services access other lakeside resorts and you can also enjoy a delightful lakeside walk to neighbouring Bardolino.

You can also attend the Verona Opera.
