Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Tucked away just off the centre of Medieval Sirmione, the Hotel Continental Thermae & Spa boasts a prime position on Lake Garda's southernmost shores. With a mix of modern and traditional interior decor, this lakefront property is the ideal spot for rest and relaxation. Amongst many refurbishments, it has kept its prominent original fixtures including its marble staircase and stunning Murano glass chandeliers. Rooms here are decorated in a classic Italian style with junior suites boasting a more modern decor but offering bright and airy accommodation. 

The facilities on site at the Continental Thermae & Spa are superb with two swimming pools and a private jetty offering you the chance to take a dip in Lake Garda's azure waters before warming up in the thermal swimming pool (open April till October) or sauna. The wellness centre around which the ethos of this superb hotel is built is also home to a salt wall, steam bath, heated relaxation area and outdoor Jacuzzi. Beauty and spa treatments are available to book locally and include treatments exclusive to the Contintental Thermae & Spa such as their iodine therapy which is fantastic for circulatory issues or indeed just resting your feet after a day exploring the resort!

There is a gorgeous lakefront restaurant which opens up onto the outdoor terrace for dinner in the warmer months offering four course dinners using simple and fresh ingredients. The menu changes frequently and features dishes such as rich ragus, homemade arrancini and delectable desserts.

The peninsula of Sirmione stretches out from the southern shore of Lake Garda. The entrance to the Old Town is via the bridge of the 13th Century Scaligero castle with its ‘inland dock’. The colourful, narrow streets are full of interesting shops, restaurants and bars, but are refreshingly traffic-free. As you venture further into the peninsula, the bustling streets give way to a peaceful landscape with a luxuriant vegetation of olive trees, cypresses, laurels and magnolias. A panoramic walk along the shore takes you past bathing beaches to the tip of the peninsula where an old Roman Palace, the Grottos of Catullo, has been excavated. Or you can relax and pamper yourself in the thermal pools of the lakeside Aquaria Spa.
