Enveloped by verdant gardens of olive and cypress trees, the Hotel Olivi Thermae & Natural Spa is tucked away near the end of the Sirmione peninsula yet still just a few moments’ walk from the town centre. A spa hotel, the Olivi is a wonderful mix of contemporary elegance and with traditional Italian touches reminiscent of a bygone era with marble staircases, alabaster pillars and glittering chandeliers. Rooms here are simple yet incredibly stylish with antique fixtures, rattan furniture and flickers of rose gold and bronze to complement the bright and airy spaces. The stunning premiere rooms are the more contemporary option, split onto two levels with a spiral staircase leading up to a small and cosy seating area.
The restaurant at Hotel Olivi offers a four course half board service with fantastic cuisine inspired by traditional Italian cooking and using local ingredients. Think fresh vongole with fresh egg linguine, dressed ceviche and fish straight from the lake served alongside sumptuous buffets of salads and Mediterranean vegetables. In the gardens, you'll find a small but ample salt water swimming pool with complimentary sun loungers and umbrellas. There is also an indoor swimming pool within the sleek and tranquil spa area which is also home to sensory showers and a Turkish bath, ideal for relaxing after a day of exploring the stunning resort of Sirmione.
