Hotel Regina Palace

  • Lake Maggiore, Italy, Stresa

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Regina Palace is as grand as it gets. Think frescoed ceilings, chandeliers and rich colours throughout. It sits proudly on the lakefront promenade, set back from the road by established gardens. At the back, you’ll find the pool where you can pull up a lounger and relax. There’s a snack bar serving drinks all day and if you feel like burning off some energy, there’s tennis courts too.

We can’t get enough of the spa here - its included in the hotel price. Its clever design mimics a subterranean cave and the heated pool has hydro massage jets and sensory colours. It’s a fantastic way to relax. There’s treatments that you can book too (payable locally). When you’ve had enough of relaxing, you’ll be well placed to explore Lake Maggiore. The centre of Stresa is a comfortable stroll away and you can jump on a ferry and be at the Borromean Islands in no time.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour by coach from Milan Malpensa airport.

Stylish Stresa is Lake Maggiore's leading resort. Take your summer holidays in Stresa this year and experience this unforgettably beautiful Italian lake resort. The idyllic Borromean Islands are only a short boat ride away and Monte Mottarone, with its superb views, is easy to reach by cable car.

The lush gardens of Villa Pallavicino and Villa Taranto are well worth a visit. Summer holidays in Stresa take you to a flower filled, fragrant place with a long, landscaped lake front promenade. This links by cable-car and lake ferry to all the resort's main hotels. Imagine crystal clear waters, sparkling blue skies and idyllic lake islands and that's a summer holiday in Stresa in a nutshell.

The old town centre has been partly pedestrianised and comes to life in the evenings as the bars and restaurants spill into the squares. Holidaymakers love summer holidays in Stresa for the smart shops that line the narrow, cobbled streets. And the music! From the end of July to September, Stresa's celebrated International Music Festival offers 25 fantastic classical music concerts.
