QC Terme Grand Hotel Bagni Nuovi *****

The Salone dei Balli is very grand and has large windows looking out over the valley, Murano lampshades on the ceiling and a decorated fire place, whilst in the area where high society dinners used to take place is now one of the hotel’s two restaurants which can hold up to 200 guests. This is also a prestigious location for meetings, congresses, banquets, events and even weddings thanks to the fact that at Grand Hotel Bagni Nuovi di Bormio guests can access the spa directly from their rooms.
