Hotel Olivi Thermae & Natural SPA ****
The Hotel Olivi in Sirmione, one of the most beautiful and popular towns on the shores of Lake Garda, is a luxurious 4-star resort with many exclusive services and facilities, including a Spa that uses water from the natural hot springs of Sirmione to feed the outdoor swimming pool and offers a wide range of massage and beauty treatments. The hotel has a restaurant that serves dishes inspired by traditional Italian cuisine. Two more restaurants open in the summer months, one by the pool, and one out on the terrace that offers panoramic views of Lake Garda. In a territory with an abundance of things to see and do, and with the historic centre of Sirmione just a short walk away, the Hotel is also an ideal location for banquets and receptions, with a function room that can accommodate up to 70 people.
In the midst of the olive trees and just a few steps from the water’s edge, the Natural Spa of the Hotel Olivi has two swimming pools: the outdoor pool contains water from the natural hot springs at 34°C- 36°C and has a wall-mounted hydro-massage area and a Jacuzzi; the indoor pool contains pure rocksalt with a smoothing, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying effect on the skin. The Spa contains two cabins for the Finnish sauna with temperatures at 65°C and 90°C, two cabins for the steam baths with temperatures between 45°C and 48°C and a humidity of 98°C, an ice cascade, sensation showers, and a relaxation area. The Spa also offers a range of massage and beauty treatments, including treatments using almond and citrus fruit extracts, grapes, apples, and chocolate. Massage treatments include sessions for couples, and physiotherapy and holistic massages for the body.
The 55 rooms of the Hotel Olivi in Sirmione are available in Single, Triple, Quadruple, Classic, Superior, and Premier Deluxe room types, and are all equipped with a telephone, safe, minibar, air conditioning, satellite TV with Sky channels, and Wi-Fi internet connection. Superior and Premier rooms also have a balcony overlooking the lake.
The Restaurant "Degli Olivi" within the hotel serves a variety of traditional Italian dishes, accompanied by a rich buffet of vegetables and salads and a selection of local and national wines. During the summer, the poolside restaurant and bar "La Bissa" serves snacks, Italian dishes, and a buffet of vegetables and salads, while the Restaurant "La Limonaia", offers the same services as the main restaurant out on the terrace which provides panoramic views of the Lake as you dine.
The hotel’s services and facilities include:
Sirmione is one of the most interesting places on Lake Garda, with the Rocca Scaligera castle that rises from the waters of the lake; and the Grottoes of Catullus, where you can explore the ruins of a Roman villa and the natural springs. A visit round the shore to Desenzano is a must, with its beautiful historic centre and the remains of another Roman villa. Other points of interest in the area include the Cathedral of Salò, the Vittoriale degli Italiani in Gardone Riviera, Casa del Podestà in Lonato, and several theme parks around the lake such as Gardaland, CanevaWorld, the Parco Natura Viva safari zoo, and Jungle Adventure. Verona is just a short drive from Sirmione, one of the most beautiful cities in Italy where you can visit the Roman Arena that still hosts operas and concerts, or Juliet’s balcony, where Shakespeare lovers flock. The rest of the city is a maze of monuments and historical buildings, such as Piazza Erbe, the Basilica of San Zeno, and Palazzo del Podestà. Mantua, a little further away, is just as impressive, with its medieval towers and bridges, Piazza delle Erbe and Palazzo Te.
