Panoramic Hotel Plaza ****
A historic four-star hotel in Abano Terme, a renowned spa town, the Panoramic Hotel Plaza is an eleven story building in the pedestrianized town centre. It offers stays in pursuit of peace of mind and physical wellbeing, but is also an excellent base from which to explore the cities of Padua, Verona, Venice, and Vicenza and the Villas along the Brenta River and the area around Venice, which are all within easy reach by car or train. The hotel has large and elegant communal areas – from the lobby to the bar and breakfast rooms – and has 3 interconnected swimming pools supplied with water from the natural springs. It has an outdoor swimming pool open in the summer, 2 separate Jacuzzi pools, one inside and one in the garden, a beauty centre with rooms or wellness treatments, a meeting room, and a private car park. The hotel bar provides entertainment in the evenings, while the hotel provides free bicycle hire and electric car hire for visiting the town and the surrounding Euganean hills. The hotel is eco-sustainable, and uses renewable energy sources, heated by the natural hot springs to reduce CO2 emissions to a minimum.
The Panoramic Hotel Plaza has three interconnected swimming pools, two outdoors and one indoors. They fed by the natural hot springs, which heat them to between 33°C and 36°C, and have water games and hydro-massage areas. In the summer, the hotel opens the other outdoor pool, situated on a panoramic terrace 10 meters above the ground, overlooking the hotel gardens and accessible via elevator. The spring water, supplied by two spring wells and a silo, has salty, bromine, and iodine properties. It is used to prepare the mud baths and is the basis of all the treatments practised at the hotel’s Spa Centre by the team of doctors and specialists, who practise inhalation treatments, fangotherapy, manual physiotherapy massages, and beauty treatments combined with spa therapy, for men and women.

The restaurant also provides menus for guests with specific dietary requirements, including gluten-free and vegetarian options, and once a week organises themed evenings with traditional regional recipes.
