Noteworthy: The spa, which offers breathtaking views of Lake Como and its surrounding mountains, prides itself on giving guests more than just personalized, expert treatments. “That is, after all, what you expect to find at any world-class spa,” says spa manager Martina Zecca. “At T Spa we want our clients to leave with something more: a deep and authentic sense of place, history and genuine passion.” And this, explains Zecca, is the reason the facility sees so many repeat clientele.
Signature Services: T Spa’s menu features three signature rituals (each 110 min./$253): the Lake Como Relaxing Ritual, the Grand Garden Ritual and the Ultimate Hammam Ritual. The Lake Como Relaxing Ritual features a scrub of lemongrass, lime and thyme—all local to the Tremezzina region—plus a foot ritual, muslin-wrapped herbal infusions, full-body rubdown and scalp massage. Inspired by the hotel garden’s fragrant flowers, the Grand Garden Ritual is an aromatherapy experience centered on ESPA’s neroli, lavender and rose geranium body and facial products. The Ultimate Hammam Ritual enables guests to bask in the hammam and take advantage of the suite’s steam room, sauna, rain shower and soaking tub.
