Where are the best spas on Lake Garda?
Lake Garda is famous for its thermal centres, which are very suggestive and perfect for being surprised by the beauty of the places as well as the services offered. In fact, this area is home to some of the most popular wellness centres and thermal springs in Italy.
Splendid places to leave stress and tension behind, trying out the different types of massage, the benefits of the thermal waters, the sauna, the emotional shower or taking advantage of the various relaxation areas and pools often overlooking the lake panorama. Here you can spend a single day, a weekend or a whole week; and there is no need to worry if it rains outside because inside, well-being is assured.
But which ones to visit? Let's see them together!
Bardolino and Arco: two irresistible Lake Garda spas with breathtaking views
On the Venetian shore of Lake Garda, in Bardolino, there is a thermal centre that rises from a spring of oligomineral water. This pure spring originates from Monte Baldo and reaches Bardolino without being transformed.
The centre is divided between a massage area, swimming pool and sauna and is known for its detoxifying body programmes and innovative facial and body treatments (with creams made from Bardolino thermal water). With NowMyPlace you can enrich this wellness programme by considering a group yoga class at sunrise with a view of the lake. For this wellness experience, only renowned teachers were involved, students of the masters Renato Turla and Dona Holleman, known for the Jyotim method that helps you control your breath and become aware of your body.
In Arco, on the Trentino coast, there is the Garda Thermae. A cosy, modern wellness & beauty centre, a stone's throw from the lake and with a splendid view of the mountains. The facility can also accommodate families with children, thanks to the pools dedicated to the little ones. Adults, on the other hand, can choose from whirlpools, traditional and holistic massages, saunas, steam baths and personalised fitness classes.
Sirmione: Lake Garda's most famous spas
The thermal baths of Sirmione are among the most beautiful in the whole of Italy, known for the benefits of its waters, its strategic location and the fantastic view of the lake. The waters, of volcanic origin, flow from the springs of the Grotte di Catullo and Grotte di Virgilio, and are useful for the treatment of a number of pathologies, including respiratory and rheumatic diseases.
The caves of Catullus and Virgil are part of the widespread thermal park of Sirmione, which also includes the more modern Aquaria wellness centre, which boasts over 10,000 square metres of wellness area (with thermal pools, sauna, hydromassage and comfort showers) and a huge park. Here, the water is always warm, all year round, making the spa a pleasant experience to treat yourself to in every season.
The ideal, after a day at the spa, is to immerse yourself in the local gastronomic culture, perhaps by choosing one of the many taste itineraries proposed by NowMyPlace in the beautiful resort of Sirmione. For example, you could consider a wine tasting in a designer winery and be enchanted by the history of a local farm, tasting wines and other local products. Another idea could be to indulge in a dinner-tasting in a vineyard under the stars or try a cooking class on Lake Garda with chefs.
Comano, the spa centre on the Trentino side of Lake Garda
The Comano thermal baths are a true natural paradise. They are located a few kilometres away from Riva del Garda, surrounded by a 14-hectare park. The thermal water gushes out at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites and is used to treat the skin and purify the body.
The perfect place to relax, walking barefoot in the park, meditating or trying one of the many herbal essential oil massages (with mountain pine and silver fir, for example) with their draining and balancing properties.
With NowMyPlace, Comano will remain in your heart. In the Valley, in fact, you can try a unique experience: a tasting of typical zero-kilometre products in the old barn of a small local farm. A way to learn the story of Arianna and her grandfather Catullo, from whom she inherited passion and activity, and rediscover the value of the land and its products.
Lazise: the outdoor thermal park
13 hectares and a garden full of rare and ancient plants: this is the thermal park of Lazise, also known as the Villa dei Cedri thermal park in Colà. In this beautiful place, surrounded by nature, you can immerse yourself in the waters of the outdoor thermal pools with hot water or experience the benefits of the sweat grotto.
An outdoor wellness experience that will leave you open-mouthed by the beauty of its landscape. To relax even more, you can try a meditation and yoga activity near the lake, deciding between an individual or group yoga class to connect body and mind. Beautiful, isn't it?
Lake Garda, spas for two: the romantic option
The spas of Lake Garda are perfect for a relaxing break on holiday, even for just one day. They are all beautiful places, with exceptional views of the lake and mountains, surrounded by nature. Precisely for this reason, the thermal baths confirm themselves as a beautiful experience that is also worth living as a couple by booking a romantic weekend in one of the centres we have just suggested.
With NowMyPlace, you can also combine spa activities with boat trips to the lake or wine tastings among the vineyards to make the experience unforgettable.

Close to Lake Garda is a splendid thermal centre: Aquardens, in Santa Lucia di Pescantina, in the province of Verona. Surrounded by greenery, in the hilly landscape of Valpolicella, it is easily reached by car (or by other means). It is recommended for everyone, especially families with children, because it is full of fun attractions, refreshment points and services dedicated to the little ones.
Its strong points? The 14 thermal water pools, the 220 hydromassage stations, the five wellness paths and the five saunas and Turkish bath cabins. In addition, you can choose the type of admission (daily or a few hours), leaving room for activities to explore the area and the city of Verona.
