Luxury hotels with stunning vistas, private pools, customized activities, and personal trainers. Lake Garda is increasingly becoming the protagonist of five-star vacations, attracting a rising number of foreign visitors to all of its coasts. There is an increase in British and Americans, in addition to the ever-present Germans, Swiss, and Austrians. The increase from Arab countries, notably Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the Emirates, is also significant and proportional to the construction of new luxury hotels. In addition, the foreign presence is spread evenly throughout the year, also because of climate change and progressively longer summers.
Increasing luxury structures
Ad hoc experiences, privacy, and elegance. This is what drives the most affluent travellers. There are 35 four-star hotels, 20 superior four-star hotels, one five-star hotel, and two luxury five-star hotels on the Veronese shore. A total of 58 structures in the area were assigned a “high ranking.” Even on the Brescian coast, which has traditionally been known for its exclusive tourism, the situation is similar. From Sirmione to Limone, more and more international real estate businesses are investing in the lake by building five more luxury hotels to add to the dozen already in place. In Garda Trentino, on the other hand, there are more than 40 four- and five-star facilities, with a 5% increase from 2022.
The new luxury hotels
Cape of Senses in Torre del Benaco (Veronese coast), for example, is a new luxury hotel that mixes luxury with outdoor sports. Its guests, who must be over the age of 14, can enjoy a stage on Lake Garda as well as a variety of scheduled outdoor activities. Prices range from 750 euros in the low season for the cheapest room to 1800 euros in the high season for the Sky Pool Suite.
The Falkensteiner Park Resort Lake Garda is under construction on the Brescia side. For a 140 million euro investment, there are 97 rooms and 170 apartments spread across eleven buildings. The first section will open in 2025 to accommodate rising demand, particularly from Germans, Italians, Swiss, and Austrians.
