I went for a short break to Lefay Spa resort in Italy for a spa retreat to relax and rejuvenate. This mountainside wellness resort is located about an hour away from Verona airport and overlooking Lake Garda, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.
I arrived at Verona airport where I was met by a Lefay representative and was driven to the resort. The journey from the airport to the resort was smooth and scenic. The moment I entered Lefay I knew I would enjoy my stay here. The reception area was beautiful and was nicely scented which was refreshing. I was greeted by the friendly staff and given a brief tour of the facilities.I was presented with my schedule of consultations and treatments, along with the weekly timetable of complimentary group activities and classes.
I stayed in the deluxe suite which was luxurious. The bathroom was stocked with Lefay’s own products and the bed was so comfortable. After settling in, I had enough time to check out the infinity pool and the stunning scenic views it had to offer.It was just so nice to just relax by the infinity pool and look out to the stunning scenery whilst drinking one of their delicious smoothies.
The food served at the restaurant was a delight. There’s 2 restaurants, the Trattoria La Vigna (less formal) which is located on the ground floor, and La Grande Limonaia (more formal) on the upper floor. My favourite was the signature Il Limone dessert which I’d highly recommend as a treat for your last night.
The highlight of my stay was the salt lake Salt Lake, ‘La Luna Nel Lago’. This is a small pool of salt water with a glowing moon suspended from the ceiling. The salt in the water is said to have great properties for the skin. It was so serene and calm floating in the ambient water. Absolutely magical!
Another favourite spa treatment was the ayurvedic body massage and a Shirodara; which I must say was one of the best I’ve had outside of India.
I left Lefay relaxed and energised and I’d recommend it to anyone who wants a luxury wellness holiday in a stunning location.
