CASTADIVA RESORT & SPA
CASTADIVA RESORT & SPA is a new concept in lifestyle travel that offers its clientele the ultimate vacation experience. Occupying a majestic spot on the east side of Lake Como in the lovely village of Blevio, it is minutes away from the town of Como and a forty-five-minute drive from Milano Malpensa International Airport. Situated on a lush botanical park, it is truly a magnificent spot for a romantic vacation, epitomizing the qualities that for centuries have drawn discerning travelers to the region: luxury pampering, a wealth of recreational activities, and breathtaking natural surroundings. The core of CastaDiva is the nineteenth-cenury Villa Roccabruna, once home to the famous opera singer and Bellini muse, Guiditta Pasta. Today, it has been renovated into a luxurious five-star resort, the first to be built on Lake Como in over 100 years. In addition to the main resort, with its seventy-three rooms and suites, CastaDiva welcomes guests to stay in a series of small homes and villas that dot the property.
Throughout, one will find the usual amenities available at a property of this caliber, along with personalized touches like Villeroy and Boch soaking tubs, a pillow and sheet “menu” from which guests can customize their materials and fabrics, and bath products created by a Florentine perfumer especially for the resort. This region is renowned for its spas and wellness treatments and CastaDiva is no exception. It offers the ultimate indulgence at the resort’s pool, which is situated on a platform right on the lake, and at the CastaDiva Concept Spa, with its tailor-made approach to restoring balance and wellness that include four VIP rooms offering treatments inspired by the four elements: earth, water, air, and fire. The resort’s gastronomic creations are showcased at L’Orangerie restaurant, which in 2016 announced its partnership with the two-Michelin-starred chef Gennaro Esposito. Esposito, an expert in Neapolitan cuisine who has worked in some of the most renowned restaurants in Europe and Italy, has crafted a menu of modern and classic Italian dishes that can be enjoyed during dinner by candlelight, out on the terrace, or in the privacy of one’s room.
