VILLA & PALAZZO AMINTA
HOTEL BEAUTY & SPA
VILLA & PALAZZO AMINTA HOTEL BEAUTY & SPA is a peaceful haven facing Lake Maggiore between the towns of Stresa and Baveno and overlooking the Borromeo Gulf and islands. Once a private residence, the nineteenth-century property has been transformed into a five-star luxury hotel by the Zanetta family, the owners since 2000. They have brought the villa back to its original splendor, combining a fairy tale feel with elegance, taste, and the highest standards of amenities and service. The only hotel on Lake Maggiore that has been designated a “Leading Hotel of the World,” the property is lavishly decorated with antique furniture, stuccos, frescoes, Murano chandeliers, precious wallpapers, arabesques, and Oriental arches. The romantic hotel guestrooms range from midsize to spacious, each one tastefully and comfortably adorned. All open onto balconies or terraces with garden or lake views. We are partial to the suites, with their wonderful lake front balcony views, all personalized and located on the top fourth floor.
The luxurious Palazzo Aminta Beauty & Spa offers exclusive programs to rebalance the body and soul. Escape into their Zen meditation room for the deepest level of relaxation or indulge in a host of other healthful and beautifying services. Leisure activities abound, including special boat excursions leaving from the hotel docks for an unforgettable visit to the Borromeo Islands. Along with all their fine service and amenities, Villa & Palazzo Aminta also contains two wonderful restaurants. Ristoranti Le Isole serves an extensive breakfast buffet, lunch, and dinner in a beautiful dining room offering panoramic lake views, which can be enjoyed al fresco during the warmer months. As one of the top restaurants in the region, Ristoranti I Mori is especially noted for its wine list, carefully chosen for discerning palates. But the real wow factor there is native-born executive chef Giuseppe Vigna, who utilizes only the best Piedmont ingredients to deliver imaginative cuisine rooted in his family’s heritage and treasured recipes.
