Do you feel the urge to escape and set sail for new shores? At our wellness hotel, you will enjoy unforgettable days of complete, unimpeded freedom in one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places of power in the world. The mountains, the lake, the thick forest, the lush Mediterranean vegetation – these are the foundations for a rewarding holiday in harmony with nature. A holiday where you can dive down to discover the depths of the lake and your soul before climbing up to the peaks of happiness. Here, where sky and earth, water and air merge together, you will discover well-being in its natural form.
The beauty of this area was weaving its enthralling magic as far back as the Lepontine Celts. They settled in Val Menaggio to the north-west of Lake Como, not far from our hotel, where they lived with a profound connection to nature. You will also feel this magical bond, the divine power of nature, when you retreat from the world at ARIA Retreat & SPA. Our hotel offers you a comprehensive wellness programme focusing on the three elements water, air and earth. Discover the unique feeling of absolute weightlessness in the adults-only SPA area of our wellness hotel. The history of the Celts and their philosophy of life inspired us to develop an exclusive SPA concept for our retreat, which is the only one of its kind between Como and Lugano. The Celts also gave us inspiration for the name of our SPA area, CEò, whose light-flooded architecture invites in the surrounding park and merges with nature to form a single entity. Over an area of 1,500m2, you will experience countless soul-freeing moments. Moments that will bring you back to earth. Moments that will let your soul take flight. Close your eyes, fall back into the embrace of our wellness hotel near Lugano with panoramic sauna, and discover new realms of well-being during one of the many treatments for her, for him, and for couples.

No people had such deep bonds with nature as the Celts. For them, nature was a unique place of power, a source of inspiration – just like our adults-friendly wellness hotel. The Celts were also our source of inspiration for the name of our SPA: CEò, a Celtic word meaning mist. It enfolds us, giving us new vitality, as it embodies the combined power of the elements: the lightness of air, the likeness of smoke rising from the fire, the moisture of water. The Celts attributed magical powers to the mist, which enshrouds you like a veil, hiding you from sight. Let yourself be enveloped in indescribable joy at our wellness hotel with SPA escape.
Time seems to stand still. All that matters is here and now, you and your needs. Trained hands gently glide over your back and relieve even the deepest tension with targeted movements.
