Originally built as the property’s darsena, or “boathouse,” many centuries ago, The SPA at Il Sereno has been transformed by renowned designer Patricia Urquiola into a contemporary oasis while remaining reflective of the building’s history and Lake Como destination. Featuring treatments and products by Swiss-based skincare line Valmont, The SPA includes three treatment rooms, sauna and steam room finished with Italian tiles.

The SPA has a private outdoor relaxation area with a plunge pool suspended over the water provides a serene place to cool off and unwind. Keeping in the Sereno Hotels tradition of all rooms facing the water; two of the intimate treatment rooms at The SPA at Il Sereno have wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows that look directly onto Lake Como. The third treatment room is an expansive couples’ treatment room with a built-in shower. Throughout The SPA, the cool tones of the centuries-old granite walls and green accents that reflect the deep tones of Lake Como create an instantly calming environment.
