Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

CastaDiva sits in pretty gardens on Lake Como, guaranteeing breathtaking views. It is in the village of Blevio, just 5km from downtown Como - which you can easily reach via the complimentary shuttle provided by the hotel.  

Rooms at CastaDiva Resort & Spa

The rooms, suites and villas feature rich gold, silver and purple tones, alongside opulent marble and mosaic bathrooms. The villas offer private gardens and pools, as well as your very own butlers and chefs - so you won’t have to lift a finger during your stay. The views are showcased with floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious balconies and terraces - look out on the lake and bask in the natural, untouched beauty of this renowned region.

Food & Drink

Enjoy authentic Italian gastronomy with a modern twist at the terrace restaurant, L'Orangerie, where you can dine on the waterfront, and the Giardino Dei Saproi & Grill, where you can sit beneath a glass dome. They are presided over by chefs who have catered for English royalty and American presidents. Try classic Italian dishes such as risotto and CastaDiva’s gourmet signature pizzas, or for something more creative, the peach and grapefruit salad served with a raspberry reduction is a culinary delight.

Finish your day at Bar Bellini, which combines an attractive Art Deco atmosphere with a romantic 1940s cigar lounge ambience. Sit back on the terrace overlooking the lake and enjoy an aperitif at sunset.


The impressive spa is inspired by nature and has four suites centred around the four elements – earth, fire, air and water. It has saunas, Mediterranean baths and vitality pools with hydromassages, but the best feature is the Darsena relaxation area, where you can sit on a chaise longue on the glass floor of an original 19th-century dock, suspended above the lake.

The irresistible pool floats above the water, and you can relax poolside and soak up the sun.

Activities at CastaDiva Resort & Spa

Tucked into the Rhaetian Alps with towering wooded hills and picturesque villages surrounding it, Lake Como is a beguiling natural haven. With its winding shoreline and deep blue waters, it's not surprising it has been attracting travellers since Roman times and now boasts celebrities, notably George Clooney, as its residents.

Visit the grand villas dotted around the lake, such as the 19th-century Villa Elba, which features in the film Ocean's Twelve. If you have a taste for adventure, enjoy a scenic cycle ride or head out on the water for some sailing or water-skiing. You can also climb to the top of the Volta lighthouse to enjoy more panoramic views over the lake and beyond.

Make the most of the hotel's daily shuttle service to downtown Como, with its boutiques, bars and restaurants.
