Grand Hotel Tremezzo launches tree-hugging retreat to encourage healing within nature

Boutique hotel and spa The Grand Hotel Tremezzo on the South-West shores of Lake Como, Italy, has enhanced its wellness offering with the introduction of a new nature-orientated retreat.

Set within 20,000sq m of parkland and gardens, the 90-bedroom hotel and spa overlooks the town of Bellagio, the Riviera delle Azalee and the Grigne mountains. As evidence grows around nature’s wellbeing and health benefits, the team behind the hotel’s T Spa has created a programme to demonstrate how guests can harness nature to boost wellbeing and ground themselves.

The three-hour experience is anchored by 45-minutes of silvotherapy, which is a practice using nature to heal the mind and body that traditionally includes touching, stroking, leaning on or hugging trees.

During the session, a therapist leads guests through breathing and visualisation techniques to help them release physical or emotional anxieties, while they make direct contact with trees in the villa’s private gardens.

The spa team believes this process of physically reconnecting with nature will help guests reap the healing benefits of nature for physical and mental health.

The offering is completed with a two-hour mindfulness ritual and a light and healthy breakfast.

The programme is available exclusively to guests staying at the hotel’s Villa Sola Cabiati – a preserved baroque palace once home to the Dukes of Serbelloni.

For an additional fee, guests of Villa Sola Cabiati can upgrade the package with a guided stargazing meditation at the hotel’s pool – which floats in Lake Como – to further reconnect mind, body and soul.

The package costs €500 (US$578, £424) per person and lasts for three hours.
