Eala

Lake Garda spa hotel inspired by nature, Celtic mythology and minimalism


A five-star hotel and spa has opened in the Italian town of Limone sul Garda. Set back into a cliff face, the new destination gazes out across the iconic Lake Garda.

Opened in May, Eala is owned by the local Risatti family who’ve run accommodation around the lake for three generations. Its namesake and philosophy are inspired by Eala, a swan from Celtic mythology that interprets dreams. The aim is to transport guests to the retreat of their dreams.

The location was realised by architecture firm Studio Gesia and influenced by the surrounding landscape which is known for abundant lemon groves and stunning panoramas.

The studio has characterised the 67-room hotel and two-floor 1,500sq m spa with a palette of neutral tones and curved and enveloping lines, recalling the shapes of the lake, sun and moon.

Spa guests can explore a menu of cellular treatments by Team Dr Joseph alongside facials, scrubs, wraps and massages on Lemi beds, plus services for hair, nails and make-up.

Its core offering consists of eight rituals inspired by different Lake Garda towns, each harnessing fragrant natural ingredients, including bitter orange, lemon, mint leaves and lavender flowers.

Italian wellness consultancy and supplier Starpool helped animate the spa journey with a steam bath, ice fountain, experience showers, heated loungers, Kneipp pathways and two eye-catching saunas.

The first Finnish sauna offers views of the lake and is completed with deep dark wood reminiscent of local Alpine trees. Meanwhile, the second option is a Mediterranean sauna – offering a less intense thermal experience – which incorporates a refreshing citrus scent powered by local lemons.

In addition, guests can access a hyrdopool, relaxation nest, Technogym workout space plus two indoor pools and an outdoor infinity pool.

The hotel also includes five spa suites equipped by Starpool, with open-plan bathrooms, steam baths and outdoor saunas.
