Overview

A historic and luxurious palace in the countryside – includes a welcome drink, a spa discount and more

The Lowdown

The Court of Arzaga dates back to Roman times, and today, this ancient Italian country palace takes the shape of a five-star hotel: Palazzo Arzaga Hotel Spa & Golf Resort. Beautifully surrounded by 150 acres of breathtaking countryside, this historic property boasts two world-class golf courses and a luxuriously inviting spa. What’s more, it lies moments from Arzaga Golf Club, home to two challenging courses designed by Jack Nicklaus II and Gary Player, where you can enjoy a game surrounded by impressive Alpine scenery.
Refresh yourself with a dip in the shimmering outdoor pool before treating yourself to a massage in the irresistible spa. Head to the course for a light lunch at the Club House Grill before an afternoon spent practicing your swing. As the sun descends behind the towering Alps, you can unwind with a quality local wine in the hotel’s wine cellar and then feast on a three-course dinner beneath the Renaissance chandeliers of Il Moretto restaurant. If lakeside exploration lures you, gorgeous Lake Garda is just three miles away.
Good to know
Please note that a city tax of €2 per person, per night is payable directly to the hotel.

Two words: top notch
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We came twice to this hotel, first 3 nights and then another 2 nights a few days later. The reception was excellent: from the very attentive attendant who took care of our car and luggage on arrival and on departure while chatting with us as if we were family, to the lovely receptionists who looked after us and gave us very good restaurant recommendations for dining out at night, to the breakfast staff and finally the golf staff who had our clubs, trolley and buggy ready - we could not fault any of them. The hotel is old, as mentioned in other reviews, yes, but well looked after, our room (a groundfloor deluxe with a view on the golf course) comfortable and cleaned each day with the bed turned down in the evening. The overall hotel atmosphere very pleasant and relaxing.

The hotel is a 10-15’ drive to Lake Garda which has a very good selection of restaurants. We went to Aquariva (recommended by the hotel) twice and loved it.

Golf was very good, we enjoyed the golf course. To be aware is that if golfing with a buggy, you cannot drive on the fairway and need to stay at all times on the path (unless you have a medical condition in which case they authorise you to drive in the rough - but still, not on the fairway).

We would love to come back for another golf stay.

We stayed there for 3 nights and really love the place. The staff is so lovely and helpful, definitely made us feel very welcome. The breakfast is amazing. We stayed in the residenza closer to the main building and that in my opinion is the nicer bit of the hotel. As I don’t play Golf I cannot rate that, but sipping cocktails by the pool the massage and nice walk is amazing there. Also do try the restaurant, if staying it is italy at its best. We will be back!

Ignorant reception service, pleasant stay
Reviewed 1 month ago

The facility was great, however, I was disappointed by the service when we first arrived. We arrived at around 10.30am and was asked to wait for the room to be ready. It was very hot summer day in early July. We chose to stay outside at the courtyard while waiting, the receptionist should be aware of that. After an hour, no one come to tell us if the room is ready, so we have to go to the reception and asked for some water and if the room is ready. They did not serve us the water and tell us to buy the water at the pool. We did and stay a bit longer at that outdoor lounge area. After more than half an hour, we decided to move inside by the reception, hope the room will get sorted quicker. Only then we find out they have juice and water at the reception and the room is ready. The rest of the stay was pleasant as the facility and breakfast was very good. However, they should have better training for the receptionist.

Amazing

We stayed a few days here to play golf. The palzzo building is impressive and already the little alley up to the entrance is very idyllic. We booked three rooms, one suite and two classic and got an upgrade for the two classic rooms - which was obviously very nice! All these rooms were on the first floor of the palazzo, and our room went out to the backyard, facing east. The sound of the singing birds in the morning is unforgettable! It seems that the rooms on the second floor have just tiny little windows. I am not sure i would like that. Part of the charm of this place is to look outside the window and soak in the amazing nature and view. Anyway, we played golf everyday and the service by the caddy masters was superb. We had two golf carts each day and they did everything for us: packing the right bags to the carts, cleaning the clubs afterwards, just perfect! We also liked the food and service in the hotel, Vito is the best and nicest waiter! Finally we enjoyed the outdoor pool and the terraces, the kids loved the indoor pool. Overall, a fantastic location for a golf holiday with the family!!!

Excellent golf near Garda Lake

Warm hospitality, comfortable room and the golf with 27 challenging holes. As a family we really enjoyed the long weekend. I suggest you to rent a golf cart because of the up and downs and especially for the driving range or the Arnold Palmer course.
This is a place for golfers or for the ones that will relax.
