Poiano Resort is dreamily perched high in the hills above Lake Garda, amid sprawling private grounds, where you’ll find rolling parklands of olive trees and grape vines. It’s surrounded by fragrant rose gardens and has spectacular views of the valley. This is an excellent base for visiting the lake, exploring the stunning countryside and towns of Lombardy and Veneto, or simply unwinding with soothing spa treatments and delicious Veneto cuisine.
The resort is made up of a number of buildings scattered throughout the gardens. You’ll also find an Olympic-sized swimming pool, as well as six tennis courts, a volleyball court and a gym with personal trainers on hand. There are nine golf courses nearby, as well as plenty of places for watersports and mountain biking. The property makes the most of the magnificent views over the valley, with private balconies in each bedroom and a pretty al fresco dining terrace in the Ristorante Poiano.

Be sure to take a ferry trip around the lake to see the many charming little villages, delicious and quaint restaurants and beautiful old churches on its shores.
How to Get There
My family and I stayed here for 2 weeks and we had a great time. The pool is great and the bar/snack area was very good also. Kids had a ball and if you want to get into the town there is a shuttle bus which runs every half hour. We had a two bedroom apt self catering and found the facilities very good. Overall a great hotel and location if you like it quiet and away from the bustle of the town. I would highly recommend.
The poiano hotel is very much recommended. Lovely staff, good food, never seems to be crouded, even when fully booked. The hotel has had some refurbishing done since our previous holidays. 3rd visit now, meanwhile with teenager kids and we’ll be going again!
My family and I spent a week in the Poiano hotel in August 2018 - staying in one of the junior suites.
In summary the hotel was brilliant - with stunning views, courteous staff and a much higher standard of food and facilities than we were expecting.
Garda itself is beyond beautiful and following advice from the Jet 2 rep we explored other parts of Lake Garda. Again, every village is a picture postcard with lots of restaurants and ice cream parlours to choose from.
We will definitely be back!
Facilities ranged from tennis, football, volleyball, gym, spa, yoga under the trees and that was alongside a beautiful pool that offered water polo, water aerobics and activities for the younger children. Or you may choose to relax by the pool and jut take in the beautiful views. Staff are very friendly and helpful and choice of food is wide. Rooms very comfortable with everything you need including the view.
Great position if you prefer to be in a quieter location but transport available to the centre if required. Would definitely return.
Really a place where you get the feeling of "Value for money". A place where serious people are behind ! A unique view to Garda town/lake. A place for children any kind of age. Aircon. nearly everywhere.
