The Review

In the spa town of Abano Terme, just seven miles from Padua, the Abano Grand Hotel is a destination for getting away from it all, with high-end spa treatments and a garden setting made for total relaxation.

Decorated in rich Italian marble, the lobby is grand but not stuffy, though the upscale atmosphere may be a bit of a different experience for traditional spa-goers. The tony vibe continues in the 189 guestrooms, with options for couples and single travelers as well. The rooms are large and feel aristocratic, decorated in vibrant colors and Louis XV–style furnishings, with marble bathrooms and hardwood floors. Many rooms overlook the gorgeous Euganean Hills surrounding Abano Terme.

There are also a variety of facials and traditional massages for those looking for something more basic. Overall the spa is geared toward anti-aging and anti-stress, though a simple stroll through the grounds here could easily help with that.

A lovely terrace with sweeping views of the hills is the place to unwind with an aperitivo after a day spent hiking or sightseeing in the nearby cities of Padua and Venice. For dinner, the on-site restaurant, Pietro d’Abano, serves delicious regional cuisine. And to fully live the European lifestyle, make it a late dinner; the restaurant is open to guests every day until midnight.

Abano Grand Hotel – Abano Italy

As world travelers who have experienced many first-rate hotels, we are happy to share our wonderful experience at this location.
We shared this vacation with two other couples and all had given this hotel high rating experience.

This hotel is managed by Paolo Tacchetto, who is doing an exceptional job. Paolo seems to be involved in every aspect of the operation and makes sure that guests get top notch attention and service.

Abano Grand Hotel is an old time classic - where the elegance is accentuated with grand furnishings, candle lit dining, elegant room accommodations and three large mineral water swimming pools.

We were made feel comfortable and welcome.
The staff is always presentable, immaculate and helpful.
We complement the chef and his staff for daily creativity and presentation of the delicious meals.
Our maître d’, Johnny, was a gem who anticipated our needs and made sure that ‘…everything is satisfactory – at the moment…”.

During our three weeks at the hotel we enjoyed in addition to great meals and spa treatments, the convenience of the hotel’s location which allowed us to take day trips to Padua, Verona, Bologna and Venice.

I fell in love with Abano Therme and GB hotels!

I write reviews on tripadvisor very seldom, but my stay at Abano Grand hotel was so nice that I would like to share my impressions with everybody.
Everything was just amazing: food, service, spa, treatments - everything!
Even though I am not a huge fan of mud therapy - I tried it at Abano Therme and was very happy with the result. The facial treatment is something very special here - for me it was cherry on the cake.
We spent only few days at the property, but still we can feel some positive changes in our health.
Thank you very much Chiara and the team - it was truly perfect!
And I forgot - the new swimming pool is fantastic!

Simply amazing!

I have been all over the world and this place left me speechless. The food is incredible, the service is out of this world and the place is serenity personified. We are returning as soon as we can, and I do not write that about many places that I have visited. I can recommend to anyone, but shhh, do not tell too many otherwise it will lose its specialness and status as an oasis of calm

Return visit - it’s like coming home !

It’s been a while since I have been back to the Abano Grand Hotel, and I was thinking about trying somewhere (or someplace) new. But once I walked through the door and the same staff was there, same room, even the same wine on the table for me - it felt like home and I was glad to be back! It’s truly amazing how many times people keep coming back to this place, and I met some couples and groups of friends who had been coming 10 or 20 years . On this visit, I was able to enjoy amazing weather at the outdoor pools (I have come before in winter or early spring when that wasn’t as much of an option) and ended up often having a cappuccino outside while relaxing. The food remains delicious and the mud treatments as professional as ever. I tried a new massage this time - the Ayurvedic Special - and really enjoyed it. Also walked over to a sister property, the metropole, to do a Tibetan Bell treatment which was so relaxing. The therapist has trained in Nepal so it was fun to have that flavor of Asia in Italy. The place runs like clockwork, which also adds to the relaxation... and if there is anything special you need, the general manager Paolo will see to it that it happens. If you are thinking about Abano, I wouldn’t think twice about choosing the Grand . I will be back again !
