Well, where do I begin? Let's start at arriving at Verona airport in Italy. The bags arrived promptly within 20 minutes of landing. As I walk through to the arrivals lounge, my driver from the hotel is there waiting for me and I am driven from the airport to Lefay Resort & Spa in complete comfort and luxury – this sets the tone for the whole trip from now until I come back to this airport in…

Alison's Review of Lefay Resort & Spa, Lake Garda in Italy
Paul’s Review of Lefay Resort & Spa, Lake Garda
I wasn’t sure what to expect from Lefay, all our client reviews were glowing but I couldn’t quite envisage the Italian wellness scene; how would the indulgences of Italy translate into a healthy holiday? Needless to say, I was blown away! Lefay itself is stunningly located on the mountainside of Lake Garda in Northern Italy, set in beautiful woods and olives groves with breath-taking views...

Lefay is truly a high-class resort, with facilities, staff and food & drink to match. It was excellent for my fitness goals, with highly trained staff. I don’t recall seeing so many good professionals in one same place ever before. It was a little over my initial budget, but I really made the right choice. For anyone looking to book, I would say that this is a world class resort, with incredible service and a very professional approach, so embrace all the treatments and all the health advice you will receive. I’ll take my wife with me next year, and will contact Health and Fitness Travel again, as I received great complimentary treatments!

Everything is perfect, the room, the food the service, the view, the location, the front desk, the spa. A must go. We cannot wait to go again. We were there for 2 days we extended our stay for one extra night because it was so marvelous. The breakfast is awesome. It is great to relax, romantic location.

Where can I start. From the moment you drive through the gates and are greeted by the front of house staff, you'll know you've entered and found something very special. Every member of staff if absolutely fantastic, speak multiple languages and very happy to help with any enquiries. Food was top grade every time, from breakfast, lunch and then dinner. Feel free to walk around in your robes. Relaxation is the key here. The sauna and steam room is amazing, with a no swimming outfits allowed. Everyone embraces it. The Honeymoon at the Lefay resort was the creame da le creame. You don't every have to leave, plenty of stuff to do. Gym, multiple heated pools, sauna, steam rooms, relaxation rooms. And there is also a female only steam/sauna room.
