With perfectly blended elements and surroundings in Lake Garda, this Spa is a place of total relaxation and privacy
On the Venetian side of Lake Garda, Italy, and located within the Belfiore Park Hotel, the Dhara Wellness Center was designed by Studio Alberto Apostoli. The Dhara Wellness Center stretches along an entire floor of the hotel.
Bamboo canes adorn the floor that leads to the Spa. The socializing room has a relaxing atmosphere because neutral tones were used here not to distract people from their conversation, but to calm them down, and is a signature touch of the Spa’s modern design. The focal point of the entire wellness center is a massive olive tree, that was especially integrated in the design in order to enhance the feeling of relaxation.
The geometrical and emotional core of the Spa is a basin of water that is constantly replenished by the natural spring whose waters are utilized almost as a lining as it flows directly onto the bare stone. Within the basin, there is a shower that is made by a particular element that is the local stone and a special Kneipp treatment composed by single pools that are also made in the local stone. The sauna, another strong element of the center, is created entirely in stone and is characterized by a large glass partition for the unusual transfer to the basin of water. Alongside the sauna is a vapor bath, covered by a special mosaic in resin whose parts “digitally” recreate the intertwined branches of the lemon trees. The relax area is positioned at the end of the center and offers a magnificent view of the lake that is only a couple of meters away”.
According to the designers, “the project aimed to create a balance between the classical elements of the Spa by carefully studying spaces, forms, materials, colors and lights. By taking advantage of the local materials, the particularities of the location and a natural spring that was discovered during the construction, the SPA obtains a sensorial environment that is alive with every construction detail and material that was specially designed for it“.
