Situated on the shores of Lake Como, CastaDiva Resort & Spa is a romantic five-star hotel in Italy — a perfect blend of past and present, of art and culture, of tradition and modern comfort.

CastaDiva is the first and only eco-friendly Resort on Lake Como, adopting solutions that fully respect the environment and meet high standards of eco-sustainability: each building fulfils the most stringent environmental criteria, in harmony with the natural setting.

Special solutions make the resort unique, such as the use of solar power, the production of clean energy through a heat exchanger that draws water from the lake, and an adjustable air-conditioning system in each suite.

Thanks to its magnificent yet secluded location, guests can enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience with unparalleled views, unbeatable scenery and moments of privacy. The resort is only three miles from downtown Como and 35 miles from Milano Malpensa International Airport.

The warm ambience is inspired by one of the first owners, the opera singer Giuditta Pasta.

History reveals itself along the paths and in the natural falls, surrounded by a lush botanic park that boasts various species of age-old trees, covering an area of approximately 6.5 acres.

The spa is the largest and most exclusive on the lake, with four private spa suites, inspired by the four natural elements (water, air, fire and earth), excellent therapists and wonderful treatments, and a spectacular path that leads out to the outdoor floating pool. There’s also a high-profile gourmet experience offering traditional Italian cuisine with a modern twist.

Massimiliano Mandozzi is the executive chef at the resort. He creates unique and memorable gastronomic experiences based on products combining Italian traditions, creativity and taste.

Menus and recipes change with seasons in order to offer fresh products and traditional dishes to offer an unforgettable gourmet experience for the most demanding and refined palates.

CastaDiva Resort & Spa is managed by Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. In Spring 2019, it’ll reopen as Mandarin Oriental Lake Como.
