Grand Hotel Victoria Concept & Spa

Lake Como’s historic hideaway

Quietly nestled between striking snow-capped peaks and deep blue waters, Grand Hotel Victoria Concept & Spa looks as though it's been plucked from another era. The 19th-century neoclassical facade may harken back to a time of Hollywood glamour, but this Lake Como escape’s recently refreshed interiors and sumptuous creature comforts are anything but antiquated.

A beautiful blend of past and present gives this historic hideaway a timeless appeal. A contemporary color palette and modern furnishings add rather than detract from ornate chandeliers and gorgeous molding. Lakefront views can be enjoyed privately from the comfort of your balcony or among friends at fine-dining venue 1827’s spacious wrap-around terrace.

If you can tear yourself away from the luxury hotel’s stunning pool and serene spa, myriad adventures lie just outside your doorstep. And when you return, lake-view soaking tubs await to offer a taste of la dolce vita.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Grand Hotel Victoria Concept & Spa enjoys a secluded location just outside the quiet town of Menaggio, which means plenty of privacy for hotel guests. Those looking to explore beyond the luxury hotel’s grounds can hop aboard a boat for the short ride across the lake to Bellagio or other quaint lakeside towns.
  • Anticipatory service is the name of the game at this Lake Como hotel. From a prosecco-enhanced greeting to a remote room key reprogramming (should you have issues entering your accommodations), staffers are poised to handle just about anything.
  • Plan to spend at least a few hours luxuriating at Erre Spa. Chromotherapy showers, a rejuvenating Kneipp path and a Himalayan salt room are just a few of the pre- or post-treatment indulgences you can expect to enjoy in this serene escape.
  • A gorgeously manicured central courtyard houses a pool that’s ideal for a hot summer day but the lake is the highlight here. Make the most of your Lake Como getaway with a sailing excursion or a relaxing picnic and wine tasting on the water with the mountains as a dramatic backdrop.
  • Breakfast at Grand Hotel Victoria Concept & Spa’s Lago Restaurant is an indulgent affair with cream-stuffed pastries, freshly sliced cured Italian meats and made-to-order eggs among the mouthwatering highlights.

The Look

  • Following a two-year refresh completed in 2021, Grand Hotel Victoria Concept & Spa’s grand neoclassical facade and belle epoque interiors were reimagined with contemporary furnishings from Italian designer Medea, and exterior furnishings by Talenti. In fact, nearly all elements found within the renovated Lake Como hotel were sourced from Italian craftspeople.
  • Accommodations are delightfully contemporary with light wood floors, statement wallpaper and a nature-inspired color palette of grays, browns and creams with pops of green or blue. Top-to-toe marble bathrooms come in a dark slate with atmospheric backlighting that makes getting ready a relaxing affair.
  • A new wing was added to the palatial property in an effort to expand the room offerings. The addition draws inspiration from the heritage hotel’s exteriors — mimicking the pale yellow exterior and signature terracotta roof — and is connected by a beautifully designed hallway that seamlessly blends the two buildings.
  • Lighting plays a starring role in Grand Hotel Victoria Concept & Spa’s overall aesthetic. Natural light floods public spaces such as Lago and the hotel’s lobby, while moody blue and red illuminations set the scene for various therapies at Erre Spa.
