CastaDiva Resort & Spa

By Theodora Halstead

Set in a picturesque 6.5-acre lakefront botanic garden, the former home of soprano Giuditta Pasta (19th-century composer Vincenzo Bellini’s muse) holds a rich operatic history — the name itself, CastaDiva, comes from Bellini’s Opera Norma. The resort won ‘Most Romantic Retreat’ in the Small Luxury Hotel awards in 2017 and it’s easy to see why. The boutique hotel is set in the quaint town of Blevio and has spectacular views over Lake Como, particularly from the ‘floating’ outdoor pool, which, come nightfall, turns into a stage for an illuminated water display with an operatic soundtrack. Be sure to visit the spa — designed by Paolo Bodega, it’s the largest spa on Lake Como.
