The Wellness Centre
A proper wellness holiday in the mountains can't be possible without a wellness centre that provides services and quality treatments.
For adults only, the wellness centre of the Hotel Sporting Livigno has a panoramic relaxation area with herbal tea service, sauna, Turkish bath, room with a wall of salt, ice fountain and emotional showers.
Here you also have the possibility to book individual treatments or couple massages and to participate in exclusive events.
The Wellness Centre is open daily from 3.00 PM to 8.00 PM with the opportunity to book the spa for your exclusive use in the morning and from 8.30 PM onwards for a romantic night of sweet relaxation.
The food is fine dining and yet substantial, as there are anti pasta, starters, main and then gorgeous desserts. All courses have choices so there will be something on the menu to please everyone. The dining room also has a self-service food area with salads, kids menu and fresh vegetables and fruit. Breakfasts are superb too, with a large buffet selection and cooked to order egg options.
I must comment on the staff who were fantastic, friendly and very professional. They looked after myself and two boys so well and became friends, greeting us by name.
We are going back next year and hopefully for many more years to come.
So I say Ciao and Graze, Guido, Danielle, Paulo, Vincenzo and all the staff
