Discover the Best Luxury SPA destinations in Milan and surroundings
In a city known for its style and decadence, Milan’s luxury spas redefine the meaning of both. Inside some of the city’s most exclusive 5 star hotels you will find tranquil oases with some of the best treatments, breathtaking pools and turkish baths.
Spa therapy has had a place in Italian culture since the Roman times, which explains why there’s ample opportunity in this “Bel Paese” (that means beautiful country) to pamper yourself from head-to-toe.
A moment to rejuvenate in a city as vibrant as Milan is necessary to make the most of its enviable selection of chic restaurants, fashion boutiques, unique museums and the world’s best furniture shops. And, when the city gets too hot and you need to escape, the Lombardy region has some of the finest spa days and wellness experiences.
Taking an Italian furniture shopping tour with Esperiri is an opportunity to explore the Italian dream in all of these aspects, which is why we’ve put together a list of the best luxury spa destinations in Milan and the lake spa locations surrounding the city…
Wellness Experience: the Top 10 Most Luxury Spas in Milan
Grand Spa – Palazzo Parigi
Described as an “exclusive oasis of relaxation”, inside Palazzo Parigi’s grand villa is a spacious spa that draws inspiration from all over the world. Located in the heart of Milan’s fashion district you’ll find seven therapy rooms variously styled as Moroccan, Indian and Swedish havens, a luxurious pool flanked by Moorish doors, a Finnish sauna, steam bath, icefall and a panoramic relaxing room.
Four Seasons Hotel
The Four Seasons SPA is a paragon of luxury in the centre of Milan’s Montenapoleone Fashion District that blends historic architectural details with contemporary Italian design. Designed by Patricia Urquiola, it is set in a renovated 15th-century convent awash with frescoes. The spa preserves the vaulted ceiling (dating from a later period, the 19th century), while adding to the facility seven treatment rooms, a swimming pool, a Turkish bath and a sauna. Immerse yourself in a ritual of pure relaxation surrounded by the refreshing scents of the Mediterranean Sea.
Mandarin Oriental Milan
Also located in the prestigious Montenapoleone area, the Mandarin Oriental has one of the best spas in the city, with interiors that incorporate the five key elements of feng shui – water, metal, wood, earth and fire. Relax in the spa’s six private treatment rooms (including two couple’s suites and a spacious VIP suite), an indoor swimming pool, state of the art fitness center, and a hair salon by celebrity stylist Massimo Serini.
Armani / SPA
The Armani Hotel Milano is situated in the city’s world-renowned fashion district known as the Quadrilatero della Moda. Inside is the Armani/Spa, which offers a level of sophistication you would expect from the Armani brand. Featuring marble, brass detailing and low lighting, sleek and luxurious interiors are designed to soothe guests. A highlight feature of the spa is its rooftop relaxation area, from where you can watch the city of Milan as you relax on furnishings designed by the Italian fashion house.
QC Terme Milano
Whirlpools, saunas, relaxation rooms and steam baths form a peaceful sanctuary in Porta Romana. Occupying a sprawling Art Nouveau-era tram depot, QC Terme is home to Milan’s most extensive facilities, which also include two outdoor pools surrounded by the 16th-century walls of the city. At the spas in Milan you will find water in all its forms: from the warmth of saunas and hammams to the bio-sauna located inside a disused tram outside and whirlpools of all kinds.
