Federico Bella of Hilton Lake Como Shares His Top 5 Tips to Achieve a Healthy Head-to-Toe Como Glow
The luxurious Spa and Health Club is fully embracing its silk production origins with the launch of a brand new treatment menu.
The award-winning spa at Hilton Lake Como, which used to be a silk-manufacturing factory, has just launched the new menu featuring the Ultimate Silk Bliss Facial, the silk touch massage and a face to toe body treatment. Spa manager Frederico Bella explains the benefits of silk in achieving the ultimate "glow" and gives his tips on making the most of the beautiful natural surroundings and the superb expertly designed treatments on offer.
1) Feel The Nature
Nature is known for its healing powers. A walk in nature is not only a fun way to spend time in a carefree way but an essential component of a healthy lifestyle. Before enjoying moments of relaxation at Eforea spa (the wellness centre of the hotel Hilton Lake Como), immerse yourself in the nature of Como. From our property, there are two pedestrian walks that not only offer breath-taking views of the lake but also allow you to discover hidden corners and gems. The shores of the lake, the trees, the colourful flowers are all-natural images that have the power to amaze you, give you unique emotions, make you feel good, recharge your batteries and above all, are a powerful natural medicine for body, mind and soul.
2) The Power Of The 60-Minute Silk Touch Massage
Como city is known throughout the world for its skills in the art of weaving. To honour Como’s heritage and to benefit from the silk, we have created a special massage using silk fabrics. The Silk Touch Massage is a vigorous workout for the body, perfect for alleviating high-stress levels. Tailored entirely to each client’s needs, it leaves one feeling grounded and focused. Skin is prepped to release toxins and the flowing massage works deeper and deeper into areas of tension, encouraging optimum circulation. As effective as an hour’s stretching, but so much more nurturing.
3) The Power Of Water
After an invigorating Silk Touch massage, all that remains is to enjoy an hour of total relaxation in the spa. The benefits of hydromassage are almost a must in a spa treatment because it is one of the most well-known and popular treatments for relaxing the mind and body and it has many virtues.
4) Immerse Yourself In Lake Como Scent
When walking along the shores of the lake, one of the senses most affected (apart from sight) is the sense of smell. After careful research into the natural essence of the Lake, experts have created “Acqua del Lago”, a particular and unique ambient fragrance, and two exclusive scents for the body. Natural scents are simply perfumes composed only of natural aromatic ingredients extracted directly from flora and fauna. They are suitable for all skin types, hypoallergenic and eco-friendly, as no harmful or chemical substances are used in the preparation process.
5) The Power Of Lights
Finally, a very important tip to achieve a healthy Como glow from head to toe is the light. One of the most important personalities who was born and lived in Como is Alessandro Volta, the inventor of the electric battery and Voltaic pile in 1799. We still maintain a strong link with lights, indeed natural lights accompany our guests through their stay. When we think of a spa we imagine rooms with soft, almost dark lighting. Whereas the first thing you will notice is that our spa features natural light, the precise and minimal furniture, and the feeling of freshness and calm that the sun reflects on the blue Brazilian lapis lazuli wall.
