Hotel description

The Color Style & Design Hotel, in the picturesque village of Bardolino, is the only designer hotel on Lake Garda and was nominated in 2008 for the prestigious Conde Nast Johansens award for design and innovation. The rooms and suites of the 4-star hotel are decorated according to the principles of Chromotherapy: warm orange and bright red are invigorating, while blue calms. This original concept is complemented by matching color menus in the Mediterranean restaurant "Wine and Dine", which covers various dining rooms and terraces. Multiple pools in the 6,000-acre palm and oleander gardens emphasize the feel-good character.
Romantic hotel: candle-lit dinner or wedding reception
The Color offers wedding receptions and packages for honeymoons or romantic anniversaries. The guest can choose between different locations for receptions. There’s also the "Vista" terrace with scenic views of the sunsets over Lake Garda, the "Wine and Dine" restaurant and several bars and lounges. On request, the hotel organises food: "Buffet and champagne" as well as finger food at one of three lounges or even a full dinner buffet with band. The hotel team also offers a limousine service.
Family hotel: Child-friendly service and adventure parks close by
The garden offers children plenty of space to play. Some areas of the pools are child friendly. Ping-pong equipment and bicycles can be borrowed free of charge and offer fun for the whole family. The location of the hotel is ideal for families: the amusement park Gardaland is just 11 km away, and water slides are just 7 km away, at the Canevaworld resort. In the restaurant, children are very welcome, with special menus and children’s chairs for the little ones.
Spa Hotel: Spacious pool landscape and light meal
The design of the rooms according to the principles of Chromotherapy has a positive effect on well-being. A 6,000 m² garden with lush tropical vegetation invites guests to go for a stroll, and four different swimming pools are ideal for swimming and relaxing. Fountains made of wood, stone or rock can be found, as well as fragrant oleanders and olive trees. Relaxing massages can be booked extra. 30°C warm water bubbles up in the hydro-massage pool Samsara.
Food & drink: Breakfast, light regional cuisine
The breakfast buffet is served either on the terrace or in your room. The guest has a choice of eggs, ham, local cheese, yogurt, fresh fruit, and many types of bread. Three bars are open from 11 am to midnight daily and serve drinks as well as light snacks. Dinner at the restaurant "Wine and Dine" can be selected according to colour. Red stands for a romantic dinner for two, for example. The dishes are light and local and can consist of, for example, fresh fish, gnocchi and crunchy vegetables. Excellent wines from the region are presented by trained sommeliers. For those who prefer the "finger food" option, you can enjoy small delicacies in one of the cosy lounges in an informal atmosphere. For self- catering, there is a supermarket 50m away. In Bardolino (15 minutes walk), there are a number of typical restaurants and bars.
Sport & leisure: Large swimming pool, tennis and golf
The hotel offer everything ranging from table tennis and free bike rental for excursions, to a fitness centre with modern equipment. Tennis courts are 2km away and there are seven 18-hole golf courses around Lake Garda. The Color has agreements for discounts on green fees with five of those, and offers special offers for golfers. Lake Garda is located just 150m from the hotel. Sailing boats and surfboards can be rented right on the beach. The pool area, with a size of 1,000 m², is perfect for swimming and relaxing, and walking through the sprawling garden landscape with artistic fountains and natural rock is a great experience at any time of day. Recommended are trips to Verona, which is 30km away. The centre of Bardolino offers small bars and two nightclubs (walking time approx. 15 minutes).
Location: Ideal location on Lake Garda and close to cultural highlights
The Color is surrounded by spacious gardens with Palm trees, oleanders and olive trees, 1.5 km from Bardolino, and is separated from Lake Garda by the coastal road. The view is either of the pool area or onto the courtyard. The upper floors sometimes offer lake views. The Monte Baldo mountain range offers an impressive panorama to the northeast. Verona is half an hour by car, with many sights and shopping opportunities.
