Hilton Lake Como is delighted to unwrap a selection of spoiling new seasonal offerings for Christmas and New Year 2022/23. From festive foodie experiences and sparkling new spa packages, to excursions to nearby Como and Cernobbio for Italian-style celebrations, there’s a Christmas wish waiting to be granted for all this year at Hilton’s lakeside getaway.

The festive period is one of the most incredible times of the year to experience Lake Como, as the region is aglow with beautiful lights and décor, bustling markets, special events and celebrations. At Hilton Lake Como, which enjoys one of the most privileged spots on the lake, a spoiling heated infinity pool and jacuzzi on the sixth floor is open year-round, offering guests unparalleled views across the lake as the atmospheric steam rises and Christmas lights twinkle all around them.

The new experiences for Christmas and New Year 2022/23 include:

Seasonal Spa Menu

Hilton Lake Como’s world-class team of eforea Spa ‘elves’ will be on hand to get guests Christmas party-ready with a selection of pampering festive treatments as part of the new ‘Making Moments Escape’ package. Those staying for 1-3 nights across all room types will receive complimentary access to the state-of-the-art spa throughout their stay, as well as 20% off all treatments and Comfort Zone skincare products. Festive treatments on offer include:

‘Santa’s Coal’ Hot Stone Massage

Just the thing for soothing tired muscles and warming up after a chilly December’s day on the lake, this hot stone massage incorporates traditional Balinese hot stones. Working the soothing stones deep into the muscles in combination with eForea’s Tranquillity Oil, the therapist will relieve all tension in the body leaving the client sparkling with vitality and intensely hydrated skin.

Merry & Bright Ultra Glow Peel

Incorporating a brightening, tone-correcting peel with hydramemory to treat dullness, hyperpigmentation and melasma, this treatment will leave clients with an immediate radiance and a more even, glowing complexion – ensuring they enter the New Year looking brighter, younger and healthier than ever before!

Nearby Natale Celebrations and Excursions

Hilton Lake Como is perfectly placed for guests wishing to get a taste of a true Italian-style Christmas, being equidistant between the towns of Cernobbio and Como, both of which offer a range of spectacular seasonal celebrations!

In Cernobbio, just a 20-minute stroll from the hotel, guests can visit the traditional Città dei Balocci, a winter wonderland held inside the famous Villa Erba Park. There, the whole family can marvel in wonder at an interactive Christmas light and sound trail, an al-fresco ice rink, a Christmas Circus, toy train and Santa sleigh rides and handicraft markets.

Also just a 20-minute walk or 10-minute bike ride away, the Lake’s capital city, Como, will host the brand new Natale a Como Christmas festival. Beginning in late November through to the 8th January, the festival includes a Como Christmas Village, where one can shop for traditional crafts from the region, an ice rink, Italian carol singing, children’s entertainment including puppet shows and Christmas crafting, ballet and theatrical performances and much more.

Festive Feasting 

All season long at Hilton Lake Como, guests will be able to enjoy iconic aperitivos, all-day-dining and live music at Terrazza 241 bar, where the party never stops. Next door at Satin restaurant, a variety of traditional Italian dishes eaten around the festive season await, including Risotto alla Milanese with veal shank, Ravioli with Porcini and Lobster Spaghettoni. At Taffeta bar, kids will delight in the opportunity to sip a chocolately ‘Eat Your Drink’ alcohol-free cocktail while parents enjoy a classic Negroni and Aperol Spritz or two!

A very special New Year’s Eve celebration will take place at Satin restaurant, with a midnight countdown and toast taking place by the hotel’s rooftop pool – arguably the best vantage point on the lake for watching fireworks dance above and reflect upon the water. Featuring live music and an indulgent menu incorporating sumptuous dishes such as Oysters, Foie Gras Praline and Beef Fillet, at midnight, as per Italian tradition, guests will be served panettone with mascarpone cream – ensuring they have the sweetest of starts to 2023!

Formerly a silk factory, Hilton Lake Como is now a new generation hotel with spectacular scenery, traditional charm, and jaw-dropping 360-degree views of the lake from its rooftop pool. There are 170 spacious rooms and suites to choose from, including Family Deluxe King Rooms, which sleep up to 4 and perfectly cater to family travellers alongside new interconnecting rooms, a pampering spa and a popular rooftop cocktail bar and restaurant.
