Two days well spent at one of the best and most beautiful hotel destinations in northern Italy. The great location and spectacular rooftop bar make Hotel La Palma a must visit when spending time around the lakes up north.

Hotel La Palma is the home of one of the best rooftop bars in Italy and also one of the best rooftop infinity pools in this beautiful country. We spent two days here enjoying both the pool and bar as much as we could. Read our full review here (with focus on the rooftop):

ROOFTOP POOL

One of the main reasons we choose to stay at Hotel La Palma was because of the AMAZING rooftop pool. Located on the 8th floor with a fantastic view over the lake and surrounding mountains. The pool also have two separate jacuzzi sections. Perfect for a luxurious relaxation moment. Up here you’ll also fins several sun loungers. Both day beds and regular sun loungers. A tip is to get up early in the morning to secure one of the best beds.

The swimming pool is only available for the hotel guests. So, make sure to book your stay here if you want a “one of a kind” experience. You’ll also get some great photo opportunities and Insta-friendly pics up here. If this wasn’t enough, there is also a second swimming pool available at the hotel. Located by the beach of Lage Maggiore just by the water.

ROOFTOP SKY BAR

Sky Bar at Hotel La Palma is one of the best rooftop bars in Italy. The view from here is something special. Perched on the 8th floor just by the Lage Maggiore makes this one of the most romantic and beautiful places in this part of Italy. We let the pictures speak for themselves.

Sky Bar is very famous for its extensive drink menu. There’s something for everybody here. Everything from delicious signature cocktails to classics like GT and Negroni. Also a large selection of wines is available. Here’s a link to the drink and food menu.

Every night from 7:00 PM there’s an Aperitivo on the rooftop. A perfect way to start your evening before dinner. The dinner menu consists in classic bites like Club Sandwich, burgers, salads and charcutier. Not so classic Italian, but still good.

HOTEL

Hotel La Palma is a 4-star hotel, but it feels like a 5-star if you ask us. All the way from the lobby, through the rooms and up to the rooftop. Service was also spot on during our whole visit.

The breakfast buffe is served on the ground floor in the big restaurant. On the sunny days you can also enjoy eating in the garden. The same area is the home of the hotel restaurant. A perfect place to have dinner at. A classic Italian menu is available for the hungry ones.

The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Extra plus for the big balcony and super luxurious bathroom. You’ll feel right at home from the first second.
