Last Friday, very early in the morning, we hopped into our cars and headed south to beautiful Lido di Jesolo (basically only a 2 1/2 hours drive from Carinthia). Well, I thought you would like to know what we were up to the whole weekend & how our beautiful accommodation looked like. So here is a little travel review for you guys.
The Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Jesolo is the newest addition to the Falkensteiner Group and has just opened its doors only a few weeks ago. So we basically were one of the first guests to enjoy this exquisite house.
I already knew from pictures that the design of this hotel is absolutely going to my kind of style. I only say – ALL WHITE EVERYTHING ! You guys know, I’m a little addicted to white architectural designn.
When you think of Jesolo and all other towns located on the Italian Adriatic Coast, you might think of those typical hotels for this area. But I can tell you, Jesolo has finally arrived in the 21st century!
You can now enjoy a whole new side at one of the most iconic locations on Italy’s Adriatic coast. The 5-star Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Jesolo, is designed to be an enchanting homage to the glorious Italian seaside resorts of the past, bringing the glamour and flair of Miami to the Adriatic. No less a figure than the renowned Richard Meier is responsible for the building – very clear & modern lines, all kept in white build the outside which is typical for Meier. Star architect Matteo Thun was is charge of the interior design and perfectly managed to combine maritime elements and the Adriatic charm with modern Miami vibes. Both really did a brilliant job!
The Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Jesolo features 126 accommodations with 101 double rooms, 7 suites and 18 apartments. In addition, a Nespresso Coffee machine is available in all rooms. Our room for the weekend was a suite apartment, with its own kitchenette, a living area, a walk in closet, a big private terrace & sea view. This extra large room combined unique design and exquisite interiors inspired by Miami colorful Art Deco style. You truly feel at home from the moment you arrive here. This room is also perfect for families with a small child, as you always have the opportunity to cook tea or prepare a quick meal for the little one in the fully equipped kitchenette.
On Friday and Saturday we enjoyed super relaxing beach days and reloaded our batteries at the beach club with private access to the beach. We were lucky enough to get beach chairs in the first row and enjoyed a frontrow-view at the sea. The Beach club is located directly in front of the hotel and is equipped with special sun beds, umbrellas and outdoor canopy beds. A perfect place to relax.
The modern & welcoming outdoor pool area offers a heated outdoor pool & jacuzzi.
My tipp: if you want to spent the day at the pool you have to be very quick and try to reserve your sun bed very early in the morning.
The breakfast is arranged in a generous and healthy buffet with many different kinds of bread (even a great selection of gluten free alternatives), pastries, fruits, vegetables, cereals and everything else a great breakfast needs and your heart breakfast loving heart desires.
The hotel also offers two bars, the MIAMI Bar inside and the POOL Bar outside.Which are both perfect to enjoy an Aperol Spritz and enjoy the evening or to get a refreshment during the day.
The Cigar Lounge, located in the first floor, is dedicated to relaxing moments in combination with wines from their special wine cellar and spirits.
In the evenings we enjoyed a 4 course Alpe Adria Menu on the terrace accompanied by great wine & tasty Spritz creations.
SPORT & ACQUAPURA SPA
As I always try to never skip my training and also try to stay in shape during my holidays, where I might indulge myself sometimes a little bit too much, (just saying – cheese buffet ;) ) I also squeezed in workouts at the perfectly equipped gym and the beach (more coming soon in my next sporty outfit postings).
On Sunday the weather changed in the morning and it was raining cats and dogs all day long, we decided to spent the whole day at ACQUAPURA SPA. The Acquapura SPA covers an area of 1.500 m², featuring indoor and heated outdoor pools, wonderfully design relaxing areas, jacuzzi, solarium, different types of saunas and different kind of beauty treatments and massages. The perfect place to relax on rainy days. The Acquapura Spa definitely makes the Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Jesolo even more special, as this kind of Spa experience is very unique on the Italian Adriatic Coast.
We enjoyed a really perfect weekend trip in this one of a kind Falkensteiner Hotel in Jesolo.
*** Thanks to Falkensteiner Hotels & Residences for the wonderful stay! We’ll come back for sure!
