The Aqualux is a luxury hotel and spa housed in a glassy and super modern building on the shores of Lake Garda. The 113-room hotel opened in 2012, and it aims to please: the grounds are beautifully landscaped, the free breakfast is excellent -- it even includes make-your-own juices -- and the on-site spa is superb. Even the most inexpensive rooms at the Aqualux have space to move around in, and all rooms include balconies. For a hotel of this caliber, Wi-Fi should be, but isn't free. The outdoor garden and numerous pools provide plenty of distraction. The hotel's minimalist aesthetic might not be for everyone, especially those who prefer a more rustic Mediterranean vacation. Amenities at the Aqualux are comparable to those of the nearby Hotel Caesius Thermae SPA, which also has stunning grounds, but is more traditional in design.
