New life behind old monastery walls
Lago di Garda - deep blue water surrounded by mighty mountains, lined with cypresses and picturesque villages. A destination of longing that fascinates. For those who love this unique, lively flair, but also seclusion and modern comfort, there is now a spectacular address: the Hotel Monastero Arx Vivendi. Near the charming little town of Arcos, Stefanie Happacher and her husband Manuel Mutschlechner, in collaboration with the renowned architecture and design studio noa*, created a hideaway from a former monastery that is second to none. Surrounded by a seven-metre-high wall and embedded in an enchanting monastery garden, the modern-luxurious boutique hotel with its beautiful cross vaults is spread over three levels. Individual rooms and suites, a reception, lobby, kitchen, breakfast room and bar have been created from barren monastery cells. The day begins with a rich Arx Vivendi breakfast. Wellness lovers enjoy the newly designed spa area "Salus per Aquam", the sun terrace, the pool. In addition, yoga and wellness retreats are offered.
Forty individually designed rooms and suites have been created from former convent cells once occupied by the nuns of the "Servants of Mary". All rooms follow a strict design, also in the choice of materials: hand-planed oak floors in the sleeping area, tiles with a natural effect in the bathroom, light old wooden doors. Black was chosen throughout for the interior, as a contrast to the grey tones of the walls. Everything is custom-made, even the beds with a metal canopy and black oak inserts. The room heights are imposing, in some cases up to five metres. Some rooms have a loggia, others a private sauna or a garden section. They have a size of 24-36 square metres. The Suite Hortus (70 square metres) is designed for up to four people. It is equipped with all the must-haves, private sauna, freestanding bathtub, king-size bed and individual design elements. This flat also includes a 280 square metre garden with seating and sun loungers.
Plenty of natural light streams in through the skylight offering an unencumbered view of the blue sky and scudding clouds. The 22-26 sqm LUX rooms feature all creature comforts, a king-sized bed, and individual design elements.
The CELLA rooms are obtained by joining two former monastic cells. Their vestiges still shine through the 24-27 spm rooms which boast more than 4-m tall ceilings. The CELLA rooms feature all creature comforts, a king-sized bed, and individual design elements.
Let there be light. These airy 28-30 sqm rooms are bathed in sunlight, which streams in through the skylight offering an unencumbered view of the blue sky and scudding clouds. The LUX SPATIOSA rooms feature all creature comforts, a king-sized bed, and individual design elements.
