First Green Globe certified spa resort in Southern Europe


LOS ANGELES, California – Ms. Liliana Leali, President of Lefay Resorts said: “Lefay Resort & Spa has developed its own spa concept using the principles of classical Chinese medicine and has embraced the idea that wellness incorporates being sensitive to the environment – something that is demonstrated throughout every detail of the design and infrastructure of the resort.

“Bio-architecture, which includes the use of natural materials and utilization of alternative and renewable energy sources are just some of the measures that have been implemented by Lefay to minimize the impact on the environment.”

Lefay Resort & Spa on Lake Garda, Gargnano, Italy, has been awarded the internationally-recognized Green Globe certification and is the first Green Globe certificated spa resort in Southern Europe.

Mr. Guido Bauer, Green Globe Certification CEO said: “Lefay is our first spa resort to be certified in southern Europe and represents a truly holistic approach to intrinsic design and daily function of a luxury wellness experience.

“Lefay’s approach to energy and water usage is exemplary with the purchase of power from renewable sources and the collection and use of rain water throughout the resort. These are two fundamentals that all spas need to consider as they work to neutralize their environmental impact.”

Together with certification by Green Globe, Lefay has been accredited in 2009 for its “design and management of architectural solutions for innovative and eco-compatible structures” under ISO 14001 environmental certification. Lefay has also won the prestigious Premio all’Innovazione Amica dell’Ambiente Award for environmentally-friendly innovation.


Lefay Resort & SPA Lago di Garda has been designed and created with a view to environmental sustainability with implementation of the latest generation technologies and the use of renewable alternative energies on the basis of ISO 14001 environmental certification and ISO 9001 quality certificate. Lefay Resorts is owner of RECS certificates, which guarantee that all the purchased electric energy is produced by the “A2A Group” only through renewable energy sources.
