The monastery called to us, a faint whisper we simply had to follow. And so here we are, looking for kindred spirits who want to bring ARX VIVENDI to life and unleash its full potential. Staff who will give their heart and soul for our guests’ wellbeing, day in, day out; and partners whose products seem to have been made for our way of living. We want to turn this place into something special – do you want to answer your calling?

No, you are not dreaming: someone really has opened a brand-new bar in a historical monastery. With a slogan such as ‘Nunc est bibendum’ – let us drink – you can rest assured herbal teas and water will not be the only drinks you serve! And you know what is even better? You have a say over how to run the bar, and implement any creative idea you may have. As the monastery’s bartender and mixologist, you can use the herbs from our garden to make syrups, develop the monastery’s tonic water, and create your own zany alternative to a Spritz Aperol! We are not afraid to go against the grain – so feel free to mix up a Dirty Martini, Corpse Reviver, or a Bloody Mary even within these once sacred halls. We cannot wait to see what you bring to the bar! Full-time / 2.30 – 9.30 pm / Bar for hotel guests only /

You are out and about in town, and someone asks you if you are new, as they have never seen you. ‘Why yes, I am the new Head Housekeeper at Arx Vivendi.’ Now, does that not have a nice ring to it? We are looking for a Head Housekeeper to manage the housekeeping team at the new monastery. We all know that ‘cleanliness is next to godliness’ and we still stand by this timeless adage: we want all rooms to be spick and span, as clean as can be – and you would oversee this sacred mission. The Monastero boasts 40 rooms and suites in total, common areas, and a 500 sqm SPA. Do you hear the calling? We are looking forward to hearing from you! Full-time / Accommodation included

Exploring Monastero Arx Vivendi and its rooms is quite the experience: tall ceilings, historical walls, new furniture. These spaces need people who value beauty and cleanliness above everything else. People whose everyday mission is to preserve these rooms. Get in touch now to become part of the housekeeping team at the monastery. Full-time or part-time

The doors of this monastery are always open to amazing neighbours and partners who want to collaborate with us here at ARX VIVENDI. Services, products – you name it. Even product samplings are more than welcome. Send us an email at

Location, location, location. Arco is a portal between mountains and palm trees swaying to the lake’s breeze, just a stone’s throw from Lake Garda. Set on the southernmost point of Trentino-Alto Adige, its mild microclimate has made Arco into an outstanding health resort – but the city is more than just SPAs and wellbeing. The city is steeped in history boasting castle ruins, charming Austrian architecture, and unmistakable Italian dolce vita. What a sight to behold.

ARX VIVENDI is set in the very centre of Arco on Lake Garda and will open in spring 2021. What we – that means us, Steffi and Manuel – are looking for is staff as well as passionate, friendly people who want to embark with us on this exciting journey.

The monastery of the Sisters, Servants of Mary was built in the 17th century – and has now been given a new lease of life. The abandoned southern wing, deserted in the 50s, will open its doors in Spring 2021 to reveal a brand-new hotel and its 40 rooms and suites. The monastery garden was, and still is, a retreat – a balm for body and soul, submerged in lush vegetation and featuring a trailblazing SPA concept – hammam included, of course.

Hosts Steffi and Manuel are looking for kindred spirits who will bring ARX VIVENDI to life.
