Glam retreat with Michelin-starred Med cuisine, dramatic artworks and a pool overlooking the Bay of Naples
With a prime spot on the glamorous island of Capri, this gleaming white see-and-be-seen sleep is chandelier-studded and dotted with modern artworks commissioned by the hands-on second-generation owner, Tonino Cacace. The grand columns, vaulted ceilings and shiny buttermilk floor tiles are pure Italian indulgence, and the secluded pool overlooks the isle of Ischia and the Bay of Naples. Since opening in the 1960s, the property has attracted a string of prestigious patrons from the worlds of fashion and film.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms are stylishly understated, decked out in the hotel's signature whites and creams. Expect to find canopy beds and fresh orchids, Samsung tablets and free WiFi. Superior (290 square feet) and Deluxe (377 square feet) rooms offer vivid blue sea views from private balconies or patios. Marble bathrooms and robes and slippers come standard, as do posh Capritouch toiletries.
The hotel has a trio of Michelin stars. The formal l'Olivo, helmed by Ischia-born chef Andrea Migliaccio, is Capri's only restaurant with two Michelin stars, and Il Riccio (at the hotel's beach club) has been awarded one for its Mediterranean cuisine and impressive fish counter. You can also dine on the candlelit deck, which overlooks the sea, at the laid-back eatery Ragù Bistro. Sip a post-dinner cocktail at the Bar degli Artisti, named for the creators of the many artworks that grace the property. The award-winning spa by Capri Beauty Farm offers special leg treatments and anti-aging facials. The small outdoor pool has an unusual glass wall to one side and is surrounded by lounge chairs and cabanas so the beautiful people can bathe in the sun.
In the Area
Don’t fret too much about the number of tourists; they'll be gone by late afternoon. Take the 15-minute chairlift ride from Piazza della Vittoria to Mount Solaro for stunning views from nearly 2,000 feet up. A 10-minute (uphill) stroll will take you to one of the island's best pizza joints, Aumm Aumm, or, if it's too hot, stay close to home and wander around the mainly pedestrianized alleyways near the hotel and stop for a beer or gelato in the piazza. Take a boat trip around the Faraglioni rocks, giant formations that rise from the deep blue-green water, then to the famous Blue Grotto and the windswept rocky promontory near the western tip of the island, where you can swim, away from the hordes. On returning, dine at one of Capri’s most feted and romantic restaurants, Da Paolino, where tables are set beneath a grove of lemon trees strung with lanterns.
