Near the small fishing village of Savelletri di Fasano, on Puglia’s eastern coast, the Moorish-style Borgo Egnazia stands out against the ancient landscape, with a chameleonic appeal thanks to its stunning spa, adjacent 18-hole golf course, clubs for kids and teens, and the promise of romance and relaxation on the Ibiza-style daybeds and loungers around the pools. Puglia native Pino Brescia is responsible for the cream and tufa stone interiors, which feel equal parts Moorish palace, Roman spa and Fred Flintstone’s cave. The rooms in the main building, known as La Corte, are right for couples, with the signature chalky stone look, plus oatmeal accents in the pillows and throws. All the expected modern amenities are present (minibar, LCD TV, WiFi), along with private balconies overlooking the Adriatic or the San Domenico Golf Course. The big bathrooms have a knock-your-head-off shower and separate deep tub, plus all-Italian products by the hotel’s own brand. The made-in-Italy theme is important here, and it’s carried through in the destination spa, which is all flickering candles, thermal pools and endless massage combos, and the restaurant, Due Camini, which serves regional dishes on a wraparound terrace. The enormous tiered pools are democratically divided into a splashing kid zone and a cocktails before noon zone.
In the Area
Adjacent to Borgo Egnazia is the 18-hole San Domenico Golf Course, considered one of the finest in Italy. Hotel guests receive a discount, so book a lesson in advance and admire the views of the Adriatic from every hole. Puglia is known as the “California of Italy” thanks to its signature bold cuisine, and guests can master some traditional recipes in a half-day cooking class with the resort’s executive chef. Don’t leave Puglia without exploring some of its classic whitewashed villages and seeing its famous Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Idyllic Alberobello is the place to see clusters of Puglia’s famed trulli houses.
How to Get There
Beautiful hotel, everything styled from stone. Just lovely to walk around. Super deluxe bedroom with views over the golf course and sea. Amazing bathroom, Charming friendly staff, who were eager to help. Options from massive villas to double rooms. Fun bikes rides, lunch near the beach, amazing olive trees, great weather. I could go on and on. Only slight drawback was the food which was hit and miss, but the gourmet restaurant has now re-opened with a fantastic new kitchen you must see. Yes, not cheap but worth it.
We spent five days at the Borgo and it was amazing. The apartments are wonderfully decorated and the village like resort is beautiful. The swimming pools are incredible and the vibe is just so relaxing. Staff are very friendly and they will go out of their way to make sure that you have a pleasant stay. The beach club is beautiful even if you have to take a shuttle to get to it it is only a 3 minutes ride in cart. I would return any time.
Absolutely loved it. Amazing hotel, it is quite big but the staff does an amazing job to make it a personal experience. Fantastic place to fully relax, the apartments are all beautifully decorated. The spa is gorgeous, treatments are professional and fantastic. Overall breakfast and the other restaurants serve great fresh local food.
Just came back from 5 days.
+ Beautiful hotel. Very attentive staff-especially Viviana who helped arrange dinner reservations, tips for local exploring etc. Breakfast great.
- Expensive food especially as average quality. Only two restaurants open in low season and one mainly served pizza! Not personal enough for the money. Charge 25 Euros for 2 bicycles to explore the hotel grounds for half day! Housekeeping had no regard for guests- came when it suited them.
There are MANY better places to visit.
I strongly advise golfers not use this hotel ...they are not organize to support golfers
Moreover everything end at 6 pm ..... swimming pool , bike rental .... if you play during the day probably you want use services in the evening !!!
The appearance is nice and service look very gentle but totally ineffective
