A salmon-pink palace perched high on a cliffside overlooking the famous Faraglioni rocks, Hotel Punta Tragara is a destination in itself. Originally conceived by Le Corbusier, the design is both classic and avant-garde, and the décor walks a line between traditional European grandeur and cutting edge (a painting at the foot of the grand staircase, for instance, depicts model Jessica Stam). The public spaces make the most of the dreamy setting: The pool and La Pergola terrace, in particular, offer stunning views over the Bay of Naples and Mount Salaro, the island’s highest point. Bring your stamina: There are plenty of beautiful walking trails nearby, but the way back is steep. You’ll feel like you’ve earned that sunset aperitif.
In the Area
From the hotel, walk down pine-shaded paths to the famous Fontelina Beach, where you can arrange to be picked up by boat captain Gianni for an unforgettable circumnavigation of the island. Have him take you around the Faraglioni rocks, giant formations that rise like monoliths from the deep blue-green water, then to the famous Blue Grotto and the windswept rocky promontory towards the western tip of the island, where you can bathe away from the hordes. On return, 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.
How to Get There
The Punta Tragara offers very good accomodation in a fabulous location with extremely professional and friendly staff
Staying here is like staying at a close friends place
Love the walk to and back from Capri centre, especially at night
Risotto pescatora I could only taste the butter (in the country of olive oil) . We excpeted better quality for the price we paid. Capri is expensive but at Le Monzu it's abusive!
Pasta with lobster was ok but bland.
Everything about this place is good..... 10 minutes walk from the main square for a quiet meal with untouchable view. The choice of food is excellent as is the explanation of where the produce comes from. Combine it all with a recommendation of local wine produced on the island. Fantastic. 5*****
This is a 1st class hotel in Capri. The staff is absolutely incredible. The Gin Bar at the pool is staffed by the most amazing bartenders I have ever seen. The rooms are beautiful with great views. Very easy to arrange help to and from hotel and ferry with the aid of the front desk staff. The service at this hotel really stands. out. Love being a little bit away from the crowds in Capri. Great view of the Faraglioni Rocks. Restaurant is wonderful. I would not stay anywhere else in Capri!
For years we have gone to Capri and stayed at one of the best known hotels. Last year we could not get in and defaulted to Punta Tragara......what a great move on our part. We did not default, we upgraded significantly. It is now one of our favorite hotels in the world. Great location, staff and accommodations. Cant wait to return.
