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
Punta Tragara is on the edge of the island. Great views, great service, out of the bustle of the island,
Gym is small but breakfast buffet is big! Front desk was very helpful with reservations, and travel information,
The location of this hotel is absolutely perfect for taking in Capri - set apart from the hustle and bustle of the main shopping area, but easily within walking distance of it. The views both from the hotel, and along the streets to get there are unbelievable. In fact, strolling those little streets and admiring the doors/gardens along the way was one of our favorite parts of the trip. We might have missed out on this if we stayed elsewhere. The room was private & much bigger than we expected, with a wrap around balcony overlooking the cliffs. Service was excellent. Only downside I can think of is that we found the hotel bar to be quite expensive.
From it's location, to it's views, to the pool, to the rooms, Punta Tragara is a truly incredible hotel.
It's very peaceful but with atmosphere and a buzz and the staff are second to none - especially Anna at concierge.
The surrounding area is quiet but it's within walking distance to the busy streets of Capris with lots of shops and restaurants.
The hotels restaurant, Mamma is a 15 minute walk away and is a must visit. The food, service and views are incredible.
Definitely put Punta Tragara on your bucket list!
