Garden & Villas Resort
What We Love
- Soaking in the outdoor thermal pool
- Peace and quiet; the resort is set apart from other hotels on the island
- The excellent restaurant serves dishes made from ingredients grown in its own vegetable garden
What To Know
- If you're looking for an active bar scene, this isn't the hotel for you
- The resort is spread across different levels, and it's a fairly long walk down to the beach, so it isn't ideal for those with mobility issues
- Free WiFi is available only in the public areas
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
On the volcanic island of Ischia in the Bay of Naples, the Garden & Villas Resort is a sleepy retreat set in two acres of palm and lemon tree–studded grounds. Low-rise whitewashed villas dot the resort and surround an impressive pool fed by the island’s thermal waters. Natural materials, including local stone and wood beams, feature throughout. The guestooms are housed in detached villas, and all have balconies or terraces overlooking the garden or the sea. They’re bright and breezy, with marble floor tiles and pastel shades. The bathrooms are decked out with colorful (if a little old-fashioned) marble floor and wall tiles. Il Corbezzolo restaurant serves dishes made with ingredients grown in the hotel’s own vegetable and herb gardens, and the delightful breakfast spread includes bread baked in a wood-fired oven. Spend your days hopping from the outdoor thermal pool to the indoor wellness center, or strolling down to the beach on scenic San Montano Bay.
In the Area
If soaking in the resort’s thermal waters isn’t enough, Ischia has plenty of other natural hot springs. The nearby Negombo Thermal Park has a series of healing pools cut into the mountainside, plus a hammam and a private beach. A short drive away, Giardino Poseidon Terme is a complex of 20 thermal pools of various temperatures set on different levels or cut into caves. For shopping, the picturesque village of Sant’Angelo is home to small shops and luxe boutiques. Or charter a boat or take the ferry to neighboring Capri.
How to Get There
Everything about this hotel was exceptional. The staff, the accommodation, the food. And the gardens are a delight.. The holiday couldn't have been more relaxing. The hotel's courtesy transport is so convenient. I would recommend Forio; Lacco Ameno and the beautiful Giardini La Mortella if you ever feel like venturing out of the sanctuary of this hotel.
We spent a week with our family on the beautiful island of Ischia and booked the Garden & Villas Resort. We were positively surprised about the size of the rooms and the terrace. The resort is fantastic, surrounded by greenery and beautiful plants. The pool invites you to cool down. The spa area is small but nice, as is the fitness room. The breakfast buffet leaves nothing to be desired and the selection of breads, sweets and salted foods is fantastic. Very recommendable, the service staff is very courteous and authentic. A great experience, thank you very much.
I was very lucky to spend a fabulous week at Garden & Villas with my mum and daughter and can't say enough about the magic of this place. Beautiful and kind people, peaceful, astonishing surroundings and service at the very TOP. Thank you all for the amazing experience, looking forward to be back.
