Capri Palace and Spa
It’s no exaggeration to say that Capri Palace is among the most unique luxury Italian hotels found anywhere across the country. This is a place of not one, but two Michelin-star restaurants and a multi-award-winning Mytha Spa, personalised wellness programs and irresistible sea view guestrooms, not to mention the quaint charms of Anacapri and Mount Solaro on your doorstep.
Where better place to start than with a look at the divine cuisine you can expect to enjoy, when staying at Capri Palace? Nearby Il Riccio seafood restaurant (run by Capri Palace) holds a coveted Michelin-star, which is rare in this part of the country, yet onsite L’Olivo – the hotel’s contemporary Italian eatery – holds two. The seasonal, locally sourced dishes served in both are elevated to phenomenal heights by their respective executive chefs, and given Capri Palace’s love of the arts, every plate is presented like a mini masterpiece in its own right too. The setting of each is hard to beat, with Il Riccio being perched above the Blue Grotto sea cave and semi-open-air L’Olivo set beside the pool. A further super-stylish cocktail bar, laidback bistro on the terrace and wine cellar of over 10,000 vintage labels – available for tastings – completes the superb gastronomic journey here.
Your time at Capri Palace is certainly going to involve its fair share of fine dining moments and blissful views too, as the property enjoys sweeping panoramas over the Bay of Naples from its swimming pool and sundeck, the bistro and many of the guestrooms. Inside, Capri Palace then blends architectural tradition with outright modernity. The arched doorways, thick columns and vine-covered balconies here house sparkling glass-clad bathrooms, all-white and fully contemporary guestrooms, clever art installations and bespoke pieces throughout – including entire suites dedicated to certain artists such as Andy Warhol. Many of these uber-cool Capri Palace rooms and suites enjoy a furnished balcony with charming views, while some boast a private pool, gardens and terraces too, though all are finished to the same high standards.
The multi-award winning Mytha Spa at Capri Palace is another major highlight, with cutting-edge wellness therapies tailored to you personally, massage, yoga, nutritional programs, thalassotherapy and traditional beauty care treatments among the many reasons to stop by. Finally, the quieter location of Capri Palace means the best of all possible worlds, as the island attractions are still easily accessed from this unique Bay of Naples hotel.
Capri Palace and Spa Facilities
68 Capri Palace guestrooms enjoy either garden or sea views, plus a terrace, balcony or large light-giving windows, and subtly individual design touches between each category. Throughout, it’s contemporary-cool in every way, white or cream walls, traditional floor tiles in some and well-preserved original architecture in others, beautifully appointed bathrooms and outright sophistication to every inch. You’ll also find bespoke artworks in these utterly elegant spaces, with upgrades affording you balconies or private pools.
Anacapri, Capri, Italy. The closest airport is Naples, and from there the quickest way to get to the island is a transfer to Naples harbour followed by a hydrofoil, which takes around 50 minutes.
