Tucked away in a beautiful park overlooking the Gulf of Naples, this elegant hotel has a central location and a thermal spa.

Ideally located near the island’s main port, this classic hotel – once a nobleman’s residence – offers a peaceful retreat close to the town centre. Surrounded by pine trees, shrubs and flower-filled Mediterranean gardens, the hotel has a relaxed ambience with plenty of space to unwind. Enjoy fresh fruit and cocktails by the pool, settle into one of the freestanding garden hammocks with a good book, or follow the path through the gardens and cross a side road to the hotel’s small private beach to swim in the clear waters. The Roman-style thermal spa showcases the island’s healing waters and therapeutic treatments. Soak in the thermal waters of the indoor pool and let the invigorating underwater jets and waterfalls soothe any aching muscles. You can also combine the therapeutic properties of the mineral-rich waters with therapies such as circulation massages and mud treatments with one of the spa programmes.

Take breakfast on the terrace to make the most of the spellbinding views over the bay towards Mount Vesuvius. The Belvedere restaurant serves traditional Mediterranean cuisine with fresh fish and vegetables from the hotel’s garden and in keeping with the hotel’s wellbeing focus there is an emphasis on flavoursome healthy dishes that use low-fat ingredients. You can also enjoy a taste of the local cuisine down on the beach bar, stay refuelled with some snacks and drinks by the pool or venture out of the hotel to discover a number of restaurants just a stroll away. Wind down in the evening with some live music and cocktails at the piano bar.

The Standard Double Rooms with Balcony are cosy and overlook the gardens. It’s worth upgrading to a Superior Sea View Room or a Junior Suite Sea View with Balcony on one of the upper floors for extra space and sea views.
