San Montano Resort & Spa, Ischia
As you’re greeted with a cool glass of lemonade, made with fresh fruit from the hotel’s gardens, you’ll have the chance to drink in the breathtaking views. Perched high on a hill with sweeping views over the Bay of San Montano, surrounding mountains, pine forest and white-washed villages, the hotel offers the perfect setting for winding down. Take a dip in the main pool or follow steps down to one of the thermal pools to experience the healing effect of the warm waters while enjoying the soothing sound of the waterfalls. The sun-drenched terraces are the perfect place to soak up the views or enjoy an indulgent nap.
The panoramic terrace at La Veranda dei Sapori restaurant offers an incredible setting for mouth-watering meals that make use of the island’s natural resources such as creamy mozzarella, tomatoes, olive oil and basil. Enjoy a rich buffet breakfast with homemade pastries and smooth espressos, and romantic dinners with choices including the catch-of-the-day, fresh pasta and salads. The chef is happy to cater for food intolerances and can offer gluten-free dishes. There is also a range of healthy dishes to complement the spa programmes which range from one day to one week. The gourmet restaurant Franco's overlooks the bay and offers contemporary island cuisine created with seasonal produce and enhanced with herbs from the kitchen garden. Head to the piano bar’s roof terrace for after-dinner drinks and don’t miss the incredible views over the island at sunset as the fiery sky lights up in a blaze of red, orange and pink.
