An island within an island, this peaceful hotel is surrounded by Ischia’s most exclusive villas.

Sitting proudly in the heart of Ischia lies this classic hotel. Despite its central location, it's perfect for those seeking peace and tranquillity thanks to the spacious layout of the hotel. Look out from its terraces and you'll gaze at breathtaking views of Procida, Vivara and the imposing Aragonese Castle.

The hotel is Mediterranean in style with a large sun terrace surrounding the outdoor pool while the Spiaggia di Cafiero beach is just 500 metres away. For pure indulgence, a visit to the Nefertiti thermal spa centre is a must. The thermal waters here are drawn from a 60-metre-deep spring and have a healing effect. The centre also offers a full range of treatments and therapies, all designed to leave the body refreshed, invigorated and soothed.

Dining takes place in the Pulcinella Restaurant where the cuisine is a blend of international style mixed with fresh fish, meat and organic vegetables. Admire spectacular scenery of the surrounding sea and coastline while you dine.

The rooms are simply furnished and Standard Double Window Lateral Sea View Rooms are set on the lower floors with side sea views and garden views. To enjoy sea views from your balcony you can upgrade to a Superior Double Balcony Front Sea View Room or a Standard Double Balcony Lateral Sea View Room.
