A wellness hotel with thermal pools and a fantastic setting on Maronti beach, near Sant’ Angelo village.

This classic family-owned hotel overlooks Ischia’s largest beach and has one of the best locations on the island. Its quiet south coast setting is perfect for a relaxing escape and with such welcoming staff and excellent wellness facilities it’s no wonder that guests return here time and time again. There’s a real sense of space throughout the hotel and a number of serene places in which to relax – either in the pretty sub-tropical gardens, on the terrace which has amazing coastal views, by the outdoor thermal pool or on the beach. Spa fans are in for a real treat as all guests have complimentary access to the indoor wellness area which makes the most of Ischia’s natural resources. In the two thermal pools you can let the invigorating hydromassage jets pummel your aching muscles or experience the benefits of reflexology by walking through the Kneipp circuit. If you prefer to experience the healing properties of seawater then the beach is just steps away. Feel the coarse volcanic sand exfoliate your feet as you walk into the water or flop on a sun lounger under a parasol.

With the beach so tantalisingly close, a quick dip in the sea before breakfast is a refreshing way to start your day. The restaurant offers buffets with dishes inspired by traditional Mediterranean cooking, such as Neapolitan ragout and local produce including juicy tomatoes and other vegetables from the hotel’s organic garden, home-made jam made with fruit from the orchard, and fresh fish. Enjoy low-key evenings with lounge music in the bar or head out to the terrace to watch the sun set while sipping prosecco or an after-dinner limoncello.

The rooms are warmly furnished with hand-painted tiles and carved beech wood furniture. Standard Rooms overlook the terrace or gardens and you can upgrade to a room with a balcony. For sea views, opt for one of the spacious Superior Rooms which overlook beautiful Maronti Bay.
