Expert Review

A short walk from the main square in Anacapri, this intimate Relais & Chateaux hotel is perched on the edge of a cliff 1000 feet above the Bay of Naples and the bustle of Capri town. The panoramic location means that there are pretty spectacular views from the water-side rooms, which see nothing but blue sky and sea from their balconies. (Rooms facing the gardens or courtyard also have lovely – if not quite so dramatic – vistas.) As the hotel is set on a series of cliffside terraces, be prepared for lots of steps; it’s a bit of a climb from the outdoor massage nook, herb gardens, and steam grotto up through the pool and restaurant level, reception, and up to all the guest floors. The 55 rooms and suites are located in both the 19th-century main building – once the home of a Russian Prince – as well as in a few newer outlaying additions. Though they vary in size and shape, the décor in all is simple and charming, with wrought-iron bed frames, wooden writing desks, and overstuffed couches; all feature balconies, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and olive oil bath and body products made in Tuscany (suites also have hot tubs). A weekly manager’s cocktail hour, cozy library nook, and chatty staff help make guests feel right at home.
