Hotel La Palma Capri
What it is
A storied 1822 hideaway, newly revamped with 50 exquisite rooms, a buzzing beach club, new sceney pool deck, and tricked-out spa (yes, that’s an ice shower).
What it isn't
On a budget. The property renovation was perfected by a globally renowned team, including London’s Francis Sultana and Roman architect Francesco Delogu.
What we think
In the 19th century, artists of every stripe flocked to this inn—the oldest on Capri—to mix and mingle with style. Clearly, the aesthetic pleasures remain; in fact, they’re better than ever. Each room has its own terrace or balcony, and is adorned in a serene palette of flaxen neutrals and Tyrrhenian Sea-inspired blues. But as with everything, the beauty is in the details; many feature architectural touches that will drop even the most well-heeled globetrotter’s jaw, including barrel vaulted ceilings and Art Deco-inspired furniture. Paired with eye candy views of Capri’s namesake ancient waterfront village, don’t be surprised if you never want to leave.
You're here because

Sitting alongside the sparkling marina in the hotel’s open air beach club, you can’t help but stare. Not at the yachts bobbing on the water, or the George Clooney-esque waiter, but at your bellini: the best you’ve ever tasted.
