Its summertime, and for most of us, that means vacation time! If you are thinking about a luxurious Italian escape, you may want to consider one of these five 5-star options! I definitely would not turn my nose up at any of them!
1. Alpenpalace Hotel & Spa
2. Baia dei Faraglioni Resort
3. Capri Palace Hotel & Spa
4. Grand Hotel Mazzaro Sea Palace
5. The Grand Hotel Rimini
Alpenpalace Hotel & Spa. Choosing this luxury hotel in Italy will provide a gorgeous backdrop, in the form of mountains. This picturesque hotel is nestled among the Trentino Alto Adige mountains in the quaint town of San Giovanni in the Valle Aurina. Aside from being gorgeous, this 5-star hotel is noted for superb hospitality, amenities, and of course, Italian cuisine!
The Alpenpalace features a sprawling manicured garden, ideal for relaxing evening walks and photos. There is a beautiful swimming pool, and full wellness center with a luxury spa for that extra bit of pampering. After you are fully relaxed, you may want to hit up the hotel’s Lounge Bar and enjoy a cool after dinner adult beverage!
Baia dei Faraglioni Resort. This stunner is situated overlooking a pristine bay, complete with cliffs of rock. The Adriatic Sea here is a marvelous turquoise, just like a postcard. It also happens to be in Puglia’s Gargano Peninsula, one of the most gorgeous parts of Italy.
The hotel and rooms are elegantly appointed, true 5-star style in fresh neutral tones. All modern amenities are available, with some suites offering private pools, gardens and solariums. â€¨
This resort is known for its high quality cuisine of Italian and regional specialties, called Le Orchidee restaurant. Those seeking lighter fare may want to try the Faraglioni restaurant, located poolside. After dinner drinks and live music can be found at Le Terrazze bar.
Guests of Baia dei Faraglioni Resort can enjoy the sleek luxury yacht, for a sail to the unspoiled shores of Gargano or the Croatian Islands for a day cruise. And of course, there is a full wellness center and the Phytomer Spa for pampering, which they have dubbed an ‘ultra modern beauty farm’. You may want to indulge in a hot Ferrari F430 rental or exotic car rental of your choice after enjoying the spa for a night on the town!
Capri Palace Hotel & Spa. This is one of Italy’s most exclusive 5-star hotels, with 79 luxurious rooms. It is located in the Anacapri, one of the most stunning parts of the island. The views of the sea are amazing, and it is framed by the Bay of Naples and islands Ischia and Procida.
There are the usual suspects at this luxury property, including a 5-star wellness center, spa and dining options. There is also a 150 square meter penthouse with a private circular pool set off by a Mediterranean green roof garden. Sigh.
The décor includes a gold theme, with Louis XVI period furniture. It has a remarkably historic and decidedly luxurious appeal along with limitless entertainment options like daytrips, indulgence and sunbathing.
Grand Hotel Mazzaro Sea Palace. At this exotic Italian hotel you can take in the cliffs overlooking the Bay of Taormina Mare.
There are 88 exquisite guestrooms, adorned with textiles and marble. There are also sumptuous suites available with private amenities such as pools.
The HYD’OR beauty center offers lavish spa treatments for guests. As for cuisine, the Sea Edge restaurant serves up the finest in Mediterranean delights. There is even a stylish piano bar with luxury wines and spirits! I say this place could lift anyone’s spirits.
The Grand Hotel Rimini. This is a national monument under the protection of the Superintendent of Fine Arts, so you know it has to be good!
This 5-star hotel has been in business since 1908, and continues to dazzle. Here you can find 18th century Venetian and French antiques, parquet flooring and chandeliers from the start of the 20th century, a true trip back in time.
There are 117 luxurious rooms and suites, with a hit combination of antique décor coupled with modern technology. There are plenty of forms of entertainment, including banquets and gala events held in the striking ballroom of the hotel, with period-appropriate furnishings. Who hasn’t wanted to play Cinderella sometime?
