Reopening as Capri Palace, Jumeirah in April 2020, this beautiful Italian property enjoys an idyllic location in bustling Anacapri, one of the most exclusive and unspoiled parts of the island. The hotel, founded by Tonino Cacace, stands high up on a hill overlooking the Gulf of Naples and fully embodies the Italian Dolce Vita; with an authentic Capri style and far reaching sea views.
Designed in the style of an eighteenth-century Neapolitan palazzo, Capri Palace has attracted the great and the good since it first opened its doors in the 1960s, swiftly establishing itself as the island’s most iconic hotel. Under Jumeirah’s direction, the property is set to continue to go from strength to strength with exciting upgrades and refurbishments in the pipeline.
Art and design are at the heart of this hotel; and the elegant white-washed walls, arched ceilings, and columns create a sense of serenity as soon as guests step through the door. The light and airy interiors are filled with historic and contemporary artwork with tributes to the works of Mirò, Magritte and Warhol. The reverence for contemporary art continues in The White Museum collection, dispersed throughout the hotel, which recounts the spirit of Anacapri and includes pieces by De Chirico, Keith Haring, and Pomodoro, amongst others.
The tasteful interiors of the open spaces flow into the 68 guest rooms. White, blue and neutral tones create an unmistakably Mediterranean atmosphere, while the ceramic tiles and bespoke furniture evoke the sense of an Italian family home, ensuring guests are well rooted in their surroundings.
In line with Jumeirah’s commitment to offering exceptional culinary experiences, Capri Palace, Jumeirah is home to three of the island’s Michelin stars. The hotel’s signature restaurant L’Olivo, which serves Mediterranean classics with an extensive wine list, has been awarded two stars, while Il Riccio – the hotel’s private beach club – has one, and is the only beach club in the world to do so. Il Riccio, which clings to the rocky coastline, is known for providing some of the best local seafood on the island, especially their sea urchins from which the restaurant takes its name.
