, Via Tragara, 8, Capri, Campania.
The island of Capri has been attracting the jet-set since at least the 1950s, and La Scalinatella has been here from the beginning. Famed for its rugged landscape, upscale hotels and designer fashions, this is an island that epitomises Italian class and style. La Scalinatella five star hotel is the perfect place to enjoy it at its best.
Reached via a flower-festooned pedestrian path, the hotel stands high on the hillside amongst Mediterranean pine trees and its terraces overlook the Tyrrhenian Sea. The hotel has not one but two gorgeous swimming pools, both of which face towards the gleaming blue sea. A poolside snack-bar service is available at both. Guests at La Scalinatella can enjoy a full range of wellness services in the privacy of their room. Massages, beauty treatments, and hair care can all be booked directly at the reception. For those keen on a more active time whilst on holiday, there is a gym equipped with the latest Technogym equipment.
The huge reception area and lounge are immaculately furnished, with glistening tiled floors and antiques that delight the eyes. The restaurant is open daily for breakfast and lunch. All the best-loved island specialities are served in the poolside restaurant, overlooking the sea and the Bay of Marina Piccola. There is no fixed menu: the head waiter will list the dishes of the day, all of which are prepared with the freshest of locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. The main bar is located in the lobby. Drinks are served at the bar, by the pool, on the panoramic terrace, and on the garden terrace.
From the hand painted majolica floor tiles, to the vaulted ceilings, and valuable antiques, every detail has been carefully designed to make the hotel's bedrooms the most exquisite and intimate of island retreats. Many memorable moments will be spent on your bedroom terrace: a stunning open air living room from where sweeping views of the sea and the picturesque bay of Marina Piccola can be seen. All the rooms and suites have same features and style, but vary in size from 65m2 suites to the 25-30m2 classic rooms. Even these smallest (not really small, at all!) rooms have a sitting area, a bathroom with both shower and bath and a private terrace with table, chairs and sun loungers.
La Scalinatella is a five star hotel in one of the most exclusive parts of Capri, just 450 metres from Capri's Piazzetta square, famous for its fashionable street cafés. Boats to the mainland leave from Marina Grande harbour, 1 km away. The concierge service will arrange just about any activity desired, from visits to the Blue Grotto to private yacht charters.
