It’s impossible to miss the grand entrance of the Quisisana, just steps from Capri town’s central Piazzetta. This iconic five-star hotel has been the favourite of politicians and poets, royalty and rockstars since it opened in 1845. Outside on the legendary terrace, famous and not-so-famous guests relax and watch the bustling crowds of visitors to the island of Capri pass by. Inside, a luxurious oasis of peace and tranquillity awaits, where shimmering chandeliers, polished marble floors, gilt-framed mirrors, and the warmest of welcomes immediately transport guests to another world.
The boutique-lined Via Camerelle skirts the hotel on one side, and the fragrant gardens overlooking the Mediterranean, complete with a scenic pool and an unforgettable view of the Faraglioni, welcome guests on the other. Glamour, luxury, privacy, and the natural beauty of Capri are the secret of Grand Hotel Quisisana’s 150 years of success.
Each of Grand Hotel Quisisana’s luxurious, light-filled rooms welcomes guests with the effortless Mediterranean elegance for which this enchanting Italian island is famous. Rooms and suites are decorated in various shades of white, Quisisana’s trademark color. Why white?
Because it’s the perfect backdrop for the lush green island, bright Mediterranean sky, and deep turquoise water framed by every window of the hotel. Most rooms look out over the grounds surrounding the hotel swimming pool. Terraces in the suites boast spectacular views of the sea, the Faraglioni, the Charterhouse of San Giacomo and the Gardens of Augustus. For those needing additional space and privacy, the Quisisana has a luxury villa for exclusive use.
Whether it’s for lunch, dinner or a quick break, the Quisisana knows how to satisfy its guests’ taste and does it in an extraordinary way, combining high-quality service and refinement of ingredients, attention in choosing its menu and homage to tradition.
Every time of the day is the right moment to discover its fine dining, its sophisticated selection of drinks and cocktails and its interiors full of charm: from the unbreakable date with the popular aperitivo at Quisi’s, a light lunch at the Colombaia restaurant or a candle-lit dinner served by the pool area.
A bar that is an institution in Capri, that used to be attended by princes, actors, Nobel prizes winners and artists, from Oscar Wilde to Ernest Hemingway, from Onassis to Ingrid Bergman: the Bar Quisi and its terrace facing the entrance to Via Camerelle are, together with the Piazzetta, the most glamorous places to be to watch tourists pass by and relive the “Dolce vita”. Its menu offers an extensive selection of wine, aperitivo, spirits, whisky, rum and fine cocktails mixed by the expert bar tenders of the Quisi Bar, always willing to create custom-made cocktails for any taste.
The Grand Hotel Quisisana carries with it a promise of well-being and serenity. Since 1845—when it first opened as a health clinic—its name involves an important mission: offering its guests health and complete relaxation.In order to do so, it expresses wellness in any form: it offers its beautiful location surrounded by the blue of the Mediterranean Sea, as well as a luxurious spa, with a sauna, Turkish bath and heated pool, a large outdoor zero-edge swimming pool in marble with whirlpool jets, a spa for high-end massage and beauty treatments and a hair salon.
