Capri Palace Jumeirah in Anacapri welcomes guests from 25 June until 30 September 2020

Enjoying an idyllic location in Anacapri, a safe haven and one of the most exclusive and unspoiled parts of the island, Capri Palace Jumeirah sits high up on a hill overlooking the Gulf of Naples, offering 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. The hotel will strictly follow the directives of the Italian Government and has extensive preventative measures in place for the safety of all.

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, has been awarded two stars; while Il Riccio Restaurant & Beach Club is the only one Michelin star beach club in the world. The club, which clings to the rocky coastline, will be open for lunch and dinner and is known for providing some of the best local seafood on the island, especially their sea urchins from which the restaurant takes its name.

Art and design are at the heart of this 68-room 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.

Ermanno Zanini, General Manager of Capri Palace Jumeirah and Regional Vice President for Italy and Spain said“We are delighted to welcome our guests back to Capri Palace Jumeirah. Our team have eagerly awaited this moment and are ready to provide the excellent service and unrivalled culinary experiences the hotel is known for, synonymous with Jumeirah’s brand values.

Private transfers by speedboat or helicopter, leaving from Naples or Sorrento, are available on request.
