Blu Capri Relais is the latest name to be added to the list of Capri's glamorous hotels. Situated in the historic center of Anacapri, considered by many to be by far the most exclusive part of the island, the hotel offers a luxurious combination of classic Mediterranean elegance, cutting-edge contemporary design, fabulous creative cuisine and state-of-the-art wellness facilities.
Blu Capri Relais' 19 design bedrooms and suites are all individually decorated in essential contemporary style, in which only the occasional reference to the past can be found, such as the floors in stone and marble. A number of rooms have balconies overlooking the picturesque historic center, the swimming pool or the green slopes of Monte Solaro.
The menus presented to guests dining at Blu Capri Relais' elegant gourmet restaurant feature dishes inspired by the great Mediterranean gastronomic tradition, and the unique flavors of the island's sun ripened fruit and vegetables. In the summer months, meals are served outdoors in the Lemon Grove.
During the day, guests relax by the mosaic tiled swimming pool with Jacuzzi, basking in the Mediterranean sunshine and nibbling the delicacies served at the poolside snack bar. Aperitifs, light lunches and cocktails are also served on the terrace of hall bar, which, in the evening, transforms into a fashionable meeting point.
One of Italy's prestigious "Comfort Zone" centers, Capri Space wellness centre offers an excellent range of face and body treatments and personalized wellness programs. Wellness facilities include 5 treatment rooms, and a wellness area with Turkish Bath, sauna, Kneipp paths and emotional showers.
Blu Capri Relais is situated on Via Giuseppe Orlandi, the pretty pedestrianized street lined with boutiques, craft shops and artisans studios which winds its way through the historic center of Anacapri.
Just a few meters lie between the hotel and some of the Island of Capri's most famous tourist attractions, such as Villa San Michele (the museum and one-time residence of the Swedish physician and author, Axel Munthe), the chair lift to the summit of Monte Solaro, the Church of San Michele, and the Casa Rossa.
Taxis and buses are available just 50m from the hotel, providing transport to the Grotta Azzurra, the lighthouse of Punta Carena, the Piazzetta and the port of Marina Grande.
