A beautiful residence, positioned between the flower-strewn slopes of Monte Solaro and the sparkling Mediterranean sea, Anacapri's Hotel Orsa Maggiore is one of the island of Capri's best kept secrets.
Part luxury villa, part boutique hotel, Orsa Maggiore combines the island's traditional architecture and contemporary Italian interior design to perfection. The hotel's spacious bedrooms and suites, the majority of which enjoy fabulous sea views, are stylishly decorated in soothing shades of cream, coral and oatmeal. Almost all rooms open out onto their own private terrace.
During the warm summer months, guests staying at Anacapri's Hotel Orsa Maggiore inevitably spend much of the day by the panoramic, sea view swimming pool, topping up their tan in the solarium or enjoying a light snack or romantic sun set aperitif at the bar. Occupying a corner of the poolside terrace, the hotel's tiny "La Carruba" restaurant serves a faultless selection of the island's best-loved specialties.
Within easy walking distance of the hotel, the picturesque historic center of Anacapri is home to many craft shops and art galleries as well as the fascinating Casa Rossa and Axel Munthe museums. Of course, nobody should leave the island of Capri without having spent a few hours by the sea, exploring the island's enchanting little beaches and sea-caves or perhaps sailing around its spectacular coastline. The perfect place in which to unwind after a days exploring, Orsa Maggiore's "Alter Ego" wellness center offers an excellent range of massages, performed by highly trained massage therapists.
