Jumeirah unveils Capri Palace in Italy

Capri Palace opens its doors for the first time as a Jumeirah hotel in bustling Anacapri in the heart of Italy

Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hospitality brand, is proud to announce that its beautiful Italian property, Capri Palace Jumeirah, will open its doors for the first time on June 25 this month.

Enjoying an idyllic location in bustling Anacapri, a safe haven and one of the most exclusive and unspoiled parts of the island, the hotel stands high up on a hill overlooking the Gulf of Naples. It fully embodies the Italian Dolce Vita, with an authentic Capri style and 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. Health and safety are Jumeirah’s top priority for everyone who visits, stays, dines or works with Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts.

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 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.

The tasteful interiors of the open spaces flow into the 68 guest rooms. White, blue and neutral tones create an unmistakably Mediterranean atmosphere, whilst the ceramic tiles and bespoke furniture evoke the sense of an Italian family home, ensuring guests are well rooted in their surroundings. 

The hotel team will gladly assist with private transfers by speedboat or helicopter, leaving from Naples or Sorrento.
