Oetker Collection has brought the iconic dolce vita lifestyle to its first Italian property, Hotel La Palma in Capri. Originally built in 1822, the hotel has been transformed into an elegant and exclusive 50-room-and-suite hotel located just steps away from the famous Piazzetta. This boutique hotel features a rooftop restaurant and bar, a beach club, a pool deck, a spa, high-fashion boutiques, and 50 rooms, each with its own private balcony or terrace.
The hotel’s interiors are being transformed by two acclaimed architects: Francesco Delogu of Delogu Architects in Rome for the rooms and public areas and Francis Sultana in London for the restaurants, pool, spa, and beach club. As a result, hotel La Palma will once again become the chicest address on the island for people who want to see and be seen.
In addition to the indulgent spa with three treatment rooms, a sauna, steam bath, ice shower, relaxation space, and fitness centre, Hotel La Palma is perfectly positioned for guests to visit some of the most notable sites of Capri. These include I Giardini di Augusto, Via Krupp, La Certosa, and the iconic Faraglioni. The Blue Grotto, a must-visit natural site on the island, is also easily accessible from the hotel.
Under the culinary direction of Michelin-starred Chef Gennaro Esposito, Gennaro’s is a true gourmand’s delight. This contemporary and vibrant restaurant shuns formality and celebrates the spirit and cuisine of Capri, serving unpretentious, authentic Italian cuisine. Another highlight is Bianca, a glamorous rooftop restaurant and bar open until late, with spectacular views over the sea and Capri Village.
The hotel also features a brand-new pool deck with an elegant pool bar and Da Gioia by La Palma, the hotel’s elegant and buzzing beach club. This beach club invites guests to enjoy all-day dining with delicious offerings devised by Chef Gennaro Esposito. With stunning views of the iconic Faraglioni, Da Gioia by La Palma has 42-day beds, perfectly positioned for dips in the mesmerising turquoise waters of Capri.
With a private beach for up to 8 guests, serviced by a dedicated team and accompanied by a host of exclusive amenities, Da Gioia by La Palma is where sun-drenched days flow into glittering twilight evenings—the place to rendezvous and revel in La Dolce Vita.
