Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Botania Relais & Spa has an incredible setting. It’s surrounded by seven acres of beautiful park and as there’s only 52 rooms, it’s easy to find your own secluded spot to guarantee a relaxing holiday. Trails wind through the gardens so you can enjoy walks through the grounds that are filled with fruit trees and aromatic plants. Or, just sit back by the heated pool. There’s plenty of sun loungers and shady spots if you need to escape the sun for a while.

This is an authentic Italy hotel with welcoming staff and traditional rooms and a great thermal spa. The hotel’s restaurant, il Corbezzolo, is wonderful. It serves typical dishes from Ischia using the freshest local food – many of the ingredients have been grown in their own organic vegetable garden. Enjoy wood-fired Neapolitan pizza, salads and freshly-caught seafood.

If you’re here to explore Ischia, you’ll love the location of this hotel. Some of the most popular sights on the island are easily reached. Lacco Ameno is Ischia’s smallest town and is just a ten-minute walk from the hotel (down some steps). It’s a charming seaside resort with restaurants and shops around the harbour. Stop here for a morning coffee and breathe in the fresh sea air. Just along the coast you’ll find the stunning white-sand beach of San Montano and the Negombo Thermal Park that has a range of healing thermal circuits surrounded by tropical plants, flowers and trees. It’s the ultimate relaxing day out and a must-do while you’re in Ischia.

This hotel only accepts children aged 12 and over.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 50 mins by private car and hydrofoil/ferry from Naples airport.

Island of Ischia

Ischia is an example of island life done the Italian way. It’s the biggest island in the Bay of Naples, laying out medieval castles, clifftop botanical gardens, sandy beaches, hot springs and lively harbour towns along its coastline.

The centre of the island is another story altogether. Here, Mount Epomeo scrapes the clouds. Hikers tackle its sloping walking trails, which wander past caves and pine-green forests. You’ll even find the occasional vineyard clinging to the rocky slopes – usually family-run affairs with swooping views over the Bay of Naples.



The hotel has a heated outdoor swimming pool (28°C) next to the gardens with plenty of shady spots provided by pergolas. There's also two indoor pools. One is heated to 34°C and the other has massage jets and is heated to 32°C (for guests aged over 12 years). Pool towels are provided.

Spa & Fitness

The spa at the Botania Relais & Spa uses the natural healing properties of the thermal water that Ischia is known for. You can enjoy the varying temperatures of the pools where there are five types of hydro massage and relax in the Turkish baths in the beautiful setting of a natural cave. The facilities are all included and if you'd like any beauty treatments or massages they are available and payable locally. A small fitness area has two treadmills, stationary bikes and some weight machines. They even offer a free yoga sessions in the park gardens.
