With just 52 rooms set in over seven acres of beautiful park, the Botania Relais & Spa promises guests a truly relaxing stay.

This authentic property has welcoming staff, traditional rooms and superb grounds that are characterised by fruit trees and aromatic plants. Trails wind through the gardens so you can enjoy pleasant walks through the grounds that also house a lovely heated pool with plenty of sun loungers and shady spots in which to relax. The hotel’s restaurant, il Corbezzolo, offers 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 in an elegant atmosphere.

Botania Relais & Spa is also ideally placed for visiting some of the most popular sights on the island. Lacco Ameno is Ischia’s smallest town and is within a ten-minute walk of the hotel (down some steps). It’s a charming seaside resort with restaurants and shops dotted around a harbour. Just along the coast from here you’ll find the stunning San Montano beach with fine white sands and clear shallow waters and the Negombo Thermal Park with a range of healing thermal circuits that are surrounded by tropical plants, flowers and trees.

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.

Inghams operate a telephone Rep service on the Island of Ischia.

Things to do in resort


This little island between Ischia and the mainland is one of the Neapolitan Riviera’s best kept secrets. A stunning landscape of pastel-coloured houses lead down to the quanit harbour where you can sample the freshest seafood.

La Mortella Gardens

These award-winning botanical gardens are an exquisite blend of exotic flowers and ornate fountains, all carefully arranged to allow glimpses of the glistening Mediterranean.

Thermal Spas

Ischia’s volcanic origins means the island is home to numerous thermal spas. Many hotels have wellness centres using the natural waters, or head to one of the thermal gardens that combine pools with lush green surroundings.
