Excelsior Belvedere Hotel & Spa is a great choice for a luxury escape to Ischia. The service makes this place stand out with the staff always on hand and willing to go the extra mile. They’ll be more than happy to make recommendations for things to see and do on the island.
The standard throughout the whole hotel is very high. There’s traditional Neapolitan design features throughout and spacious rooms, all with private balconies. Choose one overlooking the Mediterranean gardens or opt for sea views. There’s a heated pool in the gardens with some comfy loungers. We love chilling out here with a prosecco and enjoying the sun. There’s also the option of the private beach where loungers are set next to the water. It’s lovely and sandy with a gentle slope into the sea. If you want a bit more pampering, head for the spa. The indoor pool uses the island’s natural thermal water that’s rich in minerals and said to have healing properties.
When it comes to food, you won’t be disappointed. The restaurant is known for its use of locally-sourced food, including ingredients grown in their own garden, so every dish is fresh and delicious. The tables overlook the gardens and the whole place has a very romantic atmosphere.
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 45 mins by private car and hydrofoil/ferry from Naples airport.
