Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Cala Ponte Hotel is a lovely, modern hotel on Puglia’s stunning coastline. The centre of Polignano a Mare, a buzzing seaside town, is just two kilometres away - it's a great town to explore with lots of arty shops and some of the best gelaterias in Puglia. This area is also an ideal base for visiting the rest of central Puglia with towns like Ostuni and Alberbello just a short drive away. 

This hotel is well-kept. Minimalistic guest rooms have been finished in warm colours and they've all got a private patio area so you can spend time relaxing outside. There's a large outdoor pool with gently-sloping access that makes it ideal for families with younger children. There’s a second adult’s only pool too that overlooks the countryside - perfect if you want some peace and quiet.

A large choice of bars, restaurants and shops can be found in the centre of Polignano a Mare, which is just a ten-minute drive away. If you’d rather eat at the hotel, you’ll be able to enjoy local cuisine that’s been made with the freshest local ingredients. It's a real treat.

Car hire is recommended for this hotel. Cala Ponte Hotel is approx. 30 mins from Bari airport or 55 mins from Brindisi airport.

Central Puglia

The centre of this large region is characterised by the fertile Murgia plateau which forms a gently rolling landscape dotted with olive groves. Many of our hotels are located in or near the Itria Valley which is famous for the strange trulli houses and picturesque whitewashed villages. This area is also a great destination for those in search of a relaxing beach holiday, as the superb coastlines of both the Adriatic and the Ionian seas with fine sandy beaches are only a short drive away. Make sure you take the time to visit a masseria where you can taste the extra virgin olive oil and locally made wines.

The hotel’s restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is continental and if you choose to eat lunch or dinner here you'll get to enjoy the fresh ingredients that are used to create local and Mediterranean dishes. You can eat in the dining room or head outside to the terrace.

The restaurant by he pool serves light lunches like fresh salads and sandwiches. They have great selection of wine too, why not try a chilled glass of local white sat out here on the terrace. Its a great place for cocktails in the evening too, when the pools lit up. The daily menu is inspired by the seasonal local produce. Dinners can be enjoyed outside on the terrace or in the light and spacious dining room.
