Capri Tiberio Palace

A funky, bright stay

When you step into Capri Tiberio Palace, it leaves an impression. The boutique hotel greets you with quirky art, retro pieces and a ’50s and ’60s aesthetic. Take time to explore each corner — you could find pink and purple jellyfish dangling from above next to a staircase, and then near the pool, a white sculpted figure with goggles crouches to launch off a diving board in a confined space covered with wallpaper showcasing a diver.

There’s natural beauty as well. Walk the vine-covered paths to a verdant terrace garden (which provides many of the restaurant's ingredients) with a view of the Bay of Naples. The hotel’s grounds include a terrace with a swimming pool, a spa, Jacky Bar — a nightlife destination — and Terrazza Tiberio restaurant. But if you want out of the oasis, the property is a short stroll from the Piazzetta and conveniently near Capri town’s bevy of boutiques and the island’s most illustrious monuments and sites, including Villa Jovis (the 1st-century remains of emperor Tiberius’ palace) and Marina Piccola.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Landmark Jacky Bar nods to 1950s Cuba with a white grand piano fronting a wall lined with Borsalino panama hats. Interesting cocktails and singular views of the Mediterranean Sea from the terrace help make it a favorite bar on the island.
  • SPA Tiberio is a nearly 6,500-square-foot wellness oasis across two floors. The water zone is dedicated to wet wellness with multisensory showers, a sauna, a steam room and a relaxation area; a heated pool stretches inside and out; and a second-floor gym has state-of-the art equipment and yoga, Pilates and meditation training.
  • Dine at the Mediterranean restaurant Terrazza Tiberio to gaze at sparkling sea vistas while enjoying the morning buffet, an afternoon pizza or the evening tasting menu.
  • The interior design is funky and bold. You won’t find cookie-cutter spaces anywhere on the property.
  • For La Dolce Vita glamour, book the Bellevue Suite, a gorgeous 2,700-square-foot space with mid-century furniture, a heated plunge pool, an outdoor dining area, a fitness area and panoramic balconies overlooking the bay and Capri town.

The Rooms

  • The 54 uniquely decorated rooms and suites came from Milan designer Giampiero Panepinto.
  • Each eclectic room has colors inspired by the island (like sandy tan, bright blue and coral) accented with hand-painted Caprese floor tiles and retro design pieces.
  • The accommodations showcase vintage pieces and eclectic art collected from around the world. A one-bedroom suite pays homage to travel with a stacked suitcase table under the television, a floor globe and a large Pan Am-logoed sign.
