Grand Hotel Quisisana

A healing Capri haven

In Capri, there is no address more legendary than Grand Hotel Quisisana, the island’s grande dame. Politicians, royalty and musicians have graced its orange-blossom-scented grounds since the historic hotel’s founding in the mid-1800s as a sumptuous wellness sanatorium.

Translating to "here one heals," the Quisisana is an exclusive resort for well-being, maintaining its decadent yesteryear elegance. Redolent gardens encompass terraces, and the grounds also include pools, restaurants, the iconic Quisi Bar and, of course, the lavish spa.

Just a few steps from Capri’s famed Piazzetta, the 150-room hotel is the place to see and be seen. From morning to the wee hours of the night, Quisisana has a vibe, whether it’s guests enjoying the languid luxury of the pool, or posing at the street-side Quisi Bar.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Quisi Bar is a Capri institution, the watering hole for authors, artists and the decadent avant-garde. The ground-level bar faces Via Camerelle so it’s one of the most coveted hot spots.
  • Wellness is more than tradition, it’s the Quisisana’s raison d’être. For more than 150 years, wellness and curative treatments have been a focus, and that continues today. The spa includes as auna, a Turkish bath and heated pool, a large outdoor zero-edge marble swimming pool, tennis courts and a salon.
  • Take a peek at the Quisi’s theater, an architectural Liberty-style masterpiece designed by Gio Ponti.
  • From the Capri hotel, gaze at amazing views of the Faraglioni, three towering rock formations that jut out from the Mediterranean just off the island's coast.
  • Venture out to the hotel’s leafy park to swim in the zero-edge pool with marble or soak in the whirlpool tub.

The Rooms

  • The rooms and suites feature antiques that pay homage to Quisisana’s past, like rococo headboards, 19th-century bedside tables, vintage tiled floors and period art.
  • Meditative white walls are the background for every room. This is Quisisana's signature color, chosen to show off the spectacular vistas and colors from Capri.
  • Villa Camarelle is the luxury hotel’s three-bedroom abode that comes with its own garden and a personal butler.
