Punta Tragara Hotel

Captivating views in Capri

Perched atop the famed Faraglioni rock formations that line the Italian coast, the peach-hued Punta Tragara blooms like a rare flower, crowning its cliffside sanctuary. Built as a private residence in 1920 by pioneering architect Le Corbusier, the four-story modernist retreat was unlike anything else in Capri, offering awe-inspiring views to match its pedigree. A century and several renovations later, the resort still oozes Italian opulence like few others can.

A 2022 refresh by architect Giorgia Dennerlein kept the luxury hotel’s bones intact, instead, Dennerlein chose to update furnishings with pieces from both Italian and international designers that emanate 1930s glamour with a modern sensibility. Contemporary fixtures are scattered throughout in a thoughtful way that doesn’t impose on the authenticity of the antique paintings and original tapestries that adorn the hall. The result is a unique seasonal resort in a one-of-a-kind destination — it’s a celebration of Capri itself.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Punta Tragara’s recent redesign honors the hotel’s history with a smattering of rose motifs in the updated furnishings and renovated original details like the wooden handrails on the main staircase.
  • The Capri hotel’s newest accommodation might also be its most luxurious. Debuted in 2022, the Pegaso Etro Suite (designed by Milan-based fashion house Etro) boasts a private spa and multi-level panoramic terrace.
  • You’ll want to spend the majority of your time outdoors while in Capri, especially at this hotel. Sprawling gardens and spacious terraces invite you to linger in the fresh air while two freshwater swimming pools (one heated with whirlpool jets) provide the perfect way to cool off all while gazing at the seemingly endless Tyrrhenian Sea.
  • If you can tear yourself away from the Mediterranean views, head to Gili Wellness Beauty & Spa for some well-deserved pampering. Or prepare for a night out with a stop at the renowned Fabrizio Narducci Hair Boutique.
  • Sit down for a meal at Le Monzù, an acclaimed dining destination helmed by Capri-born executive chef Luigi Lionetti. The restaurant’s setting is as enticing as its tasting menu, with sea vistas to complement the seafood-focused offerings.

The Rooms

  • Scattered across three floors, the boutique hotel’s 38 rooms and six suites are each unique, though all boast balconies, terraces or patios with overlooking the property’s gorgeous gardens or the shimmering sea.
  • Superior and Deluxe rooms typically feature more minimalist, contemporary furnishings anchored by a neutral palette. Pops of color can be found in patterned accent chairs or pillows, but the main attraction is the sea or garden views from your balcony.
  • Some Junior Suites have a two-level floorplan with separate living and sleeping areas. Private walled terraces make relaxing in solitude a breeze — especially if you order room service to enjoy alfresco.
  • For the ultimate in Italian opulence, opt for one of Punta Tragara’s specialty suites. Not only will you enjoy creature comforts like wrap-around terraces and sea-view soaking tubs, but you’ll also be surrounded by other distinguishing design features like modern sculptures paired with antique-inspired busts or textured walls with vaulted ceilings.
