Another great hotel our JDB team visited and experienced this past fall was the Mezza Torre Resort and Spa. This 5 star hotel is located on the island of Ischia just north of Capri.
Ischia is a beautiful island and is noted for its thermal hot springs and relaxing beaches. It is a popular tourist destination for Germans and Eastern Europeans and for the Italians, who frequent this island as their holiday destination.
We stayed on this island for two nights and had the opportunity to explore it. While staying here we had a special tour of the Botanical Gardens: Giardini La Mortella, the thermal spas and the small seaside town of Sant’Angelo.
The Mezza Torre hotel has two personalities. The main tower houses a lobby, spa and some of the rooms overlook the blue sea. The other 50 rooms are spread out in a series of buildings on the grounds surrounded by woods. There is a private beach which is only used by the guests of the hotel.
I did not take the opportunity to experience the spa but other members of our group did and they were thrilled with the offerings. The spa offers a full range of treatments using the best products. Within the spa they have their own thermal waters.
There are two restaurants at this lovely resort. One restaurant/bar is near the beach so you don’t have to go far to satisfy your appetite. We had the pleasure to experience this delicious food for lunch one afternoon and the chef really displayed his talents. The other restaurant which offers a full buffet breakfast and dinners is located in another area. The food here was top notch!
Want that after dinner drink? The little piazza outside of the tower will satisfy your desire for such. Sit under the stars and let the waiter cater to your whim.
If you are looking for a different island feel go no further and stay at this relaxing hotel with its own beach. You can fill your days with exploring other parts of this island: there are thermal spas to experience, shopping, a beautiful botanical garden, cooking classes, wine tastings and more.
