Originally built as a sixteenth-century Jesuit monastery, Grand Hotel Cocumella sits right on the cliff edge in a quiet spot surrounded by wonderfully manicured gardens full of flowers and overlooking the Bay of Naples. With views of Vesuvius, expect monastic architecture, fine dining, a lovely swimming pool and trips on the hotel’s own tall ship.
Walnut furniture, old majolica, frescoed ceilings, gilded mirrors and antiques stamp the period finesse that blends with modern amenities in every guest room. The atmosphere at Grand Hotel Cocumella is friendly and welcoming with staff noted for their helpfulness.
Lunch under the orange trees around the pool. Charter the hotel yacht for a trip to Capri. On your return, play tennis or walk in Grand Hotel Cocumella’s beautiful grounds through wisteria, roses, camellias, geraniums and magnolias. In the evenings, Scintilla Restaurant serves Mediterranean haute-cuisine, or, during the summer try exciting Coku, a Japanese-Mediterranean fusion restaurant.
