Capri’s first hotel, built in 1822, Hotel La Palma Capri is currently being transformed into an elegant and exclusive 50-room-and-suite hotel. Located mere steps from the famous Piazzetta, it will comprise a rooftop restaurant and bar, its own beach club, a newly built pool deck, a spa and high-fashion boutiques.
Formerly known as Locanda Paganol is the oldest hotel on Capri. The original owner, notary Giuseppe Pagano, hosted travellers in his villa for the pleasure of long conversations and often, his guests were artists, poets, writers, architects, painters and musicians, all who showed their gratitude by painting the walls, writing poems, singing and playing in what was dubbed the ‘Artists’ Hotel.’ A collective of creatives began to gather from all over the world who were inspirited by the genius loci, charmed by the smooth, familiar atmosphere of this eccentric hotel.
The property’s interiors are currently being transformed by two acclaimed architects: Rome-based Francesco Delogu of Delogu Architects for the rooms and public areas, and New York-based Adam Tihany and Alessia Genova of Tihany Design, one of the world’s preeminent hospitality design firms, for the restaurants, pool, spa, and beach club.
Hotel La Palma will offer an indulgent Spa with three treatment rooms, including one double treatment suite, a sauna, steam bath and ice shower, relaxation space and fitness centre.
Hotel La Palma will be Oetker Collection’s reimagined incarnation of Capri’s original hotel that has long hosted a collective of notable artists, poets, writers and musicians from all over the world, and will once again be at the epicentre of the social scene on the island. Oetker Collection’s first Italian property is set bring to life the island’s iconic dolce vita lifestyle.
Hotel La Palma will celebrate the timeless and warm hospitality for which Oetker Collection is known and loved. The property has been conceived for the modern traveller, as a unique, elegant Mediterranean retreat on the fabled Italian island. In true Italian fashion, Hotel La Palma will be a gourmand’s delight, with restaurants and bars under the culinary direction of Michelin-starred chef Gennaro Esposito.
