The Capofaro Malvasia Resort on Salina in the Aeolian Islands represents an oasis of peace dominated by two colors: The deep blue of the Mediterranean sea and the harmonious green of the vineyards where the Malvasia delle Lipari grape is grown, producing one of the most prestigious aromatic wines to be found in Italy. Owned by the well-known Sicilian wine making family Tasca d'Almerita, this 5-star resort offers the ultimate Italian beach experience with an enogastronomic twist - it is also an environmentally-sensitive working vineyard and winery.
Eighteen guestrooms and Suites comprise this boutique property whose pure white decor, inspired by Mediterranean traditions, is both elegantly refined and utterly simple. All of the suites feature outside terraces with views across the Malvasia vineyards to the waves below. In the distance, the islands of Panarea and Stromboli can be made out across the shimmering sea.
The resort's restaurant offers guests a territory-first menu based chiefly on island produce, the day's catch and carefully selected artisan products that form part of Tasca d'Almerita's signature "Natura in Tasca" line. Sharing the same panoramic terrace as the restaurant is the well-stocked Lounge Bar, ideal for an aperitif before sitting down to a romantic dinner.
Capofaro Malvasia Resort's freshwater pool is flanked by a wide sundeck; nearby, a pine-shaded relaxation area is the perfect spot for an al fresco massage. Spa treatments can also be enjoyed in the nearby Garden Cottage, and the resort hosts periodic yoga and Pilates retreats led by celebrity teachers.
Additional Information: The hotel is closed from January 1 until the end of April.
