Hotel Praia Art Resort

Isola di Capo Rizzuto, Calabria

  • Adult only Hotel, ideal for couples
  • Boutique and romantic
  • Michelin starred restaurant
  • Venture further afield to explore ancient villages and the wild landscape of Calabria

A refined oasis of tranquillity the Adults only five star Praia Art Resort, part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, is one of the jewels of the spectacular Ionian coast of Calabria, Italy’s best kept secret for some time but increasingly on the radar of discerning travellers seeking out the road to less travelled parts of Italy.

Located in Isola di Capo Rizzuto in Calabria, beside the protected Marine Reserve, the resort makes a striking first impression with the tasteful, if somewhat quirky,  décor - a combination of authentic Mediterranean design and modern luxury touches, its rooms and suites sit perfectly in their natural surroundings. Visit the private beach, take in the breathtaking views of the Ionian Sea and savour mouth-watering local flavours at the 1 Michelin Star Restaurant. Further afield there is an abundance of things to do in Calabria, including visiting the National Archaeological Museum and Aspromonte National Park.
