Mezzatorre Hotel and Thermal Spa

Neapolitan Riviera, Ischia

  • Intimate, secluded hotel with fabulous views over the bay
  • Extensive spa using exclusive techniques
A member of 'The Leading Hotels of the World', the charming and secluded Mezzatorre Hotel & Thermal Spa enjoys a majestic location on a lush pinnacle of Ischia. This intimate retreat, with fabulous views of San Montano Bay, is located in Forio d’Ischia, not far from the villa where the famous Italian film director Luchino Visconti once lived in.

The beautiful guest rooms are located in either the carefully-restored 15th century tower or hidden amongst an oasis of pine and oak trees. They are tastefully decorated with cool, neutral colours or warmer shades, each one complete with modern comforts.

Both of the hotel's restaurants serve a select choice of Mediterranean dishes. Enjoy dinner in the hotel's main restaurant, La Torre, or overlook the pool and the bay at the La Baia restaurant. Piazzetta Torre is the perfect spot for after dinner drinks and stargazing. Start each morning with the lavish breakfast buffet, which is served on the terrace at La Torre overlooking the hotel’s private bay.

Another great feature of this hotel is its heated outdoor swimming pool and access into the azure sea is via bathing platforms. The extensive spa uses the most exclusive techniques and up to date treatments and the thermal spa is heated with Ischia's precious thermal waters.

Steeped in history, the Mezzatorre Hotel & Thermal Spa benefits from a naturally peaceful location with spacious surroundings, making it an ideal spot for relaxation or rejuvenation.

About the location

Forio is picture-perfect: a stunning medieval seaside town backed by rugged mountains and fronted by a sandy beach. Delve into the warren of historic streets to find architectural gems like the pastel-shaded baroque cathedral and the Il Torrione tower museum – one of twelve 16th-century turrets found in the town – or take a wander down to the sea for one of the island’s finest beaches. Although Forio is Ischia’s second-largest town, this picturesque port is small by mainland standards and still maintains an authentic Italian feel, complete with bustling markets and seafood restaurants. There’s also a great bar culture here, with sophisticated seaside bars offering live music to accompany the views.

Some of Forio’s best attractions are hidden away behind historic walls – namely the town’s botanical gardens, Giardini la Mortella – a spectacular tumble of rare plants from all over the world that climbs into the foothills to a vantage point high above the town. For those looking to relax, there are also a number of thermal spas to enjoy close by. Whether you are looking for historic sights, authentic dining or just a sunbed by the sea, Forio has it covered.
