  • Delicious local cuisine served at White Restaurant

Borgobianco Resort & Spa is situated in the heart of the Puglian countryside, its peaceful setting providing the perfect spot for a tranquil getaway. The hotel perfectly combines rural seclusion with the facilities and level of service expected from a five star hotel, and hiring a car is highly recommended to explore the nearby towns and beaches.
White-washed guest rooms are decorated in a typical, local style and are centered around a large courtyard where you'll find plenty of spots to sit and relax. Private balconies look out over ancient olive trees and groves, whilst some have views over the countryside towards the sea. 

The hotel is perfectly located for exploring some of Puglia's most popular sights. The town of Alberobello, famous for its unique collection of trulli houses, is just a 30-minute drive away, and the centre of Polignano a Mare, which boasts blue-flag beaches, excellent restaurants and local shops is just 15 minutes away. Those wanting to relax will appreciate the hotel's spa, as well as the outdoor pool, surrounded by rolling countryside.

The restaurant serves delicious local cuisine all day long, which guests can enjoy on the large terrace whilst admiring the views. It uses the freshest local ingredients, many of which are sourced from local farms and promises to give diners a truly fantastic experience. For those wanting to celebrate a special occasion or simply a peaceful romantic evening, a candlelit dinner under the stars can even be arranged by the attentive staff.

The hotel has 48 rooms (official rating 5 star). Minimum stay 3 nights during July and August.

About the location

Polignano a Mare is a postcard town settled on Puglia’s Adriatic coast. Its old town clusters on a clifftop, with the newer part of town unfolding behind. The limestone cliffs on this part of the coast are honeycombed with caves. You can swim to some of them straight from the white-pebble beach of Cala Porto; to see those further away, hire a kayak to paddle along the coast.

The old town’s maze of narrow streets are edged with whitewashed houses. Radiating out from the café-lined Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, they twist and turn before emerging out onto panoramic terraces overlooking the coast (perfect spots for watching the cliff divers jumping and somersaulting into the clear waters).

Polignano a Mare puts you in a great position for exploring more of Puglia. Historic Monopoli is only 10 minutes along the coast, the Castellana Caves are 20 minutes’ drive away, and Alberobello’s iconic trulli can be reached in half an hour.

Transfer time

Car hire is recommended for this hotel. Polignano a Mare is 1 hour and 15 minutes from Bari airport and 1 hour from Brindisi airport. Simply call us once you’ve completed your booking and we will talk you through the options.
