Old and new are sensitively blended here, thanks to architect Corrado Papa. Many suites line a huge central swimming pool, while others look out onto what's considered the longest pool on the island, at 100 metres.
Service is excellent and discreet. There are two swimming pools, grass tennis courts, a small gym and a spa. The free shuttle to the exclusive beach makes up for the inland location. The hotel has three dogs.
