World Travel Magazine - - Where To Stay Exclusive Islands -

The thrill of see­ing the drool-wor­thy Amalfi coast from your lux­ury suite is one of life’s won­ders. From Pom­peii to the birth­place of pizza and Sophia Loren in Naples, you be­come a part of his­tory on the is­land of Capri. The first to dis­cover her charms, the ho­tel’s name­sake be­came en­chanted and swapped an­other is­land he con­quered for his beloved Capri. Over the cen­turies the myth­i­cal is­land be­came a haven for writ­ers and po­ets as a sea­sonal es­cape from the cold and a place to find the magic of soli­tude and rus­tic sim­plic­ity. This one-time pri­vate villa, a haven for creatives, re­sides on the edge of a cliff, call­ing you to the far reaches of your imag­i­na­tion–– il­lu­mi­nat­ing your dreams and cre­at­ing an ap­petite for new ad­ven­tures. En­ter­ing a pri­vate code in the el­e­va­tor takes you di­rectly to the Capri Mas­ter Suite, fit for Cae­sar him­self. Arches and col­umns, gor­geous mar­ble bath­rooms and op­u­lent open spa­ces bring an­cient Rome’s ar­chi­tec­ture home to this sanc­tu­ary of the soul which oc­cu­pies the en­tire top floor of the ho­tel. 80 square me­ters of pent­house glamour fea­tures the best views in all of Capri. Enor­mous sun-drenched ter­races and a rooftop gar­den along with a wooden deck fur­nished with so­phis­ti­cated so­fas, ta­bles and chairs pro­vide the per­fect set­ting for your in­ti­mate gath­er­ings.the dis­tinc­tive suites have jaw-drop­ping views of Capri, Mount Ve­su­vius, the Bay of Naples and of­fer ac­com­mo­da­tions fit for a king. In fact, King Farouk of Egypt has a name­sake suite here be­cause he booked it for a year at a time. The restau­rant puts Capri on your plate. With two acres of or­ganic gar­dens, the ho­tel has a phi­los­o­phy that food is sa­cred, a gift of na­ture, and that less is more in terms of prepa­ra­tion leav­ing guests to en­joy pure del­i­ca­cies. cae­sar-au­gus­tus.com
