The List of the American Condé Nast Traveler
This year Italy entered the list of the American Condé Nast Traveler and, just to have an idea of the dimension of this choice, the hotels appear next to the notorious Ritz, from Paris. See also: Accommodation in Italy! Well, the best Italian hotels on the list are: MASSERIA TORRE COCCARO, which came in first place, and BELMOND GRAND HOTEL TIMEO, which came in eighth. The first is in Brindisi (Apuglia) and the second in Taormina, both in Sicily, southern Italy. Southern Italy is wonderful!
1) The best hotels in the world are in Italy! MASSERIA TORRE COCCARO
Let’s talk about Masseria Torre Coccaro that won First Place. With an excellent location, the hotel is indeed extraordinary! It was defined by the editors of CN Traveler as a jewel of hospitality. Its white walls on the outside, very similar to those of the buildings present in the Greek Islands, are magnets for our eyes and make everything much more beautiful, both in daylight and at nightfall. In the best “cave” style, some common areas of the hotel, such as restaurant, bar and games room, are well decorated, elegant and pleasant, inviting us to spend hours there. Another highlight is the hotel’s chapel, which is spectacular!
The rooms are spacious, cozy, clean and full of privacy, still following the idea of the caves, some bathrooms are rustic, but always maintaining the luxury that the hotel offers to the guest. Another highlight is the suites: many of them have a private pool and a small garden. The hotel also offers guests a SPA with various services such as massages, special baths and a sauna. The restaurant is a spectacle apart! With an impeccable wine list, the space is beautiful and the menu is exclusive! The hotel also has a swimming pool full of charm, private beach, bars, cooking classes, Enoteca, golf course and convention center. The daily rate? From EUR 304 to EUR 1.635,00 depending on the season, availability and the type of room you choose. Oh, another thing: making a reservation is almost an impossible mission, so if you can, make your reservation well in advance!
