Belvedere – In keeping with Southern Italy's Mediterranean cuisine and lifestyle, Belvedere, the hotel's only restaurant, serves guests dishes of homegrown vegetables and meat and seafood that are selected daily for freshness, all paired with sommelier-suggested wines and stunning sea views.
Pool & Beachside Bars – Ideal for quick bites and carefully crafted cocktails, the pool and beachside bars provide guests with well-deserved refreshment while lounging by the water.
The Lobby Bar – Offers evening aperitifs, digestives, and other drinks surrounded by an impressive wooden bar and the lush greenery of the nearby terrace balcony — all to the accompaniment of a live pianist.

Spend your days lounging poolside or take it one step further and go for over-the-top relaxation and rejuvenation at OIL + SPA, the hotel's spa centered around thermal water treatments. Drawn from volcanic springs deep beneath Ischia, the hotel's thermal waters are mineral-rich and known for their healing properties. Take the waters at the spa before finishing off your time there with a rejuvenating massage, facial, manicure or pedicure, or experience shower, sauna, or Turkish bath.
Beyond the spa, you can work out in the fitness center, enjoy a wine tasting in the hotel's wine cellar, book a special sea and land excursion at the concierge desk, or take a cooking class led by Head Chef Libera Iovine.
Outside the hotel, avail yourself of all the sights, sounds, and smells that this Southern Italian island has to offer.
