Caesar Augustus

Via G. Orlandi 4, Anacapri, Campania, 80071, Italy

A continuing favorite of the Hollywood set, this landmark has long been considered a Caprese paradise thanks to its breathtaking perch atop an Anacapri cliff. Of course, let's not forget the grandeur of its villa, gardens, terraces, and pool. As for accommodations, think chic, charming, and casual: the chairs are plump, the beds are enormous, and the bouquets are fragrant. You won't give a second's thought to decor, however, once you catch sight of the fabled stone terrace and its panorama view of the Bay of Naples or the pool—a jaw-dropping extravaganza nearly levitating 1,000 feet over the sea and easily one of the most glamorous spots on Earth. The owner is a keen gardener and delights in showing guests his English roses and 2-acre vegetable plot. Blissfully distant from Capri Town's crowds, the hotel has a private van to shuttle pampered guests back and forth. The poolside restaurant is open to nonguests, as are the hotel's lovely summer classical and jazz concerts.
