Jumeirah Group Capri Palace Italy

Jumeirah Group adds Capri Palace to its international portfolio

Jumeirah Group has announced it has been appointed to operate and manage the renowned Capri Palace in Italy.

Reopening as Capri Palace, Jumeirah in April 2020, this Italian property enjoys an idyllic location in bustling Anacapri, one of the most exclusive and unspoiled parts of the island. The hotel, founded by Tonino Cacace, stands high up on a hill overlooking the Gulf of Naples and fully embodies the Italian Dolce Vita, with an authentic Capri style and far reaching sea views.

Designed in the style of an eighteenth-century Neapolitan palazzo, Capri Palace has attracted the great and the good since it first opened its doors in the 1960s, establishing itself as the island's most iconic hotel. Under Jumeirah's direction, the property is set to undergo upgrades and refurbishments.

The property boasts 68 guest rooms. White, blue and neutral tones create a Mediterranean atmosphere, whilst the ceramic tiles and bespoke furniture evoke the sense of an Italian family home, ensuring guests are well rooted in their surroundings.

The property is home to three of the island's Michelin stars. The hotel's signature restaurant L'Olivo, which serves Mediterranean classics with an extensive wine list, has been awarded two stars; whilst Il Riccio – the hotel's private beach club – has one, and is the only beach club in the world to do so. Il Riccio, which clings to the rocky coastline, is known for providing some of the best local seafood on the island, especially their sea urchins from which the restaurant takes its name.

Capri Beauty Farm, under the direction of the esteemed Professor Francesco Canonaco, offers highly specialised signature treatments including the 'Leg School' and the 'Metabolic Response'.

José Silva, chief executive officer of Jumeirah Group, said: “We are proud and excited to welcome Capri Palace, Jumeirah into our portfolio. It is one of Europe's most recognised and well-respected hotels, with a global reputation and following. We are pleased to announce that the hotel's current General Manager Ermanno Zanini will continue in his role, taking on additional responsibilities as Regional Vice President for Italy and Spain for Jumeirah Group. Capri Palace, Jumeirah embodies our brand values of providing excellent service, unrivalled culinary experiences and inspiring design, and joins our existing collection of European properties in London, Mallorca and Frankfurt.”

Ermanno Zanini, general manager of Capri Palace, Jumeirah and regional vice president for Italy and Spain, said: "We are delighted that Jumeirah Group have embraced Capri Palace to be a part of its portfolio. With the warmth of our team, the big smiles and the even bigger hearts, we look forward to build on greatness and reach new frontiers as part of this renowned global luxury hospitality company.”

Capri Palace, Jumeirah will open for the 2020 season on April 23, 2020, bringing the existing Jumeirah international portfolio to six hotels in Europe.
