Capri entices for many reasons, among them its stunning natural beauty, with sheer rock faces and luminous blue waters, its top-notch shopping and swanky restaurants, befitting the most discerning of A-lister visitors, and its fabulous hotels, ranging from grand dames clinging to the hillside, dishing up old-world Italian glamour, to slick modern pads with 21st-century style. Whatever your preference, and whatever your budget, these are the best hotels in Capri.

JK Place Capri

A luxury pile on the coast, overlooking the surf, JK Place Capri is one of the most atmospheric and exclusive hotels in Capri. Float through a lobby lined in sculpted columns; stretch out by the lounger-lined pool; bed down in sultry rooms with views to the Gulf of Naples – whatever you do, you’ll feel like a film star at every moment. The indulgences aren’t just about the surroundings, either – 24-hour room service, minibar treats and a lavish daily breakfast are all included.

Hotel Punta Tragara

High above the sea, overlooking the Faraglioni rock formations, Hotel Punta Tragara has been oozing classic romance since it was built in the 1920s. It’s the top pick for couples looking to have a sumptuous time of it on Capri, from the crisp white tablecloths of Le Monzù Restaurant, where waiters dish up sublime seafood, to the duo of swimming pools, one freshwater, one heated with whirlpool jets. The penthouse suite, with its sweeping terrace, is the crowning glory.

Orsa Maggiore

The pool alone is worth checking into this Capril hotel – for a slick of infinity blue, with views over lush Capri greenery and an idyllic coastline. You’ll want to spend all your days here, drifting about the mirrored expanse, flopping down to sip icy glasses of local wine, but make sure you save time for the other hotel perks. There’s a free shuttle service to and from the port, so you can go exploring, and spa treatments are on tap. The rooms? There are just 14, all with sea views and private terraces.

Caesar Augustus

From the home-baked bread at breakfast to the fine-dining La Terrazza di Lucullo, sending out ribbony pasta and freshly caught seafood, good eating is guaranteed at Caesar Augustus. But while that might be the main attraction, you’ll find plenty more to love, including the serene rooftop infinity pool, boutique spa and expert-led tours to Capri beauty spots such as the Blue Grotto. Back in your classical luxe room, sip bubbly on your sea-facing terrace.

Luna

The allure of Capri extends beyond its epic scenery, as the stylish shop and restaurant scene draws a well-heeled set – and at Luna, steps from the Piazzetta, you are right in the thick of it. Rooms, in a palette of cream and sand, are soothing retreats when you’ve had your fill of the buzzy scene, while the sea-facing terrace is a serene spot for evening sundowners. Have a long, lazy lunch on your poolside lounger, working on the tan between forkfuls of Caprese salad.

Capri Palace

Panoramic views of the Naples Gulf, a two-Michelin-starred restaurant, a world-class spa: the Capri Palace ticks every box on your wish list. It’s stylish, too, with bedrooms in crisp, contemporary whites and sea blues and a jaw-dropping pool edged with trees and drenched in sun. Enjoy a drink as the sounds of live piano music drift on the breeze, dine decadently on lobster as the sky softens to cocktail shades or take an early-morning yoga class in view of the waves.

Hotel Villa Brunella

With such panoramic photo ops down over Marina Piccola, you’ll be recharging your iPhone often at Hotel Villa Brunella in Capri. That scene simply steals the limelight, whether you’re lazing on a lounger, having dinner à deux or reclining in your decadent suite. All around the hotel, the classic stylings evoke powerful recollections of the Capri of days gone by, from the glass-tasselled lampshades to the wafting palm fronds.

Gatto Bianco Hotel and Spa

Craving a spa break? Consider a few days at Gatto Bianco, where you can spend mornings sweating it out in a sauna or Turkish bath, and afternoons relaxing with restorative facials. After the pampering you can head out to explore – you’re well placed here for the sights, shops and restaurants – or chill in your classically styled room, sedate with atmospheric sea-blue and green hues, and blessed with a private garden terrace. Don’t forget to say hello to the on-site cat.
