10 Best Luxury and Boutique Hotels in Capri, Italy

From spectacular panoramic suites, to stunning spa resorts and Michelin-starred dining, these are the best luxury and boutique hotels in Capri, Italy.

Who’s dreaming of visiting Italy this year? I definitely am!

Capri is a small, Mediterranean island off the Amalfi Coast known for its gorgeous beaches, top-notch shopping, and tasty cuisine. It has inviting blue water and lots of natural beauty, so it’s no wonder several Roman emperors chose Capri as the spot to build their luxury villas!

The island is best appreciated from one of its many walking paths or by boat. I’d recommend spending a day getting lost in Capri’s small and intimate streets. There are so many gorgeous spots tucked away! For a special treat, you could look at hiring a private boat for an afternoon to explore the Grotta Azzurra (blue grotto).

Capri is a luxurious place to visit, which comes with a steep price tag. Ok, forget that, it’s wildly expensive! Many visit he island in combination with a holiday on the Amalfi Coast or a southern Italy trip. I promise it’s 100% worth it!

Be prepared to splurge on your holiday in Capri… everything from food and drink, to accommodation comes at a premium. It won’t come as a surprise that this is a popular island with celebrities too. You might even spot a few Hollywood stars while you’re there!
