Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Regina Isabella Hotel, located in the centre of Ischia Lacco Ameno, is synonymous with elegance and quality. It was built in 1950 by Angelo Rizzoli. Many celebrities have stayed here, including Charlie Chaplin, Maria Callas, Liz Taylor and Richard Burton. Nowadays, it is still a renowned establishment that attracts celebrities from the cultural, economical and political worlds, who appreciate its elegant atmosphere and its excellent service. This luxury hotel rich in tradition was completely refurbished in 2005 and today shines with a newfound radiance. The prices have also been adapted. In 2008, it was classed as one of the four best spas in the world by the Condé Nast Traveller, and in 2009 it won the Luxury Tourism Award.

    Location 9.0 /10

    The hotel is right on the seafront, surrounded by rocks and Mediterranean vegetation. It is located at the heart of the village, along the promenade which is closed to traffic in the evening. Just in front is a typical little Italian square, in the village of Lacco Ameno. The view of the bay from the guest rooms, the terrace and the swimming pool is stunning! From Naples Airport it is 6 miles to the port, then a 45-minute crossing on a fast ferry, and another 4 miles to the hotel once you arrive in Ischia.

    Accommodation 9.45 /10

    Hand-painted majolica floors and individual decoration are the main features of the classic guest rooms and suites, with a few modern touches in pastel tones. The rooms are tastefully decorated and have a magnificent view of Lacco Ameno bay. Thanks to the double door, there is very little risk of being woken up by noise at night or in the morning. There are various room categories, some of which have a Jacuzzi on the terrace.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The 1,500m² spa is one of the biggest on the island. Here you can book all kinds of treatments. Many guests come for therapeutic stays. The hotel has 128 guest rooms and is divided into three parts. The service is fantastic, with a typical Italian touch. It is a high class hotel with all the amenities.

    Food and drink 8.95 /10

    At the Regina Isabella's two restaurants you can try first class Italian cuisine based on local recipes and ingredients, with new menus every day that that combine a balanced mix of Mediterranean specialities, light dishes and freshly caught fish. The 'Sporting' restaurant (Mediterranean cuisine) has a covered terrace and a superb sea view, while the à la carte 'Regina Isabella' restaurant serves a breakfast buffet.

    Beach 8.70 /10

    It is right on the seafront with a rocky plateau and a little beach in a cove.

    To know

    The only possible complaint is that it could do with a bit of refurbishment. The corridors haven't shed their 60s style, and the thermal pool and the spa are a bit old-fashioned. The overall style is rather kitsch, but it is easy to imagine how the stars of yesterday could have appreciated its pompous aspect. The charm remains.
