Famed for its endless green hills, quaint whitewashed towns, and glistening blue coastline, the southern Italian region of Puglia attracts high-end holidaymakers who appreciate the finer things in life. Nature, culture, and the arts reign supreme throughout the area, as does a heavy dose of history thanks to its numerous UNESCO sites.
Furthermore, the warm Mediterranean climate makes Puglia a popular destination year-round, especially in the summer, when it comes alive with all kinds of lively celebrations and cultural events.
Guests can reach the Bari International Airport in 50 minutes and the Fasano Train Station is only 5 minutes away.
Rooms & Suites
Featuring 183 unique and traditional accommodations, Borgo Egnazia encapsulates the charm of Italy within every room. But that’s not to say it’s generic, for the alluring exterior design draws inspiration from the region’s farmhouses and villages – a modern interpretation of traditional Apulian architecture, where limestone and other local materials take centre stage.
The complex features three distinct accommodations: the cosy guestrooms of La Corte; the traditional rooms of Il Borgo; and the sophisticated villas of Le Ville, the latter of which come with their own private pools.
Pool & Facilities
Borgo Egnazia offers an array of enticing activities and facilities to ensure its guests never get bored. With a gorgeous backdrop of lush green rolling hills, the hotel’s outdoor pools are the perfect place for a refreshing dip. If you happen to visit in the colder months, then the heated indoor pool and award-winning wellness centre and spa would better suit.
Four well-maintained tennis courts, a fully-equipped games room, a boutique shopping, and a cosy cigar and reading room are some of the other enticing entertainment options. Of course, the real reason most visit the Mediterranean is for a spot of sun worshiping, which you can enjoy at the resort’s private beaches.
The highlight, however, is the world-class San Domenico Golf Course. Wedged between hundred-year-old olive plantations and with jaw-dropping views of historic Egnathia and the emerald Adriatic Sea, an 18-hole round here is among the finer pleasures in life.
Food & Drink
Gastronomy is a fundamental pillar of any Italian vacation, and the hotel’s varied and delectable Apulian cuisine does not disappoint. A team of specially trained chefs insists on sourcing only the finest local ingredients that they cook with love and dedication – either following traditional Italian recipes or adding a distinctly modern touch.
From gourmet wood-fired pizzas to delicious handmade pasta and a wide choice of seafood delicacies, the hotel’s collection of 6 exquisite establishments can cater to any taste. Each restaurant is uniquely different to ensure every kind of atmosphere is available, such as casual cafes and romantic fine dining digs.
During the warmer months, al fresco dining becomes commonplace as guests peer out over the hills with a bottle of fine wine and a plate of delectable cuisine at their side.
The outlying region features numerous attractions to explore; best enjoyed with the availability of one of the hotel’s Local Advisors. These amicable tourism experts – the hotel actually calls them ‘Local Friends’ – are on hand to help you make the most of the region, detailing in-depth information about the rich history, culture, and traditions that would otherwise go unheard. They can also plan a perfectly tailored itinerary for you.
Within the hotel and further afield, the focus at Borgo Egnazia is on providing its distinguished guests with “Nowhere Else Experiences,” creating memories to last a lifetime.
