This family-run countryside property is a prefect retreat for those seeking the authentic Puglia, easy access to nearby beaches, and a welcoming boutique charm.
Borgo Egnazia is renowned throughout Puglia as one of the top hotels in the region, and it holds this illustrious reputation with good reason. The property has managed to achieve an excellent selection of activities and facilities which cater to all ages and interests, while also maintaining a peaceful ambiance throughout the grounds which allows for total relaxation and escape. Even with 185 rooms, Borgo Egnazia manages to maintain the intimate feel of a small Pugliese village with the help of a well-planned layout and the exceptional staff and service. Each room even has a member of staff assigned to it specifically, so guests feel like they have their own personal concierge.
Rooms are located in two areas of the hotel – the Borgo, constructed to resemble a small village complete with main square, and Il Corte, the main building. Beyond these central areas, 28 exclusive private villas cater to those seeking the utmost luxury. All rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated with plush furnishings and calming neutral hues. However with the plethora of activities available, it’s unlikely that guests will spend much time in the room at all. Four pools offer plenty of options for a swim, and the private sandy beach is just a short shuttle ride away. There are a number of activities that cater specifically to children and families as well as a golf course, tennis, water sports, cooking classes and a spectacular spa.
