PRAIA ART RESORT
PRAIA ART RESORT is tucked away at the edge of the Capo Rizzuto marine reserve along the Ionian coast in Calabria. The perfect getaway for those who want to experience the personalized service of a luxury resort but without the tourist trappings, it casts its spell almost immediately. Located just minutes from the beach, Praia Art Resort offers guests the unique opportunity to explore not only the bays, inlets, and headlands that make up the surrounding coastal environment but also the nearby mountains, quaint villages, ancient castles, and Grecian ruins. The staff excels at creating an experience that is welcoming but discreet, attentive but never intrusive. Even the small resort spa is personalized, set in an environment designed to accommodate the needs of one guest at a time with massage and body treatments that address everything from tight muscles to cellulite to lymph drainage.
Clearly, the resort is designed to be your home away from home in whatever way you chose, whether that is to spend the day swaying in a beachside hammock with a book, lounging with a drink by the pool, or engaging your fellow guests in a lively chat about your travels. Each of the fifteen rooms has been individually styled with furnishings, accessories, and artwork crafted from wood, terracotta, and wrought iron, all masterfully rendered by local artisans. Patios and balconies, as well as free Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions, and mini-bars, are also standard. Upgraded rooms have sea views or direct access to the pool, and the suites feature whirlpool baths and Nespresso machines. The culinary offerings at Pietramare restaurant are likewise designed to ensure that guests experience the best of local and international cuisine in an intimate and immersive environment. Seasonal ingredients brought together with flair and imagination result in meals that are nothing short of a delight to all the senses, beautifully plated and perfectly delicious.
