Hotel La Palma first opened its doors in 1822, back when Capri was still a rustic community far from today's luxurious identity. At that time, only a handful of travelers came to this Mediterranean island, following in the footsteps of the Roman emperor Tiberius. All the visitors found a hospitable welcome at the simple lodge that was then called Locanda Pagano.
Two centuries later, under the ownership of the Reuben brothers, this historic hotel has been reborn as part of the Oetker Collection, which transformed the hotel into an exclusive icon of hospitality with 50 rooms and suites.
The hotel was recently renovated by the famous interior designer Francis Sultana. It is his first hotel project, and he has managed to capture the light and minimalism of Capri beautifully, adding a touch of elegance that recalls the jet-set era of the 1950s.
Experience la Dolce Vita with warm hospitality
Hotel La Palma is located just steps from the island's famous Piazzetta, and is home to restaurants, panoramic bars, a private beach club, a swimming pool, and a signature spa. All the rooms in the hotel are designed to recall the island's golden age and express the quintessence of Capri: the luxury of simplicity, the luxury of immersing yourself in the light and beauty of the coast.
