HOTEL CHECK ITALY, part 5, Caesar Augustus, Capri


VIEWS FOREVER.

The views from Caesar Augustus are truly incredible and belong right up there with the best we have seen anywhere on our travels. Perched literally on the cliff edge (this is not a place for those with vertigo!) overlooking the shimmering ocean and picturesque Capri harbour, you can spend your days, evenings and even nights just mesmerized by the beauty.

A spacious terrace and outdoor restaurant face the sunset. And with hidden garden paths along the cliff edge, there is always a great spot for you to watch it sink in to the sea. 


Sunsets blaze your mind

Caesar Augustus lies in Anacapri (see also previous blog).


Accommodation

The 55 rooms are rather small but cosy and well presented. All have terrace or balcony. We suggest at the very least a deluxe sea view room. But for utmost delight go for a junior suite cliff seaview. We didn’t stay in one of these but having seen this room need to return just to have that dizzy and delightful experience. They perch on the cliff themselves with the balconies hanging out over the edge. For any room category do request the best view possible – for that is what Caesar Augustus is all about.

Facilities

The infinity pool looks over the ocean and is heated in colder months. There is a small gym and Turkish bath and spa treatments can be done in the gardens/room.



The terrace is main feature of the hotel and receives afternoon and evening sun (as do the vast majority of the sea view balconies) and is an ideal spot for an afternoon and evening drink.

Sundowners


The restaurant receives much acclaim. The location overlooking the ocean is superb and the tables are nestled in the gardens – very romantic but you would be disappointed if you went early/late season when the weather meant you need to eat inside.
Service is excellent.



How to get to Caesar Augustus

2 hr 30 min by car and boat from Naples International Airport. Hotel shuttles from the port are available for all pick-ups and drop offs but must be booked in advance. Do book all your transfers between airport and port too.





Who should stay

NO CHILDREN UNDER 10 ALLOWED (balconies can be considered dangerous even for older kids). Best for couples and those who enjoy totally amazing views and dizzy heights.

Sparkling infinity & peace
