Capri Palace Jumeirah
History & Story
In August 1960, the Capri Palace was built at the foot of Mount Solaro, with its magnificent views over the Gulf of Naples and Ischia Island. Back then, it was owned and managed by the Cacace family as 4-star hotel, and its name was Europe Palace. In those years, the town of Anacapri lived in the shadow of the more famous Town of Capri, but the new property of the Cacace family helped to start change this paradigm.
When his father Mario passed away, Tonino Cacace inherited the family business at a very young age and dramatically transformed the Hotel, making it a true Mecca for discerning travellers and famous personalities from the worlds of the arts, business, and entertainment.
Year after year, the 110 rooms of the original structure were progressively reduced in favour of suites with larger bathrooms. In the 80’s, a new type of room with private pools was launched, while in the 90’s the Capri Medical Spa was inaugurated. Now called Capri Medical Spa, this was in fact the first Medical Spa in Europe. It quickly rose international fame and it was many times awarded as best spa destination, specializing in both beauty and medical services, such as the famous «Leg School», a special treatment created and patented by Medical Director, Professor Francesco Canonaco.
In 2001, after a major restyling that strictly respected the classic Mediterranean design of the building and which gave the Hotel the appearance of a noble palace, the Hotel became part of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World group. The new architectural design was characterized by stone floors, vaulted ceilings and round columns and arches of the common areas, as well by the travertine baths, the warm tones of the fabrics and the sumptuous décor of each room. Everything was presented with an understated elegance that combined with the feeling of the deliciously warm welcome given by the hotel’s staff. Reminiscent of the most beautiful Roman coastal villas, some of the rooms overlook an internal garden with a private swimming pool.
Since 2014, an entire wing of the Capri Palace hotel is dedicated to the Capritouch style, our personal homage to the timeless handcrafted tradition of the Island of Capri. The Capritouch suites masterfully expresses this local vibe: simple but elegant. Here, everything is perfectly set in its most appropriate context and aims to enhance the Mediterranean colours and architectures. These suites are “dressed” in high-quality cotton and linen, and the white, blue, sand or dove-grey majolica tiles give a precise Mediterranean identity and feel to the ambiance. Capritouch is a project involving different fields: fashion, crafts, furniture, art and architecture. It represents the highest quality of Italian craftsmanship, boasting only Italian hand-made products.
Courtesy, warmth, elegance, and professionalism: for more than half a century, these have been the key ingredients of our hotel. They are part of a single approach, handed down from father to son, to the art of hospitality – an authentic art, created by people, emotions and deeply held values.
In 2019, Capri Palace became part of the prestigious Jumeirah Group, thus enhancing and amplifying once more its decades-long vision for a new kind of hospitality, made of exceptional and memorable experiences, spanning from our fine dining offer to our world-class spa services, to our thought-provoking perspective over art and design.
