Borgo Egnazia

Highs & Lows

  • Borgo Egnazia is a total inspiration. The hotel’s architecture is relevant and appropriate without feeling contrived. The use of mundane Apulian objects such as tea cups, wine jugs, grain, etc in the hotel’s design is also absolutely ingenious.

  • The hotel feels boutique although it is quite large and has every amenity you could ever hope for; a private beach, a championship golf course, an amazing spa, swimming pools, a boutique, and 6 restaurants!!

  • The hotel really shines at night when it becomes a magical and romantic Apulian village illuminated by warm candles.

  • I was totally shocked by the hotel’s superb service. Each room gets a dedicated butler to help make reservations around Puglia, answer any questions, or show you around the hotel. All the staff is unbelievably professional, young, attentive and beautiful to boot!

  • The food at the various hotel’s restaurants was spectacular. Think balls of fresh mozzarella at every meal

  • It was our honeymoon and although we know it can be considered kitschy we were hoping for some romantic gesture when we arrived to our room! What can I say, I am a sucker for some rose petals...
