Capri Palace Hotel & Spa
is an Italian nomination for a Readers' Choice Award for Best International Spa Retreat, located on the island of Capri in the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Capri Palace, located in the exclusive Anacapri area, was built by the father of current owner and manager Tonino Cacace and recently underwent renovations to create a classic palazzo caprese and update its extraordinary amenities. Capri Palace boasts an art gallery, Capri's only restaurant with two Michelin stars (L'Olivo), a wine cellar of over 1,000 labels and 12,000 bottles, a heated outdoor pool with a view of the ocean, 50-65 foot yachts for excursions and a serviceable heliport -- all in addition to being home to the world-famous Capri Beauty Farm.
The Capri Beauty Farm offers results-oriented programs like The Leg School, for enhancing the appearance and health of the legs and "making them feel lighter." The Leg School includes a session on The Power Plate, which vibrates to tone your legs (sounds stimulating), a lymphatic drainage massage, pressing therapy, gymnastics in a thalassotherapeutic pool, and options like mud treatments, medicated bandaging and "Kneipp" vascular treatments (where they stick you in hot or cold water).
The Heart School incorporates massages and ecological walks, as well as medical procedures, into improving cardiovascular health and the Metabolic Response program diagnoses and treats metabolism issues to promote weight loss and optimum physical health. As one might expect, doctors, dieticians and cardiovascular specialists are on-hand to ensure your cutting-edge relaxation and regeneration are monitored with the latest western medical technology at the ready.
The Capri Beauty Farm also has a full range of innovative and rejuvenating treatments for the body and face, and any other part of you which needs attention -- if you're not sure, just ask them for the full range of Diagnostics. They can administer any number of diagnostic tests from blood tests and electrocardiograms to an anti-age test to determine your biological age and a food intolerance test to see if you are unknowingly suffering detrimental effects from something you're eating.
This high-tech, cosmopolitan destination also places tremendous importance on diet, and incorporates personalized plans into all packages with an emphasis on Mediterranean cuisine. You'll emerge from the Capri Beauty Farm eating well and looking and feeling renewed -- and ready to call your helicopter.
