Grand Hotel Hermitage
At the Grand Hotel Hermitage, you get standout views over the Bay of Naples. The hotel oozes old-world charm thanks to its whitewashed walls and the gardens that are bursting with fruit trees. Inside, rooms are colourful, with tiled floors and antique furniture. Some also come with a sea view.
The pool looks out over the bay and there’s a kids’ pool attached. The sundeck is packed with loungers so you can enjoy the views while you work on your tan.
The name of the hotel’s restaurant translates as ‘room of dreams’ – and thanks to the high-end cuisine and beautiful bay views, it’s hard to disagree.
