The Grand Hotel Elba International is where the land meets the sea. Surrounded by lush Mediterranean flora, the Hotel dominates the Bay of Naregno.
Like a sentry facing out towards the blue horizon, each day it greets the rising sun with its retinue of colours. Easily reached from the island’s main transport hubs, it lies a few hundred metres from the hamlets of Capoliveri and Porto Azzurro. The splendid harmony of Nature is first to greet guests on their arrival. In keeping with the surrounding environment, the layout of the Hotel complex creates an encompassing, rich atmosphere, and everywhere meticulous elegance attests to the care put into making every holiday a moment of wonderful self-indulgence. The waves lap delicately on the private beach below, open only to Hotel guests and conveniently reached by lift.
Tranquillity and privacy are assured by the abundant vegetation that curtains the Grand Hotel Elba International from prying eyes. Nature’s unsurpassed beauty fills the senses with the radiance of its colours and the intensity of its aromas, while the view of the sea stretching towards the horizon bestows a unique charm on the rooms, which have panoramic terraces. Comfort and charm suffuse the rooms, while the interior décor and furnishings of the Hotel, the Health Centre and the Conference Centre all bear the hallmarks of refinement and good taste. Just as in the rooms, the beach furniture is customised and answers a specific requirement: to relieve guests of every hassle. The 131 rooms are built in eco-friendly, natural materials, into this harmonious setting, technological savvy and state-of-the-art services have been introduced, aimed at ensuring the fulfilment of guests’ requirements. All the rooms have combination safes, direct telephone lines, individually adjustable air conditioning/central heating, 28 or 32 inch LCD televisions with satellite channels including Sky, and internet access.
They’re taken by the hand on a journey of discovery of the emotions that the island’s magic invokes, and seduced by the authentic tastes of Tuscan and Mediterranean cuisine. There’s a vast range of menus to satisfy every taste and we can accommodate the needs of those on diets or with allergies, or who simply prefer to eat organic produce. For guests, adults or children who have gluten intolerance (Celiac), we carry a large and harmonious range of products appropriate to their problem. We always do it with pleasure and at no extra charge. The commitment to top quality produce is the rule of thumb in the kitchens of the Grand Hotel Elba International where the food is carefully chosen by the Hotel’s chefs, who personally supervise the patisserie. Of the two restaurants within the Hotel complex, “Le Agavi” looks out over the Bay of Porto Azzurro whilst at “Il Pirata” guests can enjoy their meals on the beach. Both restaurants lead guests on a gastronomic tour of appreciation of the delights of classic cuisine, at the same time making pleasurable forays into the traditional, local cuisine, both of Tuscany and the Mediterranean in general. Every recipe is prepared with extreme care and particular attention to the combinations of ingredients and flavours that shape the taste. The evening entertainment is an entrancing discovery.
For those who love to sip liqueurs in a relaxing atmosphere, there’s the “Narciso,” while at the “Roof” guests put themselves in the capable hands of bar staff who specialise in making cocktails, the perfect accompaniment to the breathtaking vision of the Bay of Mola, illuminated by the lights of the watercraft at anchor. The sea is just a few minutes away: the private beach, lying in the evocative Fontanella Bay, is only 80 metres from the Hotel and easily reachable by lifts with panoramic views. Or, if preferred, the beach can be reached by foot or by sea.
Those who prefer can take a dip in the sea water of the Hotel’s two swimming pools amidst the lush vegetation and splendid views of the Gulf of Porto Azzurro. Sporty types face an embarrassment of riches with a cardio-fitness gym, tennis courts, also open at night, and a multi-purpose sports field for volleyball and five-a-side football. Those who wish to discover the hidden face of the island of Elba can jump on a mountain bike, take to the sea by motorboat, yacht or kayak or put themselves in the skilled hands of a sub-aqua centre where they can admire and marvel at the world under the waves. All children under 12 years of age whose parents are in the living room were half board, half board or full board free. The Grand Hotel Elba International is the ideal place to spend a peaceful vacation with the kids, is it for the position, the tranquillity and the security of the place, is it for the large spaces dedicated for your children.
