This is not an easy hotel to find. If we weren't with friends from Bari (who obviously spoke Italian), we would have never found the hotel by ourselves. We had the Cattedrale suite (no view) which was very comfortable for my husband, 2 sons, and me; highly recommend this room for a family of 3-4. The beds were comfortable, Frette... More

This resort is nice, in a quaint town. Pictures make it look a lot better. Service was terrible and ruined the entire experience. We felt very unwelcome and uncomfortable throughout the stay. We stayed in several hotels during our 2 week stay in Italy and this hotel was the most expensive and worst service. It is very sad, because the... More

Spent three nights here on our first leg of our Puglian tour! We were greeted by a warm welcome from reception staff, and taken to our room. The accommodation provided ultimate comfort in both communal and private areas, and nicely decorated, mostly in a monochromatic, neutral palette. Breakfast is in plentiful supply of local delicacies, also eggs freshly cooked in... More

This is a beautiful hotel located in the most beautiful part of Ostuni. It is certainly falls in the "Old World" category as even a current-day, regular sized car is too big to be brought up to the front of the hotel. Be aware that you will have to call the hotel in advance to have them send down their... More

We booked two rooms for a one night visit on our way further south. Very modern, minimalist but well designed. Perfect location within the city. One issue we had was the aircon in room 12 didn't work and the room really felt like an oven, management provided a complimentary bottle of chilled wine but unfortunately they were fully booked and...

As we approached La Sommita by taxi, we climbed through ever narrower, ever steeper streets until we thought we could climb no more. And we couldn't. After rounding the cathedral, we had to proceed the last hundred feet or so on foot as the lanes became that much narrower. And the climb was more than worth it. This 15-room, boutique... More

Wow, the service is outstanding. My sister in law just had a wedding there and the staff went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for all the guest staying there.

We were ambling happily in Trulli- country when we settled into exploring the White City. White certainly does not goes out of fashion,as this town exemplifies ..... purity,innocence and gob-smacking beauty. Ostuni , built on the crown of a hill girth'd by olive trees and close-standing houses,lime- washed in shining white, which from a distance looks like an outsize egg-white... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relais La Sommita' is a mansion of 16th century and represents the diamond at the top of the historical centre of Ostuni, with 15 elegant rooms divided in Deluxe, Deluxe View, Suite and one Master Suite.This is a retreat, a shelter, a moment of quiet in an over stimulated life, an environment that meant to envelop rather than impress.The interiors walk the line between an ascetic minimalism and a stylish luxury, in a palette of creams and off-whites, with the sort of quiet and solid furnishings that are the signifiers of high-end modern interior design. Stone walls, natural textile, wood are the materials that characterize the interiors of Relais La Sommità. The bathrooms are always characterized by the same minimalist style of wood, marble, stone, archway and Culti brands products and Bulgari for the Suites. ... more   less
