We booked Botanais Relais resort as part of a Travel Zoo deal for our honeymoon. We stayed there four days and nights and had a wonderful time. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and well maintained. The restaurants were also beautiful and the food was delicious. We had breakfast every day and it was always a delicious selection of pastries, meats, cheeses, egg dishes, etc. We had dinner at the main restaurant one of the nights and it was excellent. The vegetarian restaurant also looked very good, although we didn't eat there. We also did a cooking class during lunch one of the days, which was a very fun and delicious interactive experience. The staff was consistently excellent, from Giovanni and Ciro in the reception, Titti, the super friendly and knowledgeable guest experience manager, and all of the nice folks working at the restaurants- Pasquale and many others whos names I'm forgetting now. The resort is also very conveniently located, a short walk from Negombo thermal park and the town of Lacco Ameno, and a short drive from the other main towns of Forio and Ischia. Overall a great resort and a great four days on the beautiful green island!

Hotel's Favorite
From the Tripadvisor ad we didn't know what to expect, but when we arrived by taxi from the ferry dock we had our breath taken away. Botania Relais & Spa is a vast piece of property dotted with beautifully designed villa-style structures that contain the air-conditioned, well-appointed rooms. Concierge Titti who speaks perfect English was a big help with all things. A lovely walk takes you to three different restaurants, the pool, and the spa where Dorianna and Lucca pamper you with assorted physical treatments. For dining we didn't even bother to leave the property, as the main restaurant near the pool served exquisite multi-course Italian cuisine. And the breakfasts were elegant and tasty. We're going back next year. We paid the same as we paid for a crowded room with no closet in Florence. This was a bargain for the luxury, quiet, and excellence we experienced.

We spent a wonderful five days and nights at Botania, on the beautiful island of Ischia. The room was superb with a peaceful verandah overlooking the stunning grounds of the hotel. I run out of superlatives; the setting, food, pool and spa were all faultless. Above all, the staff were fantastic; knowledgeable, passionate about the island and the hotel, warm and friendly. They managed to balance total professionalism with a lovely informality that made talking to them a complete joy. I hate to single anyone out, because they were all great, but a huge thank you to Titti for her fantastic organising skills and attention to detail, Pasquale for his incredible knowledge of food and wine, he and Gerardo for their attentive waiting skills, Onofrio for running a brilliant bar, and the wonderful colleague in reception (whose name I missed) for sorting out our transfer to Naples airport so brilliantly. Not forgetting the staff of Il Mirto restaurent who dealt with the bee sting so efficiently! They, and all the staff, were so attentive and missed nothing and deserve a huge thank you!

This is a wonderful property. The rooms are cool and inviting. The service is unparalleled. The pool is relaxing and the entire property is beautiful-sort of like a secret garden. The food is also wonderful. We loved the property so much that we didn’t bother exploring the rest of the island. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We hope to return someday.

We had a wonderful stay at the Botania Relais and Spa. It is a hotel for adults and children +12 (they did make an exception for our youngest child). The grounds are absolutely beautiful and very well maintained. Rooms are very spacious and the entire staff could not be more friendly! Special shout out to Titti in activities and Onofrio at the bar. Both were super friendly and accommodating to all of our needs. The breakfast buffet was superb and the cocktails and pizzas were delicious. We did not eat at the vegetarian restaurant, but enjoyed dinner one night at the main restaurant. Food was good, not great. It’s a very peaceful setting. Highly recommend! (Only wish they also offered a treadmill in the spa fitness center. Sometimes it’s just too hot to workout outdoors!)

Faultless in every way. The moment we arrived to when we left this hotel had everything. The staff are second to none, polite ,friendly and attentive . All everyone wants is to make sure your stay is very special which in our case it exceeded all our dreams. Thank you to everyone from reception to the dining room staff and to the housekeeping staff who made our stay so relaxing. Special mention to Titti for arranging our days out and for Onofrio who gave his time to tell us all about his Ischia of which he was very proud. He makes a great Aperol Spritz and Limoncello . Rosita looked after us at the pool but nothing was too much trouble for any of staff. We would happily return in the future. The hotel has wonderful grounds to explore and is the most peaceful and calm venue we have ever stayed at. Big thanks to everyone concerned.

This is a lovely hotel. Great grounds, well located, good food and tastefully appointed. The staff were superb. Particularly helpful for excursions and offsite restaurant bookings. The only 2 areas for improvement are the gym, which was poorly equipped and had no towels or water; and the lack of signposts for reception! Highly recommended overall however.

I had such a great experience at this beautiful resort. The staff took care of all my needs starting with transportation from Naples train station. Titti, the customer relations contact was amazing. She made all our dinner reservations and got us into some of the best restaurants, even on the day of. The resort grounds are beautifully landscaped and it was such a treat to stay there after a few days in crowded Rome. I will make sure I come back!
