We have travelled extensively in Italy over the past few years but never encountered a place as beautiful as this. The bespoke luxury retreat is peaceful and tranquil throughout. Two things stand out - the kindness and professionalism of the staff and the aesthetics of the resort. Our room was surrounded by fruit trees and was a haven of peace. Thank you so much Praia for Giving us such a memorable holiday - we shall be back soon!

The resort is located in Praialonga, a secluded holiday village in one of the best spots of Gulf of Squillace. With a sustainable approach in both materials and food, the resort promotes south Italian culture thru an outstanding choice of local design and regional ingredients. Ideal to relax and taste unique recipes in the starred Michelin restaurant. The sea is Cristal clear and the staff always available and friendly … the Italian style…. Cannot be missed

Praia Art Resort is a glorious property. It is a love letter to Calabria and the rich heritage of the region. The beach is stunning. The staff is excellent and friendly. The food is not to be missed. The grounds are lush and abundant with local treasures (olives, grapes, fig tress). The surrounding area offers much to see in an area of Italy that is often overlooked. We will return to Praia Art Resort without question.

The Praia Art Resort has many factors going for it. It is a beautifully designed hotel featuring and celebrating local materials, art and food. It has a gorgeous, incredibly clean, private beach, with sunbeds and umbrella for guests, as part of the nightly room fee. The pool, situated adjacent to hundred-year-old olive trees, next to the casual restaurant, is large enough for lap swimming and mostly unused. (We spent one morning lounging in the shade next to the pool, soaking up the relaxation). Our room, which is featured on some of the hotel's promo literature, was perfect - comfortable bed, large sitting area, a jet tub in the sitting area, large covered outdoor terrace, great A/C (it was a heatwave when we were there, so this was extremely welcome). The shower was a tad problematic - hard to get cool water coming out of it, so the "cool down" part of the shower was non-existent, sadly given the extremely high outside temperature. It seemed they were training a bunch of new staff when we were there. Everyone was extremely good-natured, though, and was trying hard, so we give lots of points for that. We especially loved Valentina, at the casual restaurant. She is clearly a veteran, very skilled and professional and also very friendly and funny. She seemed to be training some of the newer employees, so under her guidance, things should be running very smoothly in no time at all. Keep up the good work!! A word about the Michelin-starred restaurant, Pietramare Natural Food. The staff was lovely. The presentation was wonderful. All the aesthetic elements were there. We just didn't like the food, sadly. Among other things, every dish other than the dessert was extremely salty. We will chalk it up to an off night, as clearly others like the food and it does have its Michelin star. We would be thrilled to stay at this lovely resort again if/when we are in the area again.

We had a really bad experience with this hotel / no food options extremely expensive which was not a problem if the services and the food was 5 stars / this is not Saint Tropez / staff not trained / everything we asked was a big NO / poor breakfast / raw eggs / dinner just in the Michelin states restaurant / you will be hungry there / the only good thing was the room nice and clean housekeeping doing a great job / but restaurant and reception is a nightmare save yourself the money and time and go in a proper 5star hotel this is a joke/ my opinion/

The resort is absolutely lovely, with beautifully designed rooms, hospitable front desk staff, a gorgeous private beach/pool and one of the finest Michelin star restaurants in Calabria! Our room is quite large, with bountiful storage, a large bathroom, a gorgeous view of the Sea, as well as a large outdoor terrace with tub! We were lucky enough to meet the owner, who is a delightful gentleman, planning more hotels in Rome and Milan. He cares about quality, and has surrounded himself with friendly experienced staff, and is striving to put Calabria on the map.

We have spent a couple of days at Praia. The beach is very nice and quiet and the 1 star Michelin restaurant is itself worth the trip. It’s a pity that the hotel is inside an old and little creepy touristic village.

A refined oasis of tranquility. The place is only suitable for people who are looking for rest away from traffic and crowds: daytime and night time rest are ensured. The suite numer 119 is on the first floor with a magnificent view of the pine forest and the sea. Entering the suite you can smell the very pleasant essences of an emanator. The suite has minimal furniture, wide space, about 43 square meters a functional bathroom, with a large marble sink. The wardrobe is adequate. Missing shoehorn. Room cleaning excellent and high quality linen and towels; in addition to the bathrobe, there are flip-flops. Personally I prefer the more comfortable slippers. The floors are concrete and wood, on the terrace there is a large bathtub. At night the double curtains of the terrace window guarantee perfect darkness for sleeping; the curtains on the two side windows do not completely block out the light, it would be better to replace them. There are 2 restaurants, one with a Michelin star. The staff is prepared and very kind. Near the midday restaurant, where we had breakfast and dinner, there is a nice pool and bar service. Along the pool, there are three hundred year old olive trees. Breakfast is varied but can be improved in the offer. Excellent local cured ham to order and a wide variety of local cheeses. At noon the restaurant by the sea offers excellent salads of various kinds and the catch of the day. In my opinion the best dish is a kind of three-layer sandwich with fish of the day, melted scamorza cheese and potatoes: excellent and original. A path crosses the resort and through the pine forest, leads to the sea. On the beach there is a lifeguard service: each guest is entitled to a daily towel service, an umbrella and 2 deck chairs. The sand of the resort's beach is kept perfectly clean. There is so much green, typical of the Mediterranean vegetation of southern Italy,and during the hot days the silence is broken by the chirping of cicadas. Strangely, but fortunately, there is an absence of flies and mosquitoes. It is difficult to find such a pleasant place in Calabria.

Although it has the potential, facilities and there are redeeming features it has a long way to go in terms of service and overall quality. Negatives - The hotel is situated in amongst a busy Italian holiday resort not a tranquil setting - No clear signage to reception resulting in getting lost upon arrival - if you are walking from the pool back to reception it is signposted but why would you be approaching from that side first time? - There are insufficient parking spaces provided: ~6 spaces for many more rooms so it’s a total lottery where you park outside - In all of the newest block of rooms the showers flood meaning you need to use towels to trap yourself into the cubicle to make it watertight. It took over a day before any member of staff was honest about this and admitted the problem stems back to the architects - Restaurant service is highly inconsistent at the bistro with lots of mistakes being made including: ham cooked in a vegetarian omelette; pots of tea with no tea bag; drinks arriving with a 15 minute delay; staff completely ignoring you and clearing other tables whilst you and many others are waiting for service; 2 salt and pepper sellers for 20 tables; inconsistent process for signing the bill at the table or walking to the bar; food supplies at breakfast such as pastries and fruit running out over and hour before the end of breakfast and not being replenished - On the first night the beachside restaurant was open but only offered fish or meat grill. They offered no vegetarian options and the bistro was shut meaning either don’t eat, leave the hotel or visit the Michelin star restaurant and foot the bill - Settling the bill was challenging due to language barriers. The hotel was unable to provide change when paying in Euro notes. Additionally, when checking if breakfast would be available for a 07.15 departure we were informed that it doesn’t start until 07.30. No alternative arrangements were offered. Positives - The staff are very friendly - Complimentary upgrade on arrival (undisclosed initially) - The room was clean, modern and stylish with an outside seating area and bath as well as modern Bluetooth speakers to stream your own music - Molton Brown toiletries replaced most days - The bistro food is nice (when it turns up) especially the evening meal, desert and cocktails - The beach is a big positive. Large enough to accommodate guests, free loungers, parasols and towels, very close to the bistro/pool and with hammocks in the sea. - The pool/bar/bistro area is very attractive This has been a disappointing stay given the gap between genuine 5* quality and what is offered and we have not received value for money relative to what we might have received elsewhere even in a 4* hotel. There have been moments where this hotel deserved a 3 or 4 rating but due to the overall experience and inconsistency we feel that is has genuinely earned a 2. Finally, there is just no effort to go the extra mile as you would expect in other hotels boasting 5* status.
