The Hotel Caesar Augustus is one of the great resort hotels in the world. Perched 1000 ft up on the cliff of Anacapri, the hotel is magical on a grand scale. The cliff sea view room (#118) was worth every penny at 980Eu/nite. It has magnificent furnishings and a big terrace, with incredible views of the blue sea, Ischia, Naples, Vesuvius, the Sorrentine Peninsula, and Capri harbor. The June weather was perfect, the sunsets magnificent and, at night, the lights of the mainland from Naples all the way to Amalfi surround you in a 180 degree arc, with the blackness of Vesuvius lurking behind.
The heated two-tier infinity pool is gorgeous (like no other I have ever seen) and the grounds are spectacular (from the many terraces with lounges to the vegetable gardens to the path along the cliff). The steam room, around a secluded corner just below the pool, has a window that overlooks the garden and the sea! Augustus himself did not have it so good. There are so many public terraces and secluded spots throughout the property that it would take a week to enjoy them all.
It is a very short walk to Anacapri, which (unlike the town of Capri) is uncrowded with good local shopping and cafes at prices that are fair. The drive down to the town of Capri (and back up) in one of the topless taxis is a switchbacked joy ride. The town of Capri itself is mostly the Via Condotti in an overcrowded medieval town, though once you get out of the main shopping streets, it has beauty and charm.
The restaurant at the hotel has great food, good service and a great wine list (with great wine at fair prices), and yet more incredible views. The outside tables perched over the cliff look inviting (and are), but on a breezy June night we were happy to be on the restaurant sde of the glass.
Stay at least two nights with someone you love.
