Cala Ponte Resort & Spa is a new seaside hotel near the port of Polignano a Mare in Puglia, the heel of Italy. If you are looking for a stylish place to stay by the sea with a spa and a laid-back vibe, then this lovely boutique hotel ticks all the boxes.
Sip a cocktail at the bar on the open terrace by the pool or order a light lunch before relaxing in the shade. Breakfast is a casual affair- either buffet or a la carte.
The 58 air-conditioned rooms and suites at Cala Ponte are simple but have a modern, understated elegance to them. All of them are on the first floor of the building surrounding the swimming pool and are spacious with wooden floors and soft linens.
If you are coming to Puglia to explore then we do recommend you hire a car as there are plenty of charming villages and towns to visit in the local area.
The nearest, Polignano a Mare, has one of the prettiest squares looking on to the sea and is surrounded by crystal clear waters. Take a stroll here one evening and enjoy an aperitivo in one of the cafes or bars.
Also in the area, Alberobello has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1996 and is so famous for its trulli (traditional white Apulian houses built in stone with a domed roof) that it is often featured in movies.
One of our favourite places to visit is Ostuni, also known as the White City, where all of the buildings have been painted with white lime. It is one of the most visited towns in Puglia and with its narrow streets, little boutiques and Blue Flag beaches it has earnt a reputation for being the prettiest town in the region as well as being the city with the cleanest sea in Italy.
Some people just prefer to come to Puglia to put their feet up and enjoy the sunshine, clear waters and fresh food before heading home relaxed and revitalised. Cala Ponte Resort & Spa can definitely help you re-energise: its spa has treatment rooms, ice showers, steam baths, a sauna and a relaxation area. The two outdoor swimming pools are open from May through to October and if you fancy a game of tennis but don't have a partner, the hotel can book you in with a pro on one of the floodlit courts.
