Enjoy light bites and refreshments throughout the day at the chic poolside lounge. Michelin-starred Executive Chef Alfonso Crescenzo serves traditional dishes with a contemporary twist at the hotel’s restaurant, resulting in an exciting, colourful and mouthwatering menu including parmesan-stuffed anchovies, octopus ravioli with smoked ricotta sauce, and lamb with liquorice. Ingredients are all-natural, and sourced from the surrounding region.
The rooms at Praia Art Resort are enchanting and unique. Each one has been carefully crafted using local materials including wood, terracotta tiling and wrought iron. Many of the rooms have private terraces or patios.
The hotel’s pool has plenty of loungers for basking on during sun-scorched summer days, and makes for a romantic spot for cocktails beneath the night sky’s starry canopy. Treat yourself to a pampering session in the hotel’s spa. Small and intimate, the space is designed for one person at a time, to ensure maximum privacy and comfort as you enjoy a range of relaxing treatments. It’s just a short stroll to the hotel’s private beach, where you can enjoy the soft sand and sparkling crystal waters of the Ionian sea.
Nestled in an area of outstanding beauty and ancient history, Praia Art Resort is perfect for immersing yourself in Calabrian culture. There are numerous towns and villages along the coast to explore, such as Crotone, where you’ll find fascinating traces of the Romans and Byzantines, both of whom left their marks on the town. Further afield you’ll find Rossano, famed for its liquorice, and the National Park of Sila, where you can trek through dramatic canyons and towering pine forests.
