Arrival experience

When you arrive at the gates of Borgo Egnazia, you are asked to identify yourself before entering. Once admitted, a valet awaits, and your car is taken to be parked while your luggage is brought into the hotel. The hotel entrance is very striking; a long corridor with little alcoves leads to the main reception area.

Everything around is cream in colour. Lanterns with candles and big baskets of local, dried flowers adorn the main hallway, focusing on a pretty tree at the end of the corridor whose leaves are made from the pages of a book, shaped into conicals and lit with fairy lights. It’s magical.

Rooms and suites

Vanilla is the operative word in the rooms where everything is decorated in cream and white with taupe cushion covers, curtains, bed heads and furnishings. Rooms are modern with contemporary art touches made from local antiques, including bunches of old keys hung from the ceiling, framed pages out of local books, old lanterns hung as wall decorations, and lots of very special little touches to remind you that you are in farm country.

Although I got lost almost every time I tried to find my room, it was very well-appointed for a lead-in category camera. There is a large cupboard, with plenty of hanging and drawer space in case you plan to stay a while. Other than the super king-sized bed, banquette seating area, desk with chair and another long cupboard that houses the minibar, TV and more drawer space, the room offers a tiny balcony with a chair and table.

The technology in the room is functional, with multi-system sockets located near the TV which is not at all convenient if you plan on using the desk to work. And remember: Italian plugs are different from other European ones (the pins are thinner). There were plenty of sockets in the room. Lights were controlled easily and individually and can be turned off with one flick when leaving the room. English language TV channels are limited to news programs, but the WiFi is complimentary and fast so you should be able to watch Netflix online in a pinch if you’re even just a little bit techno-savvy.

The bathroom

The bathroom is very spacious and made from a local cream coloured stone. It has a large tub with a shower head, double vanity with raised square sinks and storage space underneath, a separate loo with bidet, and a separate shower with a rainfall showerhead.

Amenities are all by Balsamo, in 64 ml bottles.

Dining

I saw the hotel in low season so it is hard to imagine the vibe there must be when everything spills out onto the terraces. The main breakfast room has a large outside terrace under billowing white canopies.

Breakfast at Due Camini, is a large buffet of delicious cold meats and cheeses, yoghurts, fruit, cereals, lovely pastries, toast and you can order hot food as well. The service was quick and efficient, and while I chose to sit outside, I was attended to swiftly. The coffee was sublime, as expected.

Other restaurant options

I had lunch at the golf club which was lovely, and dinner at their sister hotel, Masseria Cimino, prepared by a local chef which was a nice way to experience the regional fare. There are eight restaurants to choose from, and the variety is perfect especially if you are there for a long holiday.

Spa and wellness

The VAIR Spas, based on an old Roman bath house, is lit with a myriad of candles to create an atmosphere. It uses Italian products made from natural sources of the region.

Pool and beach

You can either walk or take the buggy down to the beach club, Cala Masciola, where they have the water sports centre and cabanas. There is no sandy beach, and so the beach club stands on rocks and grass, where they have a large wooden raised terrace with a restaurant and plenty of sunbeds all around.

The hotel has four pools. One heated indoor pool and three outdoor pools, all unheated. Two are for adults only and are stacked one above the other outside the Corte. One is a family pool area by the l’Angoletto bar, a bit further from the main building, where children are allowed. The pools are beautiful, all large and very inviting.

Staff and service

From the bellman and valet to the front office manager and restaurant servers, everyone was extremely polite, helpful and friendly and made me feel very welcome. The bar staff were professional and experienced and remembered what I had ordered the night before.

Departure experience

The checkout was very quick and efficient. There were two staff on the front desk, and both were very helpful and asked if I needed directions to where I was headed next.

Guest profile

A mixture of European couples, families and groups of golfers. It is clearly a popular meeting place for locals as well.
