About the location

Discover the beauty and legends of Ischia, a stunning Italian island located just off the coast of Naples. Renowned for its thermal springs that are said to have healing properties, Ischia is also known as the Green Island for its lush green parks and captivating panoramic views that make it an ideal retreat for your luxury island holiday.

Nestled along the western coast of Ischia, just a 15-minute drive from the town of Forio, is the Botania Resort & Spa. This sprawling property exudes elegance and Mediterranean character, offering easy access to the seaside town of Lacco Ameno, which can be reached by a short ten-minute walk down some steps. This charming harbour town boasts restaurants, shops, luxury spas, and Greek ruins.

Ischia's thermal springs can be enjoyed in public baths or found trickling naturally across the island's beautiful landscapes. For a truly relaxing experience, head to Negombo Thermal Park, just 350 metres from Botania Resort & Spa, where you can unwind on white sands in a tropical setting and benefit from the thermal springs. Or visit the Poseidon Gardens, Europe's largest thermal springs park.

With sweeping forested mountains, sandy beaches, and the dormant Ischia Volcano at its heart, Ischia offers endless opportunities for adventure and exploration. Take the 16-mile round hike to Mount Epomeo, the island's highest mountain, or visit the natural rock spa of Cava Scura, overlooking Ischia's largest beach, Spiaggia di Maronti.

One of Ischia's most impressive attractions is Castello Aragonese, a medieval castle perched on volcanic rock and connected to the island by a bridge. This grand setting is also home to the annual Ischia Film Festival, which attracts film stars and celebrities from across the globe.

Ischia is equally famed for its ancient artisanal and culinary traditions. During your stay, we encourage you to indulge in the local specialties, including grilled swordfish and Ischia's signature dish of braised rabbit, available in many of the island's eateries.

If you wish to venture further afield, the glittering coastline of the Amalfi Coast, the island of Capri, and the ancient city of Pompeii in Naples are all within reach. And at the end of each day, return to the luxurious, adults-only Botania Relais & Spa, just a 30-minute drive from Ischia's port and a two-hour transfer (via hydrofoil) from Naples airport.

Experience the best of Ischia on your next luxury holiday.
