Masseria San Domenico is an elegant luxury hotel on the beach in Savelletri in Puglia, Italy. Here at Long Travel we believe it’s the poshest Masseria in Puglia with an incredible spa which feels very exclusive.
Dating back to the 15th century, when the original watchtower was used, by the Knights of Malta, to guard against the Saracens, the Masseria San Domenico is less than a kilometre from the sea, and close to the quaint fishing village of Savelletri. Absolutely beautiful, it is set in 60 hectares of extensive grounds of ancient olive trees (some over 1,000 years old), exotic palms and landscaped gardens.
Imposing and impressive, the boutique hotel Masseria San Domenico is a very special place indeed. Privately owned, it has been furnished largely with antiques and there are lots of personal touches, which make it feel more like a home than a hotel. Sitting rooms and terraces are comfortable and welcoming, as is the bar. The restaurant, formerly the stables, has an amazing star-vaulted ceiling and an enormous open fireplace and the service is predictably impeccable. In summer, meals are often taken outside of Masseria San Domenico, on one of the terraces. The whole atmosphere is one of tranquillity and sophistication and it all feels very tasteful, stylish and luxurious.
In Masseria San Domenico’s lush green gardens is a truly splendid and unusual sea-water swimming pool, which is landscaped into the rock. There are two hardcore, floodlit tennis courts and bicycles for Long Travel clients to use. There is a truly fabulous spa, a well-equipped beauty centre, with sauna, jacuzzi, steam room, indoor heated pool and small gym, where guests can also treat themselves to a variety of treatments, massages and even seaweed therapy. At times, in summer, the tennis courts are given over to concerts (usually classical) and ballet, which guests of the Masseria San Domenico are welcome to attend.
Approximately 500m away, Masseria San Domenico’s private sandy beach is lovely and, within about 4km, is the world-famous San Domenico Golf Course. With superb views of the sea, from almost every part of it, it is much acclaimed and challenging, especially on a windy day!
It is perfect for that “special occasion” holiday or for those who like to pamper themselves.
