The Marenea Suite Hotel stands on the eastern Salento coast, close to the ancient and enchanting small town of Castro, on one of the most beautiful panoramic cliffs in Apulia. It is an ideal destination for a fun and relaxing seaside holiday, but also for discovering the area’s fascinating history and traditions.
The 5-star Hotel is just 300 m from the stunning Acquaviva cove, 4 km from the Aragonese Castle of Castro and the enchanting Zinzulusa caves, 5 km from the thermal springs of Santa Cesarea, about 25 km from Leuca and Otranto, less than 50 km from Lecce and Gallipoli and about 100 km from Brindisi airport.
Surrounded by olive trees and terraced dry-stone walls and set in the green woods of the nature park of Marina di Marittima, the Marenea Suite Hotel enjoys a splendid sea view from the terraces of its suites, the swimming pools and the restaurant, overlooking a spectacular rugged coastline interspersed with small coves.
All rooms have an independent entrance with furnished patio and are grouped in blocks set between the lush Mediterranean vegetation and the sea. They are all located on the mezzanine floor and are accessible via a few steps. All rooms have ensuite bathroom, mostly with walk-in shower, while a few have a bathtub (one Suite and three Deluxe Suites).
The hotel commands a panoramic position on the coast of Acquaviva. Down from the hotel, just 300 m to the left is Cala Acquaviva, an enchanting narrow cove with freshwater springs.
To the right, also at about 300 m from the hotel, there is a seaside concession, the Lido Fiori di Zagara (open from 15/06 to 15/09). The lido is equipped with wooden platforms on the rocky coast, plus umbrellas and sunbeds on the lawn, between the pine forest and the sea (due to the layout of the coast, there are no first rows and service is on a first-come-first-served basis). Convenient steps make it easy to get into the water.
Hotel guests have free use of one sun umbrella and two sunbeds per room, subject to availability, plus two beach towels.
The hotel has a fitness area; in addition, several outdoor activities and tours are available for discovering the beautiful local area: horseback riding, trekking and various excursions (offered by local partners).
The Marenea Suite Hotel has an exclusive à la carte restaurant, ‘La Terrazza sul mare’; here the chef proposes traditional Salento dishes using seasonal local produce, accompanied by a rich selection of wines. The restaurant, which enjoys a charming sea view and offers vegetarian and vegan options, is open for both lunch and dinner.
The breakfast buffet is available from 7.30 am to 11.30 am.
