Jumeirah is adding an “unrivalled” Italian hotel and restaurant to its international luxury portfolio.
The hospitality group, which is also a member of Dubai Holding, has been appointed to operate and manage Capri Palace.
Reopening as Capri Palace Jumeirah on 23 April 2020, the property is located in the Anacapri and overlooks the Gulf of Naples.
It has 68 rooms and is decorated with white-washed walls, arched ceilings, columns and artwork by De Chirico, Keith Haring and Pomodoro.
The hotel’s signature restaurant, L’Olivo, has two Michelin stars while its private beach club, Il Riccio, has one.
Its current general manager, Ermanno Zanini, will not only continue in his role but has also become regional vice president in Italy and Spain for the Jumeirah Group.
“Capri Palace, Jumeirah embodies our brand values of providing excellent service, unrivalled culinary experiences and inspiring design, and joins our existing collection of European properties in London, Majorca and Frankfurt,” said Jose Silva, Jumeirah Group’s chief executive.
Zanini said: “We are delighted that Jumeirah Group has embraced Capri Palace to be a part of its portfolio. With the warmth of our team, the big smiles and the even bigger hearts, we look forward to building on greatness and reach new frontiers as part of this renowned global luxury hospitality company.”
Jumeirah has hotels in Europe, the Middle East, China and Maldives. It also has properties planned for 2020 in Indonesia and Oman.
