New reason to make a beeline for Capri. We hear Hotel Punta Tragara will debut its extra-spacious new accommodations at the start of the 2011 travel season, which begins April 8. Part of the Manfredi Fine Hotel Collection, the 44-room seaside retreat is owned by three generations of Italian Counts and is currently overseen by brothers Leonardo and Goffredo Manfredi.
Perched high above sea level, Punta Tragara's 10 new Junior Suites have roomy living areas and large terraces or balconies with views of the iconic Faraglioni Sea Stacks and the bay of Marina Piccola. The Junior Suites range in size from 409-430 square feet, each individually-designed with several suites containing two levels.
The hotel has also debuted its redesigned Faraglioni Suite. The suite measures 516 square feet and features contemporary art works, antique furniture and the hotel's largest marble bathroom and a terrace with views of the Faraglioni rocks.
