Borgo Egnazia – Italy

Borgo Egnazia villa

Built like a traditional village, Borgo Egnazia is nestled in the countryside on the very heel of Italy, Puglia. Set in 40 organic acres,within a 250-acre private estate beside the Adriatic, the resort resembles is composed by a cluster of individual villas grouped around a 63-room hotel. Pino Brescia (architect and interior decorator behind the project) and his team took two years to study the local architecture before commiting to the planning of the hotel; the result is a grand tribute to the region of Puglia, with its strong rural past and its architectural references to the moorish and spanish heritages.

The A-list love this charming, rustic-chic retreat: Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel took over the entire place last year for their paparazzi-free wedding.

Could such a stylish retreat lack a Spa? The Vair is Spa Heaven, with 14 treatment rooms, a spa suite with a garden; an iyengar yoga studio, a heated indoor pool, steam room and the salt and basil-infused Apulian sauna.Treatments are inspired by local ingredients, like the prickle pear trees and olive groves sorrounding the property: we loved the Apulian pink-salt body scrub or try the Spirt V, for couples or small groups,which includes a roman style bath (2 hours, 170 Euro pp).

Besides the Spa, the property also boasts an 18 hole golf course,restaurants, bar, cooking school, three outdoor pools, an indoor pool and a fitness centre.
