Overview

Borgo Egnazia is an uber stylish, five-star hotel set within 20 hectares of Puglia countryside with views across the Adriatic Sea. It’s built in the style of a traditional village (borgo) so it’s full of charm and character. The award-winning Vair Spa is infused with the soul of Southern Italy, focusing on re-balancing the mind and emotional health with a variety of creative treatments and unique activities, while the kids club is truly outstanding. The Apulian food is a real delight too, with fresh, local produce and our own carefully crafted healthy menu for children readily available in resort.
