Borgo Egnazia is located in Savelletri di Fasano, where the hills of the Itria Valley gently fall away to the Adriatic Sea, and the property itself is inspired by the shapes, materials and colours of a typical Puglian village. This authenticity was conceived to bring a fresh and original feel that is found ‘nowhere else’, alongside impeccable service.
It is a miniature world of homemade breakfasts prepared by Puglian Massaie, delicious food experiences both gourmet and traditional that are strongly related to the Mediterranean Diet and then Vair, the poetic Puglian Spa, two beautiful private beaches (Cala Masciola and La Fonte) and the scenic San Domenico Golf surrounded by ancient olive trees with views that stretch to the sea. And then there’s the service; tailored, friendly and caring, a dedicated team always available to guests (the Local Advisers).
All year round, in every season, Borgo Egnazia embodies a different concept of hospitality and wellbeing based on local, authentic experiences in the incomparable beauty of the Puglian countryside.
Since 2010 Borgo Egnazia has been part of Leading Hotel of the World and it has received prestigious accolades such as “Best Hotel of the Year” by Virtuoso in 2016 and “Most Life Changing Experience” by Condè Nast UK in 2017. In July 2018 Borgo Egnazia has been recognized as the #1 Top Italian Resort by Travel + Leisure in their World’s Best Awards, and it has also been named #4 in the Top 10 European Resort Hotels category, and #43 in the Top 100 Hotels Overall category.
Born from the visionary project of Pino Brescia, a local designer who brought to life a concept created by the Melpignano family, Borgo Egnazia is a tribute to traditional architecture which incorporates materials (local stone and hand-cut “tufo” stone), and features such as small windows and porches typical of the region.
Borgo Egnazia features three accommodation, different in scope and size, but all conceived as an harmonious blend of tradition and innovation, modernity and authenticity: La Corte is the main building, contemporary reinterpretation of a traditional Masseria, with 63 rooms divided into three categories; the famous Borgo is in the heart of the property and it is inspired to the ancient rural villages with its entrance arches, narrow streets with Puglian names, the amazing Piazza, the iconic clock tower and 92 “casette” (townhouses); finally there are 28 Villas, sophisticated and cozy, with private gardens and pools that are perfect for families and for those who want absolute privacy.
