The best place to stay in Caserta

The best place to stay in Caserta

For the lovers of Campania, I have today a very nice idea, less then half an hour drive from the bustling Napoli. And of course, a lot more calm and more silent place than the crowded Napoli, Sorrento, Pompei or Costa Amalfitana.

For those wanting to spend a few days at Royal Palace or Reggia di Caserta, which is really a fabulous place or at the neighbouring old Casertavecchia, this hotel is a perfect option.

I am talking about Grand Hotel Vanvitelli, named after the architect of the Reggia, which is the biggest palace in the world and where scenes of Mission Impossible III or Angels and Demons were filmed.

Grand Hotel Vanvitelli in fact is a small palace, with a very nice architecture, large halls and 250 rooms, and with a large free park-pool. With a spectacular outdoor swimming pool, restaurants, bars and lounge, Grand Hotel Vanvitelli looks like a royal residence, with today’s comforts and hospitality. Charming gardens, complete with fountains surround Vanvitelli’s outdoor pool.

The 250 rooms are combining luxury furnishings with the convenience of technology.
I stayed in a spacious Junior Suite, which was equipped with a nice Jacuzzi tube and with a large corner terrace, a living room  and a dressing room.

The spa at the Vanvitelli is fabulous. Naboo Spa has more then 1200 sq meters of wellness and water pampering areas.

The curved heated swimming pool with jets and a blue sky backdrop is the ideal place for maximum relaxation. But also the whirlpools. You can also  unwind on one of the water beds, the perfect place to relax, listen to music, and dream…

The wellness area is equipped with a balsamic herbal bath, a steam bath, and a large Finnish sauna to be alternated with aromatherapy showers and an ice waterfall. For enthusiasts, the “sauna master” is available, where an Aufguss ceremony, clouds of perfumes, and steam, will immediately make you feel more toned, relaxed, and purified.

For business trips, the conference centre of the Grand Hotel Vanvitelli is one of the major congress facilities in Campania. The centre offers 16 meeting rooms that can be set up for any type of event , with a total capacity of 1,500 seats.
