Magnet for poets, artists and lovers for generations, this lemon-scented town offers a panorama of enchanting views across the Bay of Naples, scenic walks, historic palazzi—and visits to Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast and the Isle of Capri





Sorrento has earned many alluring soubriquets: Land of Mermaids. Land of Orange and Lemon Groves. Land of Colours, to name but three. Famed for its sea cliffs, the town's steep slopes with their jumble of coloured houses look out over azure waters to Ischia, Capri and the Bay of Naples. Magnet for poets, artists and lovers over generations, the rocky peninsula of Sorrento with its sun-drenched citrus groves offers a panorama of enchanting views and a wealth of historic Renaissance palazzi and Romanesque churches to give depth to its lively holiday atmosphere. There is great sea fishing, boat cruises and walking trails across the peninsula—added to which, the weather is a delight: as early as March and as late as October there are days that feel like summer. By April, Spring is truly under way.


Beyond its own attractions, this bay-within-a-bay is a perfect base for visiting the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, for touring the Amalfi coast, sailing round Punta della Campanella at the tip of the Sorrentine Peninsula to visit Positano or Amalfi, and for exploring the Roman ruins at Pompeii and Ercolano. So, for Members seeking a stylish contemporary boutique hotel with superb sea views and an emphasis on peace and regeneration, and a superb touring base, we have chosen Cinzia and Antonino’s ‘place by the sea’, Laqua, a boutique spa hotel at Meta, 4km from the centre of Sorrento.

Recently taken over by our partners at luxurious Villa Crespi on Lake Orta, this is a calm, stylish, contemporary, high-tech boutique hotel, with expert service, friendly and attentive. There are six spacious suites, each with a private infinity plunge pool on the terrace, giving opportunities for a private meal: breakfast and lunch in the sunshine while revelling in the views over the Gulf of Naples, watching the ships go by, or dining by candlelight as the lights of Sorrento twinkle in the distance.

A unique and beautiful place to restore a jaded equilibrium, Laqua is a boutique home-from-home. Decked out in soft colours, with open spaces and emphasis on harmony and light, this is a place in which to relax totally, and yet be within easy reach of historic Sorrento, with all of the Peninsula at your feet and the wider attractions of the Amalfi Coast and Capri either a boat or car ride away.

The atmosphere at Laqua is designed to induce deep relaxation, backed up by the intimate sauna and sea-water pool, tropical rain showers and therapy and beauty treatments. This is a perfect short break for couples seeking de-stress therapy, and as the hotel is less than 50 minutes from Naples airport, which itself is only 2 hours 30 minutes from London, it makes a quick and easy short break—as well as giving our Members extremely advantageous rates.
