Situated in the southern heel of Italy, ‘Puglia’, or the region of alternate namesake, ‘Apulia’, the resort of Borgo Egnazia is fast becoming an exclusive destination for both luxury and lifestyle-led, tailor-made holidays. Whether a romantic couple’s getaway, or sleeping within a stylistically Apulian, decadent, family-sized villa to nourish your new Mediterranean roots, all that wish for an Italian adventure fit for the movie screen that is perhaps a little different from the northern Italian tourist-focused cities, will see their dreams realised in dazzlingly vivid technicolour.
With food and activities entirely catered for the individual, Borgo Egnazia wishes to entice their visitors back for a lifetime. With many returning guests, the focus upon a personal touch is more than evident. Borgo Egnazia manages to retain the boutique elements of luxury holidays whilst championing the traditionally Italian idea of ‘family’; staff are encouraged to interact with guests in sporting and games activities such as tennis, football and watersports, whilst a real sense of nurture the guests’ children within the equipped kids’ club that provides utmost care and fun.
Against the magnificent Apulian styling of stone, piazzas, four main pools, and two beaches, a perfect holiday – for all – is the resort’s motto and raison d’être. With opulence and perfectionism promised in every proud building of pale stone, this resort has been designed to showcase an incredible attention to detail. Borgo Egnazia entices couples, families and corporate parties to their magnificent spa and golf facilities, with sustenance provided by their famous ‘cucina povera’ of locally sourced, mouth watering cuisine. The Borgo Engazia resort, in the heart of Puglia, voted by as one the 20 most beautiful areas around the globe is quite simply, world class.
It would be unwise to dismiss the romantic undertones of those traditional, Baroque and Roman northern Italian destinations – however – these familiarly and passionately resonate at large in the southern Puglia area. The familiar appeal of a deeply Mediterranean landscape; reflective white-wash stone intensifying the contrasting shades of every azure in the nearby seas, scattered with cave-sopped beaches and cloudless skies, can finally be explored with opulence and gusto, aplomb and above all, a contagious Italian individual impulsivity.

Restaurants are a huge part of the life at Borgo Egnazia. In an area where food equals the language of love, the all-important cuisine on offer consists of locally sourced fish from the nearby village, with obviously mediterranean produce such as aubergine, olives from the many nearby groves, tomatoes, grapes, watermelon, fresh peppers and artichokes, cooking and dipping oils, salami and mushrooms all grown and prepared in the Apulia region. The nearby town of Locorotondo is famed for its wine production and is offered here as if it were free flowing water. Borgo Egnazia follows the Meditteranean dietary philosophy, that healthy fresh foods will do wonders to feed the soul. A little of what you fancy is encouraged and it never tasted better within these heavenly surroundings.
Within the central piazza in Borgo Enazia’s village, ‘Il Borgo’, reside two fantastic restaurants; ‘La Frasca’ and ‘Mia Cucina’. La Corte, home to the hotel rooms and Vair Spa also boasts a fine dining restaurant for a sophisticated dining experience, and is named, ‘Due Camini’. Menus are always diverse and cater for the vegetarian and for those who enjoy the largely fish focused diet, they will be in for a daily treat. Children are also catered for with special menus aimed at the smaller, possibly less refined diets, with mashed potatoes, meatballs and burgers the order of the day. In high season a children’s restaurant, ‘Da Puccetta’ opens for business especially for little ones, complete with teeny, cutesy chairs and tables with healthy pastas, salads and fruit on offer. Although children are most welcome at the Due Camini, the La Frasca restaurant in Il Borgo is slightly less formal and relaxed with fantastic nearby baby changing facilities.
Borgo Egnazia’s exquisite charm would not be complete without a cocktail bar, perfect for meeting in before dinner or relaxing afterwards, becoming lost in chatter or simply letting people watching whilst listening to the pianist provide a perfect ambience. The Bar del Portico offers their very own cocktail, a mixture of Galliano, pink grapefruit, vodka and mint. The resort also boasts another three bars, all conveniently placed by the pool and piazza, serving up chilled beverages until 1am each evening.
Many Italians join the European and British visitors to Borgo Eganzia in the deep summer months, and many festivals that focus around food and music take place at this time of year.
The impressive Borgo Egnazia also boasts a fantastic spa in the ‘La Corte’ building. Set over two floors and over an amazing two hundred square metres, the Vair Spa has received countless nominations for best Spa – globally – and even won the 2013 Tatler Spa Award for their facilities within the Borgo Egnazia surrounding.
For the over 12’s only, many luxury skin treatments are offered, with staff dressed in Grecian robes and traditional treatments using local produce are also offered amongst the usual massage and facial combinations.
Using ancient provincial rituals, the Vair Spa is unique in addition; using locally produced pink salt scrub, Roman bath rituals and Tarantism, a spa treatment for women that involves music. Borgo Egnazia’s achingly enticing spa is a real treat for the guests who really wish to relax and unwind in calm, peaceful, utopian surroundings.
For discerning golf lovers, the Borgo Egnazia really holds some extra charm. With views to the Adriatic sea from all angles, the 18-hole course of San Domenico surrounds the resort. The fishing marina of Savelletri is to one side, whilst the ancient city of Egnathia resides on the other. The course is unique and uneasy to master, and was created by Jeremy Slessor of the European Golf Design of London. Meeting USGA guidelines, this is a course with expansive greens, and used fine Bermuda grass for the fairway. Truly memorable, if the keen golfer manages to avoid the festuca roughs, it is possible to see the necropolis ruins of the Egnathia’s ancient city from hole 8 onwards, along with a stunning, panoramic sea view.
