Capri Palace Hotel, Capri
Capri is where we begin our adventure. This beautiful island has long been the holiday spot of choice for the elite, and as such it is home to some seriously world-class spas. Dock the yacht at the Marina Grande and spend the day exploring the delights of Capri: from the enchanting gardens at Villa San Michele, to the Adam and Eve mosaic in the church of San Michele, to the chairlift at Monte Solaro, taking you up to the island’s highest point for stunning views over the city. As dusk begins to fall, you have your pick of divine restaurants – Ristorante Monzu is one of our favourites for indulging on a wellness yacht charter.
The next day it’s time to head to the Capri Palace Hotel for some serious rest and recuperation. The Mytha SPA here is run by a team of doctors, therapists, beauticians and dieticians who work to create a holistic spa atmosphere based on scientific principles that work. Treatments target goals from weight loss to stress management and anything in between. Enjoy rejuvenating massages, oxygen infusions, thalasso therapeutic scrubs and so much more, and leave floating on a cloud.
Bellavista Francischiello Hotel & Spa, Sorrento
When you finally manage to drag yourself away from your first pampering session, it’s only a very short cruise to your next stop – the clifftop town of Sorrento. It was the poet Byron who first inspired people to come to this charming destination, and we have a lot to thank him for. Watch the sunset from the iconic terrace at Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria, gazing out at the sparkling sea and with cocktail in hand. Enjoy yet more tranquility in the Cloisters of San Francisco, where historic arches draped in deep green foliage provide a fairytale-like setting.
After drinking in all the sights and sounds, more treatments wait for you at the ultra-chic Hotel Bellavista Francischiello. Feel all your troubles melt away as you float in the heated pool, which faces onto a natural rock wall – complete with a massaging water stream – and has views over the Gulf of Naples. Relax into a series of treatments, including colour therapy and prestigious texture Fisiosphere, before enjoying a romantic dinner by candlelight at the hotel’s exclusive restaurant. What a way to end this Sorrento section of your wellness yacht charter.
Villa Franca Hotel, Positano
The next and final stop on your wellness yacht charter is Positano, famed for its rows of pretty pastel houses and generally postcard-perfect aesthetic. However, Positano’s charm goes so much deeper. Boutique shops, intimate restaurants and unique galleries line the edge of the town centre, while beautiful churches like the Santa Maria lie just a stone’s throw from the beach. Snorkel or scuba dive on one of the many quiet coves dotted around Positano.
As if all that wasn’t relaxing enough, Villa Franca Hotel’s elegant treatment centre offers skilled massage therapists who can work any remaining tension out of your body while aromatherapy oils hang in the air. Sothys skincare products are used to help you achieve that blissed-out state, while every area of the spa is designed with rejuvenation in mind. When you’ve had all the treatments you could wish for, hang out in the traditional Turkish baths and laze the rest of the day away.
If you’re feeling like 2019 is already getting on top of you, this wellness yacht charter on the Amalfi Coast is the perfect antidote. Tour through Capri, Sorrento and Positano, soaking up the culture and treating yourself to some incredible treatments along the way. What better start to the year!
