From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Though minimalist chic and earth colors pervade at the restructured 1915 Villa Marina, each of the spacious 21 rooms is designed differently and named after a famous personality from the artistic enclave that put Capri on the map. Bathrooms are especially fabulous: Entertainer Gracie Fields's tub, big enough for four, features a rush of water spilling from a large rock, and physician Axel Munthe's enormous green marble bathroom has a tub with a sea view. A panoramic roof terrace means gorgeous sunsets, and the candlelit Ziqu' restaurant offers a spectacle of glittering yachts in the Marina Grande. The hotel's small spa is the perfect place to unwind after treks down the Via Krupp or up to Emperor Tiberius's ancient villa. The staff are warm, but, when making plans, watch out for a Neapolitan approximation of details.—2009 Hot List

When to go: Easter opens the season, which winds down at the end of October.
