Without a doubt the most polished of all the masseria hotels is the huge 15th-century San Domenico, surrounded by olive groves on the coast near Fasano and already into its second decade. Every corner of every acre is manicured like a Park Avenue princess: from the large, free-form saltwater swimming pool, bordered with oiled Romans in La Perla bikinis and floodlit at night, to the majestic Thalassotherapy-La Prairie spa with its skylit, galleried pool and special treatments using estate olive oil. There's also a triple-groomed 18-hole golf course—now with its own separate 15-room luxury guesthouse, the Masseria Cimino. The 50 rooms at the San Domenico are done up in bobble-trim brocades and bed curtains, with polished walnut upholstered chairs—all very bourgeois and comforting. The junior suites include patios. Of the two restaurants, only the posh-Puglian San Domenico is open for dinner; the Pool Grill just does a buffet lunch.

Closed second week in January until Easter.
