Though this blinding-white stone monolith looks as ancient as the fortified farmhouses that surround it, sprawling Borgo Egnazia is actually brand-new. Rooms are monochromatic, splicing luxe (limestone double sinks; wide shaded terraces) with unexpected design moments (single olive branches in lieu of flowers). Twin pools are lounge-worthy and huge; if only management would designate one of them exclusively for adults.
Room to Book:
Rooms 149 and 151 win for most romantic, with spacious terraces overlooking the hills of the surrounding Itria Valley—both perfect places to soak up a southern sunset.
Upon request, grown-ups can use the beach club of adults-only sister hotel Masseria San Domenico—a bit more luxe, a lot more tranquil.
