About the hotel
SETTING & STYLE
Borgo Egnazia is an elegant five-star retreat of contemporary design with décor in relaxing shades of white, cream and taupe. Borgo Egnazia spans more than 49 acres and nestles between the undulating Valle d’Itria hills, ancient olive groves and the Adriatic Sea. The traditional fishing village of Savelletri is a mere 1.5km away. Since 2010 Borgo Egnazia is the essence of the authentic Puglian hospitality. The property is built entirely of “tufo”, the rough typical limestone, and local stones cut by the skilled hands of stone masters. Artist and designer Pino Brescia was inspired by the simplicity of Puglia’s ancient farmhouses and rural villages. It is a contemporary interpretation of Puglian architecture. Borgo Egnazia provides three kinds of accommodation, different in scope and size, but all conceived as a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation, modernity and authenticity, grandeur and simplicity.
RESTAURANTS & BARS
All the restaurants at Borgo Egnazia narrate the Puglian tradition and the immense gastronomic richness of the Mediterranean culture. The dishes that can be tasted in the six different restaurants are history and memory of the land of Puglia, but also innovative creations, offering a perfect balance between the pleasure of taste and the correct nutritional values. Every day the Executive Chef Domingo Schingaro, along with his team and adviser Chef Andrea Ribaldone, is able to draw on a sublime culinary experience. A priceless heritage consisting of the precious Extra Virgin olive oil made from centuries-old olive groves, the variety of vegetables from the fields around the Borgo, the meat from the pastures of the Murgia hills, the catch of the day from the sea, the pantry of traditional flavours and pearls of wisdom.

"We had much use of the children care room next to the family pool. There are people working there to help play with and taking care of children. It is not like we left them there for hours - but we would maybe lay by the pool and then our children would be with us a little, and then also go inside and paint or play with clay or even bake cakes!…. and then come out and join us when they wanted to. Anyway - it was like having a nanny with us. It gave us, the grownups, a bit more time on our own to relax properly. Great service!" T. - October 2013
"The hotel itself was beautiful. The way the rooms have been built to enhance the surroundings landscape is breathtaking. The kids club is the best I have ever come across in all our holidays. My kids 8 and 6 want to go back again." Aminah - June 2013
"Every single member of staff from front desk to waiters to housekeepers are so lovely and amazing. I recommend this hotel to anyone who has high standards and enjoys tranquility. I cannot wait to go back next year - there is no doubt this is one of my favourite places in the world as the hotel itself is breathtaking. The views are incredible, the golf club is top class and the beaches amazing." Kiran - October 2013
