Stay: An Extravagant Retreat

When Valentino Garavani is in town and tires of his 152-foot yacht, he retreats to the terrace of the Grand Hotel Quisisana, the swaggering pinnacle of pink luxury just south of the piazzetta. In view of Capri’s main row of luxury boutiques, their white awnings draped in bougainvillea, the 147-room hotel boasts sprawling grounds, a spa with signature La Prairie treatments, and a revolving door of bold-faced names. Via Camerelle, 2; 39-081/837-0788; quisisana.com.
