The Grotta Palazzese is one of the most unique and interesting hotels in the South of Italy.  It has attracted the attention of travel writers the world over and Fodor's, for instance, has awarded the hotel and restaurant its Gold Star.

The stark and modern looking hotel is perched on the rocks above the harbor at Polignano A Mare on the  Adriatic Coast creating a compelling juxtaposition between the straight unadorned lines of the hotel with the ragged cliffs and grotto below.

The hotel's romantic and striking restaurant, which serves a wide variety of Pugliese food and wine, is built on an amazing  platform inside a sea cave - or grotta. 

The grotta was originally built by a local feudatory nobleman, Duke Leto, and used in his day as a stunning reception room.

The hotel has 24 comfortable, well appointed rooms, and offers all the amenities.
