Quite simply, Masseria Torre Maizza is one of the great Puglia hotels.
It’s historic, surrounded by oil-producing olive groves, fuses irresistible old-meets-new design styles and, perhaps even more importantly, showcases the best regional produce via its delectable fine dining restaurant and private Beach Club bar.
This is an Italian coastal hotel that has it all, beginning with the guestrooms, each being a white-washed haven of traditional floor tiles and curved ceilings on one hand, yet cutting-edge Art Deco interior design and finishing touches on the other. Wonderfully well-equipped too, these super stylish abodes feel spacious thanks to lots of light, large windows and glass doors, though also feature luxe walk-in rain showers, plentiful mod-cons, a fireplace for the larger rooms and in some, a private garden, sun terrace, pool, or all three.
Masseria Torre Maizza itself is an ancient fortified farm building, which for lucky guests who stay here means two things. First, the surrounding lands are fertile and produce not only olives for oil in the restaurant and spa therapies, but other seasonal produce which goes into the hotel’s fine dining menu.
Second, exploring the properties many nooks and crannies is all part of the fun! This goes from the crumbling walls and Romanesque pillars surrounding a lovely outdoor swimming pool and patio, to the Aveda spa hidden away in the original Masseria watchtower, where eagle-eyed guards have since been replaced by expert masseurs, a Hammam and Jacuzzi tub.
Then, with easy access to the surrounding ancient sites of Gargano Peninsula and Bari Old Town (a little further), lots of outdoor activities, watersports and private yacht hire between this, the Beach Club and nearby sister hotel Torre Coccaro, Masseria Torre Maizza just continues to shine.
Rooms and suites at Masseria Torre Maizza are a welcoming mix of tradition and modernity, meaning typically Italian floor tiles, colour coding and ornaments that meet as one with chrome and glass-clad bathrooms, flat-screen TVs and modern furnishings both outside and in. You will certainly get all the necessary mod-cons within these abodes too, such as air-con and a minibar, as well as organic homemade toiletries and large beds, with many rooms also featuring a patio or garden, lounge areas and in some, a private pool with surrounding sundeck.
Activities and Entertainment
With use of everything at Masseria Torre Maizza and sister hotel Torre Coccaro, just a stone’s throw away, there are countless outdoor activities to enjoy between them, though also the immediate surrounding area. Torre Coccaro has a pretty 9-hole golf course onsite, though there’s an 18-hole course nearby too, plus tennis courts, bicycles for hire, watersports such as windsurfing, quad bikes, go-karting and even clay pigeon shooting if the mood takes you! Sailing is also big here and can be arranged through the hotel’s private beach club and their 14m yacht. Further afield there then lies the delights of Gargano Peninsula, its natural beauty and ancient ruins alike, Bari Old Town, countless UNESCO-listed heritage sites plus the traditional villages and local restaurants that the Puglia countryside is so loved for, all easily visited from the resort.
One of the many standout features to be found at Masseria Torre Maizza is the quite sensational Aveda Spa, tucked away in the original Torre Maizza watchtower. Though smaller than some, here you have both an inspirational setting and enough oil-infused treatments to wave off any of your daily strains, as well as a Hammam and Jacuzzi too. There’s also the pool and sun terrace surrounded by olive groves, a great concierge team plus use of neighbouring sister hotel Torre Coccaro, which itself has great kids facilities, the golf course, cooking and yoga classes to enjoy.
