A true travel connoisseur, Melissa has an immense experience of travelling to amazing parts of the world that has allowed her to gather fascinating stories and knowledge from diverse people and places.
The girls at the Odabash HQ are constantly on the lookout for exciting places to travel and Melissa is our point person when it comes to recommendations on where to go. As we are highlighting the Isle of Capri this week (our SS19 High Summer Collection was shot there), we had to ask Melissa to impart her favourite things to see and do in Capri. She also lived and worked in Italy for many years so she is an expert on where the popular haunts are. Continue reading and you will want to book your next holiday in Capri!
Capri Palace is Melissa’s go-to station for accommodation in Capri. This five-star hotel comes equipped with all the amenities you will need to spend a relaxed and rejuvenating time among the picturesque mountains and cove-studded coastlines. 'Sleek and sophisticated' are the words that come to mind on entering the all-white hotel. Gorgeous furniture and exquisite chandeliers fill every room and hallway, while modern artworks commissioned by owner Tonino Cacace add a playful pop of colour.
For maximum pampering, unwind at the legendary Capri Beauty Farm. They are renowned for their holistic spa experience and innovative treatments like 'Leg School'- which has been known to literally reshape legs and vanish any signs of cellulite- so how could a promise like this be resisted?! A wellness treatment, tailored to each guests specific requirements is just what the doctor ordered!
To enjoy breathtaking natural beauty of Capri, you have to reach the summit of Mount Solaro, which soars 589 meters above sea level. It is the highest and most panoramic point on the island so get that camera ready to capture the whole island of Capri. If you like to keep active during your holiday you can walk up to the summit which can take anything between an hour and an hour and a half. Alternatively, you can get to Mount Solaro by chairlift which will take just 12 minutes.
How can a visit to Italy not involve an indulgence of some quality Italian food? Dine in Michelin star restaurants at the Il Riccio Beach Club as you take in the never ending blue sea from cliffside. You will enjoy sumptuous seafood and authentic feast of Mediterranean flavours that has enticed the taste buds of celebrities and world's elite like Julia Roberts, Oprah and Melissa herself!
