Palazzo Caravita di Sirignano, located in Naples on the Riviera di Chiaia, is one of the most significant examples of Neapolitan princely residences. Since 2018, it has been owned by the family of Nunzio and Anna Colella, who lead the fashion brands Gutteridge and Alcott. From the time of the acquisition, Nunzio Colella's ambition was clear: to offer Naples a hotel experience that matches the charm and uniqueness of the city.

A Noble Future

This noble residence boasts extraordinary features and an important history. As the first palace to be built along the Riviera di Chiaia, with its cornerstone laid in 1535, it will open to the public in 2027 as a luxury 5-star hotel under the management of Rocco Forte Hotels, marking the Nunzio Colella family's debut in the hospitality sector.

The renovation of this historic building has been entrusted to internationally renowned architect Michele Bönan, known for his brilliant architecture and interior design projects for prestigious hotels. In his work, Bönan brings his distinctive interpretation of Italian luxury style, giving the projects unparalleled elegance.

The project includes 46 spacious suites, a rooftop with a panoramic pool, 2 restaurants, generous private gardens, bars, and a large spa, all embodying elegance and exclusivity.

A Great Story of Beauty

In its halls, furnished with furniture, paintings, tapestries, and precious objects from the royal palaces of Naples, Capodimonte, and Caserta, and in the park with gardens, avenues, flower beds, and fountains, the Palace has hosted the aristocratic Naples of the time. It has been a receptacle of culture and well-being, of artistic personalities, and of significant social importance. Distinguished Italian guests and royals from all over Europe traveled along the Riviera in their carriages and luxurious vehicles of the era to attend the magnificent parties and receptions at the Palace.

At the end of the 1800s, the property of the Palace passed to the princes of Sirignano, who beautified it with major renovations and had the merit of opening and donating to the city a road that leads from the Riviera to what is today the Sirignano District. Therefore, the Sirignano Palace, as it stands today, is the result of a complex transformation of buildings starting from the first 17th-century settlement, and in particular, of the complete transformation of the great palace of the Count of Syracuse, younger brother of King Ferdinand II of Bourbon, carried out between 1889 and 1896 by Prince Caravita di Sirignano, to whom we owe the beauty, majesty, and impressiveness of the current structure.
