The Hermitage is an understated family run hotel with an abundance of facilities. Situated right on the beach in the secluded bay of Biodola, this exclusive retreat boasts warm Italian hospitality, first-class service, and exceptional cuisine.
Many of our clients come to the Hermitage with a view to exploring the magical island of Elba, but once they settle into the relaxing pace of life, many are content just making the most of their stay in this small corner of paradise. It's all about location at the Hermitage, as the hotel sits at the end of the bay where the small road ends, so there is a real sense of privacy and seclusion.
The spacious gardens, swimming pools and beautiful private beach are perfect for lazy days in the sun. Whilst the excellent tennis courts, golfing facilities, PADI diving, water-skiing and sailing courses will keep even the most active entertained.
The wonderful family atmosphere is infectious and you’ll soon see why the hotel has such a loyal following with our clients. The Hermitage has a laid back and friendly vibe with lots of space for families to enjoy the beautiful gardens, excellent facilities and of course the wonderful private beach. The service is meticulous but not stuffy and days revolve around delicious meals prepared with skill and passion, with time in between to lie back and enjoy the natural beauty of this exceptional coastline.
Choose between the main hotel, which thanks to its proximity to the pools, restaurants and beach is very popular with younger families, or apartments and suites scattered on the shady hillside looking down over the bay. The Hermitage is typically Italian with a simple and understated style. Bedrooms have whitewashed walls, are bright and cheerful with warm terracotta tiles and colourful fabrics. With rooms also leading out onto the gardens for families who want to avoid steps and slopes, we can tailor your stay around your precise needs.
Our clients are drawn back to the Hermitage because of the exceptional food. Sumptuous breakfasts on the terrace, laid back beach lunches at La Ghiotta or delicious pizzas and grilled meats at the open-air Fuoco di Bosco, which also gets transformed into a spectacular evening barbeque twice a week where the chefs put on an amazing display.
Dinner at the hotel is an institution. Everyone enjoys dressing for dinner after a day on the beach - although it is not stuffy or formal. Relax and enjoy the theatre of the traditional Italian way, with crisp white table cloths and waiters in immaculate uniforms running around big family tables. Each evening you'll be treated to delicious Tuscan specialities, local fish and seafood and steaks from the Tuscan mainland, rounded off with amazing desserts from the pastry chefs.
The hotel doesn't need a spa to pamper its guests. You'll feel it the moment you stroll down to the beach and you are shown to your reserved sun lounger - there's never any need to rush! For those who do want to enjoy a massage or a treatment the Beauty Centre offers a good range as well as other facilities. We recommend a drink at the swim-up bar followed by a soak in the huge Jacuzzi that looks down over the beach and the glittering bay.
And when you are ready to explore more of the treasures of the island, our team are on hand to drive you around, recommend the best places to visit and make all the arrangements so you needn't lift a finger.
