The famous old hotel Masseria Muzza, located deep in the countryside of Salento among the Mediterranean flora, the aroma of olive trees and the beautiful beaches of the Adriatic, joined the chain of Baglioni Hotels & Resorts Group. This new gem of the Italian Baglioni Hotels & Resorts series will open its doors at the end of May 2022.
Located just a few minutes’ drive from the Adriatic town of Otranto and an hour’s drive from Salento Airport, Baglioni Masseria Muzza is the perfect place to spend a vacation amidst the wonderful nature of the Lecce area. The beauty of this place is fascinating – olive groves shining in the rays of sunsets, sand dunes towering over the crystal clear sea.
The heart of the hotel is a historic 17th-century white stone building surrounded by five acres of countryside. The rooms of the hotel are decorated with Venetian plaster, decorated with stonework and decorated with exquisite furniture in a classic Apulian style.
Baglioni Masseria Muzza is an excellent combination of the simplicity of the ancient traditions of Salento and the famous Italian hospitality in the unique style of Baglioni. The courtyards, surrounded by a Mediterranean garden paradise, create a perfect harmony between architecture and nature. The spacious rooms of the hotel will help fulfill the dreams of those who want to hold a fabulous wedding or a special event.
To make your stay unforgettable, the Baglioni Masseria Muzza Hotel offers a tasting of Apulian cuisine in its exquisite execution in two restaurants.
Thanks to the relaxation areas designed for calm contemplation of nature and exquisite design, guests can relax body and soul. The spa center has a steam bath, an indoor swimming pool, a 90 °C Finnish sauna, an ice fountain, a relaxation area, 2 sensory showers and 4 treatment rooms, as well as a gym equipped with the most modern Technogym equipment.
Baglioni Masseria Muzza is an ideal place for outdoor enthusiasts. The private estate and its surroundings create unique conditions for yoga, jogging and hiking, not to mention mountain biking and horse riding. Avid golfers can visit the nearby Acaya Golf Club.
The coast of Salento, stretching from Otranto to Santa Cesarea Terme, offers unforgettable diving, snorkeling, canoeing, kayaking, kitesurfing and fishing, and an aerial tour aboard an ultralight aircraft will allow you to see the most exciting local surroundings from a bird’s eye view.
Otranto, the Idro Valley, the Valle delle Memorie and the Alimini Lakes are great places for both a leisurely walk and hiking.
“As at the Baglioni resort in Sardinia, which was opened last year, we again offer our guests a 5-star holiday in complete harmony with nature. The Masseria Muzza Hotel is located near Otranto, next to one of the most beautiful sections of the Salento coast. Although the pandemic, alas, is not over yet, the opening of this new resort in 2022 will be a joyful event for Baglioni Hotels & Resorts, as we are preparing to launch the sixth hotel in our native Italy,” said Guido Polito, CEO of Baglioni Hotels & Resorts since 2011.
