    A luxury boutique hotel with a swimming pool and spa in the red palace of Ostuni

    A holiday at Paragon 700 Boutique Hotel & SPA promises to be a magical experience. This luxurious retreat in the red palace of Ostuni is full of ancient treasures and may just have the most beautiful interior you've ever seen! This luxury boutique hotel can be found in one of the most beautiful towns in Puglia and is the ideal base for a luxury dream holiday with your partner.

    Whether you want to or not, you can't avoid Paragon 700 Boutique Hotel & SPA. This fairy-tale getaway is housed in the only red palace in the sparkling white town of Ostuni in Puglia. But not just the exterior of the building impresses. Inside, it exudes elegance and you can taste the atmosphere of bygone times in each of the beautifully finished rooms and suites.

    In total, Paragon 700 Boutique Hotel & SPA has 15 picture-perfect rooms & suites, which without hesitation, are among the most beautiful we have ever seen. Each room has been decorated by architect and interior designer Pascale Lauber with such care and an eye for detail, radiates so much finesse, that you are short of eyes on entry. Each room is unique and has its own special features. Even the simplest room has ceilings with beautiful frescoes and a bathroom that is inspired by the South African boma (semi-open space). But the most luxurious room, the Paragon Suite, with its 7-meter high cathedral ceiling, sunken bath, and large open fireplace in the bedroom, is truly Pascale's masterpiece!

    Paragon 700 Boutique Hotel & SPA is not just a stay. It is a romantic place where you can make beautiful memories with your lover, truly enjoy quality time and explore the pristine region of Puglia, in slow motion. If you fancy spending a relaxing day at the hotel, it's possible to have a private yoga or pilates class in the hotel garden or sign up for a painting workshop. You can also enjoy an outdoor massage on a sunny day or settle down by the 15-meter long swimming pool. If you can't be relaxed enough or just want to treat yourself, then visit the spa, about 7 meters underground in the former water reservoir of the Palazzo Rosso. Here you will find a hydromassage bath, a steam bath, a spa shower with chromotherapy, and a relaxation room with Himalayan salt walls. You get it; after a visit, you'll feel completely reborn!

    One of the most authentic regions of Italy

    Undiscovered paths, extensive vineyards, rolling landscapes and 'the best of all': hardly any tourists to be found. Just a flat and sparsely populated area with a number of authentic cities and photogenic villages with whitewashed houses and the iconic trulli. The Italian region of Puglia is a sight to behold. Make the most dreamy pictures of the trulli (small round white houses with cone-shaped roofs) during your holiday and enjoy the pearl white beaches.

    Gems of rooms

    The luxury rooms and suites of this House of Hideaways accommodation are undoubtedly among the most beautiful you will ever see. Attention has been paid to the interior down to the smallest details. You will see beautiful French parquet floors, cathedral ceilings, antique frescoes, and fireplaces. But also special pieces of furniture and decorations, some of which you can even buy to take home with you.

    Restaurant & Bar 700

    Restaurant 700 is run by head chef Pasquale Palermo and is open to both guests and locals. At this beautiful location, you will experience an intimate dining experience at a star level, and you can taste local wines from the hotel's wine cellar. The hotel offers a special "Explore and Taste Puglia" menu, through this culinary tasting, you'll discover the authentic flavors of this beloved region. Have you finished eating and drinking? Then drop by Bar 700, where you can enjoy a cocktail, local spirits, or a good glass of wine by the fireplace. Be sure to be surprised by the homemade cocktails, prepared by Leonardo Giorgini, the best mixologist in Puglia.

    Ostuni

    Enchanting Ostuni is one of the most photographed cities in Southern Italy. And for good reason, if you ask us. The labyrinth of streets, stairs, alleys, church towers and whitewashed houses on a hill not far from the sea seem to have been carved out of a rock by an artist. Funny detail: in the white town - also known as la città bianca - residents are required to re-whiten their house every year.
