There’s an elevator slipping up and down the cliffside to the water’s edge, the esplanade trimming Il Pellicano’s private bay is painted a spanking white, since the grey granite was a little hot underfoot, and attendants are on hand to polish your sunglasses, they tend to get misty with the sun cream. This is our sprezzatura, the effort concealed, the attention so utterly gracious.

Our juice bar offers refreshment with powerfully beneficial recipes such as a maqui berry and blueberry infused Rejuvenat, for anti-aging, or Liquid Gold, an antioxidant infused with banana and saffron.

Drop off your boat to our private pier, waterski, paddle board, or snorkel over the pristine underwater landscape. Or simply lie in the warm sun watching the ripples on the sea, perfecting the art of farniente.
