Milan, 4 January 2021 – An enchanting location just a few minutes from Otranto, surrounded by verdant olive groves and the azure Salento sea.
Baglioni Hotels & Resorts Group has taken over the running of the acclaimed Masseria Muzza, a magical historic property deep in the Salento countryside amid the Mediterranean flora, the fragrance of the olives, and the beautiful Adriatic beaches. This latest marvel in the Baglioni Hotels & Resorts Italian Collection will open its doors in late May 2022.
Situated just a few minutes from the delightful Adriatic town of Otranto and an hour from Salento airport, the Baglioni Masseria Muzza is an idyllic destination for a holiday exploring the stunning scenery of the Lecce area.
The Baglioni Masseria Muzza is a superlative blend of the simplicity of the old Salento tradition and the excellence of luxury Italian hospitality in inimitable Baglioni style. In the luminous courtyards and the Mediterranean garden, the plant life provides a beautiful backdrop to the white-stone design, creating a perfect harmony between the architecture and the green maquis. The large, elegant, comfortable spaces are perfect for sublime relaxing moments and become dream venues for fairy-tale weddings and unique events.
And to make every stay even more unforgettable, the 2 restaurants offer Pugliese cuisine at its light, sophisticated best.
With areas dedicated to tranquil contemplation amid the natural environs and refined design, guests can rest and refresh both body and mind at the marvellous spa and fitness room.
The Baglioni Masseria Muzza is the ideal destination for lovers of the active open-air life. The private estate and surrounding country make a unique setting for yoga, jogging and trekking, not to mention mountain biking and horse riding. Keen golfers can enjoy a round or two at the nearby Acaya Golf Club.
“In opening a resort in Puglia, once again – after the launch of the Baglioni Resort Sardinia last year – we are offering our guests a 5-star stay deep in the heart of the natural world. The Masseria Muzza is near Otranto, close to one of the most beautiful stretches of the Salento coast. Although the pandemic, alas, is not yet over, and the travel sector is still feeling the impact, the opening of this new resort in 2022 represents a fresh wave of optimism for Baglioni Hotels & Resorts as we prepare to rise with confidence to a series of major new challenges,” commented Guido Polito, Baglioni Hotels & Resorts CEO since 2011.
