The Vivosa Apulia Resort is a welcome addition to our selection of hotels in Puglia. Located on the Ionian coast just south of beautiful Gallipoli within a protected natural park, this hotel offers great accommodation, super facilities and a wonderful sandy beach. The hotel operates a luxury all-inclusive package ensuring guests have everything they need from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave, making it very easy to simply relax without having to worry about an extras bill on check-out.
You may decide to stay put or explore some of this fascinating area of Southern Italy – for romantics, and those looking to stretch their legs, a 30-minute walk along the sandy beach will take you to pretty Torre San Giovanni. As you are on the west coast, prepare yourselves for some totally amazing sunsets where the red sun just drops into the water. Ugento is the nearest town and is full of history as it was a major Roman trading port, Santa Maria di Leuca is a short hop and the most southerly point in Italy and other beautiful towns such as Gallipoli, Otranto and Lecce are all easily reached.

Vivosa was a wonderful resort with fantastic kids club and great and varied food offering in a beautiful, natural location. Rooms could do with some upgrade and the fact that with one child only a certain room category was available felt a bit restrictive - it meant we basically had no balcony or terrace to enjoy a glass of wine once our 7 year old went to bed. Overall a fantastic trip, can not compliment the kids club and activities or the food highly enough. Super pool and beach areas also. July 2023

A fabulous holiday at Vivosa resort. Really wonderful people there and great service. We really enjoyed spending time at the resort, the facilities were great especially the pools and beach. The food was exceptional throughout our stay. Really great service by Essential Italy, our second holiday with you and we will be back I am sure. August 2022
