VOI Tropea Essentia is a modern hotel that underwent full renovation in 2021. It overlooks the renowned Costa degli Dei: the stretch of Calabrian coastline that is said to have been the home of ancient Greek gods and goddesses, due to the beauty of its landscapes.
The hotel stands in 4 hectares of land, with wide open, green spaces, sports courts, a great swimming pool and 100 bedrooms, split into 9 small buildings, to offer greater privacy and independence for all our guests.
The hotel’s private beach is just a short walk from the hotel, where guests can relax to the sound of the waves.

Our Smart rooms have also recently been renovated. They are more compact single or double rooms than our Superior rooms, but are furnished in the same fresh, modern style, and have the exact same amenities.

All the rooms are en suite with shower and hair dryers, Wi-Fi, telephone, satellite TV with multimedia streaming device, safety deposit box, air-conditioning, mini fridge with free mineral water refill for your entire stay and a practical coffee and tea making kit. Each room has its own furnished patio, where guests can enjoy the cool air and the peace and quiet of the hotel’s lush gardens. Triple rooms also have access to an inner shared courtyard.

Our sea view paradise
With access solely for VOI Tropea Essentia guests, the beach is a mix of white sand and gravel, as is typical on the Costa degli Dei. Periodically, currents transport stones onto the shore: we would recommend wearing water shoes in this case to enter the water.
This truly, heavenly landscape provides enough palm parasols and sunbeds for all the guest room. From here you will be able to enjoy a relaxing, invigorating view of the bright blue, crystal clear sea. Beach towels will be provided, to be used during your stay, and a shared practical powerbank is also available
