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.
