In our seven-hectare Mediterranean-scrub park you will find our private beach, sea-water swimming pool, tennis courts, fitness room, bowling, bicycles, massage parlour, playground and other sports like sailing, diving, windsurfing, trekking and mountain biking. Our staff will also book excursions for you. Spend a relaxing day beside the pool and enjoy a refreshing Summer Cocktail and a luxurious snack which will be served directly to your sun lounger in the exclusive Mediterranean Oasis. It is possible to organise swimming lessons for adults and children with authorized Italian Swimming Federation instructors. A tiny gem which can be seen from the provincial road for Marciana Marina, Spartaia is on a small bay on the larger Procchio Gulf. The sandy beach, surrounded by green Mediterranean scrub, runs down to the turquoise and emerald-green sea. The name comes from the Sparto plant which grows on the dunes and on the edges of the sandy beach. The Hotel provides you with a private cabin, beach umbrellas and deckchairs for your comfort. The gym takes on a new dimension in a unique corner lost in greenery. It has weights, cyclette, and a treadmill and you can freshen up in the nearby sea-water swimming pool. And from this summer we are proud to offer also the Power-Plate machine!!! Power Plate® machines are a great alternative for people who enjoy an active lifestyle, but do not have the time for a lengthy work-out three or more times a week. Acceleration Training™ exercise using Power Plate® machines offers a number of important benefits that will help fitness goals easily be achieved or exceeded. These benefits include measurable outcomes, such as increased muscle strength and flexibility, better core conditioning and stability. Even on holidays you won’t have to skip your tennis routine thanks to the two tennis courts in our Mediterranean-scrub park. It is possible to organise lessons for adults and children with qualified instructors. Thanks to the island’s mild climate in spring and autumn it is ideal for those who like to practise extreme sports and those who prefer more tranquil activities. Everyone will find some kind of outdoor activity in the island’s blue waters or on its rocky coastline. Riding, golf, kayaking, mountain bikinig, diving, trekking and sailing are just some of the sports guests can enjoy. Our concierge will be happy to provide you with all the information you need, help you to rent equipment and to book excursions with qualified personnel. Visitors come to Elba to enjoy the sea, the sun and the island’s uncontaminated natural beauty....but also to relax and get back into tiptop form. The San Giovanni Spa, opposite the Gulf of Portoferraio is just 10 minutes from the Hotel Désirée and offers a wide selection of treatments: from anti-stress to anti-smog and from cellulitis treatments to slimming programmes in general. Here in the hotel we have set up a relaxation and wellness area where we offer a selection of massages and have a corner with light-fitness equipment.

Hotel Details


Our three meeting rooms are an ideal choice for doing business and are equipped with state-of-the-art technology including broad-band Internet and wifi, audio-visual technology, projectors and screens, microphones and amplifiers. And we will be happy to discuss anything else you should require.


The Hotel Désirée is 12 kilometres from Portoferraio, one kilometre from Procchio, seven kilometres from Marciana Marina and five kilometres from Marina di Campo. Its position in the centre of the island makes it easy and fast to reach from all the most important locations. And the airport is only four kilometres away. When you get to Portoferraio follow the signs for Procchio. Keep going towards Marciana Marina and after one kilometre turn right for Spartaia.


The rooms are in three separate buildings which are close to one another. The Dèsirée with classic, superior and deluxe rooms; the Paolina with apartments which are ideal for families and the Walewska with family apartments. The Désirée is the hotel’s central building and also houses the reception, the restaurant and the main bar. It has Classic (garden or mountain view), Superior (sea view) and Deluxe rooms. The Paolina is next to the main building and has junior suites and apartments for families on its three floors. All the rooms have wonderful sea views. The Walewska building is a short walk from the main building and has family apartments on two floors.


In our restaurants and bar you will discover and enjoy the best of traditional Italian cuisine. Our Chef Giuseppe Brescia and his team in the Don Carlos Restaurant will delight you with typical Italian and Tuscan specialities. Some of them have been chosen for their low-cal content and others for vegetarians and coeliacs. And of course there is a mouth-watering dessert trolley which has been prepared by our creative pastry chef. There is also a kid’s menu with colourful and amusing dishes to satisfy our smaller guests. Open from 19.30 to 21.30. What better place to start the day than in our breakfast room with its splendid views of the Bay of Spartaia and magnificent breakfast buffet with hot and cold Italian specialities. Lost in the luxuriant Mediterranean-scrub park and close to the swimming pool this bar serves Mediterranean dishes and grilled fish, enhanced by traditional Italian flavours to create an unforgettable culinary experience by candlelight and under a starry sky. The restaurant is open from the middle of June until the end of August, weather permitting. The terrace overlooks the splendid Bay of Spartaia with the Enfola promontory in the distance. What could be better than to sip a cocktail here at sunset, enjoy one of our chef’s specialities during the day, or just simply come here to relax? At lunchtime our menu includes many tasty salads, pizzas, fresh custom-made sandwiches, special pasta dishes and a baby menu for our smaller guests. Our complete and delicious lunchtime menu will surprise and delight you. The best place for a fast and easy snack or drink is the Beach Bar and it means you don’t even have to leave the beach. Ice-creams, cocktails and after-dinner drinks can be enjoyed beside the swimming pool or in the relaxing area under the olive trees. This bar is also on the beach and serves a selection of smoothies, frappés and cut fresh fruit, all prepared on the spot. The menu lists the calorie-count and the energy content and properties of the products used.
