The best charming hotels as selected by the Elba Unexpected Paradise team

“Hotel Ilio”

Boutique Hotel

Hotel of the year

Hotel Ilio is the only Boutique Hotel on Elba. So not a luxury hotel, but a delightfully designed hotel that has transformed the concept of hospitality into a range of services tailored to achieve the maximum comfort of every guest. First of all, the formula “choose your favorite style” gives guests the option of selecting the type of room décor and design. Secondly, the introduction of a Personal Manager, a travel specialist who is on hand to assist guests in planning every detail of their stay. For example, booking a charter to bring you to the island of Elba, or a helicopter taxi to take you home, or organizing a trip on a private boat with an expert National Park guide or reserving the best table in the most exclusive and highly rated restaurant on the island. These are just a number of the charming, Hotel Ilio solutions available.
